Lidia reminds viewers that cooking doesn't have to be expensive, you just have to get creative in the kitchen. Lidia shares a cost-cutting vegetarian dish, Vegetable Soup with Poached Eggs. The conversation continues with Mark, Lidia's friendly honey-maker. They discuss a traditional Italian cookie starring honey and breadcrumbs. Mark gets resourceful and stretches this dessert into two by adding them to his honey ice cream. And a simple Poached Chicken Giardiniera Salad, stretches the buck and helps create two meals out of one. The name of the game today is getting more out of every meal.
