Christiane Jory has written a cookbook containing gourmet recipes made with items exclusively from the 99-cent Only Store. There are more than 100 recipes featuring appetizers, side dishes, main courses and desserts and not one of the ingredients cost more that .99. Christiane and her cookbook has been featured in major newspapers and on TV shows like Good Morning America. I watched a video of her on the 99-cent Only Store's website making appetizers from Pillsbury bread stick dough and a can of pumpkin pie filling.
The 99-cent Only Stores feature a wide array of food including milk products, fresh produce like potatoes and berries, canned goods and spices and nothing costs more than .99. I don't know about you but I'm impressed! Even if you don't live near a 99 cent Only Store, you could still make use of these recipes, using ingredients you get on sale.
