Eating right on a budget while training

I know this topic has made it's rounds before.....I'm starting up playing rugby again. I've also started a new job and moving into a new apartment so money is tight. Any tips from fellow athletes? Thanks!

Prepped apple use

So I had apples that needed to be used so I chopped them up, sauteed, then froze them. They're ready to bake into a pie but I'd like to use them for a BBQ on Sunday in a dish that's easier to serve for 20 people or so. Bars? Cupcakes? Thanks in advance!

Homemade dry baking mix

So I know dry biscuit/muffin mix can be made ahead of time and measured out as wanted but can I do this with brownies and cakes? Thanks

your dream birthday cake

So, my birthday is this week but since it's on a work night, I'm rallying my team for drinks in a local park on Sunday. I'm making strawberry bellinis (with a splash of Grand Marier/mint). I want to make a treat and it can be as simple a as bar cookie or brownie or something fancier. I just need it to be easy to transport and eaten by 12-15 people..thoughts? Thanks!

Strawberry pineapple pie

I'm making a pie with frozen fruit....do I need to add arrowroot or tapioca so it's not so juicy?

Sexy food-What do you cook to woo someone?

Definitely the most entertaining thread I 've seen in awhile, thanks to all of you so far. He's older, date two and loves Asian cuisine. I'm on the fence between the pai Thai and something braised. (I live in San Francisco, it's winter )

Sexy food-What do you cook to woo someone?

So..hot date this weekend...what do you cook without looking like you're trying? Something that can be quickly grilled/sauteed? Or something that cooks a long time that can be made ahead? Thanks!

Heavy on the mustard

My dad has has the bad habit of opening a new jar of a condiment out of the pantry without checking to see if we have an already open jar in the fridge. We now have two open jars of Dijon, two French's yellow, and a jar of whole grain mustard. What are your favorite recipes that include mustard? Thanks!
