‘Desperation Dinners’ duo show off their moves at grocery store

“If you go grocery shopping with Alicia Ross and Beverly Mills, study the circular first. The queens of frugal menu planning — and authors of ‘Desperation Dinners’ as well as the new ‘Cheap. Fast. Good!’ — recently let me tag along on their search for ingredients to make two of their recipes … The friends were thrilled to find that two of the items we needed, apples and chicken, were on sale. That’s crucial, because the goal of ‘Cheap. Fast. Good!’ is to cook within a budget of $2 per serving.”
