I spend close to 400 a month on grocies, sometimes its still not enough. So I figured if I cook from scratch the food will last. I have no oven:(

I make just about everything from scratch. 

I make sloppy joes from scratch using the copycat Manwich recipe.  It stretches a pound of ground meat to make 10 to 12 hot sandwiches.

You can make tortillas and English muffins on your stove.  No oven needed.

If you use a lot of ketchup, there's a recipe here somewhere that tastes great but costs less.

You can make pasta from scratch.  It's easy to do.

Salad dressings are easy to make.

If you have a crockpot, you can make many meals that are normally made in the oven:  scalloped potatoes and ham, meatloaf, roasts, baked potatoes, even cakes and cobblers.

If you have a grill, you can grill a pizza or two.
