While we like to have a champagne life on a beer budget, there are often things I get a craving for and know we shouldn’t put out the cash when we could make it ourselves for a heck of a lot less. A great example is those fried onions at the popular chain restaurants! An onion runs about $0.25 and it doesn’t really take much time to turn it into a treat like our Air Fryer Cajun Bloomin’ Onion w/ Green Onion Ranch Dip.
