Christina Davidson is an Atlantic Monthly magazine correspondent, photographer and book editor based in Washington, DC.
Atlantic Monthly Magazine ..., 7 Aug 2009 [cached]
Atlantic Monthly Magazine writer Christina Davidson is on a road trip across the country, and her travels brought her to Kansas City, Kan. recently. Davidson attended the Back-to-School-Fair last month at the Kansas National Guard Armory, where families were able to receive free school supplies for the upcoming year, detailing parents arriving as early as 3:30 a.m. just to get in line.
Christina Davidson recently ..., 29 April 2009 [cached]
Christina Davidson recently organized a picnic and canoeing excursion for one of her closest friends. As it turned out, the afternoon ended up being all picnic and no boating, but no matter. She says it was a beautiful day along the Potomac River with good food and fun people.
So begins a recent entry on the food blog, created by Davidson, 34, a writer and book editor based in Washington, D.C., and a self-described "frugalicious foodie."
Davidson, who grew up south of Corydon, the youngest child of Jim and Jackie Davidson, writes on her blog that because she hosts so many parties and dinners, she would be perpetually broke if she hadn't developed a method for entertaining the masses on the cheap.
"I'm mostly self-taught (cook) but did learn a few things from my mother," said Christina, adding she got really serious about cooking when she lived in Paris about 10 years ago, surrounded by street markets lined with the freshest of vegetables, fruits and herbs.
Davidson built the blog with the help of free wi-fi at Magdalena's Café in Corydon during a recent extended stay at home due to a family illness. At the heart of her blog is a six-point "Philosophy of Frugalicious Foodies."
Burn Your Cookbooks - "Whether you're cooking a meal for your family, preparing a dinner for friends or whipping up a full spread of finger food for a massive blow-out party, I promise it will triple your expenses if you rely on cookbooks to prepare a menu," she writes.
Davidson offers some "general descriptions" for preparing dishes on the site, but don't go there looking for recipes.
"I can tell you how I make it, but I don't really use a recipe," she said, the goal being to open the mind to the art of cooking.
Stock Your Kitchen - "If you maintain a well-stocked kitchen, you'll always have the flexibility of multiple options for dinner," Davidson writes. "You can just pick up the few main ingredients, using what you already have in your cabinets to create the magic."
Davidson advises her readers to keep a lightly or fully stocked kitchen, depending on tastes and budget, and to keep an eye out for sales and stock up over time.
Stop Wasting Perfectly Good Food - "I have an obsession about not wasting food at all," said Davidson. "I cannot tell you the last time I threw away a piece of bread."
Davidson took the time once to add up the monetary value of fruit, vegetables and other perishables she threw away instead of consuming. Estimating about $10 per week, that added up to more than $500 a year.
"Just start paying closer attention to the state of your produce drawer," she writes. "Use the perfect fruits and vegetables for fresh consumption.
If you think that you'd be making use of bones that would have gone in the trash anyway, plus using up your past-peak vegetables, it's virtually free," Davidson writes.
Grow Your Own - Davidson lives in a small apartment in the center of Washington, D.C., but is still able to grow her own fresh herbs each summer, lining her windowsills with clay pots of basil, thyme, rosemary, oregano, sage, cilantro and parsley.
Make Your Own - In addition to stock, Davidson prefers to make her own salad dressings, marinades, ravioli, noodles, granola, hummis, baba ghanoush, salsa and other dips and sauces, most at a savings and all free of artificial flavors, chemicals and preservatives.
"I got into this for fun," she said.

Christina Davidson and Frank Tucci, both recently widowed after the unexpected deaths of their spouses, always wanted to have a big wedding for their second try at love.
"Both of us are closing a chapter in our lives and starting a new one," Davidson, 31, said.
Davidson started a grief support group for young widows and widowers soon after her husband, Paul, drowned in September 2009. Tucci's wife, Danielle, had died two months before of thyroid cancer.
On Oct. 22, 2009, Tucci's phone rang. He was heading out to the cemetery with his son, Frankie, then 2, to put flowers on his late wife's grave. It was her birthday.
On the line, Davidson told him about the support group she had started. She had gotten his number from her mother-in-law. And she gave him an idea.
At the time of her husband's death, Davidson had a toddler and was seven weeks' pregnant with another son.
"I never thought I would find someone to love me and help take care of my kids," said Davidson, an academic adviser at Rowan University, in Glassboro, N.J.
