15 Dessert Recipes for Under $1 per serving – from ALL YOU magazine

Each month now, I anxiously await my issue of All You magazine.   This Rhubarb dessert recipe is only one of the reasons why, but I had to share because it illustrates perfectly the types of recipes you can find inside each issue.

The Individual Rhubarb Crisps are a wonderful, fresh dessert idea for summer.  The recipe is simple to follow and allows you to serve something special to your friends and family.  It also allows you to entertain a crowd without blowing your budget. Rhubarb is in season so this dessert is perfect for your Memorial Day Weekend and BBQs all summer long.  I love that I can bake these delicious Crisps ahead of time and serve them at my party for under $1 per person (if you prepare ahead and bake during the party, you can serve them warm).  With a scoop of ice cream on top or some whipped cream it becomes an over the top dessert that the adults and kids will love.

ABOUT All You magazine:

In my opinion, All You magazine is a publication that packs a powerful punch and it truly lives up to its tag line: ‘Enjoy Life for Less’!   I buy tons of magazines and scour them to find the best recipes, tips, trends and ideas.  I consider it research for what we do here at the Partybluprints Blog, so I’m serious about knowing what’s available on newsstands each month.  For as much as I search, I have to say I’m often disappointed. So many times, the ‘pretty picture’ or a celebrity recipe just doesn’t work for my ‘real life’.  You know the real life where time and money are scarce resources and kids and husbands have to also enjoy what I’m serving or celebrating.  So I’m pleased to share that one of my best discoveries has been All You magazine.  In the last issue, I turned the corner down on almost every page – that’s my way of bookmarking a good idea.  Plus, there was almost $50 in coupons and 38 recipes for $1 or less per serving.

What I really appreciate is that All You articles are written like blog posts – short, sweet and packed with good information.  It’s a resource for new ideas every month and I LOVE that I don’t have to flip through 9 pages of ads to get to the article.  What All You isn’t is beach reading, although if you’re like me and have to keep a watchful eye on 3 kids in the ocean, I guess you can say it is!   The categories in the table of contents include:  Your self, Your health, Your world, Your home, plus a list in the table of contents of all coupons contained in the issue with the value, terms and page number.  You can also connect with All You magazine online and on facebook and twitter.

All You magazine is published monthly with occasional extra issues by the Time Inc. Lifestyle Group and sold on newsstands at Walmart stores nationwide.  If you’re like me and are one of the few who don’t live close to a Wal-Mart, you can get a subscription online by clicking below.  And YES, seriously, All You magazine is available for just $1.66 an issue!

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF and line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil. Make filling: Combine sugar, rhubarb and cornstarch in a large bowl. Let stand, stirring occasionally, until sugar and cornstarch are dissolved, about 10 minutes.

  3. Spoon fruit into 6 6-oz. ramekins. Scatter topping evenly over filling. Place ramekins on lined baking sheet and bake until fruit is bubbling and topping is browned, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool. Serve warm and topped with whipped cream, if desired
