Help me with my complicated foreign tax situation please!

Hi. I know you are not my accountant, but if you have any experience filing taxes with foreign earned income, I'd love to hear from you!
We lived in two different (non-US) countries in 2011, so we were never resident in the US. But we have income from both countries. When we lived in the US, we always used Turbo Tax, but the word on the street is that Turbo Tax is awful for foreign-earned income.
Is my only alternative to get an accountant who knows what they're doing (currently in the UK)? Our income for the year is so low (probably less than $30,000) that it does not seem worth it to pay an accountant. Is there any way I can figure this out myself, or is there some software that will do it (properly) for me?
