The focus here is on low-cost, home-cooking from scratch. The recipes are all tested in a real kitchen with hungry children, stalking cats, begging puppies and a playful husband underfoot. The ingredients are affordable and readily available in most areas.
There is a wealth of information here. It’s like a gold-mine for frugal cooks. Highlights include:
- Store-bought convenience foods that are usually good buys.
- How to reduce the fat content of regular ground beef.
- Chicken tips — buying, using, and cooking.
- A recipe section even more extensive than the site I mentioned earlier.
- Best buys for your budget — foods that are usually good buys at the supermarket.
- A couple of weekly meal plans: a $45 emergency menu for 4 or 6 people and a $70 low cost menu for 4 to 6 people.
- The Hillbilly Housewife blog contains a lot of meditation on faith and homeschooling, but it also includes some great entries on cheap food, such as this post on the high cost of a healthy diet.
There’s lots more there, though. I recommend you take twenty or thirty minutes to browse the site.
