Cooking on a Budget

I like to cook, and my wife says I’m pretty good at it. I have to admit I have watched a few cooking shows like Paula Deen, Rachael Ray, and Steven Raichlen’s Barbeque U. These shows provide good ideas for putting dishes together, use of ingredients and spices. However I seldom use the recipes, either because the ingredients are not always readily available, or just too expensive and not healthy. Shinning light on this is Dean’s recent news about having Type 2 diabetes.

Ray is great because her meals can be prepared in a short period of time, and sometimes has an eye on the budget and health. Cooking Light also has some good recipes. Lastly, E-mealz is a great service that helps to plan recipes and grocery shopping together, providing economical and tasty meals.

One thought on “Cooking on a Budget

  1. I love Rachel Ray’s cookbooks! Older cookbooks like original Joy of Cooking, the Betty Crocker Cookbook or BHG Cookbook are great for budget cooking also because they focus on simple, easy recipes from the pre-foodie era of duck confit, black truffle powder and other exotic ingredients that are impossible to find/pronounce/afford.

    I’ve never heard of E-Mealz, but it looks like a great resource. Thanks for sharing =)
