My stomach is full, and my wallet is too.
Just wanted to let you know that your website changed my life! I have scoured the internet for a cooking website for the lazy likes of me, and I finally found it. I have cooked two recipes of yours already and it just makes sense. Not overly complicated and really easy to do.
I still can not get over how great this site is. Thanks again for helping me to learn to love to cook again and on a budget.
Hi! I have followed your blog for quite a while and at the moment am working at a summer camp in Maine. This is my third summer doing so, but we will absolutely be using some of your recipes with kids :) Just wanted to reach out & let you know that you’re great and so is your new site! Cheers.
Thank you! That means a lot to me! :D
I saw that a facebook group/page called Healthy and Fit for Life has posted at least one of your recipes without giving you credit.
I don’t know if you’ll be able to see that link, but it’s your Italian Wonderpot recipe, complete with your photos, and no source link or credit given. Just a heads up.
Thank you! I hate it when people do that. I checked it out and that is the recipe and photo from the blog that I got the recipe from. I’ll be sure to let them know ASAP. Luckily Facebook has a really great copyright infringement policy and they usually take the content down within hours. :)
What a great blog! Thanks for all the great recipes. I discovered your site by accident the other day and I have already made 3 recipes. We have so many allergies in our family so I have to be very careful. Your recipes are so easy to tweak so that everyone can eat. I can’t wait for the next one.
*From the mom who strongly dislikes cooking! :)
That’s what I love to hear! Yay! :D
I found your blog months ago. It never gets old! I can trust every recipe to be full of flavor.
Thanks so much! Love your site!
I’ve read your blog for a couple of years now, and consider it my absolute go-to when it comes to meal planning. I don’t think I’ve ever had such good luck with any food blog or cook book in my entire life. The recipes are simple, but delicious, and the step-by-step pictures are complete life savers. You provide exactly what I look for when searching for new recipes to try, and the way you write and photograph your recipes makes the success rate high (which is a miracle for me ;) Thank you so much for all you do!
I just found your blog and as a college student who refuses to touch ramen, this has totally made my day! Everything looks and sounds amazing! I can’t wait to try the Italian Wonderpot.
Beth, just wanted to say that although I’ve been cooking for many years, I learn something new every time I visit your site. Like, freezing wine for cooking. I never even thought of it, but what a great idea! There’s wine in my freezer right now, thanks to you :)
And recipes. Your goulash and the beef fajitas were huge hits–and so easy–and I’ve easily got a dozen more on my “try me!” list.
Thanks for all your efforts–great job!
I found your blog through Pinterest. I try hard every paycheck to make healthy an flavorful meals for my family while staying within our budget. I’m already planning on making 4 of your recipes in the next couple weeks!
I wanted to let you know that I’ve enjoyed every Budget Byte recipe I’ve tried so far, and so has my husband. We both work, but between student loans, the mortgage and aggressive payments toward debt, we don’t have a lot of money left over for food. So I finally decided I needed to learn to cook.
I’m a visual learner and I love the step by step picture directions. Seeing the costs of the ingredients has also been really helpful, and actually learning how to cook is really making a difference for our financial situation – I’ve cut the grocery bill nearly in half and have plenty of frozen leftovers for lunches at work. Thank you!
-Caity, a fan
I LOVE the new (or maybe old and I just noticed it) ‘recipe box’. I always browse your blog when I’m hungry but stuck at work and then can never figure out to eat when its actually time to cook. This is perfect for me! I just hope I don’t get carried away and ‘save’ every one of your recipes!
I just wanted to say thanks for putting this site together. I’m living on my own for the first time as a new graduate student so this is a godsend. Exactly what I’ve been looking for.
I LOVE this website! I am newly married and poor so I constantly turn to your recipes to find something for dinner :) keep up the awesomeness!
On another note, I recently followed a link to a recipe I knew was yours on pinterest and discovered that someone took your italian wonderpot recipe and posted it on their blog without giving you credit :( idk what you do with that but it drives me crazy when people do that so I just wanted to give you a heads up and the link
Thank you! And thanks for the heads up about that website… I’ve been trying to contact them because they have pirated a LOT of my content. Going to have to go to their hosting company next. :(
I’ve read your website for almost two years–I still remember the first recipe of yours I found on Pinterest, the pumpkin pie oatmeal–and I just wanted to tell you how much I freakin’ love it. Almost every recipe of yours that I’ve tried has turned out fantastic, and I love the mix of both simple and exotic foods you post. Keep up the great work.
I just wanted to let you know how much I love and appreciate your website. My sister just introduced me to your site, and I am excited to try out your recipes. Cheap, fast, and healthy – these recipes seem perfect for me, as I’ve never cooked anything in my life other than steak.
I also like the way you introduce each recipe with a short description that “sells” it. It makes me excited to get started!
Just found your blog from a comment on another blog. Wow, these recipes look GREAT! And they are how I eat already… simple easy foods, lots of hearty vegetarian fare, with some meat dishes once or twice a week.
I have some health issues which make long prep / long cook meals impossible. Your pictures are wonderful as well. Thanks for your great blog!
I must tell you that my wife found one of your recipes on Pintrest a few weeks ago and showed me. I decided to make it (creamy tomato spinach pasta). It was fantastic. That led me to go find where that recipe came from and WHOLA! I found this wonderful site. I have to tell you that we absolutely love your recipes. So simple, yet so flavorful and delicious. Great job and thanks for sharing such wonderful recipes and helping me lower my grocery bill as well. Keep up the great work!!!
A friend introduced me to your site. I absolutely love it. Have needed a site like this, but the few I found had recipes that didn’t seem tasty. (I’m not a chef, but cook quite a bit). I have a suggestion…I like the way you include prices for everything but it would be cool to give a list of what should be staple pantry items and a list of fresh ingredients you would need. That would help me make a shopping list. Just an idea. GREAT site! Best of luck to you.
It definitely needs to be updated, but here is a small list I put together a long time ago: How to Stock Your Kitchen. I have an updated, comprehensive list my upcoming book, too. :)
I really enjoy your site! In fact, I’ve added it to the blogroll on my website. Have a great day!
what are you going to do ?! LOL
Great work! I’m really within your philosophie $)
