    Default Favourite Frugal Cooking Sites?

    I am looking for more ideas on how to eat on a low budget.

    Does anyone have favourite blogs or website to share?

    Thanks!

    while my two oldest (dd 17 & ds 15) attend public senior high school (they both homeschooled until grade 9).

    Come and visit us at Life on Prince Edward Island.

    If you want cheap and down home from scratch you want the Hillbilly Housewife. She can get pretty churchy sometime but she's awesomely frugal with a food budget and she has some darn right dirt cheap recipes.

    How about a frugal allergy-free blog or website! I feel like i dont even know where to start . . . even thinking seriously about buying grocery store meat instead of locally, ethically raised meat makes me crazy. I cant stand the way meat is processed in this country. and i dont see us going even semi-veggie, since hubby and younger son dont like beans and hubby is the only one who likes tofu.

    Rice is dh and Raven's fave food in the world, but i had to take it out of Orion's diet for a month cuz he had the runs every OTHER time . . . after 2 mo, he seems ok . . . but i dont want to push it by making it a staple. we eat a lof of (organic) potatoes, not nearly as frugal. sigh. and gluten-free pasta. yeah.

    Bummer Cara about the rice thing.. being frugal is hard when your kids can not have certain things.

    I run a Frugal Living forum. It is a lot like Hillbillyhousewife but it is secular/all inclusive. In fact, Hillbillyhousewife is the very reason I started the forum, I got tired of the preachy, churchy stuff I had to sift through on a weekly basis. It has a recipe/cooking/OAMC/grocery challenge/crafts&sewing/homesteading/homeschooling/and general discussion area among other things.

Sometimes canned foods will make me sick where the fresh ones dont. My family is not willing to eat a lot of things .. . i mean, MY HUSBAND . . not just the kids. My husband wont eat beans, or stews, or meatloaf (she has a whole big article about meatloaf). My kids wont eat chili. Raven wont eat vegetables. Or much else. A freind just suggested he could really use a feeding program to work on his limited diet. Yeah. Great. But i also think part of it is that hubby grew up poor and HATED eating crappy food. Idk, we dont HAVE to yet, and it doesnt seem likely to happen unless we really HAVE to spend a lot less. sigh.
