Budget Bytes by Beth Moncel-A Cookbook Review

If there ever was a time to learn to cook budget meals, this is it.

Some of you might know I’ve run a site called Budget Smart Girl www.budgetsmartgirl.com since 2005. Food has always been a popular topic, especially buying and eating healthy food on a budget.

A few years ago, a book called Budget Bytes came on my radar.

I was eager to try some of the recipes and bought a copy.

Some budget cookbooks have been a bit of a let down, either so-so dishes or recipes that despite being labeled budget friendly, are anything but. Budget Bytes was the exception.

It’s been given the honor of one of the cookbooks that’s housed in my kitchen (instead of my downstairs bookshelf). It’s one of my go-to picks for everyday foods.

I have to say I’ve already made at least 50% of the recipes and I can only think of one other cookbook I can make that claim.

Each recipe I’ve tried, from the parmesan biscuits to chorizo sweet potato enchiladas I’ve loved. None of the recipes are too complicated, yes, some you might need some basic cooking skills, but as with all recipes, read them through a couple of times so you increase your chances of a near perfect dish.

The ingredients are easy to source too and many of the ingredients you probably already have on your pantry shelf.

Beth also sells meal plans that you might want to check out at www.budgetbytes.com

This cookbook gets a five start review from me.
