114 of our family's
20 new and delicious recipes have been added!
"From our home to yours... a selection of our family's favorite frugal recipes to save you time and money!!!"
As many of you already know from my featured frugal recipe column which I began writing in 2001, my recipes are truly inexpensive and delicious, and most are very easy to make. As a busy mom of 4, they have to be! We have made a small handful of my recipes available in our recipe archives here at BetterBudgeting.com, along with other frugal recipes submitted by our readers, but please understand that most of MY family's favorite frugal recipes are ONLY available in our Frugal Family Recipes cookbook!
Frugal Family Recipes has also been selected as one of the best cookbooks from North Carolina and is a very popular and TOP quality cookbook that took three years to write. (Remember, I do have FOUR children that keep me very busy!)
By making my frugal meals at home throughout the month and cutting back on dining out we can save thousands of dollars each year! And if you like my recipes or just like saving money on everything be sure to sign up for a free subscription to our monthly ezine, Living a Better Life, if you haven’t already. We feature several new frugal recipes each month!
In order to keep the printing and shipping costs down for all of us, we have published my cookbook as an ebook which will be sent to you by e-mail after we confirm your order. (Please allow up to 48 hours for confirmation and delivery; Monday through Friday.)
When you receive your ebook edition you'll be able to open it instantly and either print it out from your home computer or save to your recipe files... 114 of our family's favorite frugal recipes for less than the price of just 1 pizza delivery for your family, only $8.99!!!
You will also need the free Acrobat Reader to open, read and print your ebook. This free software program should be already installed on your computer. If for any reason it is not you can also download it here.

If you'd like to order a custom printed version of Frugal Family Recipes; a printed copy of the 93-page ebook in a top quality 3-ring binder, the cost is $12 plus $6.95 S&H (U.S. delivery), for a total of $18.95.

time and money!!!"
I know it's not
always easy planning nice meals on a budget, especially for large families, but
living on hot dogs and macaroni and cheese is not a good option either.
And that's why I've been sharing my own frugal family recipes with our
readers since the spring of 2001, when I founded the popular money-saving Web
The recipes that are
featured in my monthly column, Michelle’s Meals on a Budget, are easy
to prepare foods that are also easy on the budget.
These are also recipes that our own children enjoy and though I can’t
promise that your kids will love every single recipe too, I certainly hope that
they will. (And please feel free to
make substitutions for special diets as needed, I promise my feelings won’t be
As an extremely busy
work-at-home mother of 4, you will find that many of my recipes can be served as
one-dish meals, saving both time and money.
I have divided these recipes into two main sections, breakfast and
lunch/dinner. (Mix them up and
serve breakfast for dinner at least once a week, it’s a great money-saver!)
I have also included a few of our favorite vegetable side dishes, though
my favorite side dish to serve is a simple garden salad.
In addition to these
helpful frugal recipes for breakfast lunch and dinner, I have also included many
of our favorite desserts and several beverages as well.
I do hope you enjoy
my family’s favorite frugal recipes! They
are straight from my own southern kitchen and include many of the featured
frugal recipes at BetterBudgeting.com, plus several bonus recipes such as
Homemade Chicken ‘n Dumplings, New Year’s Blackeye Peas with Southern
Cornbread, Creamy Potato Salad, Fried Green Tomatoes, Skillet Potatoes with
Vidalia Onions, Apple Crumb Pie, Chocolate Chip Marbled Cake with Marshmallow
Frosting, Easy Banana Pudding, Perfect Pecan Pie, Strawberry-Banana Smoothie
Delight (and Chocolate Monkey Smoothie Delight), Glazed Pecans, Michelle’s
Trail Mix for Kids, and even Snow Ice Cream!
