Here’s the storyI’m newly married, living in Brooklyn, and completely broke. I worked odd freelance writing and social media gigs to get us by, but money was super tight. We survived on $50 a week for our food — groceries and takeout included! So I had to get really good at cooking…and budgeting.During this time, I discovered a deep passion for cooking and decided to shift my career because of it.
I use this blog to show others some of my favorite recipes that help me save money. Want to know how I keep my meals so cheap? I only use 10 ingredients or less. With fewer ingredients you have less you need to buy, and less to deal with when you actually hop into the kitchen to make dinner. And these ingredients include everything—protein, vegetables, fruit, baking supplies, seasonings, spices, extracts, and oils.
Outside of my blog, I work as a food writer, photographer, and recipe developer. My work has been featured in multiple national publications including Taste of Home, Eat This, Not That!, Buzzfeed, Reader’s Digest, Bustle, and many more.
