So, it all starts with this article on Lifehacker: Eat Like a Foodie at Home, Without Breaking Your Budget.
With the advice of some noted chefs and food writers, you can elevate the level of your home-cooked meals even while working with a tight grocery budget, producing feasts that wow for just a few dollars per serving.
We’ll show you where to shop and what to stock in your pantry to maximize your dollars-to-enjoyment ratio. We’ll also show you how to save more on buying meat (often the most expensive part of the meal) and techniques and recipes for cooking up some exquisite dishes. Note: you don’t have to consider yourself a “foodie” to use these suggestions—all you need to bring is a desire for great food.
We use the Internet quite a bit around here to track down recipes, but we mostly stay on the mainstream sites. This article pointed me at a whole bouquet of excellent food sites full of great recipes and cooling tips and advice.
Here are some of the sites:
- The Kitchn
- Smitten Kitchen
- Steamy Kitchen
- Serious Eats
- The 20 Dollar Wine Blog
Anyone else have anything to add to the list?
