Recap Review, March 14 Edition

This week turned out to be all about food.  Hey, when you’re on a great roll, why spoil it?  And with so many diverse food-related blogs out there, how could we go wrong?

Week In Review, March 14, 2009

  • The week started with a review of Clara’s Depression Cooking blog.  It’s a place to learn some history from the best source–one who lived through it! As well as some great recipes and food-saving tips.
  • In keeping with the theme of low-cost cooking, we rounded up to a more modern take on budgeting in the kitchen at Erin Chase’s $5 Dinners blog.  Save some cash and learn some excellent recipes.
  • Next we caught up with Stephanie “the Crockpot Lady,”  who turned a year-long self-imposed challenge into a mainstream media interest and book deal.  She succeeded with A Year of Crockpotting, and has the blog and recipes to prove it.
  • To finish up the week of reviews we took our blog reviews on the road, stopping in on Krista in London.  Krista is deep into her “market research” and posting up great reviews of restaurants in London and in her sideline travels.

This should give you more than enough to do this weekend, trying out all these great recipes and more.  Catch up on last week’s blog reviews while you’re at it!  Recap Review, March 7 Edition is here!

$5 Dinners

Following along in the footsteps of Clara’s economically-inspired cooking blog, I’ve come across a more modern, but equally tasty, take on budget cooking. You can find it, too, at Erin Chase’s $5 Dinner blog, where she’s cooking up great eats on a budget, and giving you every last tool to follow along and save some dough on some dough (sorry for the pun, couldn’t resist :)).

$5 Dinners – Why You Should Go

Why should you go? Very simple. I think I’ve already told you. But it does bear repeating, and detail.

Erin Chase is a Mom living in the real world, who has risen to her self-imposed challenge of minimizing her household food budget and coming up with great meals on a budget. Every dinner that Erin prepares really is managed on a budget of $5 (set of course, in her home region), and no, it’s not dinner for one—Erin is married and has two young children, and is feeding her family nightly on $35 or less each week. Need proof? Erin’s got it. She puts her money where her mouth is and outlines the cost of all prepared foods, along with the recipe and shopping strategies. She also offers up a pre-planned menu and shopping list for the week, among many great discussions, tutorials, a full recipe index, and much, much more.

Summing Up $5 Dinners

What started as an exercise and budgeting challenge for Erin has grown into an addiction. Visit her blog and you’ll be hooked, too—and you’ll never want to pay full price to eat well again.
