This e-book has a little something for everyone – whether you’re just starting out, starting fresh after a big life change, downsizing, or just trying to simplify your life and be more frugal. All of these scenarios can be stressful, and the last thing you need to be expending your valuable time, money, and mental energy on is cooking. Your food needs to nourish you, make you happy, and give you a sense of accomplishment – a feeling of “I’ve got this under control.” These tips, checklists, tutorials, and recipes will help you get there. Priced at just $4.99, it is now available in every format your little heart could desire at Smashwords or, if you prefer, it’s also for sale in a Kindle version at Amazon or a Nook version at Barnes and Noble! As promised, here is the Amazon widget to use in identifying the cookware, tools, and appliances you will need to get started. You have to know what a colander looks like before you can scour yard sales in search of one!

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m NOT the greatest cook in the world. I don’t plan well, and many times, end up scratching my head at 5 oclock, having no clue what to fix. Angie’s book will fix this problem, in a frugal way. She tells you what you need to get your kitchen set up correctly, without buying things you don’t need. She has breakfast menus, date night ideas, snacks and more. Chock full of recipes and tips, you can’t go wrong with this book. Very reasonably priced for the amount of information contained.

This is an excellent cookbook for beginners or anyone who is short on time, space and cash. It is well laid out and comes with grocery and supply lists, as well as printable versions of recipes. It’s an excellent value!!!

A long time ago in a country far, far away, (England, to be exact,) I was just starting out and I had two cookery books, ‘The Pauper’s Cookbook’ and ‘Cooking in a Bedsitter’. They were perfect, for my student poverty and my greedy appetite and neither of them are available now. This book will take their place. It’s not just a cookery book, It’s a shopping guide and a lifestyle guide and it’s full of warm, sensible advice, presented in a palatable way. It makes penny-pinching into a kind of adventure, where you can play the game and win, keeping the wolf from the door with simple, tasty, heartwarming recipes. If you’re a new couple, or a student, or a change in your life means you’re counting your change, you’d do well to buy this book. If your bunnies are leaving for college, this would b e a thoughtful gift, along with a stock pot and some basil seeds.

And remember to check back here periodically, I’ll be posting new tips and recipes on this page for fans of my book!
UPDATE 12/11/11: Here’s the easiest recipe I’ve ever made, and I swear my husband nearly licked his plate he thought it was so delicious. I took 1/2 a thawed pork loin (you know, the big ones they have on sale now and then that you cut in half and freeze), put it in a covered baker, and poured a can of cherry pie filling over it. I baked it at 300 for a couple of hours (or at least until a meat thermometer reads 160 degrees). It was fork-tender and scrumptious! I bet this would work just as well with a can of peach pie filling – maybe even better!
