I've been cooking on a shoestring budget for over 35 years. I have many recipes and often make things from scratch. Over the years I've grown and canned my own vegetables, raised my own eggs, and did what I could to save money in my kitchen.
Sometimes the cost of making food at home depends on the cost of your ingredients in the grocery store. When the price of eggs was high this past summer, we ate less eggs than usual. When we find milk on markdown, it’s a great time to make homemade yogurt.
Listed below are recipes on my blog that I've made over the years from scratch. And this is just the tip of the iceberg on what you can do in your own kitchen. There are many blog posts and books out there on how to make your own groceries at home.
You can use these recipes to save money in your own kitchen. This is a list that I will add to from time to time, and if you have a recipe to share, please add it in the comment section. We would love to try it in our own kitchens.
