What are your favorite budget recipe websites?

Just read through the recent "freezer meals" thread that was great and checked out the eatathome.com website which I loved! (Thanks BBGIRL for posting this.)

Wondering what other websites are out there for budget cooking that people use?

The three I go to a lot are allrecipes, foodnetwork and finecooking...but I'm looking for some new ones to check out.

Thanks so much!

I just popped over here because I'm dreaming of our next Disney trip in May How fun to see my website mentioned! The link is actually eatathomecooks.com (Domain squatters had eatathome.com and I refused to pay for the domain name)

As far as budget cooking, I do have lots of budget recipes and meal plans with grocery lists. Most everything I make is pretty budget friendly, but some things are super cheap.

Another site I like for budget cooking is $5 Dinners. She's got recipes and hints on finding deals, using coupons etc.

Tiffany...I just found your site this morning and really liked the recipes. Can't wait to try out a few! That's what made me start this thread. See...you are an inspiration.

budget101 has a list of copycat package recipes

http://budget101.com/102mix.htm

Those come in handy sometimes.

Tiffany - I just checked out your site and have to say it was immediately added as a favorite! Love your recipes and the fact that you have simple instructions as well!

Tiffany - I love this website! I'm suppose to be working but I can't break away from this site. I am so glad I found this. My DH's company just file for bankruptcy and we're expecting him to be laid off anyday. I'm looking for ways to save money by cooking and eating at home. I'm not the world's best cook and your website has saved the day. Thanks so much!!

Tiffany,
I recommend your site to everyone. If they ask a food question(freezer, cheap meals, how to plan a meal) I send them to you. Hope you don't mind.
