    Def Food Network.com and search for Semi Homemade with Sandra Lee. Her stuff is great and very budget friendly. Also, Rachel Ray has some great ones too.

    I was just introduced to e-mealz.com where they give you a weeks worth of menus (dinner) AND THE SHOPPING LIST! I chose Aldi's which may or may not be in your area, but you can also choose from other area stores such as Wal-Mart or Target etc. It actually takes that stores prices in your area and creates a shopping list so you know EXACTLY what you are going to spend on those meals.

    What I do is just cross off anything I already have and then add anything I will need for breakfast or lunches. Very quick, very budget friendly since I've chosen a store that is the cheapest in our area.

    Other websites are recipezaar.com or frugalrecipes.com
    hillbillyhousewife.com.
