10 of the Best Bloggers That Create Delicious and Frugal Recipes

Welcome to this week’s edition of Weekend Wonders!

It’s my version of a blog round-up post.  This weekend I wanted to focus on the bloggers who create yummy and inexpensive recipes for all us hard-working, money-saving people.

This weeks Weekend Wonders include bloggers who create delicious yet frugal recipes for everyone to enjoy. They share all the best tips on saving money.I’m always on the lookout for more recipes to make.  I have dozens and dozens of recipes saved in my Favorites file from before I discovered Pinterest.  Making recipes is like reading books; there’s just never enough time to make them all!

Being a vegetarian these are vegetarian friendly bloggers, but rest assured all you meat eaters, most of these bloggers also enjoy coming up with meaty dishes as well.  Since becoming a vegetarian I’ve realized that I can still eat the majority of the meals that everyone else eats.  I just simply leave out the meat that a recipe might call for.  It’ll still taste delicious-usually.

My Stomach is Full and My Wallet is too

Beth over at Budget Bytes knows how to create a recipe!  She’s saved me many a nights when I had no idea what to make and I wasn’t craving anything.  Her one pot meals are quick, tasty, and since they only require one pot, fast to clean up!  Beth also has the prices broken down for all her ingredients so you know how frugal each recipe is.  One of my favorites from Beth is her Cheesy Vegetarian Chili Mac.  So good on a chilly day!

Missy, the mastermind behind Graceful Little Honey Bee has a plethora of frugal recipes and meal ideas.  I especially like how she explains how to prepare food for the freezer.  You can freeze celery?  I honestly didn’t even know that was a thing.  It usually just sits in the drawer of the refrigerator until I throw it away.  Her tips are super helpful so nothing goes to waste!

The Weekend Wonders of 3/4/17

Oh happy weekend!

After working six days in a row this week I’m really happy to get some rest.  I even managed to finagle an extra day off this weekend and won’t be heading back to work until Tuesday.  How awesome it that?

What will I be doing with this extra day, you ask?  Well, there is one thing that has been on my mind lately.  Taxes.  I should really start working on them.  The tax deadline is slowly approaching.

Did you know we get a few extra days to file taxes this year?  The tax deadline is April 18th this year.  The 15th is on a Saturday and the 17th is an observed holiday.  Lucky us!

Welcome to the first edition of the Weekend Wonders!

I want to start featuring articles and blog posts that inspire me, and hopefully inspire you as well!  You know, those posts that you read, and then can’t get out of your head.  This way I’ll have them in an easy to find location and I can easily re-read them whenever I want!
