Cheap, Fast, Good! Cookbook

Need money fast? Look no further than your kitchen.

This book is full of recipes for budget meals, but it's a lot more than that. Times were just starting to get tough when we wrote Cheap. Fast. Good! but we had no idea just how bad the economy would get. If you're dismayed by rising grocery bills and shrinking bank accounts, this book offers common sense advice that's easy to put into practice to save big bucks. We don't know about you, but we don't have time to grow our own vegetables and freeze enough for the coming winter like our grandmothers did when we were kids. But like our grandmothers, we'd like to feed our families nutritious and delicious home-cooked meals that don't cost a fortune.

Cheap. Fast. Good! is a way to cut through both the budget dilemma and the time dilemma with 275 recipes for great, family-pleasing dishes, most of which take under 25 minutes to prepare and average out to cost less—and usually far less—than $2 a serving.

Saving money in the kitchen is as simple as one four-letter word: Cook. But it's a waste of time and money unless you're cooking food you and your family are going to love. So we've assembled as many time-and-money-saving tips, techniques, strategies, and solutions we could muster to help busy cooks fight back at the cash register without feeling like a penny pincher.
