Welcome to Pocket Change Gourmet!
We are so excited to be launching this new blog! Our mission here on Pocket Change Gourmet is to share delicious food and our passions of cooking for our family using easy, creative recipes and saving money at the same time. These are not necessarily two opposites, with a little creativity and information any family can have home cooked meals that are exciting and flavorful on a budget.
Please take some time to look around! There are several really cool features that are new and fun!
Feeding Your Family on a Budget
We hope to inspire you to cook for your family while staying within your budget. We will be sharing recipes that are down-to-earth without tons of hard to find ingredients. Family is extremely important to us, we love to cook with and enjoy meals with our boys, and hope that they will some day carry on the traditional with their families.
All of our delicious homemade recipes can be found in our Recipe Index, there are some delicious family favorites.
You will also find the Ziplist Recipe box and shopping list. You can save recipes in the box and come back to them later when you are ready to cook them. It’s like having your own recipe box on-line.
Under the Seasonal tab there will be recipes that will cover Spring: “From the Garden”, Summer: “From the Grill”, Fall: “Comfort Food” and Winter: “Holidays.” And we will be stocking The Homemade Pantry with recipes for useful everyday items like homemade chicken stock, kitchen seasonings and lots more.
There are also fun categories in the sidebar; Menu Planning, Video Tutorials, 5 Ingredients or Less. Of course there is a coupon database to help stretch your food dollars even farther.
We have a couple different options for you to subscribe. You can receive a daily newsletter, with the recipe from that day or we also have a weekly newsletter that will be emailed every Monday morning with highlights from the week before, featuring the popular recipes.
