I am a huge fan of a home cooked meal but not all recipes are created equal. Some are really expensive and some just don’t work for our family. This is a great list of money saving recipes that our family has tried and enjoyed. I will be updating this post as I add new recipes to the site. Make sure to pin this post so you can find it later. I have tried to break these recipes up by what type of recipe they are to simplify things.
Money Saving Recipes | Easy Recipes you can make
Chicken is often the cheapest meat to get when you are living on a budget. I use boneless skinless chicken breasts for these recipes but you can use other cuts for some of the pies and casseroles if that is what you have on hand. I love chicken but I love when you can do something different with it. You can only eat the same chicken recipe so much before losing interest.
I don’t eat as much pork but once in a while I really enjoy it. These are a few of our favorite pork recipes. That Mojo pork will always be one of my favorites and I love that it is incredibly simple to put together.
Ground beef has become very expensive as of late but there are still ways to enjoy beef without breaking the bank. Whether you are adding in beans, baking it into a pie, or making a fun twist on lazagna you are sure to find something that will save you money while enjoying a great meal.
We love dessert in this house. I have quite a few favorites but my key lime pie will always be a favorite. I love a really tart key lime pie. If you can’t enjoy a tart pie, try out that easy apple pie. It was very easy and that really surprised me.
