Cheap Eats

The other day, I stumbled across an awesome recipe website – Budget Bytes. It’s a collection of great recipes keeping your budget as a key factor in her recipe creations. She uses mainly ingredients you should have in your pantry already, which I definitely appreciate.

She gives wonderful step-by-step instructions, so I’ll spare you all the details of how I cooked each dish, but I did want to share with you some of the dishes we’ve made, thanks to Budget Bytes.

Coconut chicken with our own homemade spicy sauce.

For the spicy sauce, we just mixed hot sauce and honey. Yum. This is definitely a new favorite at our house.

We tweaked it a bit and used thick spaghetti instead of soba noodles and some sweet and sour sauce instead of hoisin sauce, since we didn’t have either.

And finally, Singapore Noodles.

We didn’t have hot curry powder, so I just used regular curry powder and went heavy on the hot Sriracha sauce. The noodles did have a slightly weird consistency, and they clumped together, though the dish itself was pretty good.

I’m hoping to try out the ricotta gnocchi and the roasted vegetable couscous soon too.

Let me know if you try out one of Budget Bytes’ recipes.
