This cookbook helps organize your kitchen and motivates you to think ahead of time about meal planning, which is so instrumental in saving time and money on food preparation. Tons of easy ideas to change up breakfast and lunch menus. Also, great information on how to "batch cook" and use your freezer. I highly recomend this one and can't wait to start cooking from it!

I loved this cookbook. You can't find a lot of these exact recipes online (I know b/c I've been trying to find *her* exact recipes to pin and you find "close to but not quite" versions). This would be worth owning. Even my husband flipped through it and was excited about many of the recipes. It's nice that she breaks down the cost but not necessary, the recipes seem solid and frugal just by looking, but it's nice of her to try and back it up with numbers. I'd highly recommend this books for cook ...more

I liked this cookbook much better than her dinner cookbook for some reason. I have tried quite a few recipes alreay and they are big hits. Every single breakfast recipe looks yummy. I especially likes how she gives frugal hints and how to save time in the kitchen for breakfast and lunch. I also like how she is very "from scratch and healthy" type cooker for me. This would be a book worth buying once I have some money :)

I have a really hard time believing I can get some of these ingredients for the prices the author claims to pay. However, I did like the breakfast portion of this book. There were quite a few recipes that used simple ingredients and still sound both appetizing and affordable. The lunch portion of the book wasn't as appetizing (too many pasta salads for my taste, for one.)

I have to be honest...I checked the publication date and although I know food prices have risen tremendously in the last year or so, it seems almost unbelievable to have obtained two heads of broccoli for only .79. Maybe she's pro-rating for only the amount she used, but her totals seemed a bit under the norm. However, she did have some good recipe ideas.

This book has quite a few good recipes, I picked it up again to try to find some more good ones to add to my menu. I really recommend it.
