My husband and I have been married just over a year and I still struggle with planning meals, staying frugal and healthy, and avoiding boredom. Let’s face it: it’s not always easy to come up with a meal that feeds only 2 people! In fact, if I didn’t have to make dinner every night, I wouldn’t. This website is designed to help other newlyweds by sharing my recipes, tips and ideas for cooking and saving money. We have a monthly grocery budget of $175. Occasionally I will spend a tad over that amount, but I have yet to go over $200 a month for our groceries. We eat out usually once a weekend on our date night, and brown bag our lunches to work.
I must stress to you though, I am not a foodie. My recipes have more family member’s names in them than French words. I think there’s an art to putting dinner on the table every night, though. I grew up in a small family and never really learned how to come up with dinner. In the last year I have had to teach myself, and I’m still learning! So I hope you will join me and check back often to see what I’m cookin’ up!
