Reminder: Frugal Feasts' cookbook giveaway

Bookmark and Share

Each Wednesday morning, I will offer a frugal recipe based on what's on sale at the Triangle grocery stores with a cost breakdown. 

I know there are a lot more experienced frugal cooks out there among our readers, especially those folsk at savvydollar. And so to entice you to share some of those recipes in future Frugal Feasts posts, I'm going to give away a cookbook. It is
appropriately titled: "Eat Cheap but Eat Well: Over 120 Penny-Pinching Recipes," by Charles Mattocks, also known as The Poor Chef. Random sidenote: Mattocks is a nephew of Bob Marley.  

The book is filled with interesting recipes, such as turkey,
cranberry and pistachio salad and beef in beer.  Each recipe is
designated as costing under $5 for 4 servings , under $7 for 4 servings or for those special occasions, under $7 for 2 servings. 

Send your frugal recipes to The deadline is noon next Wednesday. 

The first reader recipe to appear on this blog as a Frugal Feast will get a copy of this cookbook.
