10 websites for cheap & easy meals

Hey ya'll!

I don't know if you know this or not.... but I'm a grad student! (I guess you might have figured that out from my blog name). I am always on the hunt for cheap (student budget, what?) and quick meals. I would love to say I have tons of time to spend in the kitchen...but I don't! I am always hunting for new recipes that fit my budget and my schedule. 
I wanted to share with you my top 10 websites I visit when I need a little inspriation


  The Girl Who Ate Everything : Cheap & Easy Meals

She has been an absolute favorite from Pinterest and her recipes hit the spot every time!


 Mix and Match Mama

Shay has had the best recipes for years. I linked her site, and you can scroll down to the side menu and she has so perfectly labeled all her food posts! I often search her "Italian" section when I am craving some pasta!
She also has the perfect cookbooks for sale on Amazon:

Meal Planner

Good Eats


Corey's Family Favorites have become my favorites! I love a good comfort meal, and she's got you covered!


Carrie has a whole blog dedicated to cheap meals for families. She even includes money saving tips!


The name says it all, but there's freezer options, whole 30 and a frugal pantry option! Jessica is so organized and her recipes are easy to follow.


I have used this website when I am looking for a quick casserole for church or football. Stephanie has a whole "football" Friday section. I love her story for "plain chicken" and I love her recipes even more!


I don't feel like I can have a recipe list without including the six sisters! Probably the most pinned website to my Pinterest! The million dollar spaghetti saved my tail this basketball season!


Allrecipes was my go -to when I was making meals for 15 kids 3x a week. They had my back with cheap meals for a large crowd. I also use them for when I cook for 2. It's a great site with so many options. 


The Frugal Girls shares recipes with only 5 ingredients! Heidi has great insight to cooking with limited time. She's a go-to when I need to use up items from the pantry. 


The Busy Budgeter's 15 minute meals are my jam. They are the perfect meal when you  have no time!
