Recipes and resources for the budget conscious home chef. Keeping the whole family happy with these deliciously cheap home cooked meals.
When trying to find new things to eat in the past, Google has pretty much been our go-to place to for recipes and inspiration.
Trouble is, the recipes that popped up – while they sounded delicious – were full of random ingredients we never have in the cupboard and we weren’t willing to go out and get them as a one-off.
So, we started coming up with our own easy, tried and tested family recipes.
Each recipe is super easy to make whether you're a Skint Chef or not.

"We tried this it was really nice and easy to cook"
Irene who tried the Chicken and Chorizo Paella
I've used 7 days worth of your recipes and it's saved us money! A bonus too is that there is no waste at the end of the week like we normally have. Even our 2 and 3 year olds sat and ate is all with us, looking forward to trying a few more xx
