Budget Bytes completely changed how I shop and cook. I never come home anymore and wonder what we're going to have for dinner. I don't buy pre-packaged anything - it's all made from scratch, for a fraction of the cost.
It has a ton of recipes that AREN'T on the website, and gives shopping or cooking tips appropriate for each one. The only thing I don't like about the cookbook is that the prep/cooking time isn't listed for each recipe. If you think you don't have time to cook, or if you don't know HOW to cook, this cookbook is for you. I'll be buying a dozen or so copies to give as birthday and Xmas gifts this year.
In short, if you're a big fan of Budget Bytes, buy this book, there will be recipes in it that are not available online. It doesn't especially wow me, but since the website has grown so much over the years in popularity and seems much more polished, I'd expect a similarly polished new cookbook to come out sometime in the near future - hopefully with photos!
I was delighted to discover that this book offers a lot that's not available online, and even the familiar recipes have been reworked in significant ways. I probably use this book more on the day-to-day than any other cookbook, especially now that I'm back at work and faced with coming up with quick dinners when I get home. The Banana Bread Baked Oatmeal has become a staple on weekend mornings (when it makes a great toddler breakfast), and the Orzo-spinach-goat-cheese recipe has been a lifesaver on nights when I am low energy and yet still need to feed myself.
Honestly, I wish I had found this book sooner, as I think it would have helped me break out of the take-out trap when I was single and living on my own. I didn't really lean in to cooking until my late 20s, and I may have done it sooner if I had something with this kind of casual, pragmatic, yet satisfying approach to doing it day-to-day, and not just on special occasions.
If you like the blog, do yourself (and the author) a favor and pick this up. I can day with certainty that if there are more cookbooks to come, I'll be buying those, as well.
