Budget bites: Simple veggie harvest soup

Whether you're tight on cash due to unforeseen costs (plumbing emergencies, dental emergencies, last minute trips to Vegas…) or you're simply trying to save on your monthly grocery bills, having tasty, easy and affordable recipes at the ready can make your budget-cooking adventures a breeze.

My new blog series, “budget bites,” will try to guide you through the process of budget cooking.

I'll make sure to include something for everyone: ” target=”_blank”>sweet and savory, good for you (like the recipe below) and ” target=”_blank”>multi-course meals and everything in between.

I'll also include tips on pantry staples that will help you avoid flavor-fatigue–just because you're on a budget doesn't mean you want to eat the same thing four nights per week. Well, maybe you do–but options are good!
