This site is dedicated to showing you that even with a limited grocery budget you can cook good meals for your family. There are lots of menu plans, helpful advice and tips and many tried and true recipes. Some of them from my family archives. I hope you enjoy your visit here at Cooking On A Budget.
Most of us know what's taught in this video but someone just starting out in the kitchen may find this helpful. Aside from cutting and seeding there is a section which tells you how to pick out a ripe melon. I find that with Cantaloupe (the orange melon), if it is not ripe when you buy it at the grocery store leave it on your counter for 2-3 days and it will continue to ripen. I love that melons are so healthy and can be incredibly flavorful when ripe. So instead of grabbing the nearest cupcake or cookie, make a healthy snack like the Cone Fruit Cups.
