Being raised in the Pacific Northwest, you learn to love things that you can do indoors, no matter the weather. Insert my love for cooking. When my husband and I started dating, I created elaborate meals to show off my cooking skills to him. I would spend hours cooking and baking detailed meals meant to impress. And hey, it worked!
But, when our son came along, I no longer had the time to spend hours making meals. Additionally, our money did not go as far as it used to. So I began searching for ways to make meals for less. Less time, Less money, Less effort- JUST LESS. With a wild toddler in tow (constantly in tow) it became a game for me to find ways to simplify mealtime for myself and my family.
I created The Thrifty Kitchen with the hopes that what you find here will allow you to spend more time and money on the things and people that matter most to you. So come along this journey- I’d love to have you with me!
