In response to my blog post on saving money by cooking at home, a reader sent me a great website, Smitten Kitchen, which offers tempting recipes and photos of home-cooked meals. As an aspiring foodie myself, I also have a list of favorite food-related sites, all of which frequently post recipes that can help with meal planning (and avoiding spending more money at restaurants or on takeout).
I also heard from a reader telling me that I was wrong and that it is cheaper to eat out, because he can get an order of chicken, fish, vegetables, soup, beans, salad, plus a drink and dessert for only $6.56, plus tip. He says he gets this deal at Mama's House Buffet in Kingsport, Tenn. I guess I need to visit, because that sounds like an unbelievable deal.
Readers, if you have other useful resources for food-related savings, please post them below.
