My dear friends Alex and Carlo have a unique and informative blog called Recession Recipes. They’ve both always been fantastic cooks and during these economically challenged times, they’ve put their talents to good use. They break down how much each recipe costs and details on how to make them. While Alex was in town last week, she threw a Recession Recipes dinner party at my house. It was so delicious AND affordable! I suggest that you check this blog at least a couple times a week to get ideas. Try some of them out. I promise you won’t be sorry!
