My first official cooking guide for all of you, woohoo!First, let me start off by saying this. I am not a professional cook. I have no degree. I have no chef-ing experience. I just love to cook and create my own variation for recipes – and have a desire to share them with all of you. I haven’t poisoned my husband yet with my cooking, so I take that as a good sign.
Hey fam! So first, a bit of news. If you haven’t already noticed on some of my social accounts, I have a big announcement. I have officially been offered a writing job with Bustle! Every week I get to write awesome lifestyle content for the site. I seriously just write all day. It’s a dream come true.
One of the things that Oliver & I absolutely adore doing together is cooking. We love to plan out recipes, grocery shop, cook together, pair our meats with wines, and evaluate new meals for our collection of “married people” meals. Ever since the wedding (which I can proudly say we cooked quite a bit on our honeymoon), we have noticed a decline in our budget when it comes to groceries. This, of course, meant we had to start getting creative with our cooking adventures. Here’s a few tips that we have gathered (both during our time dating and marriage) when it comes to saving money in the kitchen.
A few days ago I came upon this brilliant article by The Every Girl titled “The Only Grocery Shopping List You’ll Ever Need,” I was amazed at how simple yet perfect their list was, and how quick that meal plan is to put together.
Wanting something like this myself, I decided to put together a small graphic for all of you on the fruits and vegetables to focus on in the spring, summer, winter, and fall. Save yourself the energy of having to decipher what is in-season and out-of-season by saving this on your phone, your desktop, your Pinterest, etc.
