Recession Recipes

For many families who are struggling to get out of debt, an unexpected expense can break the budget for the month. Car repairs, medical emergencies, gaps in employment can create a cash crunch. The Hillbilly Housewife has two emergency menus for just this purpose. She lists all the recipes and a shopping list for her emergency menu. I have made many of her recipes and I would say they were surprisingly good. If you have time to check out her site I would highly recommend it. She has great frugal tips, lots of recipes and even a section on how make convenience foods at home.


  1. Thanks for the tips. I have visited her site before and she has neat ideas and recipes. Have a great week!

  2. We had an unexpected medical bill a couple of weeks ago, so this is a timely tip. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Wow! I have never seen this web-site before. I love the idea of a low cost menu one week. I could even do that one week to save money for something! Also, I really like the idea of making your own convenience foods. Great tip!

  4. The Hillbilly Housewife’s web site is great!
    Happy Tightwad Tuesday,

  5. Oh, this is a good tip. A friend shared her site a long time ago and I am glad you reminded me. I will be going and checking the site out again.
