Tight Budget, Tiny Kitchen, and No Time: How to Eat Well in Your First Apartment

From the product description: “This e-book has a little something for everyone – whether you’re just starting out, starting fresh after a big life change, downsizing, or just trying to simplify your life and be more frugal. All of these scenarios can be stressful, and the last thing you need to be expending your valuable time, money, and mental energy on is cooking. Your food needs to nourish you, make you happy, and give you a sense of accomplishment – a feeling of “’’ve got this under control.’ These tips, checklists, tutorials, and recipes will help you get there.”

Tight Budget, Tiny Kitchen, and No Time: How to Eat Well in Your First Apartment by Angie Ballard is a long title, but quite appropriate for this book. This is a great resource, not only for students or young married couples just starting out, but also for anyone who appreciates frugality, timely advice and great-tasting, money-saving recipes. It is practical and timely. I especially like her advice that “not a single one of these things need to match” (referring to dishes, glasses and silverware) and that most of the appliances don’t “need to be new.” There are sections for Freezer Cooking and Shopping Techniques (I even learned a few things despite the fact that I’ve been married and living on my own for 30 years!)

My favorite part of this book is the section with all the wonderful recipes (including vegetarian) for main dishes, side dishes, salads and desserts.

The author also includes a section with a Master List for groceries, which is perfect for the newly married couple (or college students) to print out and take to the grocery store.

An index at the back of the book makes it easy to find any topic or recipe in the book.

Thank you, Angie, for creating this wonderful book with great recipes and timely advice!

Highly recommend!

  1. What an very useful book. I remember those days and it can be hard to figure what types of healthy foods to eat on a budget. A book like this helps young people figure out their budgets better and remain conscious of what they put in their bodies. Down the road, health care costs can really add up.

    • That was EXACTLY my reason for writing this book, Barb. And I think it’s made my son less afraid to test his skills in the kitchen rather than relying on fast food 🙂
