Hi, I’m Sarah.

I love food, I eat well, and I think everyone else should too.

The first incarnation of this blog was fourmeals.com. For about nine months I was on a mission: eat good food, four times a day, on a $40 a week budget. It was a wonderful experience and taught me how to be more resourceful, savvy, and creative in the kitchen. As part of my budget planning, I put together weekly menus and shopping lists, which are still available for your perusal under the Four Meals tab.

Between May 2012 and June 2013, I took a blogging break. I finished grad school, did some traveling, and kept on cooking, though without keeping track of a budget. During my hiatus, I missed posting what I was making – this site has served as an online recipe box of sorts for me – but didn’t have the time to do the extensive planning, budgeting, and numbers of posts I started out with.

Now to the present! I’ve decided to start posting again, though more casually. I won’t be keeping weekly budgets or menus, I’ll merely be sharing tasty culinary adventures that I want to remember for myself and share with you all! In keeping with the original flavor of this blog, posted recipes will be tasty, affordable, and accessible. Hence, the name change.

Questions, comments, and feedback is always welcome.

Happy eating!

  1. I would love the recipe for the homemade crackers! Those were AWESOME. I forgot about them until they rotated on one of the pictures on this site.

  2. I’m sure I’ll get to it eventually. In the meantime I’ll send you an email. Making your own crackers isn’t exactly low maintenance, and I think by the time you’re all said and done, it’s probably about as cost effective as just buying a box of wheat thins, but they were SO GOOD!

    • Thank you Kara! I’m loving your blog (especially with the pumpkin binge everyone is on this time of year), it makes me want to get baking! I’ll definitely be looking to your posts for inspiration, but if you have any specific ideas or favorites for me, I’d love to hear them.

  3. Hi Sarah,
    Christmas Eve tomorrow here. We are not cooking the traditional. We never do. On Christmas Day, we will cook roast rib of beef, Yorkshire puddings, potatoes and roast winter vegetables. We will have smoked salmon and home made brown bread to start. A meringue cake with raspberries to finish. There will be no photos or posts. It is a family time. Wishing you a happy Christmas and all the best in 2011.

    • Sounds wonderful Conor! You can see I’ve been pretty neglectful of the blog around Christmas as well – definitely for the best.

      I’ve never had Yorkshire pudding… if you make them post holidays, post it for me, I’d love to give them a try.

      I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and have a happy New Year!
