Review by Library Journal Reviews

Moncel launched her blog, Budget Bytes (budgetbytes.com), after economic recession forced her to adopt a strict food budget. The recipes in her new cookbook, some adapted from the blog, are written for novices who value variety as much as saving money. Many cost less than a dollar per serving, and while they rely heavily on inexpensive staples, they incorporate flavorful seasonings and garnishes. Moncel includes freezer and pantry stocking tips, sample menus, and an index of vegetarian and vegan recipes. VERDICT Though great for budget-conscious young adults, Moncel's debut is less useful than her website, as several great features (e.g., cost breakdowns, cooking times) have been lost in translation.
