Why Taste of Home for
Budget Recipes?

  • Taste of Home is a magazine full of real recipes from real people. These recipes use "everyday" or common ingredients that are readily available.
  • Most of the recipes don't use many convenience products, which makes them less costly. At the same time, our recipes are quick and friendly and may use canned chicken broth rather than home made stock, or an angel food cake mix to make a fancier dessert, to save you time and effort.
  • Recipes feature several seasonal ingredients that allow you to take advantage of "on sale" grocery items.
  • Taste of Home recipes don't require unique gadgets or pans to prepare. They are created using everyday household appliances and dishware.
