Jonni McCoy's new cookbook

Hi everyone,

I just recieved Jonni McCoy's new cook book Miserly Meals. I was hoping there would be more recipes in it. Can anyone recommend a good frugal cookbook? I don't mind cooking from scratch as long as it isn't too complicated.
Thanks

I like the More With Less Cookbook by Doris Janzen Longacre. It's filled with some really great recipes and is totally about living/eating simply. I had to order it as no bookstore had it. It also has quite a bit of plain reading info, too. My biggest complaint was that it was kind of expensive (about $20.00) but I looked for it for awhile and was unable to find a used copy. I did check it out from the library and read through it before I bought it. It's pretty inspiring!

Jonni McCoy also recommends this cookbook in her Miserly Moms book. What's her cookbook like?

Good Luck!

Angela

The recipes in Miserly Meals look pretty good. I just got it Saturday. I like the fact that it has the nutritional information for each recipe. I only wish their were more recipes. I do have "Not Just Beans" too. I like the dessert recipes in it. I am going to try that "More With Less" cookbook.

I have the "More With Less" cookbook. (Grew up with it really) I checked the library for the "Not Just Beans" cookbook. They didn't have it and I haven't requested it.

I love the Not Just Beans website, too. Each month I would try to win a cookbook (being frugal minded and all ) but I finally gave up and just ordered one off the website! They weren't charging shipping and of course no tax, so I actually came out better than if I had bought one at a bookstore!

Here's the website - www.notjustbeans.com

Good luck!
