Introducing The Budget Bytes App, from cookbook author and winner of Saveur's Best How-To Food Blog in 2016, Beth Moncel. Beth has built a loyal following of millions of fans by delivering delicious recipes designed for small budgets on her blog www.budgetbytes.com. Now, she's put 500 of her most popular recipes into the Budget Bytes App, complete with step-by-step photography and voice guidance from Beth herself. She'll personally walk you through every recipe, right in your kitchen. Cooking on a budget shouldn't mean canned beans and ramen noodles night after night. Welcome to the world of delicious recipes designed for small budgets. Beth adds, “I’ve partnered with the tech-savvy team at SideChef to bring you an easy to use app packed with more features than I could have imagined. It’s like an interactive and customizable cookbook with my voice coaching you through each recipe! Cool, right?? We’ve pre-loaded the app with the 500 best recipes from years past and also loaded 300 credits into your account to jump start your access to additional new recipes in the marketplace. All new recipes from the blog will be uploaded into the marketplace where you can choose which recipes you want to load into your app. You can continue to earn free credits by simply visiting marketplace once per day, commenting on recipes, or uploading a photo of your creation. Why am I so excited about this app? Well, let me just list a few of the super cool things it can do… -Deliver the recipes you love faster and easier without waiting for a website (or annoying ads) to load. Plus, save recipes to personal “cookbooks” to access your favorites even faster. -Filter recipes by price to get recipes that are the best fit for your budget. -Adjustable serving sizes let you cook the amount that you want and reduce food waste. -Access how-to technique videos right in the instructions so you can cook with extra confidence. -Cook with me, in real time! We wanted to make this app extra personal, so you’ll have my voice giving you step-by-step instructions as you cook.”
I use this app every day, my husband and I both love the food. The recipes are easy and affordable...and delicious.
This was a huge hit at our table. Easy to make and great flavor!
It would be awesome if there was a check list for each recipe for going to the grocery store. Otherwise great app
All the recipes I’ve tried are easy and delicious. The ingredients are simple and everything is very do-able - no exotic ingredients or complicated techniques.
I love this app!! Easy instructions for tasty food! I am the type who doesn’t want a ton of ingredients and need to cook a meal in 20-60 minutes. This has been amazing!! Plus creative, affordable meals 😊
I love this app. It has everything I need and more. It makes cooking really easy and very affordable. Thanks for developing this app!
So I pay $2.99 for a completely dysfunctional app. Not only do I have to “sign-up” for an app I already paid for, I can’t access recipes without using “credits” to unlock them. How do you get credits you ask? You HAVE to interact with the app on a daily basis, leave reviews, etc. Then you can “unlock” the recipes you seemingly already paid to have. Ridiculous. Are here people trying to emulate EA games? I can tell you it won’t go well. Not to mention the login function didn’t work when I attempted to log in several times. When it finally did work, the app FROZE MY ENTIRE PHONE. I had to depress my power off button and even that wouldn’t work. Suddenly it would come out of the freeze and things would be wonky. Deleted the app and will be asking for a refund from iTunes as this is such a disingenuous way to do business with customers. At least make the app free with all the hoops you make your paid users jump through. I hope this app fails miserably in its current state.
Overall I love how it looks and operates. My only frustration is the search. It is very limited and doesn’t turn back results that I’m looking for when I know the content is there.
I use this app quite often when I’m at a loss for what to make for dinner! The recipes are compatible with what I usually keep on hand in my pantry.
Upset that i don’t have the access to the recipes I have on the desk top version. My hope was to be able to meal plan on the go
