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.”
Budget bytes the site is fantastic, but this Ap is badly designed. I had to click the heart four or five times before it would keep the like on the recipe. Touching the share icon sends a link to the AP not the RECIPE I had been intending to share. There’s no easy way to comment on a recipe other than to scroll forever through all the instructions. Very disappointed.
Suddenly after this update, I can’t filter the recipes I see. The vegan button doesn’t work anymore! Please fix this. I don’t want to see the meat and chicken recipes—only vegan. I’m about to give up!
I want my $3 back. This app is horrific. One: you have to click, go back, click, go back, multiple times to get the save recipe options to even show up. THEN the heart doesn’t work. THE APP HASNT BEEN UPDATED IN OVER A YEAR. While their recipes on their website are free it COSTS MONEY to get access to the recipes in this app- as in they literally won’t give you the recipe unless you pay for it. WHEN ITS ALREADY ONLINE FOR FREE. When searching for recipes on the app you’ll get about 10ish (usually less) results so WHY PAY FOR THE APP. This app is a scam for money, never updated with fixes, and unethical.
I’m having problems with my email in the app. I can’t send ingredients for recipes to my email because the app says I don’t have email set up in settings, but there’s nowhere in settings to set up email? I see where I can change the password, but that’s all I can see regarding email.
I love Budget Bytes! I love the many recipe options for all occasions and most are simple and quick to make! However, it is not worth paying $2.99 for an app when you have access to it for free online. You don't have access to all recipes like you do online. You have your earn credits to get more recipes. Don't get me wrong, it is a great app for cooking, but if I'm paying $2.99 for an app, I should have access to all the recipes that are available online for free. I am greatly disappointed.
The app will show around 4 to 10 recipes and then when you continue to scroll it either won’t load or just scrolls the same 4 to 10 recipes you just saw. Waste of money! Just go on Pinterest
I like these recipes a lot and the setup of the app is great. I love that you don’t have to scroll back and forth between the ingredients and the directions. I also like that I can create cookbooks, which I do for weekly meal planning.
I just want recipes, not have to earn coins and strategize how to use them to “unlock” other recipes.
What’s the point of purchasing the app if not all recipes are there? There are way more FREE recipes on the website.
I absolutely love this app. There are endless recipes that are not only delicious and unique but incredibly budget friendly! I love the feature that allows you to change your serving size and adjusts the recipe accordingly. I love the cookbook tool, the cook alongs are amazing, I love the way the recipes are arranged. Seriously worth what you pay for! Thank you!!
