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.”
The app is good to use. I gave it three stars because it doesn’t have all the recipes on it like it does on the webpages. I personally wouldn’t recommend this app because of that.
Long time fan of your Beth’s blog and love having this on the go when I’m shopping. Great app!
This app inspires me to cook!
I got this app because I love the website but the app is pointless. The website and the app have nothing to do with each other. You can’t save recipes on the website and then access them on the app. Recipes that are on the website are not available on the app. The app does not have the grocery list feature. There are so many other free apps that do all of the above. Wish I would have saved my $2.99.
This app is pretty great. Well worth the small price tag for it. I haven’t made anything yet that I have yet to not like. I take off 1 star because the way the app stores your favorites recipes is bogus. When you go in to a list to look at them, they are always in a different order and you have to refresh the list and then more appear at the top part you’ve already scrolled through. Dumb design. Please fix this and I won’t have any complaints.
I can log into the website but when I go to the app that I paid $2.99 for, it says the credentials or not valid. Tried 10 times already. I validated my email too from the website.
Wow! This app is set up so beautifully, it’s very pleasing to browse and save recipes. I just made my first recipe last night and I was so impressed by the cook along recipe feature! Click start cooking and the app reads the directions step by step for you and even has integrated timers!!! So perfect. I was initially disappointed that the app and the website don’t talk to each other, so I needed to create another profile and all of my favorite recipes were not ported over to the app. Also, the website has a wonderful grocery list function that the app does not have. I was assuming the app would replace my need to go in the website but I will be using both. The website to plan my meals and the app to view the recipe and cook them. I hope the development team could consider adding these features eventually and it would be truly perfect. Either way I love budget bytes and I’m so glad I finally purchased the app! Highly recommend.
Just go to the website. The recipes are not stored on your phone. You have to “unlock” additional recipes. Your saved recipe cookbooks require a data connection to access them. This app is a ripoff. Just go to the website and look up recipes.
This app is super useful and helps out so much when planning meals for the week
Idk I’m bummed out with this app. I just discovered the website and I love it. The app has some great features, but it’s clunky and doesn’t have all the recipes that (can be found for free) on the website. Also there is an in app currency system where you have to buy certain recipes, not what I had in mind when I got the app to save money on food costs 🤷♀️
