Student Recipes

So you have spent the past 18 years or so waiting on them hand and foot, and vocalising from time to time your feelings about your kids perceived in ability to put a meal together.

Suddenly it’s all too late and they are off to start the next chapter of their young lives, without you and without the ability to feed themselves.

So what to do?

Can I be bold to suggest a couple of things?

  1. Introduce them to this website
  2. Teach them the basic Recipes
  3. Like Fayes Frugal Foods on Facebook so that they will never be short of ideas
  4. Ensure you get a twitter and an instagram account so you can at least keep up to date with their antics!

Welcome to the New Frugal Foods Website - We have had a make over, and have added a few things along the way. Why not also take a look at our Amazon shop with our favourite Cookery Books? Our very popular Blog will continue to give you great ideas for frugal family meals and using up your left overs but we are also working on some additional items to look out for too.
