Hi, I’m Kim Tilley, editor of Frugal Foodie Moms and FrugalMoms²!
I’m a veteran and mom of five boys, ranging in age from 2 to 25. I was a stay at home mom for 17 years and a working mom for the past 8 years. It’s all work! But also a lot of fun. Some of my happiest moments with my family take place in the kitchen and around the dinner table. That’s when we often do our deepest connecting- over really good food. And do we ever love good food!
My older kids, who are now grown, have been begging me for years to share my recipes. So have my friends. It’s not that I’ve been keeping them hidden away, it’s just that most of them are in my head and not on paper. Sometimes I’ll have a basic recipe that I look at, and then completely alter it in my head! Since I’m also a techie and love web design, I thought it was time to learn food photography and get them up online to share with everyone.
It’s also a great medium for showing others how to cook great meals at home that don’t break your budget. The cost of food has gotten crazy in the past few years, and we need all the strategies we can muster to keep costs down while also eating better. Along with recipes, you’ll find lots of “how tos” here, along with cookbook reviews, gadget reviews, and a lot more. If there’s something specific you are looking for or need help with, please contact me! I’m more than happy to help or point you in the right direction.
Yours in frugal foodie love,
