Description

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 all 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??" 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 bought this app because I wanted to support the woman who runs Budget Bytes, but it's a worse user experience than the site. A few reasons why: -The format is changed, so the ingredients list isn't separated into sections (like sauces versus the rest of the dish) which is a pain if you just want to use the sauce -The videos (and the loud voice that accompanies them) are easily to accidentally start, and since I'm already a dedicated user of the site, I'm used to following her great recipes already -Worst of all, not all recipes are included in the app! I get that the video process is probably laborious to some extent, but couldn't the basic recipe at least be ported over. Anyway, I wish I could recommend the app, since I won't shut up about the site to all my friends and family. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    This app makes my life so much easier! Was already a devoted fan of the website but having everything easily accessible on my phone is amazing. This will make grocery shopping and meal planning much easier. Very proud of Beth!!! Thank you!

    This app has great potential but doesn't have much for recipes currently. Hopefully more will be added soon and I can give it 5 stars.
  • Yes.

    This app is everything I love about the budget bytes website taken up a notch. I love that you can adjust the recipe for more servings and it adjusts the ratios in the recipe for you. I'm all about the step by step instructions with built in timers for each step. And I dig the ability to categorize the recipes you save however works best for you. The only drawback is that the full catalog of recipes from the website isn't yet available, but there's still plenty to choose from as more are loaded in.
  • Yay! New ap for my favorite recipe site!

    There are only a handful of her recipes on this paid app. Disappointing until more are added.
  • Love it!

    I'm very pleased to see that this exists now. I've been using the site at the recommendation of a friend, and I love everything about it. I will be more than getting my money's worth from this app! Anyone looking for a recipe app that not only had great dishes, but also allows you to plan your budget for the meal AND you're able to filter by vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, etc. This is the app for you!
  • Snazzy!

    Really good looking app! I'm a big fan of Budget Bytes. My one recommendation is to allow for EXCLUDED ingredients as well as included ingredients. Example: I'm a pescatarian, so I'd like to be able to exclude all meat, but still get vegetarian and fish friendly meals. Also yes, iPad support is necessary!! Good work on the app!
