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 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.”

    I love all of Beth’s outlets - I started reading her blog almost 10 years ago and also have her cookbook. I love the app, too! The functionality continues to improve as more recipes are added. I love all the recipes and the step by step instructions!

    There is a lot on the website that is not available through the app for example the meal prep section. Also, please update to make the iPad version able to flip into landscape mode.

    Been using her site for years. We love making new dishes at her suggestion. Her app makes looking up recipes and the whole general process much easier.
  • Great App but

    1.) Would really like to be able to listen to podcasts while pursuing recipes. Every thing me I open app, whatever I’m listening to stops. I can understand if that occurs with the cooking video but often times am cooking, looking at the app AND listening to the news on my phone. Please fix so that I may do both at the same time. 2.) would like to use app to grocery shop to meal plan for the week with 2-3 recipes at a time. Can you please add a grocery list to app?
  • Love IT!

    I just recently moved halfway across the country after graduating college and joining the military. When I first settled into my apartment, none of my personal affects had arrived. I had a skillet, some tongs, and a spatula. I used this app, with it’s handy instructions and tips, to feed myself on a budget. People wonder where there paycheck goes at the end of the month, and the answer is it’s all spent on food! With this app I was able to get a better handle on my dining expenses, while not sacrificing quality or quantity.
  • Meal prep budget!

    Absolutely love this app! I was constantly researching meal prep bloggers, recipes, and ideas. But, then started realizing that meal prepping started to get costly and it shouldn’t be. I meal prep to stay healthy, to avoid eating out, and to stay within my monthly budget. This app made it easy! It allows me to stay organized every month by allowing me to create “cookbooks”. So every month at the beginning of the month I create a new cookbook of recipes specific to that month. The app allows you to select the amount of servings you’d like so you can easily decrease or increase to the amount that you need. Budget Byters that use the app also leave reviews when they make a recipe, so you can see others feedback and ideas of what they used to replace ingredients. For example, I replace butter with ghee and normally always replace sugar with honey. Definitely recommend for something that’s serious about meal prepping and is on a budget.

    Plagued by ads from Facebook and others, I purchased the app. The recipes I found online are not available on the app. It’s so disappointing.
  • Some issues

    So the token system is lame, but I look at the web page A LOT and get whatever recipes that aren’t on this app from there, no big whoop. The real thing that makes me give this one star is there is effectively no ‘back’ button. The ‘x’ or the ‘<‘ symbols in the upper left must be there for decoration because they sure as heck don’t work. Wanna add a recipe to your cookbook? Well now the app lives in the cookbook cuz there’s no going back to the actual recipe. For a paid app this is unacceptable.2
  • Good idea, poor execution

    I like the recipes but hate the forced upgrades and junk like marketplace credits. Please make the app simpler and stop forcing unnecessary and unwanted functions on people who just want the access to delicious recipes! Edited to add: first you have to pay to download the app, then you have to pay more for all the recipes that you can view for free online. Don’t waste your time with this app, just use the website.
