About Inflation Bites

Great recipes with fewer ingredients under $15.

With the cost of groceries climbing, most of us are finding it difficult to keep within our budgets and still serve great food. This problem is further complicated by supply chain issues and suddenly unavailable ingredients. A recent Consumer Price Index report found that the cost of groceries had risen almost 10% in the previous year alone.  Some items, like eggs, had risen over 30%. If your food costs are rising but your food budget is not, you need to find strategies for meal planning and recipes that keep one eye firmly fixed on costs.

 We hope that the information and recipes presented here will encourage readers to feel in control and to serve great food even as costs rise.
