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.”

    Requires sign up for an app I paid for.
  • No-brainer, my favorite recipes

    I was in college when I discovered Beth and her recipes on Budget bytes and they helped me eat healthy on a budget. Even though I’m not in college now why would I go anywhere else when I can eat incredibly flavorful food for what Beth says I should spend. She is so creative and I am so excited for her success! Thanks Beth!!!
  • Why?

    By Liznbt
    I don’t understand why I paid for the app but now have to get credits to unlock recipes. I love the BB website and thought this would be an easier way to look at recipes as I’m making them, but apparently I’m limited in what I can see, so really I do still have to go through the website. Frustrating.
  • This app is ALMOST perfect

    By FitNina
    I love everything about this app! The only thing it’s missing is the nutrition facts for each recipe. 😔
  • Addicted

    By Woodswalker77
    This app is great! It would be nice to import ingredients into my grocery app. But really addicting
  • Really should tell people

    By Sleeper1962
    I will probably like this once I can actually see the recipes. I paid for the app, not really expecting the world, but this might not be worth $3. I bought it and saw a recipe I thought I might enjoy. Tapped it and I cannot view it because I have to buy it with credits. And, of course, the easiest way to get credits is to buy them. Sigh... not so much budget minded anymore... hmpf
  • Great app with a few tweaks needed

    By GateTowr
    I have always enjoyed budget bytes recipes online, and I am enjoying the interactivity of the app. Usually I would feel frustrated having certain recipes hated behind in-app currency, but in this case I actually enjoy it because it forces me to work through a few meals at a time without being paralyzed by a whole catalogue of choices. Two things that have been frustrating me are that I can’t seem to delete cookbooks once I’ve created them, which is hurting my desire to keep everything organized. Additionally, when viewing my account, once I go into settings there doesn’t seem to be a “back” button, so the only way to go back to the main account page again is to exit and reopen the app. Looking forward to updates in the future!
  • Recipe serving size

    By MrJaxn78
    On the website you can make serving size go up to 20 servings but on the app you can only go to 16. The only reason I paid $3 for the app is to get 20 serving recipes! Pretty lame
  • Hooray for an app!

    By Mommabug23
    I love budget bytes so much, it is almost always up in my browser so having an app is perfect! Thank you for the great recipes & practical tips. :)
  • Why charge more??

    By unhappybudgetbytesfan
    I downloaded this app right before my phone broke and I paid $3 for it. I just bought it again because I love the website so much and I may be crazy but it is not the same! Why are there coins and why do I need ten of them to view a recipe?? I am not very happy with the content on it, save your money and just go to the website.
