A little help for calculating recipe prices

You know how I like to include the cost of my recipes? Well, thanks to the brilliant folks over at Wise Bread, I’d like to introduce you to a site that can help you do that.

Visit the Food Stamp Nutrition Connection and type in an ingredient. Let’s say you typed “chicken” in the ingredient search.

56 results pop up, listing various recipes that use chicken.

Click on a recipe that sounds good, and you can see the estimated cost and cost per serving.

These figures won’t necessarily match your own (you might find a great sale, or not) but they can provide a general guideline for each recipe.

A bonus: You’ll see the recipe’s nutritional info! How cool is that?

  1. Hi Kacie

    Great info link on Wise Bread! Thanks..and keep up the great blogging.


  2. Very cool! I will have to try the Ground Beef Stew recipe I saw… $.90 per serving! :) I really need to pay more attention to how much each meal I prepare is… it will come in handy once I have a list of menus and their prices. :)

    Thanks for all the research you’ve done!

Hey! I'm Kacie, wife to Shane and mother to Jonathan (7), Vivienne (5) and Amelia (2) . I write about my family's finance: how we save money, improve our spending, and plan for the future.

I hope I can inspire and encourage you to improve your situation. See disclosure.

I'm adopting a much slower-paced posting schedule, and treating this as a hobby blog now.

Keep in Touch!
