Most days of the week, Sauce the Food Blog – buddy to all reluctant, time-strapped cooks on a budget – can be found at http://saucethefoodblog.blogspot.in/
You can follow my entire indie-kitchen journey on it, from pretty rubbish to fairly competent, plus lots and lots of easy, inexpensive and tested recipes. And stories, for I can never resist food-stories. So pick a favourite, and jump in. Dinner’s on Sauce! :-)
