What Are You Doing Here?
A couple years ago, I decided it was time to learn how to cook. I figured that with all the resources I had available, I could teach myself the cooking basics.
Being the frugal (cheap) person that I am, I wanted to make sure that my culinary endeavors were not going to leave me broke. So every time I went searching for a new recipe, I made sure to do my due diligence to substitute out the expensive ingredients for the more common, cheaper, alternatives. In an attempt to capture my frugal culinary journeys, Poormet was born!
The goal is not to find the cheapest food possible, nor is it to cook the most extravagant meals… but to find a nice balance between economical and savory.
The recipes on this site will tend to lean towards the healthy side of things. I’m tired of listening to people complain about how expensive it is to eat properly… but that doesn’t mean you won’t find some Chocolate Death Balls or Stuffed French Toast here and there.

Q & A
Aren’t there enough cheap eating websites?
Probably… but one more doesn’t hurt. I would imagine in this day and age you’d be hard-pressed to come up with an idea/website/business that isn’t already out there. So, instead of being unique, I’ll just provide quality content that captures who I am and what I’m about.
What do you use to write this?
Everything you see here is built on WordPress utilizing the amazing Genesis Framework by StudioPress. The theme is custom made by yours truly to satisfy all of my unique requirements. I’ve gained a significant amount of knowledge from this process, so if you have any questions shoot them my way!
Where do you get the recipes?
There’s not much of a reason to just copy/paste recipes from other websites (not to mention the copyright infringement aspect of doing that) , but since I am a culinary noob I will most definitely be utilizing other resources (magazines, cookbooks, blogs) as launching pads for my recipes. I will make sure to site my resources to the best of my abilities.
