+Elizabeth R. Me too! Anything we can get at home is off limits when we dine out while traveling. Although I can say that my daughter has become a connoisseur of chicken fingers and fries from every locally owned restaurant we have ever visited, lol! ;) It is all that girl will eat!

Introduction
Hello all!  My name is Carrie and I am the former middle school/high school teacher turned blogger/recipe developer/stay-at-home mama behind Frugal Foodie Mama.   You will mainly find me posting my original & adapted (& usually budget friendly!) recipes here.  But I am also known to share my budgeting tips, my take on natural parenting, anecdotes about my life as a stay-at-home mother to a toddler and a teenager, product reviews & giveaways, and even the occasional crafty post.
