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.
