Kitchen $centse at dinnerwithjoy.com is a different type of cooking blog. Owning a personal chef service taught Joy Wielland, several things. She saved money on her personal food needs, when she applied the techniques she used professionally to enable her to quote a price, insure top quality ingredients and still meet her bottom line. People, especially working parents want to relax at day’s end, and enjoy a good meal, with no fuss. Well pre-planned menus and enlightened shopping can eliminate overstocking, duplications, and impulse buying, the three major causes of inflated food spending.
When people generally began to express concern over rising food prices, she created her blog Dinner with Joy’s Kitchen $centse at dinnerwithjoy.com which focuses on economizing on food expenses through organized menu planning and informed food shopping rather than using cheaper ingredients and "fillers." To this end, her blog is unique in that each of her posts contains text explaining her recommendations.
Friends with whom Joy shared her methods of saving experienced such positive results that she has outlined the process in detailed steps, including incentives and success tips, in an ebook "Diet for the Food Dollar, "now available on her blog. The book also contains a valuable kitchen tool, a collection of charts covering; weights, measurements, conversions, pan sizes, types of meat including seafood, uses of cuts, cooking times, grains, oils, herbs, spices, cheeses, ingredient substitutions and calorie values. Diet for the Food Dollar isn’t a "quick fix" but rather a one-size-fits-all guide on How to Control Food Expenses. A series of short "How To…" PDFs on related subjects is planned for the near future.
Joy has written a menu cookbook Dinners With Joy, outlining how a personal chef service provisions clients with multiple different meals in one day. The book divides three months of entrée recipes into weeks, each with cooking tips, suggested sides, dessert recipe and detailed shopping list including a pantry check. It also contains information on shopping for meats, poultry, and seafood, plus a guide to making and using sauces. It is available both on Amazon and her blog. Three other cook books are in various stages of completion, including a sequel to the original.
She is a contributor to Ezine Articles.com and The Bwyd, on-line food magazine (http// the bwyd.com) Chill Magazine and Frederator Books. She regularly guests on heartzipperblogspot.com, cooksnaps.com, has guested on good-cooking.co.uk and chefneeds.com among others.
