I came across a very nice mix of free and cheap cookbooks this morning. You’ll find some healthy fare, some frugal stuff and some tasty treats. I can’t wait to get into the kitchen and try some of these recipes. The books are on my kindle, but before I get to do a lot more reading (and some baking), I better get back to working on today’s HBHW newsletter. I’ll be back tomorrow morning with more .

30 Vegetarian Slow Cooker Recipes – Fabulous Easy Vegetarian Slow cooker Recipes (Vegetarian Cookbook and Vegetarian Recipes Collection)
Let’s start today off with some yummy crockpot recipes. They are quick and easy and since these are all vegetarian recipes, they are also budget and figure friendly. What more can you ask for?
I have a hard time getting my husband to eat all the fruits and vegetables his body needs. A great way to get that nutritional boost is to make your own juices. We don’t juice every day, but if I notice that he hasn’t had a whole lot of fruits and veggies for a few days, I make us up a batch of juice. This also works great when you end up with too much fruit and veggies and can’t eat them all before they go bad.
Going Gluten Free – Meal Plans and Recipes
Here’s another great introductory guide to eating gluten-free. If you’re considering this way of living and eating, this is a great way to start learning about living gluten-free.
The Book of Herbs
I love cooking with fresh herbs and they are one of the few things I can grow and keep alive. I’m always learning more and love reading about growing and using herbs. No surprise that this went on my kindle right away this morning.
These look like the perfect treats for a hot summer day. I know my daughter will love them.
Eating healthy doesn’t have to be expensive. This book is the perfect example. The author – Susan Morishita – proves this by eating healthy on a dollar a day. It’s an interesting read and a great way to motivate yourself to eat better on a tight budget.
Crockpots are perfect for cooking comfort food. Here you’ll find 150 new recipes to try. Perfect for busy weeknight and tasty enough for a special Sunday meal.
Poke cakes are so much fun to make and they take a plain cake from ordinary to extra ordinary. In this little recipe book you’ll find 35 yummy recipes that are easy enough to make during the week, but tasty and “fancy” enough for potlucks and company.
Baked squares are a perfect treat for after school, lunch boxes or as a summer snack. The cookie bars in this little cookbook promise to be tasty treats anytime.
My favorite thing about bread pudding is that you can make it from leftover stale bread. It’s a frugal treat that makes a great dessert or even a special breakfast treat for the kids.
As an avid HBHW reader, you probably already know most of what’s in this book. I still recommend it though. It’s a quick read and well worth the $2.99 if you pick up even just one or two extra tips or use it as motivation to use all your frugal living skills.
Don’t have a kindle? Not a problem. You can read the books on your computer and other devices. If you decide to buy one, I recommend this basic model. I’ve had one for quite some time and can highly recommend it.
I will do my best to share more free and cheap kindle books with you regularly as time permits. Subscribe to the blog or like the HBHW Facebook page to get updates each time I add more free reads.
