I'm Lauren, a crazy, mouthy, busy, tired boy mom, wife and woman. I started cooking when I was about 14. For 20 years I've been making recipes by just adding a pinch of this and that until it's just right. Now I'm sharing all my recipes, secrets, tips and favorite things here on Fixed on Fresh. I cook easy, budget-friendly recipes made with fresh ingredients.
Whether you're low carb, Paleo, Whole30, a meal-prepper, have a sweet tooth, or just want to get back to basics, you'll find something here for you.
Budget Friendly, Balanced Recipes
If you're anything like me, you're tired, sometimes crippled by all the things you want to get done versus all the things you actually can get done without sacrificing your sleep...which is limited as it is. So here's what you need from a recipe:
- It tastes awesome
- You like a nice balance of healthy meals, classic family meals and a sprinkling of indulgent desserts
- Most recipes have make-ahead directions (because when you get home at dinner time, it's nice to just have to heat something up and serve)
- Meal prep is the only way you get a decent lunch in
- You want to know how much a recipe is going to cost you from the start
