About Me


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.  

I originally started my blog in January of 2011 when I was pregnant with my third child.  I was really looking for a place to post my recipe ideas.  A few weeks later I lost that pregnancy, and my blog evolved into something more...
It became my place to not only continue sharing my recipes, but also my place to muddle through my feelings and fears concerning my miscarriages, our diagnosis of unexplained secondary infertility, our trials and joys of trying to conceive once again, and now the joy of having our sweet baby girl with us.
Since becoming a stay-at-home mother after our daughter was born, I have been learning how to become more budget conscious and fabulously frugal.  Living on a single income isn't easy, but it has been well worth it.


Welcome and thank you for joining in me in my continuing evolution as a mother & a blogger...
