Recessipe (recession recipe)

The economic recession of 2008-2009 caused many people to choose simpler, less expensive meals. The word “recessipe” (recession recipe) was popularized in February and March 2009.

A blog on February 5, 2009 and another blog on February 15, 2009, both used the title “Recessipes.” On February 6, 2009, CNN Living did a segment titled “Recess-ipes: 10 meals for $10 each.” The Food Network used the word “recessipes” on March 18, 2009.

Restaurants (such as the hot dog restaurant Gray’s Papaya in New York City) have long offered a dining-out equivalent to the “recessipe” in the “recession special.”

Recess-ipes: 10 meals for $10 each

I thought it would be fun to create a place to upload different recipes to share with each other (and it is even better when they fit into our recession budget)! Check back to see different ones. Send me thoughts and fun ideas to share!
