About Us



Thank you so much for visiting 2frugalfoodies.com! We are Gardner and Mary Katherine, and are the “2” in 2frugalfoodies.com.  Our wonderful dog, Chance, is always at our feet in the kitchen, so it’s only appropriate that you meet him, too. He’s 6, loves sticks and anything made with butter, cream or cheese.

Cooking for us is a total hobby – a relaxing, fun thing to do at the end of a long workday and throughout the weekend. We’ve got a budget, and are ridiculously frugal, but we refuse to eat poorly because of it. We always try to make the best meal we can with the best ingredients that we can. Read more about our cooking philosophy here.

We hope you’ll come back to 2frugalfoodies everyday – just to check out what we’re doing, or to find something delicious to make for yourself!

After hearing Anthony Bourdain speak at an event in 2010, we decided to outline our goals for this blog.

We’d love to hear from you – Email us!
