Thanks to the magic of the Internet, it's never been easier to find cheap recipes with on-sale ingredients.

I’ve recently been watching a lot of MasterChef, and you could say I’ve got the cooking bug as a result. Which is why I was pleasantly surprised to read about the new Recipe.com last week: The relaunched site now has a focus on saving money.

Their twist? Ingredients on sale at your local food stores are highlighted, making it easy to find something cheap to cook. They even showcase simple recipes with many on-sale items on their home page. With a quick registration, I had everything configured for my zip code and the grocery stores I shop at.

However, after digging around the site, I found many on-sale ingredients to be ones already in my kitchen (like salt). Other shopping recommendations just seemed completely obvious. (I don’t need a website to tell me chicken is cheaper at Publix than Whole Foods.)

But on the whole, it seems very easy to find cheap recipes with this site. Tonight, for instance, I may have roast chicken with corn bread dressing. The onion, grapes, white wine, and chicken are all on sale.
