re⋅cess⋅i⋅pes (noun): cost-saving recipes for cooking in a recession economy, most likely prepared by a recessionista.

ABC News reports:

IStock_000005011628XSmall"Times are tough, and many of us are rediscovering the benefits of a home-cooked meal. The folks at the Food Network discovered that recently more people are searching the network's Web site looking for recipes that are easy on the waistline, as well as the wallet. In response, the Food Network has created what it is calling "recessipes" -- meals that will leave both your stomach and bank accounts full."

I absolutely love this "recessipes" prepared by a Recessionista. I ran a post a little while ago on Recessionistas cooking at home. Who knew they were making cool "recessipes" ?


I get what the Food Network is going for with this new buzzword (and I love the clever ring to it) but I also think smart and economical food choices should be encouraged in general, not just in bad times.
