Welcome to The Shortcut Kitchen!  We are so happy to have you join us here.

Life is busy and someone almost always seems to be saying “I’m hungry”. Here at The Shortcut Kitchen, we create simple budget-friendly meals that come together quickly! Comforting meals around the kitchen table are a time for families to reconnect in today’s busy world and you don’t need to spend countless hours in the kitchen to make delicious food.

This website was started to help readers save money on groceries and beyond. Along with money-saving tips, we started sharing our family meals (CentsLessMeals.com) and found a passion for helping families get easy meals on the table.
