Welcome to WearyChef! We are excited to share our site and recipes with you. But first, let’s give you a little background on what WearyChef is all about.

Our Recipes

Our philosophy at Weary Chef is to create recipes that are Affordable, Convenient and Tasty!  We work hard to ensure all our recipes and blog posts follow this simple philosphy.

Cooking food that tastes good and is easy to make does not need to break the bank or feel like a “luxury.”  I use canned and frozen items and less expensive meats in many of my recipes.  Making sure recipes are Affordable is always important.  My goal is for all recipes to be under $5 per person.

We are all busy (and often weary), and finding the time to cook dinner can be a luxury.  That is why I focus on creating Convenient recipes.  I try to keep my recipes under 10 ingredients and less than 20 minutes of active time.  I also use some store-bought or premade ingredients because even chefs need to hit the easy button every once in a while.  And believe me, many of the best restaurants do not make everything from scratch.  And lastly I like to highlight any substitutions or modifications you can make to the recipe.

Recipes need to be Tasty. I believe food should always be delicious, and there is nothing better than serving a great-tasting meal and seeing the smiles on the faces of those who enjoy it. We work hard to make sure the recipes taste great, even if they are for a quick, easy, and inexpensive meal that is thrown together at the last minute.
