Why We Do What We Do
So, it’s been about 2-and-a-half weeks since our February 5th launch and we’re thrilled to say things are going pretty darn well. We were STOKED this morning to see that the MSN Money blog, Smart Spending had good things to say about us, and have been loving all of your comments and feedback.
Of course we’re hoping that BrokeAss Gourmet will continue to thrive and grow, but we’re on a bigger mission than that.
Over the past year as the economy has headed south, we’ve seen many of our friends lose their jobs, get passed over for raises and bonuses and watch their stocks plummet. As a result, their lifestyles have changed and they find themselves cutting out luxuries like expensive meals and drinks out.
We’ve also noticed that being jobless and/or broke can take a toll on self esteem. Sure, it’s not your fault that the tech start-up you work for folded but that doesn’t mean you feel good about it—and it’s hard to work your mojo when you’re not feeling good. Well, BrokeAss Gourmet aims to offer a solution to both monetary and mojo-related woes:
cooking delicious, innovative meals at home + saving money by learning about inexpensive but quality ingredients + impressing your dining companion with your prowess in the kitchen = MOJO RETURNED
