USDA Food Stamp Nutrition Connection Recipe Finder. Includes nutrition facts, cost per serving/recipe, and lets you add recipes to a printable shopping list. Here is an example of a recipe: Master Baking Mix from an Oregon Extension Service which is .21 cents per serving. Depending on where you live, some of the estimated prices per serving may be a little inflated. I think I could purchase these items at my Save-A-Lot grocery store for less than .21 cents per serving.
