I love trying new recipes and I don't like boring food. Even meat & 3 veg will be mixed up a bit.
I also don't really restrict things like butter or cream, etc.

Id say my style is fresh and modern - a mix of modern Australian, Mediterranean and Mexican - we do lots of seafood, fresh herbs and spices and veggies , salsas , salads, stir frys, BBQ etc - I'm not a fan of slow cookers or cooking stew type meals , roasts or heavy sauces or pastas (but will do soups in winter )
I like cooking a varied menu and trying different things and couldn't live without good quality olive oil, butter , fresh herbs, lemons and chilli!

I'd love to be more creative but am feeling very uninspired. We're in a temporary rental and the kitchen is rubbish. Half of my kitchen stuff is in storage too. So it's lots of basic family meals like spag bol, risottos, simple curries, roasts, slow cooker casseroles, Mexican beef & beans (for tacos or with rice), homemade pizza or burgers... Pretty boring but everyone will eat it and I pack veggies into everything.

How would you describe your cooking style?
Boring, a chore, rushed, not enjoyed.
Though I used to enjoy it any my style was pasta, pasta and more pasta! All different kinds and all different sauces
I'm not a stew or roast veg and meat person.

Fast and easy homemade food.
I've never loved cooking and with dd I just don't have time for anything beyond basic.
Dh is the polar opposite. His food is so varied and amazing but , given he's never home in time to cool, it's becoming a rarity.

I tend to like to stick to cooking staples but always like trying something new.
I like food that doesn't need 100000000 complicated instructions. I like flavour - but again without having to add 1000000000 ingredients.
I try to cook food from scratch with fresh ingredients where possible.
I like using what is in season when I can.
Oh and I am not worried about food being pretty. I am terrible and making it look pretty.

I get a huge kick out of creating delicious food on a budget. that's more of an exciting challenge than just rolling into a store and dropping huge coin on pricy ingredients.
you can save a bit by shopping around/knowing where to shop, saving money on generic ingredients by buying home brand and making your own stuff.
for instance, I'll always make my own stock when and where possible. it's cheaper than buying the Campbell's stuff and tastes WAY better. what goes into it? 1 or 2 onions (super cheap), couple of carrots (super cheap), a few sticks of celery (cheap), couple of garlic cloves, salt, peppercorns and bay leaves (3-4) and chicken bones. if we've had a roast chook for dinner the night before, i save the bones and chuck them into the stock. if not, I'll buy a tray of chicken necks from Coles ($4) and roast them off with olive oil, salt & pepper then chuck those in. pour over with water, boil then allow to simmer for 1-2 hours.
this can be used immediately or frozen.
makes the most basic risotto taste amazing.
if you're creative and happy to go that extra mile, you can definitely create delicious food on a budget.
