I am looking for recipes online in Japanese but I am not sure about some of the terminology. In particular, I'd like to search for "cheap and easy recipes" - are 簡単【かんたん】 and 安い【やすい】appropriate words for this purpose?

Thank you :)

    「安い」「簡単」「レシピ」でググってもいいし、「節約」「簡単」「レシピ」でググってもいいと思います – Chocolate Mar 24 '17 at 0:57

    安上がり{やすあがり} would meet your intension. But '節約' is the tag most often seen in cookpad like Shoko says. – Wataru 'Watson' Subridge Mar 24 '17 at 2:27
