The book has some good tips that may be new to some people, especially those who are new to preparing and serving Thanksgiving dinner. I can see this book being a good choice for someone who is hosting for the first time. It would be a good 'how-to' primer with tips on when to serve dessert and the proper layout of a buffet table. Money saving tips seem to have taken a backseat to these tips however.
I liked the section on how to fix 'Boo Boos' like if your stuffing is too dry, or if you burn the dinner rolls, but they almost seemed out of place in the book.
Basic recipes and tips are good, and this again goes towards who this book would most benefit: new cooks and/or hosts of holiday dinners. Others may find the book less useful.
The recipes related to turkey leftovers are a nice addition, but nothing really new.
The format of the book doesn't flow well, so things like what to do with leftovers are followed by dessert, dip and main dish recipes in a seemingly random order. I found that disappointing, as I had to keep referring back to the Table of Contents.
This book could have benefited from a clear flow which included sections which were solely 'tips' and 'recipes'. There are helpful tips and basic recipes in this book, but the title: 'Thanksgiving On A Dime', is slightly misleading as I don't really see a lot of money-saving tips, which was what I expected from this book. Instead I found a mediocre book with lots of website promotion.
A truely unique how to do Thanksgiving at your house.

I have made some recipies from the book and they were quite good. It also has good tips and saving ideas.Published 22 days ago by Amazon Customer
Disappointed with this one. Most of the "recipes" were junk food concoctions that would cost so much to make one would do better to go to a restaurant for the meal. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Just Fascinating
