Format: Paperback
This book gives contains about 200 recipes that will feed 4, usually about $5 for the meal. There are hints for grocery shopping and meal planning and step by step directions for making food ahead.

Each recipe has frugal facts, some are: the kids love this and others have hints on how to slice peaches and freeze them when they are on sale for 3 pounds for $1.50 or less. Each recipe has the cost of every ingredient. To achieve the low price, dried beans are used, with a note that canned beans will be more expensive. Sales, using coupons and stocking up are the key to keeping the price low.
Included is a staples list, some of which you make yourself - homemade hamburger buns, pizza sauce, salsa. Then there is the list of what you should have in your freezer, refrigerator, pantry, and supply inventory such as foil and freezer containers. A detailed index is included, as well as some online resources.

Breakfast recipes include; cereals, egg dishes, with several that can be fixed the night before, pancakes, waffles, tacos and sandwiches. There are instructions for freezing, so they can be grabbed `on the go'. Lunches are for at home and to carry out: sandwiches, wraps, quesadillas, soups, pasta and garden salads, side salads and side dishes, there are also some snacks and smoothies.

Many have variations on eggs, tuna fish and chicken and might seem repetitive, but they do give variety and make use of inexpensive ingredients. There are some good ideas in here to make meals on a budget.

I've bookmarked many a recipe in The $5 Dinner Mom Breakfast and Lunch Cookbook as there are so MANY yummy sounding recipes waiting for me to try. And every recipe is inexpensive as author Erin Chase keeps her promise of keeping everything under $5 per meal. You read it: per meal. Breakfasts and lunches typically run less than this amount. Here are some examples:

BREAKFAST
Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal served with yogurt, milk or cream plus a hard boiled egg: $1.99
Chocolate Chip Raspberry Pancakes, syrup and fresh fruit: $3.20
Ham and Cheese Omelet with Pumpkin Smoothies: $4.33

LUNCH
Baked Parmesan Chicken Fingers, Marinara Sauce, Spinach "Green" Smoothies: $4.99
Swiss BLT Melts with fresh fruit: $3.52
Cincinnati-Style Chili, spaghetti and fresh fruit: $3.82

There is a nice selection of salads, side dishes, smoothies and snack recipes rounding out this cookbook.

Overall, the prices seem within range and this book will help guide you to a trimmer food budget thanks to Chases' excellent recipes, grocery tips and commonsense.

Highly recommend.

My family gets stuck in the cold cereal and sandwich rut fairly easily. This cookbook presents some great alternatives. And everything I have tried has been delicious. All of the recipes feature fresh-made ingredients - no cream of anything soup or bottled dressings. Plus, this book features not only recipes, but helpful money and time-saving tips.

I love this book. I'm always looking for new ideas for breakfast and lunch, and this book is full of them. I have liked most of them that I have tried. At times she uses a bit more sugar or oil than I would use, but I usually just modify the recipe to my liking. I love that it gives me so many ideas. I love her overnight granola. Best granola ever and super easy - no stirring just bake 10 minutes and leave it in the oven overnight. Turns out nice and crisp in the morning. I also like a lot of the bars that she makes, and that she started me making and freezing some of those items to have a quick breakfast ready to go.

Found that lots of these recipes were not really quick to prepare. Lots of steps. Costs of ingredients are printed in each recipe but many of them are not realistic. Unless you spend a lot of time clipping and using coupons and love to be in your kitchen A LOT, this book is not for you.

Erin Chase writes great cookbooks. I wish I had had her books when my children were little. I am using a lot of her recipes.
