Only $5 meal if you have fully stocked pantry
on February 20, 2014
I think the title is a bit misleading due to the way she does her pricing. For example she may put that 4 tablespoons of sugar will cost you 5 cents, that's probably accurate if you have sugar but you can't go into a store and only buy 4 tablespoons of sugar obviously. Same is done with all seasonings, honey, eggs etc. She breaks it down like everyone has everything in there pantry and you wont have to buy anything just for any of the recipes. Also some stores are more expensive, different parts of the country and so on. I wouldn't count on being able to make the recipes for five dollars unless you have a giant pantry with all types of pasta, all types of seasonings, honey, lemon juice, various types of vinegar and that you will use the whole container for other stuff with no waste.
The recipes have a good variety to them. I am sure most people could find something that they would enjoy in the book.
