Top Customer Reviews
The $5 Dinner Mom One-Dish Dinners Cookbook offers a good variety of recipes that are $5 or less to prepare. There is a section of vegetarian recipes for cooks interested in preparing non-meat based meals. The recipes seem easy to prepare and Erin Chase's writing is clear and concise.
Some of the recipes you will find in this cookbook include:
Baked Honey-Mustard Chicken
Pot Roast with Dilled Carrots and Potatoes
Grilled Chicken Caesar Flatbread
Sesame Shrimp and Pepper Stir-Fry
Fiesta Beans and Rice (Vegetarian recipe)
Rounding out the cookbook are basic recipes used to prepare the one-dish recipes. Chase has included recipes such homemade beef broth or homemade salsa in the basic recipes section of the cookbook.
If you are trying to shoot for a $5 dinner, I'm going to make the assumption you are just trying to eat frugally. This cookbook will help you do that. I'd say if you are careful and follow the recipes, the average dinner recipe will cost between $6 and 8. There are tips in the front of the book on how to save money.
Trying out the recipes in this book, I realized you better like tomatoes. Every other recipe contains either diced tomatoes (canned) or spaghetti sauce. They are not overly healthy, but they aren't unhealthy either. I think if you allowed yourself a little extra budget-wise for each dinner you could make it a lot healthier. My family has liked the food so far, though.
if you're skeptical, check out her website. It has a few $5 recipes and a slew of other recipes as well.
