Back in November I went on a fun Blog Event to meet the Smuckers Family in Ohio. While there I met some amazing bloggers. Some have even created their own cookbooks! One of the fabulous ladies I met is Erin Chase.
Erin is the founder of www.5dollardinners.com The skyrocketing internet website that’s now the go-to source for families who want to eat well and stay within a budget. Erin became a supermarket savvy mom, challenged herself to create dinners for her family of four that cost no more than $5 and is here to share her fool-proof method with you in her first cookbook that contains over 200 recipes that cost $5 or less to make.
First, Erin will show you how to size up the best supermarket deals, clip coupons that will really save you money and create a weekly dinner menu plan. Then, in each recipe she shows you just how much she paid for each item and challenges you to do the same.
Here are a few of her favorites:
– North Carolina Pulled Pork Sandwiches – $4.90
– Curried Pumpkin Soup – $4.41
– Apple Dijon Pork Roast – $4.30
– Orange Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry – $4.94
– Creamy Lemon Dill Catfish – $4.95
– Bacon-Wrapped Apple Chicken – $4.96
– Country Ribs with Oven Fries – $4.77
I jsut received a copy of Erin’s cookbook and can not wait to try out her recipies, and of course learn to save money and create more cost effective meals for my family.
