$5 Dinner Mom Breakfast and Lunch Cookbook Review & Giveaway!


Trying to find healthy tasty meals inexpensively sometimes feels next to impossible. If you have been following my blog for awhile you will know I love reading $5 Dinner Mom blog by Erin Chase.

Erin is a mom of 3 boys. Erin lived and worked in the Dominican Republic where she met her husband and learned to shop responsibility, plan and execute 3 meals a day, 7 days a week for 12 teenage boys when she and her husband were houseparents. Now those are some skills for sure!

Review: I really enjoyed reading through this book. Erin share's lots of great tips for freezing, batch cooking and saving money throughout the book. Erin also shares some meal planning idea's and also different ways to batch cook while you are preparing dinner without a ton of extra work. Each recipe has the price for each ingredient and a total cost. These cost are from where Erin lives, in the Midwest, USA. I have found that most of the meals are more for myself but still not really expensive and when you watch for sales and use coupons the price comes down. There are so many recipes I am looking forward to trying, especially all the wraps and muffins that can be freezed for a great on the go meal.Southwest Sausage Muffins, Cheesy Sausage Muffins, Sausage, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Taco, then all the great salads including Minestrone Pasta Salad,Taco Salad and Broccoli-Raisin Salad. I will be able to keep busy this spring and summer for sure.

The first recipe I tried was the Banana Blueberry Loaf Bread and it turned out very yummy. I don't think I needed to mix it as much as I did but it still was good. Here is what it looked like when Abby and I were finished baking them.
