The $5 Dinner Mom One-Dish Dinners Cookbook Review & Giveaway

Erin Chase, The $5 Dinner Mom, is back again with her third cookbook, The $5 Dinner MOM One-Dish Dinners Cookbook (Griffin; September 2012; Paperback; $17.99; ISBN 0-31261628-7). This cookbook is filled with more than 150 one-dish recipes that don't cost an arm and a leg, are easy to prepare and even easier to clean up after.

Erin has included a few $5-and-under desserts like Mango Raspberry Crumble and Pear, Apple and Caramel Crisp to round out a meal on nights when the budget allows.

Here are just a few mouthwatering examples straight from Erin's kitchen:

- Bowtie Pasta with Bacon, Corn and Parmesan
- Santa Fe Chicken and Rice Casserole
- Skillet Taco Pie
- Sausage and Black Bean Soup
- Spicy Quinoa with Corn, Beans and Lime

With her new book, Erin Chase shows America that it's not only possible to eat right, eat well and stay on a budget. She also shows us how easy it can be to cook, clean up fast, and spend more time with the family.

Feed your family for $5 or less. Don't we all want to save and spend less? There are times when I can't think of what to make for dinner and take-out or eating out can be quite costly. So I was given the opportunity to review this wonderful cookbook. The prices listed beside each ingredient are approximate. The first recipe I tried making for the family was the Ham & Broccoli Breakfast "Brinner". It was easy to make and very tasty. My son loves it! You don't have to be a great chef to make all these recipes. The book also contains several pages of full-colored photos that gets me motivated to try them.

WHERE TO BUY: The book is now available on bookshelves nationwide! Check your local bookstores or purchase online at Amazon.com.
