10. Burrito Cups

9. Caramelized Onion Grilled Cheese

8. Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal (with GF version)

7. Chicken and Spinach Enchiladas

6. BBQ Chicken Topped Potatoes

And before we conclude this year-end wrap-up, I thought I’d share the most popular recipes from $5 Dinners on Pinterest.

And now, we move forward with anticipation to 2013…we press on in the fight against rising food prices, working hard to keeping our grocery bills in check, while still making delicious, healthy (and inexpensive!) meals for our families!

Happy New Year Y’all!

The Chicken and Spinach Enchilada recipe will not come up for me. Is it a bad link? Or maybe it is just me.

My family and I love your recipes especially one that you had up several weeks ago. We all loved your easy cheese burger pie ( it really did taste like a cheese burger) but now I can’t find it and we would like to have it again. Where would I be able to locate the recipe?

The carmelized onion grilled cheese sounds delicious. I can’t wait to try a few of these, it would be amazing to serve good dinners for just $5. What a savings!

I can’t get the burrito cups recipe to come up. It looks like it is loading and then it turns to a blank page. They look really good.
