Salted Caramel Mocha Fudge

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on December 16, 2013

Yesterday we had a packed day…church and Sunday school, then home for lunch, then back out the door to drop off the baby with Nana, in time to get to the Woodlawn Theatre for the A Christmas Story, Musical. (Fabulous show, if you are in San Antonio!) While we were shuffling through the kitchen, I […]

One of my Kitchen Shortcuts when it  comes to baking cookies is to use Silpat Baking Mats.  They make such a BIG difference in the way the cookies bake and melt to perfection when you use these mats vs just a regular baking sheet.  Plus, you don’t have to grease the mats and you can […]

Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 15, 2013

This baked oatmeal caused a bit of a stir in my kitchen. I set it out on the counter to cool just about the same time that I had dinner getting on the table. My oldest bounced through getting the cups and silverware onto the table and got so excited that I made brownies for […]

Chili with Caramelized Onion Cornbread

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on October 28, 2013

I heart caramelized onions. I adore the flavor and I especially love the way they make the house smell when they are caramelizing. Its a tossup between caramelizing onions and roasting garlic. Jury is still out on that one. So I’m teaming up with Formula 409 and their ‘America’s Love Affair with Grease’ campaign…helping home chefs […]

Pumpkin Chai Snickerdoodle Cookies

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on October 2, 2013

I <3 homemade cookies. And I wish I made them more. I really wish I made these more…all my favorite flavors of fall…in cookie form. While it’s still humid and up in the 90s some days, we have had a few “tastes of fall” and cool, crisp mornings. I often make pumpkin muffins or pumpkin […]

Angie’s Blackberry Quick Bread

by Angie on September 5, 2013

It’s the time of year when jams and jellies are in abundance at farmers markets and roadside stands. Or you can make you own jam like Erin does! She used blueberries & strawberries in her recipe, but it would work the same with blackberries!  When you stock up on jams, go ahead and grab some […]

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 26, 2013

Hey, hey back to school-ers!!! It is that time of year when the frenzy gets frenzier (more frenzied?) and the impossible task of getting dinner on the table is, well, impossible. In an attempt to stay out of the drive through lane in the early evening, and to keep my children fed for lunch (my […]

Pecan Streusel Stuffed Egg Nog French Toast Bake

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on December 17, 2012

{Repin It} Christmas Morning Casseroles. So many options, so many choices. Tradition vs. something new. (I just added a few casserole ideas to my “Holiday Food” board on Pinterest.) Here’s one for this year. Or next, if you’ve already got this year’s figured out. (If you’re into trying new ones!) It’s a basic stuffed french […]
