Baking Holiday Cookies on a Budget

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on December 12, 2012

It’s in the mess that memories are made. Right? At least that’s how it seems to be work at our house. Be it in the kitchen or outside in a pile of leaves or with bubbles in the bathtub. It’s the fun and messy activities that make the best memories. My oldest elf Ryan helping […]

Angie’s Cake Mix Cookies

by Angie on December 6, 2012

I have no time to bake, yet cookies are needed at pre-school, scouts, the party at dance class, and oh yeah, I did sign up for that cookie exchange. Ok, no time to panic. Let’s put away the Martha Stuart aspirations and go with something easy, fast and of course, tasty. When I have no time to bake […]

Waffle Iron Chocolate Chip Cookies

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on December 3, 2012

{REPIN IT} Sometimes all a girl wants is just a chocolate chip cookie. Or two. Or four. (At least that’s how I feel about cookies.) And that’s one of the reasons I like to keep dough in my freezer at all times. For “one of those days.” Before we go on… Patiently waiting. (Such is […]

Homemade Break ‘n Bake Cookies

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on October 19, 2012

Two cookie dough posts in one week. You’d think I was pregnant and craving cookies or something. (Oh wait.) Actually, I really should have included this in Monday’s How to Freeze Cookie Dough article, but we’ll let this one stand on its own. I love gifting people with homemade cookie dough. And this is a […]

How to Freeze Cookie Dough

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on October 15, 2012

I’ve shared a few of my tips for how to freeze cookie dough in the past, and I wanted to revisit it again as we move into the holiday baking season. I’m planning on doing a couple of “dough makes” in November, as one way to stay ahead of myself once the crazy holidays hit. […]

Denise’s Spiderweb Cupcakes

by Denise on October 11, 2012

My quadruplets’ birthday is this week and somehow they always end up with a Halloween themed birthday party since they were born in October. I’ve made a ton of Halloween themed treats over the years, but so far these spiderweb cupcakes have been their favorite. I made three dozen of these to take to their […]

Best Pumpkin Recipes

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on October 5, 2012

Loving these brisk Fall mornings (yes, we’ve had a few in San Antonio, and I’ve enjoyed a few this week in Atlanta too!). And loving that it’s “bake with pumpkin” season again. (Not that you can’t bake with it all year!) I wanted to pull together some of our favorite pumpkin recipes, so without further […]

Angie’s Beer Bread

by Angie on October 4, 2012

Sometimes a beer finds its way into my house. It’s pretty rare because my husband will only drink one or two a month maximum, and I never developed a taste for it. When he does get a six pack, the leftovers just lurk in the refrigerator forever. Well, until recently! It turns out, that beer […]

Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal {with Gluten Free variation!}

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on October 1, 2012

So we’ve had a handful of “brisk” mornings here in San Antonio. And by “brisk,” I mean the temp has dropped below 70. Which must mean fall is here because I’ve seen a number of people out wearing sweatshirts. Or my blood is already starting to thin out some, because it’s really not that cool? […]
