Cumin Pork Roast with Black Beans

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on June 23, 2014

I have a kid who doesn’t like beans. He’ll eat a few bites, but with hesitation! The other three kiddos have no issues with beans…in fact, last night the baby (toddler, really!) had beans and bean juice all over him. It was on his chin, his chest, his arms, his legs. He had a bib […]

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on June 2, 2014

What’s with the crazy half-fluffed photo, Erin? I know that’s what your thinking. I haven’t lost my mind. Well…since this cooking method is probably a new concept for many of you, I decided to just fluff half of the dish before snapping the photo so that you can see what it will look like when […]

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on March 10, 2014

Our church is experiencing a flurry of new babies and I’m on the team that delivers meals to new mamas! I adore getting to see the tiny humans when I drop off the meal and I LOVE getting to serve new moms in this way. A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of taking […]

Slow Cooker Honey Ham and Bean Soup

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on January 3, 2014

Seriously, dinner doesn’t get any easier than this. This is what I call a “Chop, Dump and Run” kind of dinner. (And if you added carrots, it would be a one dish slow cooker dinner…my absolute favorite kind.) This soup is sweet from the honey, with a touch of smoke, and a slight bite from […]

Cajun Turkey & Andouille 15 Bean Soup

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

Y’all know that I’m not a huge fan of turkey…but I’m also not a fan of tossing anything out, so when my mom sent us home with just about a turkey’s worth of leftovers, I thought I might be in trouble. What am I going to do with all of this? First off…I divided it […]

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 […]
