Sloppy Joe Bowls

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on June 9, 2014

This recipe is part of the latest 21 Gluten Free Meals from Costco Plan. I had the most fun making these Sloppy Joes…probably the most fun time ever making Sloppy Joes. Reason being…I had help from the oldest sous chef in the house. Ryan is almost 9 and I decided to use this meal as […]

Homemade Sloppy Joe Mix

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on June 9, 2014

We love Sloppy Joes (and Janes) at our house. We love them slider style (which is actually easier for the kids!), cheesesteak style, meatless style, as well as the with the store bought can and the DIY sauce. Regardless of how they are made, we love them. I find in the summer months that they […]

Caramelized Onion & Barbecue Meatloaf

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on June 6, 2014

Sometimes I wish I blogged only about burgers. Just burgers, that is all. Because I adore burgers…grilled at home, from a restaurant, even fast food (but Whataburger only!) burgers. Here’s one of my all time favorite burger. I think you can see why. Anytime there is burger on the menu that has caramelized onions, I’m […]

Shepherd’s Pie Recipe with Freezer Instructions

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on May 29, 2014

This recipe is part of the latest 21 Gluten Free Meals from Costco Plan. Shepherd’s Pie is always a favorite around here…with a house full of boys, a ‘meat and potatoes’ meal will always be a hit! Because Shepherd’s Pie is a ‘time and dishes intensive recipe’ with making the mashed potatoes and browning the […]

Salsa Verde Beef Street Tacos with Cilantro Slaw

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on April 14, 2014

Well, I’m officially on a salsa verde shredded meat kick. Last week, it was pork tacos with salsa verde and some chopped jalapenos. This week, it’s this shredded beef with an simple cilantro slaw on top. Both meats were cooked in the slow cooker. (Because I NEED my slow cooker these days…here’s why. After this […]

Chili Pasta Bake

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 […]

Spaghetti Squash & Meatballs

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on February 19, 2014

Supercalifragilis-delicious. That’s what I’m calling this one. Recently, we switched our oldest son back onto a gluten free diet to see if it helps with his SPD and attention troubles. I thought it would be like pulling teeth to get him to avoid many of the things he loves, but it’s not been so terrible. […]

Slopp-Cheesy Joe Sliders

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on February 17, 2014

We are huge sloppy joe fans. Definitely one of those meals that I know all the plates on the table will be polished clean. This meal could easily be slipped into the First Costco Meal Plan, or the Second Costco Meal Plan. It uses ground beef, dinner rolls and frozen veggies…each of which are on […]

Magda’s Moroccan Homemade Hamburger Helper

by Jenn K on December 17, 2013

The other day, I had a delicious lamb tagine. It was a lovingly made, braised dish that took the chef hours to prepare. Though I generally dislike lamb, the chef used Australian lamb (which is a bit less game) and added enough wonderful Moroccan flavours, that I thoroughly enjoyed the dish. Regardless of how delicious […]

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 […]
