Merissa’s Cheeseburger Rice

by Merissa on September 26, 2013

This Cheeseburger Rice recipe is so easy to throw together after a long day and a great bonus is that it’s naturally gluten free in case anyone in your family has a gluten intolerance. One of the best things about this meal is that it’s very inexpensive to throw together and most of the ingredients […]

Chili with Cornbread Waffles

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on September 23, 2013

Y’all are just going to have to trust me on this. A little kick and spice in the chili, plus a little sweet from the waffles…a totally party on the plate and on your palate. Also, I thought that I had some shredded cheese in the freezer to add on top of these waffles, but […]

Slow Cooker Chili with Skillet Cornbread

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

Slow cooker chili that takes less than 5 minutes to load, yes please. (Only because I had browned ground beef in the freezer.) Homemade cornbread, baked in a cast iron skillet. Double yes please. This has the makings of a perfect fall dinner. Warm, hearty and satisfying! (Also, get more great cornbread recipes in Cindy’s […]

BBQ Meatballs on Mashed Potatoes

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on September 6, 2013

First, please pardon the iPhone photo. I couldn’t figure out what happened to my memory card for my camera, but it has since been found and we can go back to the regularly scheduled photos! As promised, the “other BBQ meatballs” meal I mentioned last week. (If you missed them, here are the  BBQ Meatball […]

BBQ Meatball Kebabs

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

Well, these babies didn’t last long in the freezer. I made up 2 batches of BBQ meatballs over the weekend, in an attempt to prepare myself for the back to school frenzy…and here is the first of 2 new recipes using BBQ meatballs. (I hope to share the other next week…if I get it made […]

Orange Thai Beef Sliders with Cilantro Slaw

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

This beef y’all. Seriously. The orange juice did a beautiful thing to this beef as it was cooking. I’m still debating whether or not the leftovers were tastier than the tacos and these sliders. (There was a little more than 1 portion leftover from the 2 meals…and I’m not-so-secretly grateful that my husband was in […]

Shredded Orange Thai Beef Tacos

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 12, 2013

Happy Monday y’all! I’ve got a “2 for 1 recipe” for you tonight…but I’m only sharing the first part tonight and the other idea later in the week. I was on the hunt for a 1.25-1.5lb-ish roast, but couldn’t find one. They were all 3 lbs+ that afternoon. So I did a little meal plan […]

Angie’s Wonton Taquitos

by Angie on August 1, 2013

I started telling my husband about a wonderful recipe I was creating using wonton wrappers as taco shells. I thought the kids would enjoy some baby tacos. (Everything tastes better when it has baby in the title). He replied, “You mean taquitos?” I said “What? That’s a thing?” and after a google search, sure enough, […]

Taco Bites (or Tiny Tacos)

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

Tacos are usually a big hit at our house…but they also make a giant mess, and the littler boys get frustrated with them. Ryan (who just turned 8…see his “birthday cake wreck” here!) can usually get his mouth around a regular size taco, but Charlie and Tyler really struggle with eating a hard shell taco. […]

Alea’s Slow Cooker Pot Roast

by Alea on July 9, 2013

We have been alternating between high temperatures and flash floods. Every time it rains, I want comfort foods like pot roast and potatoes. But it is so hot that I don’t want to turn on the oven. My slow cooker once again came to my rescue! I love that is allows me to cook family […]
