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

My boys love burgers. It’s generally what they order off the kids’ menu when we go out for dinner, and what they would request if I asked them what they wanted to grill for dinner. When Hellmann’s asked us to give this new recipe for the Juicy Salsa Burger a try, I hoped it would […]

Y’all…the grilling bug has hit our house. It seems we are outside grilling and eating at least 3 nights a week these days. The last few weeks have been out of town on the weekends, so during the week it’s been a “pantry and freezer clean-out.” Literally…clean out the food and then clean out the […]

Summer is upon us. (Maybe, I did see a ton of sweater and coat comments in my FB feed over the weekend from my friends up north.) One of the things that I love about summer is the fresh produce, farmer’s market and being able to get great prices on fruits and veggies throughout the […]

This Recipe is being reposted from 2011. I had plans to share a grilled chicken sandwich tonight, but when I was taking the photos, the card wasn’t in my camera. Doh! I’ll remake soon and share later. So for now… There was a lot of buzz at the start of 2011 about “your word for […]

Mushroom Meatball Subs

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on April 10, 2013

Finely chopped mushrooms mixed into your next batch of meatballs. Seriously. You’ve GOT to try it. Adore the flavor that the mushrooms add to the meatballs…and these mushroom-meatballs are perfect on a sub with a side of chips and fruit. (And…the boys had no idea. Not that I was trying to sneak the mushrooms in. […]
