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 […]

Juicy Salsa Burger – What’s the Secret Ingredient?!?

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 […]

Beef & Bean ~ Oven Tacos

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 1, 2013

Tacos. We love tacos. The boys devour them. They love the crunchy mess. They love the flavors. They love to see how full they can make them. And they love to eat them on their special taco plates. (My mom gave us some for Christmas…GREAT gift!) I love the concept of making tacos in the […]

My husband called me while waiting in an airport for his flight home last week. It soon became obvious that he was hungry because he started telling me how much he loved my wraps. Then he started sharing ideas for wraps that I could make him in the future. I was pretty sure by “the […]

Balsamic Meat & Mushroom Kebabs

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on May 29, 2013

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 […]
