Christmas Day Brunch Recipe Round-Up

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on December 19, 2013

Ahhh, Christmas morning. The excitement, the fun, the “wow, I love it!” exclamations, the tearing of paper, the mess, the noise, the utter bliss with your family. Until. The tummies start grumbling and cries of “What’s for breakfast?” start to be heard. Everyone does Christmas breakfast/brunch a little differently. Some like quick meals that were […]

Orange Cardamom Blueberry Crostada

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

  When was the last time that you had one of those super small world connections that sent chills down your spine and made the hair on your arms stand up? For me it was a few weeks ago when I was in Vegas. I hopped into an elevator, headed down for a seminar the […]

Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal

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

This baked oatmeal caused a bit of a stir in my kitchen. I set it out on the counter to cool just about the same time that I had dinner getting on the table. My oldest bounced through getting the cups and silverware onto the table and got so excited that I made brownies for […]

Roasted Poblano Pepper Quiche

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 8, 2013

Egg pie. That’s what my about to be 4 year old called this quiche. He has become quite the sous chef in the past few weeks…always coming into the kitchen and helping me cook. I’ve started to let him help me crack the eggs (highly supervised still!) and taught him it’s better to crack on […]

Pumpkin Overnight Oats

by Dana S on October 15, 2013

In addition to being an easy make ahead breakfast, this recipe provides 6 grams of fiber + almost 200% of your daily needs for vitamin A! Mix up the ingredients the night before. […]

Mango & Coconut Rice Pudding

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 31, 2013

So I told the kids we were having pudding for dinner and their eyes lit up. Then they saw that it wasn’t the pudding they hoped it would be, and that little glimmer of ‘she’s really gonna let us eat dessert for dinner’ hope faded. Then they took a bite and their eyes lit up […]

Peanut Butter Overnight Oats

by Dana S on July 30, 2013

Oatmeal is the perfect breakfast food: filling, inexpensive and healthy. But hot oatmeal in the hot, sticky summer? Not so much. That is where overnight oats come to play. Overnight oats are a cold, muesli-type cereal. You prepare them the night before for a quick and easy breakfast. The star ingredients in this recipe are […]

Migas with Black Beans & Tomatoes

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

Not long ago, I had lunch with some friends in Austin at Torchey’s Tacos. (If you’re in Austin, Houston or Dallas, you must give these guys a try. And I might start a petition that they get a truck set up in San Antonio asap.) Ever since, all I can think about making for breakfast is […]

Pancakes with Peach Syrup

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 19, 2013

Have you ever made your own pancake syrup? If not, I highly recommend it…and you could start with this one. (But be warned, you may never go back to the bottled kind.) Ever since my little sugar-free stint in August of 2011 (or was it 2012?), I’ve made it a point to squeeze harder in […]
