Banana Breakfast Split

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on February 7, 2014

Put a new spin on your yogurt, granola and fruit breakfasts…this also makes for a fantastic, filling and uber healthy after school snack. (Ask me how I know!) I saw this on Pinterest and knew it would be an instant hit with this crowd. For my dairy-free little people, I dropped a small scoop of […]

Salsa Verde Breakfast Tacos

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on January 31, 2014

Okay y’all…first of all…these breakfast tacos are AMAZING. My husband, who has become quite the “taste tester” over the years, went on and on and on and on about these being the best breakfast tacos. BUT…this meal wasn’t without incident. After dinner, I noticed that Tyler had developed a rash on his chin and by […]

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 […]

  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 […]

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 […]
