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 […]

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

Sausage and Mushroom Brinner Tacos

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 17, 2013

Some would argue that breakfast tacos need eggs. I would argue that they aren’t a requirement, but certainly a fixture ingredient. But we’re not talking about breakfast tacos…we’re talking “brinner tacos” tonight! Soft tacos that aren’t traditional tacos because they use breakfast sausage, mushrooms and some veggies…sizzled to perfection, then garnished and rolled for consumption. […]

Protein Rich Orange Berry Smoothie

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

I’m all about being genuine. And transparent. And honest. So I’m gonna confess that I was really nervous to try this smoothie. Which is ironic really. Follow me for a minute… I love making cookies. I love sneaking bites of raw cookie dough. Spoonfuls, really, since I’m being honest. Raw cookie dough contains raw eggs. […]
