Denise’s Wonton Quiche Cups

by Denise on November 8, 2012

When putting together our weekly meal plans I always like to have a breakfast for dinner night once a week because it’s a great way to reduce our grocery budget, since breakfast entrees are typically cheaper. These wonton quiche cups are a fun way to prepare and serve eggs for supper, or we also like […]


{CLOSED!} Blender Pumpkin Pie Pancakes {And Blender Giveaway!}

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 7, 2012

So I don’t make pancake batter in the blender very often. But we love Pumpkin Pancakes, but we don’t love that sometimes they turn out on the dense side. It’s hard to prevent that because pumpkin is really heavy and when you mix it into the batter, it makes the batter heavy. But I was […]


Magda’s Creme Caramel French Toast

by Jenn K on October 18, 2012

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, nutritionally speaking. This particular breakfast is NOT nutritional, but it is a wonderful, delicious, decadent breakfast for a special occasion. This is the breakfast that everyone asks for when it is their birthday or other special day. We have this a few times a year, and […]


Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal {with Gluten Free variation!}

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on October 1, 2012

So we’ve had a handful of “brisk” mornings here in San Antonio. And by “brisk,” I mean the temp has dropped below 70. Which must mean fall is here because I’ve seen a number of people out wearing sweatshirts. Or my blood is already starting to thin out some, because it’s really not that cool? […]


Denise’s Southwestern Egg In A Basket

by Denise on August 9, 2012

We love to make these southwestern style eggs in a basket for breakfast on the weekend or even for a late night snack. They’re super easy to make and we almost always have the ingredients on hand. Egg in a basket is usually made with toast and has many other names like egg in a […]


Alea’s Hash Browns with Summer Squash

by Alea on July 24, 2012

It’s that time of year. The time of year when I struggle with my morals. Is it dishonest to hide squash in recipes? What if I adopt the “don’t ask, don’t tell” squash policy? Is it acceptable as long as I admit that I have once again hidden squash in a recipe if they ask? […]


Breakfast Enchiladas

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 18, 2012

Yet another enchiladas recipe for you. I’m starting to think I need to create a special enchilada section on the site! We just can’t seem to get enough enchiladas these days. This is actually one of the first meals I’ve cooked from start to finish since coming out of the “blechs,” mainly because it didn’t […]


Smucker’s Breakfast Solutions – Plus $4.50 in Printable Coupons

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 2, 2012

A couple of weeks ago, I spent a few days out in LA…working on a couple of different projects. This being one. (Behind the Scenes – Other Side of the Camera photo) My friends at Smucker’s kindly asked if I’d help them with their new Breakfast Solutions campaign and of course, I said yes! Now, […]


Spinach Mushroom Quiche Recipe

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on May 18, 2012

Breakfast for dinner…yes, please! Light and tasty summer dinner…yes, please! Powerful flavors in a simple dish…yes, please! This is actually one of my favorite quiches, that I usually make with ground sausage…but I swapped out the sausage for mushrooms…and the result was amazing! (Find a slew of mushroom recipes and “swapability ideas” on the Mushroom […]


Magda’s Cherry Bread Pudding

by Jenn K on May 9, 2012

This is a wonderful dessert that is somewhat healthier than traditional bread pudding because of the substitution of the evaporated milk and low-fat milk for the cream and full-fat milk that are usually called for. This would make a lovely special occasion breakfast or brunch. Yum! You can substitute any kind of fresh or canned […]
