by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on April 11, 2014

Sometimes the ingredient stars just align and the meal that I was thinking about, turns out even better than I imagined. I wanted to make something that I knew the boys would love, using a can of coconut milk I’ve had in the pantry for a few weeks. (I purchased it with this recipe in […]

Ranch Chicken & Potatoes Casserole

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on March 24, 2014

This recipe is part of the latest 21 Gluten Free Meals from Costco Plan. Chicken + Potatoes + Cheese + Bacon…it’s the perfect ‘quad-fecta’…because trifecta doesn’t work here.

Chicken Fajita Nachos

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on January 20, 2014

I love it when I’m actually operating “one step ahead” of myself. What I mean by that, is that life moves so much more smoothly when I’m prepared. When I’ve taken a few minutes at some point to actually prepare. It makes meals like this one easier to get to the table…and these days, I […]
