Slow Cooker Balsamic Chicken with Spring Vegetables

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on June 18, 2014

I rarely. I mean rarely. Like practically never. Ever. Maybe once every 2 years. Look at other cookbooks.

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on April 28, 2014

Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner…and you know what that means… Tex-Mex food abounds at our house. All.week.long. There are many reasons that we moved our family from Ohio to Texas in 2012. And I’m beginning to think that one of the sub-conscience reasons for moving was to be back in the land […]

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 […]
