Ham and Cheese Breakfast Egg-Tacos

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

Having a mixed bag of food allergies and intolerances in our family makes certain dinner ideas and concepts a challenge…but what I love about this one…it easily catered to my egg-free child and my gluten-free child, both of whom happen to be dairy free as well. Ryan enjoyed this ham and egg rollup that you […]

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 […]

Kid-Made Christmas Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Truffles

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on December 20, 2013

Coat something in sprinkles, especially the Christmas variety, and it’s bound to be a hit, right?! The idea to coat a cookie dough truffle with sprinkles comes from a contestant at this year’s Pillsbury Bake-Off. I decided that one of the several “cookies” that we would make this holiday season would be these chocolate chip […]

Christmas Day Brunch Recipe Round-Up

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on December 19, 2013

Ahhh, Christmas morning. The excitement, the fun, the “wow, I love it!” exclamations, the tearing of paper, the mess, the noise, the utter bliss with your family. Until. 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 […]

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 […]

Zesty Egg Salad

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 5, 2013

I <3 egg salad. I really, really <3 egg salad. (I wish that I could include a cute little puffy, pounding heart…because I really like and love egg salad.) If I’m not having a green salad for lunch, chances are I’m having egg salad, on a sandwich or with pita chips. Well, I recently gave […]

Migas with Black Beans & Tomatoes

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 29, 2013

Not long ago, I had lunch with some friends in Austin at Torchey’s Tacos. (If you’re in Austin, Houston or Dallas, you must give these guys a try. And I might start a petition that they get a truck set up in San Antonio asap.) Ever since, all I can think about making for breakfast is […]

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. […]

Sweet Potato Zucchini Frittata

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on May 15, 2013

I like frittatas. My family likes frittatas. But for different reasons. I like frittatas because they are the breakfast version of stone soup. And I like them because I’ve never tried one that I didn’t like. Pretty much any veggie and/or veggie combination works in a frittata, and this one proves that point. Spinach, mushrooms, […]

Leftover Hash Brown Bake

by Dana S on April 16, 2013

I made hash browns with eggs for a special Saturday morning breakfast only to discover that my kids don’t like hash browns. What to do with these leftover potatoes? I quickly searched the Internet and found a recipe idea using ingredients that I already had in the fridge. I made a few adjustments and it was perfect! […]
