Rosemary Maple Glazed Turkey Breast ~ #realfoodholiday Recipe

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 9, 2014

It’s that time of year again. When I get to experimenting and figure out the best way to doctor up the turkey this year. I’ve shared before that I’m not the hugest fan of turkey. I don’t mind it. But I don’t really like it. (Until now!) It’s just so bland to me. Maybe that’s […]


Short-Cut Butternut Squash and Borlotti Risotto

by Amanda Martin on November 6, 2014

I’m all about making life as easy as possible. Especially in the kitchen. This one-pot meal requires little attention from the chef unlike traditional risotto, but still tastes and looks so elegant. The borlotti beans are an Italian brown bean that can be replaced with pinto beans. It offers great color contrast. But I’ve made […]


Delicious and easy. That’s the name of my cooking game friend! This salmon is both of those things…super simple to prepare and oh, so tasty too! Salmon recipes are not ones I share around here often, but I think it’s important to serve fish and seafood as part of a balanced diet. When I do […]

Freezer Friendly Stovetop Ratatouille

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on October 17, 2014

Yes, you can freeze Ratatouille. You can. Really, you can. A friend on Facebook shared the other day… Throwing together a quick dinner at the last minute when one kid is eating only soft stuff due to new braces, another kid is a vegetarian, and the third kid is avoiding dairy, and I left my […]

All the flavors of fall in a dinner dish. That’s this rice pilaf! When making this, I used 1/2 cup of wild rice because I have some in the pantry and I’m trying to use it up! You could use all brown rice or even all wild rice if you have some. Wild rice is […]


Spaghetti Squash Miso Soup with Edamame

by Amanda Martin on October 9, 2014

What’s your favorite Autumn soup? Wait, isn’t it just cold or hot soups? Well, maybe. I believe autumn soups are different from winter soups. They might be a little lighter in texture because you don’t need anything to “stick to your ribs” just yet. And they have this color about them. A color that agrees […]
