Citrus-Rosemary Roasted Chicken {Live Cooking Demo}

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on February 14, 2014

I’ve had this on my “to make list” for a while now…I wanted to get it made while the prices on citrus were still rock bottom and have been waiting for a great sale on whole chickens. The grocery sale stars aligned and I scored a great price on a whole chicken earlier this week, […]


Cast Iron Chicken Enchiladas & How to Make Homemade Red Enchilada Sauce

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on February 3, 2014

“Mom, that says my name.” “You’re right buddy…that does say “T” for Tyler!!!” My sweet 4 year old was outside with me, ‘helping’ me take the photos of these enchiladas. He took one look inside the pan and got so excited and declared that he can’t wait to eat these. (Or the dairy free version […]


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 […]


Orange Glazed Pork Chops

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

Y’all, I wasn’t going to share this recipe until next week. Then a coupon for orange juice came out, so I did all kinds of rearranging, quick photo editing and last minute blog posting to get this out to you. Because I love when you can save on specific ingredients. And I love how coupons […]

Curried Quinoa Stuffed Acorn Squash

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on January 6, 2014

This recipe right here is why I’m not to be trusted in a grocery store without a list, or with a partial list. What you should see pictured above mixed in with the quinoa are some green peas. But they never made it on my grocery list and my short term memory in a grocery […]


Slow Cooker Honey Ham and Bean Soup

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on January 3, 2014

Seriously, dinner doesn’t get any easier than this. This is what I call a “Chop, Dump and Run” kind of dinner. (And if you added carrots, it would be a one dish slow cooker dinner…my absolute favorite kind.) This soup is sweet from the honey, with a touch of smoke, and a slight bite from […]

Cajun Turkey & Andouille 15 Bean Soup

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on December 2, 2013

Y’all know that I’m not a huge fan of turkey…but I’m also not a fan of tossing anything out, so when my mom sent us home with just about a turkey’s worth of leftovers, I thought I might be in trouble. What am I going to do with all of this? First off…I divided it […]


Butternut Squash, Apple & Pear Soup

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 22, 2013

I heart, heart, heart Butternut Squash soup. Last week, I was in Las Vegas for the Pillsbury Bake-Off and while there, we had some lovely meals. At the awards dinner, they served an amazing Butternut Squash Soup with Sage Croutons. They laid down a shallow bowl with the croutons resting in the bottom, and then […]

Pizza Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 13, 2013

I’ve been seeing a bazillion sales on squash lately…tis the season after all. I regularly see butternut and acorn squash on sale, but see fewer sales for spaghetti squash. So when I saw the at Sprouts a week (or so!) ago for $.39/lb, I snatched up a few. They have a longer “counter life” than […]
