Beef & Bean ~ Oven Tacos

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on July 1, 2013

Tacos. We love tacos. The boys devour them. They love the crunchy mess. They love the flavors. They love to see how full they can make them. And they love to eat them on their special taco plates. (My mom gave us some for Christmas…GREAT gift!) I love the concept of making tacos in the […]

Slow Cooker Lemon & Garlic Chicken

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on June 26, 2013

It’s really unfortunate that photos can’t communicate taste. And flavor infusion. Because seriously, I can taste the lemon and garlic flavors that infused perfectly into the chicken and the potatoes…just looking at the photo. I was actually quite surprised…as I’ve made a number of different garlic-chicken-potatoes slow cooker meals in the past, but not this […]

Real Food Patriot Dessert – The Fruit Flag

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on June 24, 2013

If you’re looking for a patriotic and uber healthy dessert, look no further! For Memorial Day, we headed to my dad’s house for a backyard BBQ. Before I had both feet in the door, I’d been recruited to help with the fruit flag. It’s not terribly time intensive, and with 2 of us working on […]

Seven Layer Tostadas

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on June 14, 2013

This is one of those “it just came together” meals… A few weeks back, we took the kids downtown during Fiesta week to go to the River Parade. They were serving some delicious tex-mex options in the section where our seats were located. They had fajitas, as well as bean and cheese tostadas. The kids […]

Strawberry Spinach Quinoa Salad

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

Hello lovely. Yes, this is a lovely, lovely salad. It’s lovely because it combines a few of my favorite flavors (strawberry, spinach and almonds). It’s lovely because it tasted light, but the quinoa made the me feel full.  And it’s even lovelier because it is made of “ingredients I had on hand.” Otherwise known as […]

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, […]

Alea’s Honey Mustard Salmon Salad

by Alea on May 7, 2013

My husband loves salmon, but it is rather expensive when you have to buy it at the grocery store. One way that I add salmon onto our menu without breaking the budget is by using it in salads. I only need 6 – 8 ounces of salmon to create a flavorful salad. My husband and […]

Grilled Pomegranate Chicken with Mango BBQ Sauce

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on May 6, 2013

Grilling season is officially upon us. Well, it’s been upon us here in South Texas for a few weeks…some days better than others for grilling. I’m thinking the last “really cold” front has passed through and we’ve been enjoying some lovely weather as a result. This weekend we had my sister and her family over […]
