Slow Cooker Chili with Skillet Cornbread

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on September 16, 2013

Slow cooker chili that takes less than 5 minutes to load, yes please. (Only because I had browned ground beef in the freezer.) Homemade cornbread, baked in a cast iron skillet. Double yes please. This has the makings of a perfect fall dinner. Warm, hearty and satisfying! (Also, get more great cornbread recipes in Cindy’s […]

Slow Cooker Sesame Ginger Chicken

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 21, 2013

So this is totally Type A nerdy…but I’ve totally been “practicing” for back to school time. The older boys start school on Monday, and little-middle starts preschool after Labor Day. So we’ve been trying to get back to a more normal “eat dinner time,” which has been completely erratic all summer (as it should be). […]

Orange Thai Beef Sliders with Cilantro Slaw

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 16, 2013

This beef y’all. Seriously. The orange juice did a beautiful thing to this beef as it was cooking. I’m still debating whether or not the leftovers were tastier than the tacos and these sliders. (There was a little more than 1 portion leftover from the 2 meals…and I’m not-so-secretly grateful that my husband was in […]

Shredded Orange Thai Beef Tacos

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on August 12, 2013

Happy Monday y’all! I’ve got a “2 for 1 recipe” for you tonight…but I’m only sharing the first part tonight and the other idea later in the week. I was on the hunt for a 1.25-1.5lb-ish roast, but couldn’t find one. They were all 3 lbs+ that afternoon. So I did a little meal plan […]

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 […]

Slow Cooker Peach Glazed Pork Roast

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

So I happened upon some $1.49/lb pork roast recently. I bought 2 roasts last month…one to use that week I bought them and another for the freezer. I got to talking to the butcher at the store while she was weighing and packaging up the roasts. I told her that I was surprised at the […]
