    I am a new guest to $5.00 dinners. your meals sound great. I will have to try some.

    I like this pizza one.

    I was also wondering if you ever tried to used english muffins to make personal pizzas.

    I work at a Childcare center and we used to make pizza using english muffins. The kids love them, but so do the teachers.

    Plus english muffins are pretty cheap. If you are in a rush and the fam wants pizza you could forgo the mixing and rolling of the dough.

    Still cheap and tasty!!!

    I am excited about exploring your site and preparing some of the meals.

    Thanx for sharing!

    Have a happy Wednesday :)

    My pizza stone needs to preheated. What kind of stone do you have? Also, I buy my yeast in bulk so it’s really inexpensive but I do have to proof it first. I live in a Los Angeles beach city so there is NO WAY I can mimic your recipes at your costs, unfortunately. I love your website though!!

    I saw you on Rachel Ray and was very interested in your $5 meals. I cook almost every evening and it seems I am always spending too much money at the grocery store. I am going to try to start using coupons and planning weekly menus by my local sale paper. You have some great ideas. Good luck and God bless you.

      All the recipes written since January have the print option. I have not gone back YET to update older posts with the plugin.

      You can Michele. I’m sorry I don’t have a by hand recipe posted on the site. You can google it or search on a recipe site for detailed instructions!

    I have never owned a bread machine.
    I enjoy your recipes and am thinking that it is time to invest in one. Do you have any recommendations?

  6. says

    For those of you without bread machines please check out yardsales or flea markets.
    At any given time I see several each time I go out to them. I bought my last one at a yard sale new in the box for only $8.
