{CLOSED} One Dish Dinners Cookbook Giveaway {10 Winners}

We’re back this week with more daily giveaways of my One Dish Dinners Cookbook! So I was at my sister’s baby shower this past weekend (so excited for her to be a mom!), and a friend of ours asked me which is my favorite book. Which, of course, is like asking which of the boys is my favorite child. There’s not an answer to that…they all have personalities of their own, as do each of the books.

The first cookbook is the “smarty pants” cookbook because it has all the meaty, juicy information for stretching your grocery dollars to. the. max. The second cookbook will help you all throughout the day, breakfast, lunch and snack-time. And this cookbook is so, so, so practical. It’s the super fun and creative, but logical-practical child…if we have to put a personality on it.

The One Dish Dinners cookbook is for every busy home chef, moms and dads alike, who are struggling to come up with creative dinner ideas that won’t cost an arm and a leg, AND that won’t leave a ginormous mess in the sink!

With this cookbook, you’ll have more variety on the dinner table, meals that please your family, more money in your pocketbook, less time in the kitchen and way less mess to deal with at the end of the day!

I’ll be giving away 10 copies each day this week, but they are only “live” for 24 hours. You can enter up to 5 times on each giveaway. Please leave separate comments for your separate entries!

    To save money, I always buy ahead when something is really on sale and avoid paying full price later.

  2. Jennifer G says

    I save money and time in my kitchen and pocketbook by buying meats such as hamburger or chicken when on sale. I then spend that weekend prepping the meats to make meals easy. Like with the hamburger I will precolonial with and without onions and then bag in portions and freeze for use in any recipe that calls for browned meat, it saves you a step. Then I make my meatloaves and regular and mini meatballs package and freeze till needed. Or I make a few shepherd’s pies at once wrap and freeze. With chicken I will season and bake or simmer on stove to cook. Then shred, dice, or cut in strips then portion and freeze to be added to meals when needed. Or I will pound, cut up the chicken before freezing to save me that step when it comes time to cook. Hope this helps someone save time and their pocketbook in the future. Thankyou for your great site!

    The number one way I save money is by looking at circulars, and then figuring out what I want to do with them so I have a good list before I go to the market. If I have to make multiple trips or don’t make a list, then I always spend more.

  4. Ginny Norton says

    My favorite way to save time in the kitchen is too cook a skillet dinner for the following night while I am waiting for tonights dinner in the oven.

  5. Sandy N says

    My fav way to save time in the kitchen is plan meals for the week and using a crock pot – great timesaver!

  6. Denise Wilson says

    When cooking up taco meat or spaghetti meat sauce, I cook up an extra batch or two. I cook a whole chicken and get about three meals out of it.

  7. heather geiser says

    When we have breakfast for dinner I double, sometimes tripple the batch to freeze for breakfast! Makes our mornings much less crazy!

  8. Shannon Jones says

    Please enter me in the contest! I save time in the kitchen during holidays by assembling all the casseroles the night before so all I have to do is put them in the oven on the big day. I do it on other days I know are busy, like when my son has band practice right at dinnertime. Assembling everything ahead of time means all I have to do is pop it in the oven when we’re ready for it.

  9. Katherine says

    To be more frugal, I am cooking at home more and trying new recipes but trying to be careful to pick recipes that use up foods that I already have in my pantry.

  10. Karin H says

    when meat is on sale, I stock the freezer…this week was .99/pound chicken breast and whole chickens….I brined some breasts, crock potted a chicken, and now we have precooked and premeasured meat as well as some darn good stock

  11. Katie in AZ says

    favorite way to save time is to make my own mixes from my ingredients instead of buying boxed mixes.

  12. Kristy Bartlett says

    They way I save the most money that I completely take for granted is menu planning. I fell of the bandwagon and realized that I had to immediately get back on track!
