{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!

    I plan and rotate a 60 day menu. It has saved me hours of time and money. No more trying to figure out in a rush” Whats for supper.”

  2. Michelle says

    I save time in the kitchen by grilling chicken breasts in large quantities and then slicing or dicing, putting in ziploc bags and freezing them. Makes salads or mexican dishes very easy on the weeknights.

  3. Diane F says

    I have kids lunches planned ahead of time to make it easier in the morning and I also keep them simple.

  4. says

    I like to do all my chopping in one shot while I have the chopper out. That way, through out the week, I don’t have to get it out and I can skip the chopping step in the recipe.

    I make a meal plan for the week , using what I have in the house first and pre cut vegetables for them as well. This always saves me time when I have to make a meal .

  6. wendy zachariewicz says

    I tweeted , I commented , I get the email newsletter and like the facebook page and pinned a recipe as well. Hope I win!

  7. Josh says

    I like to cut and freeze all my onions and things like that. This way, when I come home after a long day and cook, that is one less thing I have to do.

  8. Melanie Carpenter says

    I love to cut up all the veggies I buy each week and place into individual snack bags. Easy for grab and go lunch boxes and quick snacks!

  9. Melanie Carpenter says

    I cut all the romaine and spinach for salads and go ahead and place it in individual plastic salad bowls. Then, I put the different toppings (dressing, cheese, croutons, bacon bits, ham, chicken, etc.) in those little plastic cups with lids and place inside the salad bowl. So when it’s time to pack lunch, I can just grab the salad bowl and go. :)

    I save money by shopping at Bottom Dollar instead of Giant. I feel like I get more bang for my buck. I save money by being aware of the prices and their cycles. This way I know when I am getting a good deal.
