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

I’ve spent the past 2 days in Los Angeles…working on a few projects, as well as taping a segment for Marie Osmond’s new show, Marie. They were so much fun and wonderful to work with, and are thrilled about One-Dish Dinners and helping make dinner simpler and easier for you. I’m headed home tomorrow, then a quick trip to Houston, and finally back home with my babies. OK, not really babies…but they’ll always be babies, right?

    My favorite way to save time and money in the kitchen is to plan meals around what is on sale and with coupons available.

  2. Wendy says

    To save time in the kitchen, I freeze chicken in freezer bags with the marinade I intend to use. Then as the meat thaws, it is also marinading and will be ready to go when I am. In addition, these are often dishes I can put into the crock pot and forget all day while I do the rest of the stuff that needs to get done.

  3. Stephanie says

    My slow cooker is handy all year long. I make ribs, cubed steak, pulled pork, and roast in it-it always comes out tender and juicy!

  4. Sarah G says

    I like to cook double batches of meals and freeze one batch.That way on busy days I just have to thaw and heat!

  5. Andrea C. says

    I like to chop thing in the morning so they are ready in the evening to make dinner. It saves so much time and I get more time to talk with the kids between getting home from school and going to bed.

  6. Stephanie says

    I plan, plan, plan! What meals do we need this week, what do I have on hand that needs to be used up, what’s on sale?

  7. Hilary Richards says

    My favorite time and money saving trick it to always have cooked beans, lots of varieties, and cooked ground beef in the freezer. Makes it so easy to pull out meat or beans and create a delicious frugal dinner.

  8. says

    I save time and money in the kitchen by cooking ahead (e.g. browning a big batch of ground beef at one time, and freezing it. or cooking several chicken breasts at once and freezing). I also save time by keeping a well stocked pantry of my frequently used items, so I always have a “go to” recipe ready to assemble on those busy days.

  9. Candace says

    Batch cooking! For example, slice up 3-4 whole onions in the Cuisinart, spread them on a cookie sheet to freeze, and then transfer them to a freezer bag. Then I just take out what I need for busy weeknight cooking.
