Y’all…I am thrilled that you decided to stop by after catching me in the kitchen with Rach and Nick Lachey! I hope you enjoyed the segment and you’ve got these 2 delicious slow cooker meals on your meal plan next week.

(Both Recipes are from my 3rd cookbook, The $5 Dinner Mom’s One Dish Dinners Cookbook!)

Take a few minutes to look around and get to know all the parts to the website that will help you start spending less of your hard earned dollars on groceries! I’m so glad you are here!

5dollardinners Cookbooks


This morning, several recipes from my cookbooks were featured on the show.  And yes…they each cost me less than $5! My cookbooks are the best resources for getting all the information about strategic couponing, strategic grocery shopping, strategic meal planning, batch cooking, homemade convenience foods and more. They are comprehensive and will give you the “big picture” that is the $5 Dinners concept…and will help you start spending less of your hard earned money at the grocery store!!!
