Erin Chase does it again, ready to warm your heart and your family with $5 One-Dish Dinners
Who would turn down a plate of sizzling beef fajitas or a hot and bubbling Swiss Chicken casserole right out of the oven? Who knows how to make all these things easily and for only $5? Erin Chase, The $5 Dinner Mom, that's who! Erin's newest book, The $5 Dinner Mom One-Dish Dinners Cookbook is filled with more than 150 one-dish recipes that don't cost an arm and a leg, are easy to prepare and even easier to clean up after. Here are just a few mouthwatering examples straight from Erin's kitchen:
- Bowtie Pasta with Bacon, Corn and Parmesan
- Santa Fe Chicken and Rice Casserole
- Skillet Taco Pie
- Sausage and Black Bean Soup
- Spicy Quinoa with Corn, Beans and Lime

Erin's even included a few $5-and-under deserts like Mango Raspberry Crumble and Pear, Apple and Caramel Crisp to round out a meal on nights when the budget allows. With her new book, Erin Chase shows America that it's not only possible to eat right, eat well and stay on a budget. She also shows us how easy it can be to cook, clean up fast, and spend more time with the family.

Good book if you live in the states. As the food prices are way too off to make these recipes for $5 in Canada. ( .20 cents for bbq sauce)
I didn't find anything new recipe-wise in this book, but did have a chuckle at the writes food price breakdown.
If your starting out on your own this may be a good recipe book for you as the meals are cheaper - not $5 though - and there are lots of them in the book.
Another let down from this book - no pictures of the final product.

Lots of good recipes, although there are many of them that couldn't be made for $5 here in Canada. $10 maybe, but not $5.
