General Mills and Pssst… Introduce Budget-Stretching Cookbook

Looking for recipes to stretch your food dollar? How about a cookbook with 200 recipes, none costing more than $5 to make?

“The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook” by Erin Chase, a MyBlogSpark member and creator of 5DollarDinners.com, prepared her first $5 dinner in August 2008.

She turned it into a three-fold mission:

• To make dinner for her family every night for $5 or less!
• To prepare healthy meals using natural and wholesome ingredients!
• To encourage and inspire others to do the same!

In addition to 200 economical recipes each with a Frugal Fact, she offers suggestions for making the most of grocery shopping and couponing. Her tips on meal planning include sample menus and ideas for using leftovers. Her recipes feed a family of four and list the approximate cost of the ingredients. Here’s a recipe Erin suggests to get you started.

The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook” is available at retail outlets, and right here at the Deep South Dish Store!
