Ten Dollar Dinners

Ten Dollar Dinners
140 Recipes and Tips to Elevate Simple, Fresh Meals Any Night of the Week
Melissa d'Arabian
Raquel Pelzel

Melissa became known when she won season 5 of The Next Food Network Star. But she's been making simple, inexpensive meals for her family for years. In fact, her homemade yogurt recipe is probably what landed her a spot on the show. Her cookbook simplifies cooking and gives a price range for each recipe so the cook can plan a meal that is fresh and under ten dollars. The book is filled with helpful cooking tips and glimpses into the d'Arabian family.

I am a very simple cook. If the recipe has tons of ingredients or instructions I pass. My family has some really picky eaters so I was surprised to have quite a few recipes earmarked to try. I look forward to testing them out. Most of the recipes in this book are simple and easy to make. This is a book for the simple cook, the family on a budget, and the mom wanting to prepare fresh food for her family.

I received this book free of charge from Goodreads in exchange for my honest review.
