$5 Dinner Cookbook Giveaway


I am so excited that my friend, The $5 Dinner Mom’s cookbook was released today. If you are not familiar with her site, Erin makes $5 dinners for her family each night. I received the cookbook a few weeks ago and it is filled with great recipes, grocery shopping tips, and coupon advice. I know this cookbook will become a well worn item in my kitchen over the next few years.

I am even more excited to be able to give away three The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbooks! Leave a comment and I will pick 3 winners on Christmas Eve.
