Description
Melissa d’Arabian, host of Food Network’s Ten Dollar Dinners and season 5 winner of The Next Food Network Star, makes good on the $10 promise of dinner for four in her eagerly awaited debut cookbook. For home cooks who care about what they feed their families and want to stretch their dollars, Melissa is the best guide for putting delicious meals on the table. With four young girls ages six and under, and a hit show on Food Network, Melissa d’Arabian focuses on savvy budgeting, efficient shopping, and full-flavored cooking. Ten Dollar Dinners has 140 recipes and more than 100 creative, practical tips on great money-savers (“Clear-Your-Pantry Week”); inventive takes on old standby dinners (try her Moroccan Meatloaf); and how to get ingredients to last longer (keep your green onions in a glass of water and they will regrow several times over!). And with a coding system to help you create your own $10 menu, Ten Dollar Dinners celebrates spending with purpose, cooking with love, minimizing time spent in front of the stove, and savoring your homemade meal.

        Comments about this product:

        When I hear 10.00 meals that should mean counting every ingredient. Not what they say you should have stocked really tight budget people do not have every spice. Most have Italian herb. Garlic season salt peper . I have made several of these meals and from start to finish don't come out to 10.00 even counting just a portion of the cost of spices.sugars flours.

          Comments about this product:

          Have made several of the recipes in this cookbook. I'd been trying to think of other ways to use celery and her side dish casserole of celery was great, even for finicky husband who is a "meat & potatoes" guy. He wants to try several of her other recipes. Love the show and the cookbook. It is definitely a must-have for busy cooks on a budget or not!!

          Comments about this product:

          This book has some easy recipes and the ingredients needed are inexpensive. There are quite a few pictures of the meals so you know what they should look like. If you liked the show, you will like this cookbook. There are also some great money saving tips.

          Comments about this product:

          Melissa's approach to meals is trying to save folks money. Several of her dishes I have already copied from your website and used, but now I have most of these in her book. Also her family played a part in the book - I like that.

          Planning meals.

          By VIRGINIA J

          from Wisconsin Rapids, WI

          Comments about this product:

          The book came quickly and had over the top packaging to protect the product during shipping. The only thing I was a little disappointed in was the meal planning. I was expecting something that had balanced, planned meals with shopping lists. You have to create your own menu from the recipes. I do write down Melissa menus for items in the recipe book that I see on T.V.

          Without doubt the finest, most useful book of family recipes that taste expensive but cost $10 for a family of four. Better than two (2) thumbs up!

          Salads and soups

          By Lynn M

          from Carlsbad, NM

          Comments about this product:

          I am doing Weight Watchers so eating salads and soups are two very important areas for me to keep within my points value. I have enjoyed Ms. d'Arabian's Chopped Salad with Chicken, Salami and Mozzarella. Most of the ingredients have zero points so this fit it well with my plan. My next one from the cookbook will be the Salade Nicoise with Lemon-Thyme Vinaigrette. While I already make a very healthy veggie soup/stew, I am looking forward to making Ms. d'Arabian's Creamy Any Veggie Soup which uses different varieties and seasonings. I really like this cookbook and is a wonderful addition to the many, many I already have!

          I really like this book. Melissa intertwined tips and treats throughout the book that makes it so special. I was so happy when she won Food Network Star and I LOVE her show, so naturally I HAD to get her book. Awesome! Thanks!

          This is a wonderful cookbook for any cook. There are great hints for a bingining cook as well as an experienced cook. All the recipes I have tried were not complicated but turned out fanastic. I am giving 4 of these books as Christmas presents.

          I made 5 recipes in the first 5 days that I had the book. All 5 turned out fabulous!
          I love the cookbook so much that I just ordered two more to give to my brother and best friend!

          By Sherri C

          from San Antonio, TX

          Comments about this product:

          I think this book is good for anyone who wants to explore the kitchen. Basic recipes that taste expensive and easy to comprehend. I love the pictures and the stories that go with the cookbook. I watched Melissa D'Arabian win the Next FoodNetwork Star and so this cookbook is even more special to me. I actually wish I would have ordered more as Christmas Gifts.
