For home cooks who care about what they feed their families and want to stretch their dollars, this eagerly awaited debut cookbook from Melissa d’Arabian, host of Food Network's Ten Dollar Dinners and winner of The Next Food Network Star, makes good on the $10 promise of dinner for four.
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 re-grow 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.
Melissa is a pro at creating satisfying meals that adults and kids alike will enjoy, using everyday ingredients, transforming them into delicious dinners: Her Potato Bacon Torte (which, at 50 cents a serving, was one of her winning recipes on The Next Food Network Star) shows how basic and inexpensive grocery store ingredients can be turned into an amazingly satisfying dish. Her Roasted Vegetable Tian is a great way to take advantage of deals in the produce aisle. The 4-Step Chicken offers a plan for getting food on the table in just minutes, using almost anything in the pantry.
Anyone can use this book, especially those who want to save money and feel great about cooking sensibly for elevated, simple meals that are healthy family-pleasers.
On her daytime cooking series, season five winner of The Next Food Network Star and stay-at-home mom, Melissa d'Arabian, shows viewers how to incorporate creative and tasty meals into their budgets by sharing her tried-and-true recipes. With countless tips to save time and money in the kitchen, she keeps her $10 promise in every episode: four people, ten bucks, infinite possibilities. From approachable Parisian and Moroccan menus to sophisticated upgrades for everyday chicken and pork, Ten Dollar Dinners with Melissa d'Arabian demonstrates home cooking at its finest.
I got this cookbook because I had tried several of Melissa's recipes with great success. This cookbook was great but so much more. I am not particularly cost concious and I had not purchased this cookbook for that perspective but there are so many wonderful tips and surprises that I became fascinated and will now start to employ some of them. I have now tried 5 more of the recipes and they are all foolproof and delicous. My dinner party guests have raved about them all and yes I serve them to company!! Thanks Food Network and Melissa for this well thought out cookbook with easy to follow amazing recipes, great photographs, and creative tips. I hope there is a second edition to follow !
Surprised by elegance of paperback. Excellent quality and loved the amt of pictures. Bargain at the discounted price.
The recipes are easy to follow and lots of tips are given for getting a bigger bang for your buck. Love watching Melissa's show too. Have learned several cooking techniques I use all the time.
This book has really got me thinking about some less expensive menu options that are delicious. Love her money saving tips. The food is delicious and simple to prepare. This is a must have for every cook
Melissa did a great job on cookbook. She gave so many tips on saving money without sacrificing quality and flavor!
Her meals are easy and in keeping with the economy, she tells you how to mske it for less.
Recipes were enticing, sounded yummy, many were unique to me, pictures of most of the dishes, and the hints throughout were very helpful. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and will begin cooking from it immediately.
I think this cookbook is very smart and put together well. Nice tips, practical applications for the every day cook to a seasoned chef. Melissa did good!
Delicious and easy recipes with step-by-step guidelines and practical tips. Love this cookbook!
I really enjoy this cookbook. It's filled with many interesting, easy recipes that have easy-to-find ingredients that are usually not very expensive. The pictures are great quality too. I got the book on sale which I think was a great bargain. The only con I might have is that I have boys that are big eaters, and I find some of her portions are a bit too small for my crew.
While this cookbook has alot of recipes in it, they are alot of recipes I would never try. There are many different catagories, but only a few recipes in each catagory. I was hoping for more chicken/meat dishes but it's mostly sides, salads and desserts. I should have saved my money and just went to foodnetwork.com.
I enjoy her TV show, and I find the cookbook a good companion. I hope it will not be the last cookbook she will produce.
This cookbook is beautiful to read. Easy, tasty receipes with alot of variety in choices of dishes. Next book needs nutritional values for those of us needing portion control.
I can not believe it took so long to receive this book. I almost cancelled the order. Improve this situation or you may loose customers.
i have seen other recipes since that were in the same time frame and would have like to see them
I love Melissa, she cooks for the real world and on a real budget. Her dishes are delicious and are easy to understand and prepare. I plan to give her new cokbook as Christmas gifts this year and I look forward to her next book. Thanks Melissa!
I ORDERED THIS PRODUCT ON THE FIRST DAY MELISSA WAS ON CHOPPED AND FOOD NETWORK HAD IT TO ORDER .THE STREET DATE CAME AND WENT NO BOOK . MELISSA WAS IN MY AREA FOR A BOOK SIGNING AND I WANTED TO BRING MY MOM TO SEE HER AND SIGN THE BOOK .DAY OF SIGNING CAME NO BOOK YET,IT CAME OVER A WEEK AND A HALF LATER VERY ,VERY DISAPPOINTED WHY WOULDN'T THIS COME FOR STREET DATE, FROM NOW ON I'LL BUY MY BOOKS IN STORES. GREAT BOOK THOUGH!!!
Love the fact that there is a variety of foods for different meals, even though our family doesn't eat a lot of the foods in the meals. Maybe I can get them try something new!!
Great, Melissa is my favorite cook on food network now. I like her variety and so many ways she presents to change up receipes,
Always looking for good inexpensive meals, when you're on a budget, its difficult sometimes, and toasted cheese and soup, just doesn't get it all the time -------
