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 enjoyed her tips and hints in the cookbook. I have taken up the challenge of saving as much money as I can when planning our meals. Who knew it could be so fun! The inclusion of recipes from her travel experiences is especially brilliant! I have two young kids at home and miss traveling. The recipes are easy to replicate.
The book was an easy read...simple, fun and interesting recipes that didn't break the budget. Loved the family photos included...felt like Melissa brought you into her world to share some great food! Melissa's brief explanations at the start of most recipes made the recipes spring to life and made you want to try them! In just a short time, Melissa's cookbook has become one of my favorites in my collection. Look forward to trying many of her wonderful recipes. Thanks Melissa and co-writer, and thanks Food Network!
I love the tips section & how every recipe opens with a personal story. I only wish Melissa was Looking at the camera.
I had been waiting impatiently for Melissa's first cookbook, and what a gem it is! When it was offered at such a great price, with free shipping, I figured it would be a small item with just a few recipes. When it arrived it was a big surprise. It had a lot ofngreat recipes, great pictures, lots of good ideas. I I'll be using this a lot. I have already ordered another as a gift. Ruth Harthun
