The $5 Dinner Mom Cookbook, by Erin Chase, gets a huge thumbs-up!
-The frugal tips on each recipe page.
-The easy and delicious recipes.
-The cost per use for each ingredient (pretty much on target—but see below under “Caution”).
-The tutorial for setting up a coupon binder (what a difference it makes for coupon. clippers—you can actually see what you have and when each coupon expires!).
-The excellent recipe for oven French fries—kids absolutely love the taste.
-Great overview on how to use coupons the right way.
-Her down-to-earth and easy-to-read writing.
-It’s a small issue—but author Erin Chase lives in Dayton, Ohio, where food prices are lower than they are in Fairfield, CT.
