A few weeks ago I emailed Tawra Kellam to see if I could get a copy of her book, “Dining on a Dime” to review for my awesome readers. She willing obliged to my offer and sent me her book to check out!
I’ve been wanting the Dining on a Dime book for a while so I was glad to get a chance to get my hands on a copy and check it out!
I found lots of great and simple recipes that are thrifty but don’t taste thrifty! Have you ever tried to cook a thrifty meal and ended up just feeling deprived? Well this book is your solution to that! Sometimes when I try and cook a meal I’m just out of ideas and so I end up making something boring or something I’ve made a hundred times before because I couldn’t think of anything new. I love finding a new cookbook that has good recipes(that don’t have odd ingredients that are expensive and somewhere I could not begin to find in the store!) and that has simple recipes.
I don’t keep alot of variety of items on hand so it’s nice to find a cookbook that has the ingredients I have right in my pantry or freezer!
Dining on a Dime also has other thrifty tips, besides the recipes. There is a large substitution chart in the back, a chapter called Being Pretty for Pennies, and a large chapter with lots of homemade mixes and gift basket ideas!(My favorite chapter!)
For this week’s giveaway to go along with all the thrifty cooking tips we will be having, one winner will win a copy on the Dining on a Dime cookbook!
