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.

  • MOST HELPFUL REVIEWS

  • Not practical for the simple guy!

    I enjoy watching Malissa so much on the Food network. So much of what she prepares seems very practical. I must admit, I was somewhat disappointed with her 1st recipe book. I thought it would be filled with the practical and simple recipes that she prepares on her show. Instead, it seems to me that many of the recipes are elaborate and sophisticated, not made for the average amateur cook like myself. That's just my opinion!

  • One Problem

    I love all the budget friendly recipes. The finished product photos are great and I enjoy the family photos also. The price was incredible for a cookbook. My only disappointment, which is huge to me, is that the recipes do not contain the nutritional information I need to follow my diet restrictions. With this information on everything you buy I was surprised and disappointed that it was not listed for the recipes.

    I recommend this product.

  • More of my thoughts

    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.

    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.

  • Salads and soups

    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!

  • Anyone can cook.

    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.

    I recommend this product.
