Enter for a Chance to Win an Autographed Copy of Ten Dollar Dinners

by in Books, Contests, August 14th, 2012

melissa d'arabian ten dollar dinners cookbookMelissa d’Arabian can now add another title to her long list of accomplishments: cookbook author. Her first cookbook, Ten Dollar Dinners, is officially available today and it’s packed with fresh meals — more specifically, 140 mouthwatering recipes, like Caprese Tartlets, Slow-Cooker Tortilla Soup, Grilled Two-Cheese Burgers and a Classic Apple Tart, for any night of the week.

She also includes tips to save you time and money like using leftover wine (see photo below, too). According to Melissa, “If you have a little leftover wine in a bottle, fill an ice cube tray half-full with wine and then freeze (don’t fill it all the way, it won’t freeze). The next time you need to deglaze a pan or make a quick pan sauce, toss in a few cubes for an extra layer of flavor that didn’t cost you an extra dime.”


You can order a copy right now, but we’d like to give you a chance to win one that Melissa has autographed. All you have to do is comment on this post by telling us which one of Melissa d’Arabian’s recipes is your favorite and why.

    my favorite receipe is her one for gronola, I love it and I add extra pecans too.

    As a busy grandmother who works full-time, it's hard to come up with a meal that all five of our grandchildren will eat. Melissa's Kid-Friendly Salmon and Oven Fries is one of our go-to meals. Not only do the kids enjoy helping us prepare the meal, but there's nothing but empty plates to wash when dinner is over. We always know it's a winner when the plates are empty!

    Melissa's Wine Braised Pork Tacos sound delicious – quick, affordable and full of flavor.
