We have made 11 meals out of the book in less than 5 weeks and LOVE every single recipe we have made. Easy and delicious.

I have given this cookbook to several young couples who have recently married as a wedding gift along with a casserole dish or some kind of kitchen item. Gooseberry Patch cookbooks always have the most delicious recipes and this one is no exception.

I received this as a birthday gift and I must say it has quickly turned into one of my favorite cookboks. Everything we have tried from this cookbook we have loved.I might also add there are very few recipes that did not appeal to us. Normallly most cookbooks seem to be hit and miss on "great" recipes but not this one. If you are looking for recipes that taste great yet are economical this is the book for you!

As soon as I received the cookbook I grabbed some paper clips and sat down to look through it. After my first run through the book I had almost 20 paper clips marking the recipes I wanted to try right away :) We tried 5 of the recipes this weekend and LOVE them all. They all use ingredients that I had or ones that are easy to pick up at the local grocery store and don't cost a fortune! The recipes are easy to read, understand and have very good instructions.
Now I need to get some more of these cookbooks!!
I would recommend them to anyone and everyone :)

I love this book because it's "Back to Basics". It has many recipes with ingredients already found in your pantry...way to go Gooseberry!!!

This book is a great investment for those wanting to save money yet still have meals that the family will love. I was highly impressed with the content in the book.
The other day I pulled out my copy of "Dinners On A Dime" and made the Cake Mix Brownies (pg. 208)...they are delicious!!! My only interjection is that it says to use a 9x13" baking pan...however, since it did not make a large amount of batter I felt using this large of a pan would make the brownies too thin. So instead, I used a smaller round baking dish (6 inch). They cooked up nice and high and were great!!! The cooking time was the same so it worked out well.I loved that it only used 4 ingredients and all of them were pantry staples.
Great book all the way around.

I just love the easy recipes I find in this cook book. Most of the recipes use ingredients I keep in the pantry year round so no running back to the store for a missing ingredient.

We often shop for cookbooks as a way to find new and exciting ways to prepare our foods but a book like "Dinners on a Dime" has quite the opposite appeal. As I read through the pages, I found myself exclaiming "Oh I remember this recipe!". I discovered the comforting old fashioned foods that I remembered enjoying at pot lucks and family gatherings through the years. There were no difficult-to-find ingredients and no expensive additions, just good, honest food.
Like having the wisdom of many mothers at my fingertips, this new cookbook from Gooseberry Patch is a wonderful resource for those of us who have a passion for not only nourishing, but nurturing their families from the warmth of their kitchens.

...that's what I like about this book of recipes!
Just paging through my new "Dinners on a Dime" cookbook, tells me that I can make a variety of good, wholesome any-day-of-the-week meals without a lot of fuss and time consumption.
Thanks Gooseberry Patch!
