Publishers Text

Dawn Welch, owner of the much-loved Rock Cafe; on historic Route 66, understands that while families' food budgets have shrunk, their expectations for great meals haven't. In Dollars to Donuts, she proves that readers can have their steak and eat it, too, through 150 recipes for tasty dishes like Paella with Spicy Sausage and Pot-Roasted Chicken with Saffron, Chickpeas, and Lemon, and decadent desserts like Chocolate-Chip Oatmeal Pie. Every recipe is annotated with cost per serving so cooks can mix and match a week's worth of stress-free meals on any budget, with plenty of dishes to choose for just pennies a serving. As a busy working mom who has learned to stretch her food dollars, Dawn offers her tips and strategies for shopping, freezing, making meals ahead, and menu planning with an appealing down home sensibility.

Whether it's The Doorbell Dash (quick entertaining when unexpected company drops by), The Big Bang Relay (featuring food to cook once and eat twice or more), Covering Your Bases (4 sauces, 16 ways to use them), or Eating Green (and saving it, too!), readers will learn how to trump any food challenge deliciously. More than a budget-friendly cookbook, Dollars to Donuts is a refreshing and upbeat resource for creating wholesome, great tasting food without sacrificing flavor, convenience, or one's bank account.
