After winning season five of “The Next Food Network Star,” Melissa’s relatable cooking show “Ten Dollar Dinners” premiered on Food Network in August 2009. Melissa connects naturally to an audience tuning in for tips on family-friendly recipes as scrumptious and elegant as they are cost saving.
Her affordable meal tips come from her own personal experience. Raised by a single mother, and later becoming a mother to four daughters, Melissa teaches all of us the power of a family meal on a shoestring budget. Ten Dollar Dinners: 140 Recipes and Tips to Elevate Simple, Fresh Meals Any Night of the Week is full of fresh recipes and mouthwatering photographs, along with handy tools and information like guidelines for a robust pantry and clever mix-and-match cost-coding system for countless menu options.
Melissa is embarking upon a 20 city tour. It will be a chance to talk with Melissa and get your own signed copy of her debut book. Her recipes cover the realm from a family weekday meal to group entertaining. Find inspiration from appetizers to dessert and everything that comes in between.
