One Week – Six Dinners – Just $100

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
I am a full-time university student with a part-time job. I work many jobs every summer in order to finance my way through the year. Needless to say, I am extremely budget-conscious and I was so excited by reading the title in my email: "Money-Saving Menus: Eat for a week—for less! Six budget-friendly meals you can take to the bank." I cannot even express my disappointment. I understand that perhaps $100 is cheap for a family of four (instead of my household of two), but I still think $100 could cover an entire week's food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) for a family. To put it in perspective, I spend less than $100 on groceries for the entire month and manage to have nutritious and delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day at this price. Allrecipes staff and members, I love your recipes, and I love your community. I love everything about you except for this delusion that $100 is cheap for a week's worth of dinners.

Molten Chocolate Cakes With Sugar-Coated Raspberries

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
Made this last September for my uncle's birthday. They were soooo incredibly delicious, rich and warm and melted beautifully in the mouth, we each had two (followed by tummyaches that were well worth it). AMAZING. I can't wait to make them again. Maybe for Valentine's. :)

This is my go-to for white cakes and cupcakes! Fantastic with french vanilla icing and candies or licorice on top.
