The purpose of What’s For Dinner? is to provide you a recipe with items on sale this week, with no more than 10 ingredients (not including pantry items), and coming in at under $10 per meal.

So all that stuff above – on sale….ingredients…$10…..


Sometimes you taste something SO yummy that you just throw all your frugal caution to the wind and buy all the ingredients – because you need to have it NOW.

And I tasted that something yesterday.

I was at my Building Better Moms meeting (which is like MOPS except that half the mom’s don’t have pre-schoolers and half the meeting is about eating really good food) yesterday and my friend Meredith, who is also a loyal reader, made the best-apple-dumpling-dish-I-have-ever-eaten in my entire life.

And then when she told me the ingredient – it has Mountain Dew in it.

And something this yummy and with freaky weird ingredients deserves to be made right away.

So I’m sharing the recipe with all you – so that you can fall off the frugal (and diet) wagon with me with this dessert.

Warning: If you have never been on Pioneer Woman’s site – you might want to make sure you have a cup of coffee and two hours to spare before you click on the link.  Her site is seriously that addictive.

    Love it Kelly! I’m making another batch for the family – gotta finish off that 2-ltr bottle of Mountain Dew!

    Wow, and double WOW! This WAS good! I don’t even want to know the calories – 2 sticks of butter – that recipe would make Paula Deen very proud! Thanks for sharing – this one is going into the 3 ring binder of recipes to pass on to the kiddo’s~!
