One Pot Pasta

I’ve been making this One Pot Pasta dish for several years.  I love this recipe because it goes together quickly for an easy weeknight meal, and the clean-up couldn’t be easier – we’re talking a single pot!  It also gets high marks from the entire family (believe me this is a rare occurrence!).   I […]

Monday Menus – June 30, 2014

Why do the weekends always seem to fly by??  Is anyone else (getting sucked into) watching World Cup Soccer?  The matches this weekend were stellar!  I’m currently up to my elbows in cherries – I got a case from my co-op over the weekend.  While I hate pitting cherries (16 lbs.!), it’s definitely worth the […]

BOUNTIFUL BASKETS CO-OP (PART ONE) – SAVING ON PRODUCE

When I first started using coupons, I was disappointed at how difficult it was to find good deals on fresh produce. With the exception of an occasional coupon, the best way for me to maximize my grocery dollars was to purchase produce on sale. Purchasing sale produce is generally a good idea, as it tends […]

MONDAY MENUS – JUNE 23, 2014

How was your weekend?  We went to the Strawberry Days Festival on Saturday night.  It was fun to check out all the vendor booths, and we also enjoyed a nutritious (NOT!) dinner of gyros, corn dogs & lemonade shakeups.  And who can pass up the funnel cake for dessert, right?  Thank goodness it’s a once […]
