Extreme Couponing

I don’t know if you’ve seen this new series called Extreme Couponing on TLC. It profiles people who spend up to 40 hours a week clipping coupons, researching online for their stores deals, shopping at different stores to get different deals. I wanted to watch it because I love reality TV and I was curious…

Taco Soup

It’s been probably a year since I’ve made this soup and I don’t know why – it’s always so good and I love having it for my lunches at work. Make one batch of this soup and you don’t have to worry about making a lunch – quick and cheap! You can make variations of…

Biggest Loser re-cap – season finale

Last week I wanted Olivia to win the whole thing, and I got my wish! She’s the newest season winner (and 250k richer!) with her sister Hannah coming in a very close second place. Last week we saw Olivia and Hannah claim the top 2 spots, America had to vote between Jay and Irene. I…

Macaroni and cheese for one

I love macaroni and cheese – and I make it at least a few times a month. It’s quick and easy and my whole family loves it – especially my daughter Claire :). One morning last week when I was thinking about what to make for breakfast to bring to work, I got an idea…

Microwave Muffin – Biggest Loser recap

I saw this recipe on another girl’s blog and I wrote her site down wrong – so I can’t give proper credit. :(. All I know is that she comments on my twin sister’s blog – so if you posted this recipe recently – please speak up 🙂 Basically, all you have to do, is…

I’m goin’ campin’!

That’s girl scout camp 🙂 Claire and I leave tomorrow morning and come back Sunday afternoon – we’ll be in Michigan (thankfully staying in cabins – no tents!) I went last year and we had such a great time. The place where we stayed was about a 10 minute walk to the dunes. The girls…

Deluxe dinner in @ 15 minutes? Yes please!

We have been SUPER busy around out house with end of the school year stuff, softball practices and games, it’s been crazy. I am SO looking forward to when the kids are done with school this year – how about you? I actually started the dish with Turkey Kielbasa I got at Trader Joe’s. For…

Banana Chocolate Muffins

This recipe is my version of a recipe I saw on my friend Celine’s site Have Cake will Travel Banana Chocolate Muffins. I changed a few things. I didn’t have chocolate chips, so I subbed Ovaltine. I actually made these for the first time at the beginning of my blog way back in April of…

Crisis Averted!

I had one of those days yesterday where I was thinking about eating something that I knew wasn’t going to be good for me, but for whatever reason I couldn’t get it out of my head. What was it? A chocolate milkshake! There is an icecream shop around the corner from my office. It was…

My new favorite breakfast and Biggest Loser recap

I have a new favorite breakfast that I’ve made the last few mornings that I could eat pretty much every day and not get tired of it. What is it? It’s 3 small potatoes, with the skin on, 1 leftover Chicken sausage from Trader Joe’s, sliced, sliced yellow pepper, a handful of edamame and 1…
