Wednesday Catch:Coupon and Recipe Combo

24 Mar

This past Sunday while I was cutting out coupons I saw a coupon with a recipe attached. This coupon with recipe idea isn’t new I see one or two every Sunday but last week this coupon+ recipe combo was more than ever before.  I actually think that in the whole cutting coupon frenzy I missed of few of those combos. Here’s what I managed to get:

Reynolds Oven Bags Traditional Holiday Ham
Marzetti Salad Dressing Blue Cheese Spring Salad
Argo or Kingsford’s Corn starch 1 Dish Raspberry Cheesecake
French’s Mustard Tangy Ranch Chicke

There were also two combo coupons:

COUPON                         RECIPE
Carnation Milk             Nestle Very Best                                                      Fudge
Toll House Morsels
Jello Pudding              Angel Lush
Dole Pineapple            with Pineapple

Do you like this coupon recipe idea? Or does it just get in the way of the coupon you want? As for myself I like the idea but sometimes I end up clipping out the recipe and forgetting about the coupon.

Wednesday Catch: Chocolate

24 Feb

Today, almost a week since my terrible cold I’m feeling much better but still my taste buds are lacking but it doesn’t mean I can’t look and blog about foods I love.

Today’s Wednesday Catch is…Chocolate. I LOVE chocolate as do so many people.  “According to a 2006 John Hopkins study it showed that eating chocolate everyday can be beneficial to your health.”  So eat up!

Here are a few chocolate sites to check out:

I can go on and on but I’ll leave it for another day.

Wednesday Catch: Paris

10 Feb

Today is the Wednesday Catch but before I get into that I must say that I’m in the middle of a blizzard. I went out for a few minutes and could not see a street block in front of me. There’s that much snow falling. To all those that need to be out today, be careful, take your time, walk and drive slowly.

So, I stumbled upon a blog that had to do with travels and food in Paris.  I always thought it would be nice to go to Paris but now I really feel that I need to save money and make it happen. I don’t care if I eat fast food and take pictures of beautifully prepared food and pastries all day. So here are a few of the sites I’ve come across:

Red Velvet Wednesday Catch

27 Jan

Today’s Catch is CAKE. But not just any cake but, Red Velvet Cake. I’ve had a few of these cakes some good and some not. The trick with this cake is the frosting. The cream cheese frosting is the one that makes it better or worse. I had a really good piece of Red velvet cake from Magnolia Bakery NYC.  Magnolia always has  lines outside the door so be prepared to wait.

Maybe I’ll try to make Red Velvet Cake for Valentine’s Day.
