Thoughts on Brandless’ $3 Organics: Are They Really A Deal?

Have you seen the Facebook ads yet for a new online grocery store called Brandless? They've taken the basics of generic organics/healthier foods that you can find at places like ALDI/Walmart and repackaged them with a minimalistic website. So how does Brandless' items compare to the ones you'd find in your local grocery store? *… Continue reading Thoughts on Brandless’ $3 Organics: Are They Really A Deal?

Need Some New Baby Food Ideas? Try Some Of These!

  I didn't like tomatoes, broccoli, avocados, and a variety of other things as a kid, which is kind of ironic now that I'm a vegetarian and love all of them. I hope my daughter will enjoy a variety of foods as well, so it's been fun to come up with new mixes and see… Continue reading Need Some New Baby Food Ideas? Try Some Of These!

Sweet Corn Salad

  Once upon a time, I attempted to grow my own vegetables on an apartment balcony. I bought dirt and containers and bell pepper seeds and a watering can, then patiently waited all summer for a bell pepper to appear. One. One pepper grew out of all of those seeds. It was the world's most… Continue reading Sweet Corn Salad

A Month’s Worth Of Dinners

I usually throw away last week's meal plan (which I am rethinking since it's hard to come up with meal ideas sometimes), but I decided to keep last month's meal ideas in case you need some new ones! I typically eat leftovers or sandwiches for lunch and a frozen pizza once or twice a week for dinner, so… Continue reading A Month’s Worth Of Dinners

Sweet Corn Enchiladas

    The secret to these is the Corn and Chile salsa from Trader Joe's. It's a little sweet, a little spicy, and very addictive. If you don't have a Trader Joe's nearby, subsitute a can of drained sweet corn, but consider taking a road trip to stock up on the Trader Joe's version :).  … Continue reading Sweet Corn Enchiladas

Ute’s Stuffed Mushrooms

"May I help you?" Her voice sounded so familiar that I had to do a double take. I told her thanks, I was just browsing; we talked about where the clearance section was. I was curious though so I had to ask: "Where are you from originally?" Then it made sense why the store associate sounded exactly… Continue reading Ute’s Stuffed Mushrooms

Why You Can’t Afford Not To Coupon

I loved seeing the amazing deals that people got on the TV show Extreme Couponing- they saved hundreds of dollars each month with their strategies, usually 90-95% on each of their (massive) shopping trips. But after watching this show I usually came away with the thought of "that's awesome, but not something I can do."… Continue reading Why You Can’t Afford Not To Coupon

The Easiest Way To Plan Meals

I love the idea of having a pretty chalkboard in my kitchen with all my meals for the week written in beautiful cursive script. Or maybe they're written on a fun dry erase board calendar, color coded by meal category or day. Problem is, I don't have the wall space, fridge space, or patience for… Continue reading The Easiest Way To Plan Meals
