One of my proudest couponing moments (before we switched to real food, and obviously before I quit couponing) was buying boxed cake mix for 25¢ each. I stacked e-coupons with paper coupons on top of a great sale and filled two cabinets with all sorts of flavors. Then I remember the day when I cleanedClick to Continue »
Am I the only one who has been a baking fool this year? I’ve made at least a dozen different sweets in the past two weeks alone… the cut-out sugar cookies and candy cane cookies I shared recently are only a drop in the bucket.

I know what you’re probably thinking… “Two bean posts in one week?! Doesn’t she eat anything else?” We definitely do – the homemade chicken nuggets and slow cooker pot roast from a couple weeks ago are case in point.
