A Fellow Couponer’s BAD Day

Have you ever had one of those days when it seems like the world is against couponers? A friend of mine shared this story with me of a fellow couponer who was shopping at a West Union, Iowa store.

Super Quick and Easy Pizza Pockets

I usually prefer to make meals from scratch, but as any person can relate, I have been busy and sometimes quick is just a whole lot simpler!!

I had a couple of questions for her just because each time I’ve done a price match there, the cashiers have all said different things. After speaking with her though, I was informed of the correct way to deal with price matching and I…

Homemade Chicken Dumpling Soup…a twist on the classic chicken noodle soup

Part of my heritage is German and this was always a favorite from my childhood. (I’m Dutch too OC people, it’s okay, breathe, breathe!)  I found a recipe that (of course isn’t as good as grandma or great-grandma’s recipe) but really seems to hit the spot. I actually found the recipe from Taste of Home. They have the best recipes…

Taco Seasoning made from scratch

I’ve gone through my fair share of taco seasoning packets; Ortega, McCormick, Taco Bell, store brand. You name it, we’ve used it in our house. There’s one major thing that drove me nuts about these pre-made seasoning packets though. It gave me the worst heartburn EVER. It was so greasy and didn’t even have that “authentic” taco taste.
