I have thought about selling this product off and on for some time now. I just love their products(at least all the ones I've tried)! I just have to figure out how to do childcare for my kids, and who will book the first 5 parties(my personal goal to get started)! Now I haven't signed up yet b/c I wanted to get a feel from my readers on the subject. Plus I need to run the idea past hubby since it cost money to get started! I'll keep you updated!

My Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Ok, I have to admit I'm not much of a baker! I usually mess up almost every handmade recipe I try in some way or another! But this bread was a HUGE success :D !

Yes I know what you're thinking.....Is there already pieces missing? So I wanted to try it before I thought to take a picture of my wonderful creation! What are you going to do about it? :-) Go to Betty Crocker's Site for this delicious recipe! $25 Certificates for ONLY $2! has a new 80% off promotional code:
Take 80% off of $25 Gift Certificates and pay ONLY $2!
Just use promo code INDULGE thru 1/19!

For a total of just $2, you’ll end up getting a $25 gift certificate! I always stock up on certificates when they are 80% off. They don’t expire for a year after purchasing, so you’ll definitely have lots of time to make use of them.
Or for an even better deal, you can purchase the Dinner of the Month Club. What’s that? It’s a 12 month package that comes with 12 $25 gift certificates and one FREE $50 gift certificate! The total for this package would be $120, but after you type in promo code INDULGE—your total will drop down to just $24! Wahoo! That means you’re snagging $350 worth of dining certificates for ONLY $24!
If your unfamiliar with how works, then be sure to check out this post! You may also want to read through the comments on this post if you still have questions.

Is Non-stick Stuff Sticking to Us?

This is an interesting article I found through the 7Gen email newsletter:
Cast Iron CookwareHere's a serving of culinary irony to go with your holiday leftovers: Non-stick cookware, which helps us avoid unhealthy fats when we cook, may actually raise our cholesterol levels. At least that's what a new study from Boston University's School of Public Health suggests. Researchers found that people with higher levels of non-stick polyfluoroalkyl chemicals (PFCs) in their bloodstreams also had higher levels of non-HDL ("bad") cholesterol.
This is a prime example of why (forgive the pun) it's always wise to stick to the Precautionary Principle. Because until we know something for sure, we really don't know anything at all.
There's been a simmering suspicion that PFCs are up to no good. Previous studies, for example, found a correlation between very high PFC levels in the body (like those found in PFC workers) and higher cholesterol. But this study is different: it's a general population study that hints that far lower levels of PFCs, like those found in regular folk, might also affect cholesterol.
The key word there is "hints," and it means that we have to take the study itself with a dose of precaution. It's a preliminary finding that identifies an association between PFC exposure and higher cholesterol but hardly proves direct cause-and-effect. There could be something else at work here, something unrelated to PFCs.
We just don't know. And until we do, precaution is advised. What does that mean? Well, first be aware that some of the PFCs in the BU study have been phased out. They persist in our bodies and the environment, but they're not being made anymore. Still, many PFCs and related chemicals remain in production, and one of these was linked to higher cholesterol in the BU study. There's also a fear that both the chemical replacements for the phased-out PFCs and those that remained in production simply break down into the banned chemicals as they age.
Until science gives us the all-clear, we should keep PFCs at arm's length. What does that mean? For starters, consider replacing your non-stick cookware with cast iron. Trust me -- once it's seasoned, it works like a charm. Try to cut out microwave popcorn and processed and fast foods, especially greasy types -- their packaging is typically coated with PFCs to prevent soak-throughs. Don't use glossy paper plates. And remember that the best defense is a good offense. Click here to learn more about PFCs and stay informed!

Create Your Own Savings Plan

* Eat out (or get takeout) only rarely. That tactic may seem severe, but it’s a quick way to streamline food costs.
* Be strict about sticking to your grocery list. People who avoid impulsive shopping spend up to 23 percent less on grocery bills.
* Skip pricey sports drinks and sodas. Replace them with water from the tap.
* Cut your meat. Any recipe calling for a pound of ground meat can be substituted with 13 to 14 ounces.
* Buy more fruits and vegetables. Research shows that when you bulk up on produce, you eat less of other foods (and cut food budgets by up to 25 percent).
* Opt for frozen seafood over fresh. Vacuum-packaged salmon, flounder, and tilapia fillets and bags of frozen shrimp cost 20 to 40 percent less than their counterparts at the fish counter.
* Don’t buy nongrocery items at the supermarket. Health and beauty goods are usually cheaper at mass-market retailers, like Target. And you’ll find the best deals on paper products at warehouse clubs.
* Purchase oranges, onions, and potatoes in bags rather than individually. You’ll pay roughly half the price.
* Skip buying expensive prepackaged foods; take a minute or two to wash your own greens and cut your own fruit.
*Join a food co-op. Find one near you at
* Shop outlets for baked goods. Entenmann’s, Arnold, and Boboli offer discounts of up to 50 percent off (search for locations).

Opening your cabinets can send an avalanche of lids toppling down on you. Solve the problem by placing lids in boxes with dividers. Place the boxes inside the cabinets and open doors without fear.

Ok, so I'm organizing obsessed, but this is such a great idea! I just hate putting up pot lids. If you moved just one thing from under my cabinets the lids just go everywhere!
