Homemade Italian and Thousand Island Dressings

Yesterday was condiment making day. My family loves Thousand Island and Italian salad dressings. I am tired of running out of dressing and spending extra money so that it's gluten free.(Kraft says they get their spices from a supplier that can not say they are gluten free).I got this book from the library and made these two. They were easy and delicious. Instead of sugar in the recipe I used honey. I filled a leftover glass dressing bottle with the Italian and a recycled mayo bottle for the Thousand Islands. Next one I want to make is Ranch. Click on the picture of the recipe to make it larger if you can't see it.

Magazines Without the Clutter

Do you enjoy reading magazines but prefer not to have the clutter? I don't enjoy the big pile of magazines and so a perfect solution is Zinio. Zinio is a way to get magazines delivered to your computer, tablet or phone. Suddenly while you are waiting in the doctor's office you can read magazines that you enjoy! Right now they are offering a bunch of magazines for $5/ year. So, now you not only don't have the clutter of magazines but you don't have the expense!Family Circle costs $6.19 for 12 issues for Canadians. Every Day with Rachel Ray costs $6.19 for 10 issues for Canadians.When you are done reading them you just delete them off your device. You can restore them at anytime too! How do you feel about reading your favorite magazines in digital format?

Instagram in Review

I am really enjoying the Instagram app! It is a quick easy way for me to share deals with you....whether it's a flyer deal that caught my eye, or an in store deal. It can be downloaded here.Here's some things I posted this week. The first one starts tomorrow April 11th!

New Money Saving App.....Zweet

There's a new money saving app! It's called ZWEET. It's only available for apple right now. You can download it here. It works just like Checkout 51 and Snap Save and Cart Smart. You need to get to $20 to cash out just like with Checkout 51 and Snap Save. The thing I love about these apps is that they are starting to have more fresh fruit and vegetable offers! It's another way to help you save on groceries!

Scratch Microwave Chocolate Pudding

I have lots of milk! For those of you that are following the Instagram posts....I couldn't resist the milk! $2.59 for 4L!!! So, I thought I should make some pudding. This recipe is so easy and so quick!

 Chocolate Pudding
 3 Tbsp Corn Starch
 1/3 cup cocoa
 1/3 cup sugar
2 cups milk
 Whisk all the dry together. Whisk in milk. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Whisk. Cook on high in 1 minute increments until thick. Cover with a piece of plastic wrap right on the pudding to keep it from forming a skin. Cool. Serve with whip cream....Yum.
