Easy Honey Storage

I love to use honey in recipes, but it never fails that not long after I open the container of honey it crystalizes. Well, I have a great solution. When you open your honey put it into glass canning jars, that way when it crystalizes, you can just throw it in your microwave and it will be as good as new!

Yummy, Easy Salsa

I know it's been hit or miss with my posts, but I really want to get serious about being more consistent with posts, so slowly but surely I'm getting back into the groove and hopefully by the time school starts I'll be back in the swing of blogging.

It's long past time for one of my favorite recipe finds! Scott and I LOVE chips and Salsa however, Scott only likes 1 or 2 brands because he has a thing about raw tomatoes (weird because he loves salsa???) and I have a thing about mushy cooked tomatoes. It's definitely a tomato thing with both of us. Now of course nothing compares to salsa made with fresh tomatoes, but really I've been trying to grow tomatoes for the last 3 years with a yield of 2 measly tomatoes. I've read every book in our library even those by locals about how to grow great tomatoes in the desert and followed their advice to the T and still a big fat F for me. I've given up momentarily but not for good. ANYWAY, I found this recipe that uses canned tomatoes, fresh ingredients and most importantly a blender, and I'm telling you WE LOVE this salsa. It's the next best thing 2 fresh and WAY better than store bought. give it a try it's a cinch and even if you don't like spicy be sure to add the jalapeno just take out the ribs and seeds. I left it out once and it was blah! I put it in wide mouth pint jars (easy for dipping chips) and the recipe makes 2 pints. It will last about a week in the fridge however ours has never been in the fridge that long except when we were on vacation!

Easy Blender Salsa


  • 1- 14 oz can diced tomatoes(I use fire roasted tomatoes)
  • 1- 10 oz can orginal Rotel
  • 1/2 small onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and smashed
  • 1/2-1 jalapeno, seeded or not (depends on how spicy you like it)
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • small to medium size handful of cilantro, washed
  • juice of 1 lime


Put all the ingredients in the base of a food processor or good blender and pulse to combine for 30 seconds or so until all the ingredients are finely chopped and salsa is desired consistency. Taste for seasoning and adjust to taste. Serve with chips or over tacos.

The Original Recipe is from Mountain Mama Cooks

Walgreens Cottonelle Deal Coupon Clarification

You've probably all seen or heard about the Cottonelle deal at Walgeens already, but I just wanted to clarify something about the IP Cottonelle coupon. Here's the deal just in case you don't already know about it:

Cottonelle Toilet Paper $5 (regular price at Walgreens)
use $1/1 IP here
use $1/1 IVC from Walgreens July coupon book
OOP $3

I think this is a good deal and I was actually going to do the deal with the $.50/1 SS 7/6/12 coupon before I saw this IP today.

Here's what I wanted to explain about this particular type of printable coupon in case you're not familiar with this type of IP. This coupon prints like a PDF in other words if you stay on the print page and keep clicking print you can print many of these coupons, however all the coupons you print will have the same security code in the upper right hand corner and technically count as "copies" so the store will NOT be reimbursed for them. You can legitimately print 2 coupons from each computer, but after you print the first time you need to close the print page and go back to the original page and choose the coupon again. You will know if you did this correctly because the security code in the upper right hand corner will be different on each coupon. PLEASE be honest and only use coupons with different security codes it is dishonest to do otherwise and I know that we do not want to hurt the stores or the manufactureres who give us such great deals.
