National Donut Day: I need gluten-free donuts

Friday is National Donut Day, and there are all sorts of free donuts being given away at various places.  As a matter of fact, the reps from the Butler County Donut Trail are supposed to be dropping off donuts for me as a thank-you for promoting the Donut Trail on Columbus on the Cheap.  I […]

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies: 1 dough, 5 ways

I used to love making a bunch of different Christmas cookies…trying new recipes each year and making my favorites.  Then I had Jenson and that got more difficult, but I still managed quite a variety.  And then I had Marlowe, and two days before Christmas I’ve only made 2 recipes so far.  Baking with a […]

Review: Jose Cuervo Margaritas in a can

I love margaritas.  A lot.  But I don’t like just any margarita…  I’m kind of picky and prefer higher end ones – rocks and salt, please.  The premade ones aren’t that great (I mean, I probably won’t turn one down), but when I saw these Jose Cuervo Margaritas in a can, I couldn’t pass them […]

liveGfree Southwest Vegetarian Tamale Bites Review

A couple of months ago I bought the liveGfree Southwest Vegetarian Tamale Bites at Aldi’s when they were on special.  I didn’t try them until last month when I was looking for a quick lunch to make while Jenson napped.  I was at the point in my pregnancy when I wasn’t sick anymore, and when […]

Apple Gouda Chicken Sausage and Corn Risotto
