Then, I came across this post from the blog[...]

arkangel318 | September 17 2014
This brand of chocolate has been available at my local Walgreen’s for some time. I’ve always been curious about them, because of the…unique…flavors, but the price has always put me off. Then one day…
FINALLY…they went on clearance! Still a bit pricey, but not too expensive for science!

Gamers gotta game, but sometimes we gotta commute to work, or sit in a waiting room or any other number of real life activities that involve us waiting in an environment far away from our consoles and pcs.

Do you ever have fruit in the fridge that is soggy or starting to go bad? Don’t throw them away! Although they might not be edible, they can still be useful for making a fragrant slow-cooker potpourri. There are many types of dried potpourri, but the low heating process of slow cooker or "shimmer[...]

X1up Girl | August 22 2014
Some days I run across something so crazy, it's actually MORE crazy if I DON'T buy it and bring it home. Hence, my latest Wal-mart $2 snack-tastrophe purchase: Jeff Foxworthy's Cheddar Cheese Grit Chips.

When I saw this in[...]
Mistress Sara’s Sweet and Sour Chicken
Mistress Sara | August 21 2014
This recipe originally came from Minute Brand Instant Brown Rice. Not sure if it was off the back of a box, or in a magazine, it was given to me by my mother-in-law. All searches online do not give me this recipe (even www.minuterice.com doesn’t list this version). It’s one of the few recipes my[...]
