Snapware Glasslock Containers

Here is a picture of the containers I was telling you about in my post about Make-Ahead-Meals. I highly recommend them! They are great because they can go from the freezer, to the microwave, to the oven! The lids are great too, since they snap so tightly. I found these at Costco about 3 months ago for around $20-22 (with a coupon). If they still carry them, I think they retail for around $30.



Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend making memories with your families!

Strawberry Picking (Part 2) and Strawberry Pie!



My family and I are so excited about the strawberry picking season that is in full swing here in Delaware! You can read about our first u-pick adventure at Filasky's here on my family blog. This local farm is open from about 7 am each morning until 7 pm each night and if the weather stays just right, we have about 6-7 weeks left according to the guy I talked to last week. The boys and me and some friends went back this past Friday and the strawberries were even sweeter and better than the week before. I got about 5 pounds at $1.85/pound. They are a little cheaper at the Giant this week ($1.66/pound) and Walmart, but you can't beat picking them yourself, making memories with your children, and supporting the local farm. I consider it money well spent. I have frozen most of them for using in smoothies and one of my favorite desserts, strawberry pretzel salad!



I was so excited though to try to make a version of the classic Eat N Park Restaurant Strawberry Pie. (A favorite for the Pittsburgh, PA folks!) My friend and I decided we would do it together that afternoon while the kids played. I found this recipe and I think it turned out great! It was soo delicious! I bet it cost me about $3-4 at the most to make.

Here are some pictures of some of the steps in the recipe:


Half of the berries arrange in the pie shell.



Mashing the second half of the berries.




The strawberry/sugar mixture and the cornstarch mixture.


After pouring the glaze over the strawberries.



After being chilled (not long enough) with yummy cream! It was sooo good!


Strawberry Pie II (Allrecipes.com)

1 9 inch pie crust, baked (I used a deep dish and would recommend that)
1 quart (4 cups) fresh strawberries
1 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
3/4 cup water
1/2 heavy whipping cream (I just used regular whipped cream)

1. Arrange half of the strawberries in a baked pastry shell. Mash remaining berries and combine with sugar in a medium saucepan. Place saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil, stirring frequently.
2. In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water. Gradually stir cornstarch mixture into boiling strawberry mixture. Reduce heat and simmer mixture until thickened, about 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour mixture over berries in pastry shell. Chill for several hours before serving. In a small bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form. Serve each slice of chilled pie with a dollop of whipped cream.

My tips for success:
  • Though I wasn't planning to use it, the 9-inch deep dish pie shell worked great as there were a lot of strawberries and strawberry mixture. I think it would overflow more easily in a regular pie shell.
  • I did use whole strawberries as shown in the picture, but I think I may slice them at least in half next time to making it a little easier for the kids to eat.
  • Make sure you chill it for at least 3-4 hours. I was so excited to eat it, that after about 2 hours, I cut into it and it wasn't solidified enough. Oooppps!

Health Alert: Pesticides linked to ADHD

So, did you hear about this is the news last week? A study just came out saying that pesticides are being linked to ADHD in children. If you didn't see the news or read about it online, you can check out an article here on MSNBC. My husband and I were very concerned after listening to the report, especially because detectable concentrations were found in 28% of the frozen blueberries tested. We love frozen blueberries, especially the ones we get at Costco (Wyman's Wild Blueberries--from Maine). We, and our children, eat them a lot (in smoothies, pancakes, desserts, on cottage cheese). Wild blueberries from Maine are the best in the world--at least I think so...I have even picked and eaten them from the sides of the mountains there!

I was wondering, are my kids going to have ADHA (probably like many parents who heard this last week)? I know my kids are ultimately in God's hands, but there are things we can do to protect them from harm. I decided to contact Wyman's and ask them some questions. It looks like we are ok to continue to eat frozen WILD blueberries and give them to our children without concern. I was pleased to have heard from them right away.

Well, I tried to copy and past their response, but its not working. If you want to read it, let me know and I can send it to you. Apparently, the blueberries that were tested were "cultivated, high bush" ones, and these are different from "low-bush wild ones." They are grown and harvested differently. The Wyman company claims to use very safe practices when using pesticides and they only use them selectively and only when completely necessary.



If you are concerned about pesticides, I recommend you buy some organic and/or from your local farms. And be sure to thoroughly wash all your fruits and veggies (even the ones that say pre-washed and the frozen ones). Here's a list of fruits and veggies and whether you should get organic or not.

Freezer Cooking/Make Ahead Meals Part 2

A friend left a comment on my first post about make ahead meals and she asked the following questions:

"I had never made a meal to freeze before and didn't known the logistics...like are you supposed to cook it first? and do you just take it out of the freezer and cook or reheat in the oven? "

I will try my best to provide some more details on how I do my make-ahead-meals for the freezer. If any of you have any more questions and/or your own tips, please leave a comment for all of us.

For each meal that I make to put in the freezer, I do cook the ingredients and assemble the dish ahead of time, but I don't bake it. For example, when making baked ziti, or any pasta dish, I brown the meat with onions and garlic and add the sauce, cook the pasta, and arrange in a freezer safe baking dish or container, then mix in some mozzarella cheese and Parmesan. I do not bake it. I then cover it very tightly with aluminum foil and freeze. When it is time to bake, I will either pull it out the day before and begin thawing in the refrigerator or if its last minute, I will thaw in the sink with warm water or place in microwave to defrost (if the baking dish can be put in there). Once it is thawed, I bake accordingly, sometimes adding a little more cheese on top. Even if its not completely thawed, you should be fine to bake it, it just may take a little longer. I have done lasagna before too and I have actually put a frozen one in the oven, however it takes almost 2 hours to bake. Make sure it is very hot and completely heated all the way through!

One thing I had concerns about was if I had frozen meat, say chicken, can I defrost it and cook it for a casserole, and then freeze the casserole. And I have found out, yes you can, and there are no health risks. Its when you have raw meat that was frozen, and you thaw, and then don't cook all of it, that you don't want to refreeze that remaining raw meat. There is a higher risk of bacteria contamination. (Disclaimer-this info. is not researched, just from my scientist husband. We do not claim to be experts on the subject). We have not had any problems cooking our meat that was once frozen and then mixing it with all the other ingredients for a meal, and then freezing again.

For my meals like sloppy joes, pulled pork, turkey burgers, black bean burgers, I prepare these all ahead of time, cook them, and then freeze. At Costco, I have found these wonderful heavy-duty glass dishes that are microwave, oven, and freezer safe. They come with nice lids too. The lids can't go in the microwave or oven. I will try to post information on these sometime in the near future. For my burgers, I wrap each one in some plastic wrap, then place 2-4 in a Ziploc freezer bag to prevent freezer burn. Then I can pull these types of things out of the freezer, pop in microwave to defrost and then heat. Sometimes, I will put the sloppy joes or pulled pork into a sauce pan/skillet and heat up on the stove top.

I make pancakes ahead of time and then place 4-6 in a Ziploc quart size bag and freeze. These are great to then pull out and heat up in the toaster. I made a triple batch on Friday of the whole grain ones and now we have a bunch in the freezer to use for breakfasts. Like I mentioned in my first post, I have had great success making chocolate chip cookies ahead of time and freezing them. I have never frozen the dough, though I know people who have.

For my wheat pizza dough (which I have nearly perfected after a year now of making), I mix the ingredients, knead it accordingly, and spray a Ziploc bag with cooking spray, and place the ball of dough in there and freeze. When I want to make it, I defrost for 24 hours in the refrigerator, then place in large bowl, cover, and then let it rise in the oven (not on), for 45-60 minutes. Then I roll the dough out and make it according to the directions. (I will be doing a post about my homemade pizza again soon for those of you interested--its delicious!) Some people have told me they let theirs rise before freezing and have had success, but that is not what I do. Any thoughts?

I hope this is helpful information for any of you who are interested or new to freezer cooking. If any of you have experience, please leave your tips and/or suggestions in the comments section. Oh, if you like my blog, you can become a follower by clicking the link on the home page. Happy cooking!

Acme Trip: $18.59 OOP....85% Savings!

Well, I just got back from another late night trip to Acme. Actually, its been awhile, since I've done a trip like this. Thankfully, all 4 of my transactions were planned out, and all my deals worked out perfectly. Did you read my title? I only spent $18.59 for all of that! Looking over the receipts fairly quickly, I think the total for all this stuff would have been about $117 or something like that. I know, some of you must be cringing as you are looking at the 13 boxes of cereal and 28 Yoplait yogurts, but oh, well. We love yogurt (stay tuned as I am now going to be trying Milk Kefir/Yogurt and possibly trying to make my own real yogurt) and we do the not-so-healthy cereal thing every so often. Just this past weekend, we had house guests and my husband asked them what they wanted for breakfast. They said cereal (little did they all know I already had their breakfast planned), and I was a little embarassed to tell them I didn't have any cereal in the house--except some crumbs left in the Cheerios box. Thankfully, they were happy with what I did have for them.

Lucky me, this is THE week (well, not really, there are always sales), to stock up on cereal and yogurt at Acme. Thanks to Mindi at, Moms Need to Know, and looking over the circular myself, I got all the coupon match-ups and deals that worked for us. And I got a few odds and ends that we needed. For those of you interested in hitting the $5 Catalina deal with $20 General Mills products purchase, you'll be happy to know that I got another $2 Catalina for buying the Yoplait yogurt. I was very happy about that!

I'm not going to go over all the details of my transactions, but if you do have any questions, let me know. People often ask me how much time to I spent couponing and planning my trips, and is it really worth it. Of course its worth it! Hands down--its worth it! I probably spend 1-2 hours at the most over the course of a week (not all weeks) researching, planning, clipping, printing, etc., and the savings in money is huge!!!! There are SOOOO many blogs out there that do all the hard work for you. It is all at our fingertips, if you're willing to look. I have about 4-5 blogs that deal with saving and thrifty shopping/living that I check when its time to go shopping. For example, the one I mentioned above, I only check when I am looking to go to Acme because I know all the good coupon match-ups will be listed. So, for example, I looked over the Acme circular over the weekend and began my plan because we were out of cereal and getting low on yogurt (knowing there were great Catalina deals for this week). I then looked over Mindi's blog post, and made sure I had all the coupons I needed and printed any additional ones. I sat down with my calculator and planned out each transaction to maximize the deals in order to have the lowest OOP scenarios. I knew I would roll each Catalina I received tonight into the next transaction. It worked great, no beeping or manager over-rides. I did feel bad because there was an older couple behind me waiting for awhile. But I apologized that I took so long and they were very kind and understanding. I am making it more of a habit to do these kinds of involved trips without the boys. So much easier and everybody is happier.

Have fun shopping! I am looking forward to some happy boys tomorrow when they see the "fun" cereal I got...I still can't believe it...13 boxes! They are not all bad and hopefully if I have any house guests in the next couple of months, we'll still have some!

Freezer Cooking/Make-Ahead-Meals

You know I am always trying to find ways to shave my grocery budget. I'm sure many of you have heard of freezer cooking and have followed various blogs out there promoting the subject. I wanted to share my experience with freezer cooking or make-ahead-meals. Who hasn't had some extra meals in the freezer (i.e. leftovers, extra meals for when the new baby arrives, etc.)? Isn't it great, when 5:00 rolls around faster than you expected, and dinner plans hadn't crossed your mind yet, to be able to grab a meal from the freezer (rather than ordering out). If you have had one or two meals on hand in the past and enjoyed it, why not make it a regular thing? I really believe anyone can take advantage of this method of meal planning and prepping and reap the benefits of saving time and money in the long run (and the joy of being able to bless others). It really doesn't have to be that difficult or time consuming if you have some resources on hand, a little bit of time, and some creativity (I love to experiment with recipes). Oh, and I guess freezer space is important!

I was inspired to do more make-ahead-meals after reading about it over the past year on several blogs and then getting some tips from some local friends. I have been purposefully making meals for my freezer for about three months now and am loving it. Unfortunately, I am not like some of the moms out there who dedicate a whole day or two and make their meals for an entire month. That is great that they can accomplish that. I don't have anyone in the area to take care of my kids for that length of time and I don't want to use the time my husband is home to be locked in the kitchen while he watches the boys.

So what do I do to fill my freezer with yummy meals? When I make a certain freezer friendly meal (and I have enough ingredients on hand) I go ahead and double, triple, and even quadruple the recipe. We eat the given meal that particular evening and then I freeze all the other meals. Or, if I am using some similar ingredients (i.e. ground beef or turkey, celery, onions, garlic), I will go ahead and make two different meals at the same time, freezing the one we didn't eat. I did this with two recipes from the Deceptively Delicious cookbook that had some of the same ingredients. If I'm spending time 30-60 minutes in the kitchen, I want to be as productive as possible. For example, if a recipe calls for sauteed garlic and onions (and some times celery) and some sort of ground meat, I can double or triple this and make a baked pasta dish along with my Turkey Meatloaf (I usually always yield two of these). If I am going to go ahead and clean, chop, steam, and puree veggies, I might as well do a whole bunch at a time. This helps me make more meals and use up the ingredients that may get wasted. Any its easier to have all the supplies out once, make one mess, and get a lot of veggie prep work out of the way. For example, I buy a huge bag of broccoli from Costco. I might as well, steam a whole pot, and then use some for 2-3 batches of a chicken and broccoli casserole or broccoli quiche and then purree the rest (to be frozen), so I don't end up wasting it. If I am going to make pizza dough, why not triple it!

I'm the type of person who has a pretty stocked up refrigerator, freezer, and pantry since I do a lot of bulk shopping. This really helps when I want to pull off my freezer cooking times. You may or may not have that same experience. I'm sharing what works for me.

As of last week, I had about 15 main dishes in my freezer, about 45 Energy Bars, 2 batches of cookies, some muffins, a loaf of pumpkin chocolate chip bread, and a ton of veggie purees stocked up for future recipes (I do a lot of recipes from the Deceptively Delicious and Sneaky Chef cookbooks) and for baby food. That's a great feeling. If I were to get ill, I know my family would be set for awhile. Yes, you do need extra freezer space. I am thankful, we have an extra freezer in our in-law suite that is not being used by anyone other than me right now. I seem to be using the meals as needed since I am naturally program to "cook a meal every night." Though, I am trying to plan to use 1-2 a week along with my regular cooking that then adds more to my stock-pile. It has been so nice having the option, when my "meal-plan" falls through on a particular day. For example, this past Saturday, was a very busy day (I had to work and it was my birthday) and when dinner time rolled around we ended up just pulling out one of my meals. It was a huge blessing. We were tempted to pack up the kids and go out (at 6:30), but instead, decided we would stay in, eat a nice meal together, enjoy my birthday cake, and then go out on Mother's Day (to a place I had a coupon for!)

Benefits or Make-Ahead-Meals:
1. Saving money in the long run--not tempted to order out if I am having a tough day, using up ingredients that may get wasted, stock up on staple ingredients when they are on sale, don't have to buy baby food
2. Saving time--I don't have to cook every night.
3. Eating well--my meals are wholesome and healthy, not a lot of prepackaged stuff.
4. Bless others--I have been able to provide meals to others last minute who had a need, makes hospitality even easier
5. Desserts-Its fun having some goodies in the freezer for after-meal-treats
6. Purees-I have a lot more veggie options at my finger tips
7. I love having pizza night and not ordering out, especially on caregroup nights! I host a meetings twice a month and cooking is usually not on my to-do list that day, so having my yummy pizza dough ready makes dinner a snap!
8. Don't have as many messes in my kitchen to clean up on a daily basis.


Meals that have worked well in my freezer (several of these recipes are from the Deceptively Delicious cookbook and the Sneaky Chef cookbook--these links aren't for the recipes, just info on the cookbooks):
3. Spaghetti sauce
4. Bolognese sauce (DD)
5. Turkey meatloaf (DD) (any kind of meatloaf for that matter)
6. Pulled Pork
7. Turkey burgers (DD)
8. Chicken and veggie Primavera (found this recipe in the AllYou magazine)
9. Chicken Tetrazinni
10. Quiche (various types-this is new for me (to freeze), they are in the freezer now, but we haven't tasted them yet)
11. Sloppy Joes (DD)
12. Chocolate chip cookies (I make them ahead of time and freeze them--other people freeze the dough) (Sneaky Chef recipe)
13. Muffins and breads freeze very well
14. Whole wheat pancakes (Sneaky Chef recipe)
15. Chili
16. Baked Ziti/Lasagna

Ok, that's enough for now. I think I will do Part #2 of this series at another time and go over some more "how-to" tips.

Happy cooking! Do you do freezer cooking? Do you have any ideas/tips to share about freezer cooking/make-ahead-meals? What about recipe ideas?!? Please leave a comment. Also, please let me know if you have any questions

I love my local library!

I already told you about my local library in this post. But, I wanted to write about it again, to encourage all in the area to stop by and check it out. The Corbit-Calloway Memorial Library is located in the heart of Odessa and is part of the New Castle County library system. My boys and I are continuing to enjoy the weekly story times on Wednesdays at 11:00. Please come check it out. The past three weeks there have been guests. We saw a wonderful magic show from a well-seasoned clown, learned about Earth Day and composting from a lady from the University of Delaware, and today, there was a physical therapist (how ironic--that's my background) there who talked to the children about posture and having a healthy spine. I have been so impressed by how educational and fun these times are for my kids and me.

Last week, I checked out their rack of books for sale and found 9 books for $0.25 each. I couldn't believe it! They were in great shape too. A couple of them looked brand new. Yes, books that are free are probably the best, but really cheap books that support the local library I love are really great too! I am a big fan of having a nice library in my home, especially of children's books. I know we will use them over and over again. I don't hesistate too much to make an investment with books. They can be soo expensive to buy new from the store, so I was excited to find some gently used ones for only $2.25 total.

(Oh, by the way, do you know books make great gifts for baby showers and for the family with that new baby? I will never forget how grateful I was for the gift of books I got when I was pregnant with my first son).

So here's what I got: (I was really excited to find the Cheerios book, a Curious George book, a Dr. Seuss book, "Are You My Mother?", and a cool book where my sons can practice writing their letters with a dry-erase marker).




Support your local library. Maybe you'll find some great books to take home too!


DIY: Homemade "Soda" or "Fizzy Juice"

So did the title of my post peek your interest? I hope so! When I first heard about Kefir Grains and using them to make soda from my husband's co-worker, I thought that sounds interesting and a bit weird. We don't give our kids juice (well very rarely) or soda and only my husband drinks diet, caffeine free soda (I'm still trying to get him to kick the habit), but we thought we'd give home "brewing" a try, as a nice, healthy alternative to the usual water and milk we drink in our home. "So what the heck are Kefir Grains" you ask? Well, I'm not quite sure where they come from, but they are healthy little bacteria--kinda like the bacteria in yogurt--that have those things called probiotics in them. Those things that help keep you "regular." You can read more about it at Wikipedia. Also, this woman, The Cheeseslave, blogs about it here.

She writes: "Enter homemade soda pop — made with water kefir grains. Not only is this homemade soda pop delicious and refreshing, it’s so easy to make. Oh, and did I mention that it’s healthy? Healthy soda pop? Could there be such a thing? Yes! This is a probiotic drink. The kefir bacteria eat the sugar, which makes the soda pop less sweet and it is filled with good bacteria (like the kind you get from yogurt or other probiotic foods). Kefir soda pop is a great option for kids instead of giving them juice. My two-year-old loves it. Homemade soda pop made with kefir grains is also super cheap to make. It’s just made from water and a little sugar, plus some fruit flavoring. You’ll save a ton not buying sodas or juice. Not only that, but as you use your kefir grains over time, they will grow and multiply. When you have more grains, you can make larger batches at a time."

So, a few weeks ago, my husband came home with these little cute things (thanks to his co-worker). (I guess these Kefir grains are hard to come by--but it seems like there are people out there who just pass them along--keep reading and maybe you can get some too!)




Our very own jar of water Kefir Grains to get us started on our very own home science project of making soda or "Fizzy Juice" as I like to call it.

These are what they look like when they are out of the water, but "hydrated."

So, we started our science project(s) with the help of my husband's friend and this is the recipe we are following. But, I have also tried the one found here, which is pretty similar. The website I just referenced has a lot of cool, helpful information about all this. And of course, I have tried some of my own adjustments as well over the past few weeks making our own "soda/juice" as my son calls it. But I will stick with the facts that I received as I have been told it is an "exact science." (Hahahaha!)

1. You will need several quart size Mason jars (I found them at Walmart) with plastic lids to get you started. You cannot use any metal/silver stuff in this whole process. Or you can use a 1/2 gallon size glass container or Mason jar. (This recipe will be for if you use a 1/2 gallon container)
2. 1 cup of hydrated Kefir Grains
3. 1/2 cup Organic sugar
4. 1 teaspoon black strap unsulphured Molasses
5. 6 cups un-chlorinated water (thankfully we have well-water here)
6. 1/4 teaspoon clean, sterilized crushed egg shell (or 1/2 whole egg shell)
(If using pieces of egg shell, wrap them in a sterile 4x4 square gauze pad and tie them up to place them in the liquid)
7. 1/4 teaspoon baking soda


First dissolve the sugar in the jar in a small amount of the warm/hot water. Make sure all sugar is dissolve and then add the remaining water (cool or room temperature) to the jar. Be sure the water has cooled completely before adding the Kefir grains as they are very, very fragile. I killed some already.




Next, add the Molasses, baking soda, and egg shell. Stir these ingredients and finally add the Kefir grains last. Give a quick stir with a wooden spoon. Cover loosely with the plastic lid, or use a coffee filter with a rubber band.


Let ferment at room temperature for 48 hours (no longer than 72 hours). After the 2-3 days, drain off the liquid into a clean jar, and add your desired flavors and ferment for one more day. I have tried 1 tsp. pure vanilla (to make "cream soda"), frozen blueberries, dried cranberries, frozen mixed berries, and just left it plain (which actually tastes good too). If using fruit, use about 1/4 cup or so. If frozen or fresh fruit is used, you must change it after 24 hours.

Here is a picture of all the varieties we have tried already. We have enjoyed the blueberry juice/soda the best.


See the "fizz"?!?!?




This is our blueberry soda.



So, there you have it. I am still learning about all this, but here's what I can share with you at this point. Are you interested in trying to make your own, healthy juice/soda? Well, if you are in my area, I have some extra Kefir grains I can give you. Don't bother buying them online. That would be silly. They multiply like crazy and my original cup has now turned into about 5 cups and I am not quite sure what to do with them. I would be happy to share them with you. Let me know.

Homemade Energy Bars

So I just got done making these and was so excited to share the recipe with you! I have been making them for two years now and just love them! These make a great breakfast, snack, or even dessert. They are a great alternative to granola bars or nutrigrain bars. My boys consider them a special treat...but they are so good for you! They are my favorite!!! I got the recipe from CNN-accent health. They freeze really well. I usually freeze 4-6 in a quart size Ziploc freezer bag. There is a lot of prep involved, so they are probably best to make during nap times or in the evenings. I get a lot of the ingredients in bulk at Costco. They are probably not the most "frugal" bars to make, but considering they would probably cost $1-$1.50 each at a health food store or coffee shop, the $5-$7, I may have spent on ingredients (gross estimate) to make a double batch (55 of them), I consider them well worth it. Actually, I didn't have to buy anything this time because I already had the stuff around the house. I do make them more like large cookies, rather than bars.
