Recipe Organizer - a Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Kristen was our lucky winner!  Congratulations!!!
Every time the Universe answers one of my requests, I'm always amazed.  I've been searching for the perfect recipe organizer and Cook'n Recipe Organizer v.11 comes as close as possible.


"Cook'n is the #1 Best-Selling Recipe Organizer and is the ultimate kitchen companion."

Cook'n Recipe Organizer v.11
Cook'n Recipe Organizer v.11

How many times have you found yourself or someone in your family asking "What's for dinner?" or looking in the refrigerator or pantry and saying "There's nothing to eat"?  You find yourself getting stressed or upset, throwing in the towel, and going out to eat.  This is a vicious cycle.

We used to find ourselves eating out quite a bit and not really even enjoying the luxury.  Then I got a little older and wasn't as willing to put up with the side effects from my food intolerences/allergies and decided to start making more of our meals and snacks at home.

It often takes an illness or allergy to get us to buckle down and get serious.  DH and I now use a shopping list, create a menu (it's usually more of an idea list based on what's on hand), and have learned to be a little smarter about the foods we buy.  We aren't perfect, we still buy soft drinks, cake mixes (gluten-free), and chocolate.

Here are some things that are a must-have in our home:
  • Gluten-free pastas
  • Beans - black, kidney, garbanzo, etc.
  • Quinoa
  • Oil
  • Gluten-free flours
  • Frozen fruits and vegetables
  • Gluten-free cake mix
  • Non-dairy milk
  • Coconut Oil
From the items listed above, I can whip up a delicious meal and dessert on any occasion.   In fact, DH and I were able to go a month (we were both so sick) without visiting the grocery store.  Toward the end, we were getting pretty creative but with our basic necessities, we were able to sustain.

We are so much more organized now and it's fun to figure out our weekly menus with Cook'n.  Our goal is to work up to a monthly menu, this will not only streamline our grocery list but also help save us money and time with fewer trips to the store.


Cook'n Recipe Organizer v.11 is the Only Recipe Software that lets you:

  • Organize
    • Organize your Pinterest Recipes in Cook'n. Cook'n will Automatically import all of your Pinterest recipes with one click and synchronize the two so any new recipes that you Pin will automatically appear in Cook'n! It's not magic... but it's pretty close to it!

The Traveler - A Cocktail Recipe


The Traveler - A Cocktail Recipe by Substance of Living


What do you think of the name "The Traveler" for a drink?  When I made this the other night, it made me feel a bit like a big city dweller at the same time a world sea traveler.
The Traveler - A Cocktail Recipe by Substance of Living

The two drinks that I chose to combine for The Traveler are the Cosmopolitan (more widely known as the Cosmo) and the Salty Dog.

Ingredients

1/2 oz. Triple Sec
1 1/2 oz. Vodka
Grapefruit Juice
Splash of Lemon Lime Soda

* Garnish with a sugared rim or a wedge of orange dipped in colored sugar.
The Traveler - A Cocktail Recipe by Substance of Living

Directions


  • In a shaker add ice, vodka, triple sec, and grapefruit juice. Shake vigorously.
  • Strain into a chilled margarita or martini glass.
  • Add a splash of lemon/lime soda.
  • Garnish.

Note

  • To garnish the rim of a glass, lightly dip the top of the glass in water, juice or rub a piece of fruit or rind around the edge of the glass top.
  • After wetting the glass top, rub in salt/sugar/cinnamon/or any other garnish.
  • We wanted to see how the taste and look would alter so we added a touch of grenadine (maraschino cherry juice would also work).
  • For those of you who may have people that are under the legal drinking age, or if you are under the legal drinking age, this drink can still be enjoyed without the addition of vodka.

This was a really refreshing drink and the grenadine added a slight sweetness.

So, are you a Traveler?

Rent a Timeshare - a Review and Giveaway!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.





Winery Vacation
One of our favorite vacations!

Are you starting to panic about the upcoming spring break and summer vacations?

You're probably asking yourselves, "Where will we go, what type of accommodations are within our price range, how much will eating out cost and how many meals will we eat?  Will we be able to get a hotel room that will have enough beds and space for all of us?  Will there be a kitchen?"  I don't know about you but I'm stressed already.  Tempted to throw in the towel and just stay home.

Family vacations are about making memories and of course we all know that there is a financial cost to those memories so why not enjoy the vacation and spend the money on the actual memory making fun and not the room.

Have you ever thought of renting a timeshare at an exclusive resort?  Did you know it was possible to stay at a resort for a fraction or the same cost as a nearby hotel?

Why Timeshare Rentals


There are many advantages to timeshare rentals such as the spacious accommodations, many of which are condos at luxury resorts.  Renting timeshares for a group or family vacation has its advantages since travelers, like you, come to RedWeek.com to rent directly from the owner, "often at tremendous savings compared with hotels or dealing with the resort itself". 

Typical Timeshare Rentals

  • Super luxurious
  • Multiple bedrooms and bathrooms
  • Full kitchens and dining areas
  • Swimming pools, spas, saunas
  • On-site activities for the whole family
  • Located in top travel destinations
Here is what I consider to be one of the biggest advantages of renting a timeshare directly through the owner, and that is NO TOURS or sales pitches!
 
Once you sign up as a FREE guest, you will be able to view timeshares for rent, amenities, price, and join in on the conversations over at the Forum.

Types of Resorts and (some of their) Locations

  • All-Inclusive - Catamaran Cruises, Mexico, Aruba, Caribbean, Jamaica, Costa Rica
  • Beaches - Aruba, Hawaii, Mexico, Myrtle Beach, Florida
  • Casinos - Las Vegas, Bahamas, Reno
  • Golf - Pebble Beach, Sedona, Las Vegas, Myrtle Beach
  • Kid Friendly - Hawaii, Florida, South Carolina
  • Pet Friendly - St. Martin, France, Canada, Florida, Louisiana, and more
  • Theme Parks - Orlando, Pigeon Forge, Williamsburg, California (Disney, Six Flags, Knott's Berry Farm, Legoland, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens)
The website is very easy to navigate through thousands of rentals by location or resort, forums, and you can contact the owners of timeshare rentals.


Notes of Particular Interest

  • Notice that in the center of the home page is “Top Timeshare Rental Destinations” showing you at a glance how inexpensive timeshare rentals can be.
  • Timeshare Rentals are the Best Kept Secret for Vacation Deals.
  • Do you want to know one of the best kept secrets for a great Vacation Deal?  Rent a timeshare for your family vacation.
  • Many people are unaware of the advantages of renting a timeshare for a budget-friendly family vacation.  Timeshare rentals typically cost up to 50% less than hotel rooms, especially when rented directly from the owner. 
  • When owners are unable to use their timeshare weeks, renting out the timeshare becomes a win/win for both the owner and families who are looking for vacation accommodations that are a bargain.  And with a timeshare rental you can even afford to stay at luxury resorts.
  • Instead of an expensive and cramped hotel room, how luxurious would it be to stay in accommodations that are open and spacious and relaxing?  A timeshare is like a real home-away-from-home.  You have separate bedrooms, a dining area, a living room, a patio or balcony, and a kitchen.  And best of all – maid service will clean it, keep it supplied with fresh towels and linens, and even carry out the garbage. 
  • Even more budget-friendly is being able to save money on meals.  Most timeshare rentals come with a full-sized, fully-equipped kitchen.  That makes it easy to prepare meals so you don’t have to pay high restaurant prices three times a day.  And talk about convenience – now you can sleep in, and fix breakfast right there – no more trying to get everyone up, showered, dressed and out the door just to get something to eat.  And the kitchen makes it easy to prepare inexpensive, nutritious snacks for those constantly hungry kids.
  • You can stay in a hotel with the use of one small pool (often for an extra fee), or stay in a timeshare rental where many of the resort’s amenities are included in the rental price. 
  • Most resorts will have swimming pools, often with waterpark features, hot-tubs, kiddie pools and children’s playgrounds, as well as tennis courts, and arcade game rooms. 
  • Additional activities often include such things as miniature golf, volleyball, and even bocci ball tournaments.  You can find arts and craft classes, ice cream socials, and BBQ get-togethers.  Depending on the location, you’ll also have direct access to beaches, mountain biking trails, skiing, or theme parks right out your front door.  All this, and often for much, much less than what a hotel room costs.
  • Timeshare rentals offer families the opportunity to vacation at luxury resorts for less – and that’s a great Vacation Deal!


Now for what you've been waiting for - drum roll please...

The Giveaway!



One lucky winner (it could very well be YOU!) will receive a Free 2-Year RedWeek Membership

The contest begins February 14, 2014 and runs through February 23, 2014.

Today's Top Ways to Save Money on Vacation

When you and your family head out for vacation this year, don't leave your household budget at home. 

The price of rest and relaxation ought to be priceless but in more cases than not are quite expensive. Add up all your cost: transportation, accommodations, sightseeing, souvenirs, food, attractions -- you might be tempted to cancel the trip altogether.

Alas - you can still enjoy your vacation, family, and stay within budget by following these simple tips.

Be Flexible

  • Travel during "Shoulder Season" (Not during peak season or off season)
    • April - May or Mid-August - October
  • Choose alternative dates or days of the week to travel
  • Try Vacation Packages or All-Inclusive Packages

  Eat for Free (or nearly free)

  • Many restaurants offer a free child's meal for each paying adult.  There may be restrictions such as two children maximum or might only be available on certain days.
  • If you do eat out, lunch might be your best time.  The prices are reasonable and any leftovers can either be dinner or a late night snack. 
  • Restaurants often have coupons for a free meal or appetizer.
  • Use your discounted gift card or ask if club discounts are available (AAA, AARP, Good Sam).

Use Discount Clubs or Coupons

Remember to take along your school ID, membership cards such as Costco, AAA, AARP, Good Sam and ask the theme park or museum offers discounts.

  • Kayak - Compares several travel sites at once
  • Priceline.com - Book or bid for your hotel, vacation package, airline tickets
  • Hotels.com - Book your hotel, hotel package, or flight (also has a rewards program)
  • Costco - Purchase vacation packages, gift cards, theme parks and attractions for your destination (also has a rewards membership program)
  • Search for "Online Coupons" or "Discount Codes"
  • AAA - Purchase your vacation package, get tickets for theme parks (online or in your local office)
  • Vacations To Go -  Discounted Cruise vacations
  • Check with your bank or credit union
Sign up for Local Discounts such as Groupon, Living SocialsAmazon Local or Mamapedia.

Discounted Gift Cards

Since you're going to be spending money anyway, try purchasing discounted gift cards.  That way, you're spending less, staying within a budget, and not having to carry so much cash.

  • Gift Cards
  • Gift Card Granny - Buy or sell your gift cards online
  • GiftCards.com
  • Card Cash - Buy or sell your gift cards online - "Free Shipping On All Orders.   All Transactions Guaranteed.  45 Day Buyer Protection."
  • Costco - Discounted gift cards for Restaurants, Theme Parks, Activities, Theaters - shop online, at your local store or find out if there is a Costco near your vacation destination

Find a grocery store

Chances are high that no matter where you're vacationing, there are grocery stores nearby.  Whether your hotel has a kitchenette or not, you can still buy some food and enjoy your own version of "Room Service".

How smart are you - room service without the inflated price and additional surcharge, not to mention the tip.
  • If your hotel room has a kitchenette:
    • Juice
    • Milk
    • Cereal
    • Mayonnaise, Mustard, Butter
    • Bread
    • Cold cuts
    • Vegetables
    • Spaghetti, Spaghetti Sauce
    • Soup
    • Cheese
    • Microwave Dinners
    • Bottled Water
    • Bag of Ice in case there isn't an ice machine near by to fill your cooler for day-trips
  • If your hotel room has a microwave and small refrigerator:
    • Juice
    • Milk
    • Cereal
    • Mayonnaise, Mustard Butter
    • Bread
    • Cold cuts
    • Fruits
    • Vegetables (carrots, celery)
    • Cheese
    • Microwave Dinners
    • Microwave Popcorn
    • Bottled Water
    • Instant Oatmeal
  • If your hotel room doesn't come with any amenities:
    • Bottled Water
    • Bring your own cooler so you can keep food and drinks cold
    • Bag of Ice in case there isn't an ice machine nearby
    • Heat up water using the coffee pot for instant oatmeal
    • Fruit
    • Vegetables
    • Snack or protein bars
    • Peanut Butter, Jelly, Bread
    • Other non-perishable foods
  • Pack a cooler for snacks and at least lunch while out.
Bring your own microwave-safe dishes and utensils for each member of the family along with some dish soap.  That way you can enjoy breakfast and snacks in the room.

Staycation

In case your budget or time isn't conducive to traveling outside the state this year try staycationing.  It's essentially a vacation within your own hometown or state.  You can either stay at home, camp, or get a hotel room.  The point is that you're staying local.
  • Find out what is happening locally.
  • Book a hotel within town or near the local amusement park.
  • Take one week or your allotted vacation time and spend it as a family unit being tourists in your own hometown.
  • Choose a local city within an hour or two driving time and be a visitor.  Try choosing a new town or city for each vacation day.
  • DO NOT stay home and do chores or have separate activities.  This is still a family vacation!
Additional Ideas
  • Plan some downtime and take advantage of the pool or game room at your hotel.
  • Plan ahead - having daily suggestions keeps everyone happy.
  • Include everyone in the planning process. 
  • Take advantage of your smart phone and use apps for local discounts in the area, gas prices along the way, and coupons.

Some questions to keep in mind:

  1. Can we drive rather than fly?  Even with the price of gas today, the breakdown of cost per person may be much less.  You'll also have a car at your final destination.
  2. Is the journey just as important as the destination?
  3. What is our budget and how can we stay within and still have a memorable time?
  4. What excursions are we willing to forgo in order to still have fun and save money?
  5. How will we pay for this vacation?  Save monthly - how many months and how much do we need to set aside each month?  Use discounted gift cards?  Splurge and use the credit card?
Where are you going to vacation this year?  Please share your ideas of places to visit, how to save money, or how you plan your vacation in the comments below.





P.S., This was not a sponsored post.  I was not paid.  However, if you were to purchase anything through the Amazon links, I will receive a small payment - you will NOT be charged any higher than if you were to purchase through Amazon on your own.

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies - Product Review and Recipe

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies by Substance of Living
Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies
DH and I were trying to figure out when Red Velvet anything is not appreciated.  What we were able to decipher is that Christmas, Valentines Day, Birthdays, Parties of any sort, Weekdays, Weekends, in fact any time is appropriate to serve up Red Velvet something or other.

We are serving Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies by Duncan Hines with tea this afternoon.  Here's how we did it (of course I had to change up the actual recipe a bit as you'll see in the notes).
Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake Mix as seen on Substance of Living
Duncan Hines Signature Red Velvet Cake Mix

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

Ingredients:

(Taken directly from the box)
6 tablespoons Butter
1 cup Powdered Sugar
1 teaspoon Cornstarch
1 box Duncan Hines Signature Red Velvet Cake Mix
2 Large Eggs
1 teaspoon Lemon Zest

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Melt Butter and set aside.

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies by Substance of Living
  • Combine Cornstarch and Powdered Sugar in a shallow bowl - set aside.
Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies by Substance of Living
  • Combine and mix by hand the Cake Mix, Cooled Butter, Eggs and Lemon Zest until dough forms.

After the butter and eggs have been added, look at the color beginning to show.

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies by Substance of Living
Stir the mixture by hand.
Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies by Substance of Living
Doesn't this look heavenly?!

  • Form dough into 1 inch balls by hand and roll in the powdered sugar mixture.
    Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies by Substance of Living
    Cookies have been rolled in the powder mixture and ready to bake
  • Bake 9 to 11 minutes on ungreased baking sheets about 2 inches apart.

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies by Substance of Living
  • Allow cookies to cool for about a minute on the baking sheet before transferring to a cooling rack.

Notes:

  • You can use Vegan Butter but the picture is real butter because it looked so much prettier.
  • Egg Whites or a vegan substitute can be used rather than whole eggs.
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice can be used in place of the lemon zest.
  • Tapioca, potato or any other starch can be used in place of Cornstarch.
  • As the cookies bake, the cornstarch/powdered sugar mixture dries and makes the tops of the cookies crack.
  • DH and others tell me these were delicious and moist.
  • These cookies would probably freeze well or at the very least keep for a few days in an airtight container.  I haven't been able to test this theory as each time these cookies have been made they are all eaten within a day.  If you're able to keep your cookies longer than a day, please tell me how you kept them and how you were able to keep the cookies hidden long enough.  :-)
  • I really need to try this with a gluten-free box cake and of course make it vegan.  Oh hey! I might even get ambitious and make the cookies from scratch.
Have you made these cookies?  If you have, did you make it from a box, scratch, gluten-free, or vegan?

Pet Medications Discount Card - A Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


Lilly in a Paper Bag - Substance of Living
Lilly

Lilly, whom you may have seen around here and here, is our unofficial Substance of Living mascot.  I mention Lilly and not the other kitties because she has to take medicine on a daily basis.  Lilly has, what I've been able to understand, feline equivalent to human lupus.

The type of illness that Lilly has is one that her body has for some reason become allergic to the enamel on her teeth.  She has had some of her teeth pulled but the rest are in such good shape that the consensus is to not pull them but to manage the inflammation and pain for the time being.

Lilly has to take Prednisolone on a daily basis.  Sometimes, depending on her stress level or allergens in the air, she may have to take more than one pill a day and other times she gets to skip a day.  She gets a break twice a year when she is allowed a steroid shot that is really strong.  The shot is nice in one way and that it helps get the medicine in her system and calms everything down.  The bad thing about the shot is that it is so hard on her little body.  We have to watch her organs and immune system.

Now that I've painted this horrible picture of our sweet little Lilly, let me tell you that she is interactive and loves life.  She has a healthy appetite and thoroughly enjoys her treats, writing, studying the stock market, crafting, and enjoys reading your emails and comments.

When I was chosen to write a review for a discount pet medication card you can only imagine how thoughts of saving money floated through my head.

This morning, I drove over to CVS and Walgreens respectively with a prescription bottle and pet medication card:

CVS Pharmacy

The pharmacy assistant was friendly and helpful although she was unable to pull up a price or discount percentage without an actual prescription from the veterinarian.

Walgreens Pharmacy

Spoke with the pharmacist and learned that they do not carry the prednisolone in tablet form.  In fact, they don't carry any form of the medication.  What she was able to tell me about this particular medication is that they would have to compound the liquid form into a tablet and that they were actually unable to do any compounding.  Also, that the medication is approved for animals not humans (pretty sure that is what she said) so they would neither carry nor be able to attain it for me.

The pharmacist did assure me that the pet medication card would offer a discount on approved medications that they carry but not able to tell me how much of a discount.

What I Learned

  • CVS and Walgreens accepts this pet medication card.
  • The percentage of savings will vary according to the medication so the discount is not known until the prescription is entered into the database.
  • Be sure, just as you probably do with your own doctor, and ask if the prescription can be swapped out with a generic.
  • I will continue to check with the pharmacist to see if future prescriptions can be filled through them and use my pet medication card.
  • Although I visited CVS and Walgreens, the card is accepted at major pharmacies including Target.

Start saving today by visiting Medication Discount Card and printing out your own Pet medication card.   Depending on which medication you are purchasing, the savings could be as great as 75 percent!
 
Learn more about the different prescriptions covered

Let us know how much you were able to save using your pet medication card.  Were you able to save on other pet supplies?

I will keep you informed as we move forward and other prescriptions need filling.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
