FF #6 – Easy as Pie

Tags: , , ,

Friday nights have become pizza and movie night at the Maroon house. Something we thought would be fun to establish as a regular routine for Mini Maroon to enjoy. I have gotten into the habit of making it all myself. I use a mix to do the crust, make sauce, shred cheese, and top with […]

FF #5 – Where are Your Loyalties?

Tags: , , , ,

Grocery store loyalty cards have always been a part of my shopping experience. Except of course the glorious years where I had access to HEB – the best grocery store found on earth. But alas, no HEB nearby anymore. I know that loyalty cards get a bad rap a lot of the time… the prices […]

FF #1 – Save those Berries!!

Tags: , , ,

As soon as you come home from the grocery store with berries, plan to soak them in a cool bath of water and vinegar. I don’t have exact measurements (I rarely measure when I cook), but I’d say a decent pour of plain, white vinegar into a half-full sink of cool water. I picked this […]
