Got another bargain hunters website for ya! EcoBabyBuys only sells items from vendors that meet their strict criteria, including: "the use of non-toxic materials and dyes; the use of organic and/or recycled textiles and materials; the use of eco-friendly packaging; and a commitment and adherence to the standards of fair-trade." offers a "'one deal a day' format (that) gives you all of the above for at least 40% off regular retail prices. Our deals go green at 9 am EST, but you have to be quick with your mouse (or smartphone) because it’s on a first come, first serve basis."

Kids Woot!

Another bargain site for all you web shoppers! Kids Woot, the children's version of, works just like the other branches. They "offer a new deal every night at midnight Central time, in limited quantities at a discounted price. Only one product is available at any given time. ... When it sells out, or the next midnight rolls around, that deal is gone. No backorders, no rainchecks, no do-overs." That's according to the website, but I do check it every day and I have occasionally seen repeats, but I wouldn't count on it! If you want it, buy it! =)

5 Ingredient Chicken Fingers

I got this recipe from my 5 ingredient recipe cookbook, which I LOVE! Super simple and super yummy!

Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (2-4)
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup mashed potato flakes
1 egg*
olive oil

Flatten the chicken breasts and then cut into 1-inch strips. First roll the chicken in the egg or egg substitute [*I ran out of eggs so I actually used low fat ranch dressing, which turned out awesome!]. Then roll the strips in the bread crumb/potato flake mixture. Cook in the oil in a frying pan. Yum!

Mobile blogging?

So I found the Blogpress app for my iPhone and I'm pretty excited about the prospect of mobile blogging! I definitely think I might be able to post little posts more frequently! This one's my tester ;)

McCormick Bag 'n Season

I always try to have a home cooked, heathly and well rounded meal on the table for my family- but I gotta tell ya, finding the time between chasing a toddler, grading and doing my own homework for grad school can be tough!! So, this post is going to sound like a commercial, but last night I made a chicken and rice dinner with a McCormick Bag 'n Season mix. SO easy!!! Especially if you're a lacking in the creativity when it comes to cooking. Anything else I can do, seriously, but if I don't have a recipe.... oy! Anyways, these things are great!
