Pizza Night #familyfavorites

CBias Disclose
Each Friday is Pizza night in our home. It’s a way to make #familyfavorites into a lovely family gathering putting tasty ingredients together into a meal we can all enjoy.Pizza Night with Classico Sauces #familyfavorites #shop #cbias

Homemade Pizza starts with homemade dough. This is one of my least favorite things to do (such a mess) but it’s so worth it. I’ve been teaching my eldest daughter how to make the dough so she can one day start this tradition with her own family. I like to have the kids in the kitchen with me when I cook so they learn how to make these same dishes.Pizza Night with Classico Sauces #familyfavorites #shop #cbias

Dinnertime is often about tradition and family time. I try my best to prepare meals that my family loves but also like to try new dishes so that my kids learn to enjoy a wide variety of food. Even though each Friday is Pizza night the rest of the week is filled with other Family Favorites like Baked Cheesy Pasta, Lime Chicken Tacos and from scratch Macaroni and Cheese.

It feels great when were done a meal and the kids rave about how good it was. And when the kids request a certain dish that they really enjoyed at some point, that definitely means I’m doing something right.

Pizza Night is a completely interactive process with the whole family. Even though I make the dough putting together part is done by the whole family. Toppings are set out so each person can make their own pizza the way they like. This is a great way to introduce new ingredients I want the kids to taste.Pizza Night with Classico Sauces #familyfavorites #shop #cbiasThis is the fun part of the night, except for eating of course. You can see how Shae and Sabreena are adding Classico Family Favorites Traditional Sauce. This sauce has a great sweetness to it that balances great with the spicy pepperoni, roasted garlic and red onions. That was what I chose for my pizza on this night.

Classico Family Favorites come in 3 flavors, Meat Sauce, Traditional and Parmesan & Romano.  For pizza night we went with the simplest because we also add additional ingredients or herbs to suit our taste. Right out of the jar I like the flavor of the Traditional. It brought to mind of an amazing spaghetti and homemade meatball dinner on a cool fall night. In fact with the weird cooler weather we’re already getting this August we probably are too far away from indulging in that family favorite. Unfortunately our Walmart was out of Parmesan & Romano. I wanted to try this along with some roasted veggies over grilled chicken. I will be headed back to the store soon to see if they restocked.

Shopping Osh Kosh plus #Coupon

Shopping for Shae is really fun these days. She’s old enough to pull of fun trends and designs but still young enough that we can go bright with the colors and exaggerated with the details. Osh Kosh has been a shopping staple since Sabreena was little, that’s where her first pair of overalls came from. Today I shop Osh Kosh for Shae for their variety, quality and price. I’m lucky to have an outlet nearby that I can visit on a regular basis.  This most recent shopping trip was a complete success.

For about $103 I got Shae 3 complete outfits, a long tunic to go with existing leggings and a thick patterned pair of tights for a dress already in her closet.

Shopping Osh Kosh for Kids

I try to shop with purpose. I hate coming home with seperates that don’t have a match or unusual items that end up sitting in the closet or drawer.  I like to get an inventory of what my kids need in advance.  This was simple for Shae since I still handle her clothes. I knew what she needed. This doesn’t always help m e shop easier.  I stepped into my local Osh Kosh store and was blown away by the selection for Shae’s size. I tend to find some stores focus on the baby to preschool age but Osh Kosh had her sizes in almost everything I picked up.  Even their clearance section had lots to choose from.

Shopping Osh Kosh is fun and easy and affordable. It seems they are always having a sale.  And best of all you can save even more money with their rewards program or by using this 25% off coupon.

Family Game Night with Snyder’s of Hanover and Mattel

Sabreena has been asking for the game Apples to Apples.  She said it’s a game that we can probably all play.  For whatever reason I keep forgetting to get it.

I opened up a box today that was filled to the brim with Snyder’s of Hanover snacks and guess what was in it? Apples to Apples.  There were other games too but that one is what the kids were so excited for.

Snyder’s of Hanover and Mattel are teaming up to provide not only some wholesome snacks but some wholesome fun. These are the days of technology so sometimes we forget to power down and enjoy real face to face interaction with family and friends.

Beginning in April shoppers can pick up qualifying bags f Snyder’s of Hanover snacks and find a $1.00 off coupon for an Uno Game.  Keep you eyes peeled for the Mattel sticker when choosing your favorite snacks.

In the  meantime check out Snyder’s of Hanover recipes page for snack and meal ideas.  These sweet and salty treats, Easy Pretzel Turtle Snaps are something I can make very quickly in time for last minute guests or as an easy weeknight dessert.

Men Easier Fed than Understood, Ball Park Coupon

Ball Park Hot Dogs, Facebook The BIG GAME is right around the corner! What are your plans for the day? Are you engaging or hosting the festivities? Do you not really care?

I’m part of the not really care team. Don’t get me wrong, I like football, I’ll watch the games if they are on but I’m not a die-hard fan of any team. Hosting a get-together and putting out a tasty spread is where I fit in.

This year Ball Park wants the guys to get together and get them fed while discussing stats, yards, formations and drives. It doesn’t matter the sport or activity or hobby, whatever Rob talks about just goes in one ear and out the other. Can you imagine my delight when 2 of our friends took up cycling. We were hanging out one day and they started talking gears and components and my best friend and I looked at each other and just walked away with our wine. The conversation they had reminded me a lot of this conversation that Ball Park is sharing.

Ball Park has got it right, Men, Easier Fed than Understood. This year for the Superbowl we’re keeping it low key and simple. As long as the weather cooperates we’ll be grilling burgers and dogs. We’re going to give the new Ball Park Angus Beef Franks a try. Sounds like a very adult meal to me. Better yet it sounds simple and nothing beats a grilled dog.

Try them for yourself too. Visit Ball Park on Facebook, give them a LIKE click and you’ll be able to download a $1 coupon for Ball Park products. Tell me what other MANLY conversations go on around you that you just don’t “get”.

I Disclose Is Your Savings Answer

Have you ever been ready to walk out the door to go shopping and realize you wanted to print off a coupon to save a few bucks during your trip? If so you need to check out gives the consumer, the opportunity to save money by publishing the most up to date promotion codes and coupons available online. This works by allowing the consumer to participate by listing new promotion codes that worked for them or by reporting the success or failure of a particular code posted by someone else. This is a free service and you can even watch how much money you save by using the updated ticker.

How Works

Unlike most coupon and promotion code sites, goes through great lengths to ensure that the codes on our site work. In addition to us spot-checking, visitors vote on the success rate of codes. If a code has not worked for more than three days and hits a certain percentage of failure, it is automatically removed from the site.

One thing to remember about is the promotion codes, coupons, and discounts may be changed suddenly by merchants without notice so you need to make sure you check to be sure you received your saving from the merchant when using these codes and coupons.

To me this an awesome service. The thing I like most is the success and failure rate that people list for the coupons. I can’t tell you how many times I have found a coupon on the internet only to find out that it is either expired or no longer valid. It is very frustrating when the coupon or code doesn’t work but tells you up front how successful your coupon or code it taking away the guess work.

If you like saving money which I am sure 99.9% of people do head over to before you hit the stores or shop online to cash in on savings.

Couponing isn’t for everyone

Last night I watched TLC’s Extreme Couponing. I was fascinated and intrigued. I love listening to stories of how people save obsene amounts of money with coupons and sales and matching and doubling and all the other tricks. What I can’t grasp is how people have 6 hours a day to stroll through a grocery store. I barely have enough time in a day to cook, clean and keep the kids safe I don’t know how I could squeeze in hours of couponing. Oh I know, I could stop blogging 🙂 and reading the internet.

Honestly I’ve tried couponing in the past but on a smaller scale but I find that there aren’t coupons and sales available for the things that we buy. We don’t drink soda or juice boxes. We don’t eat a lot of processed or ready to eat foods. And we really just don’t have the space for all the bulk shopping. We do shop healthier than most of the people I watched on this show so I’m not sure how our lifestyle would benefit. I don’t find coupons for fresh produce and fresh meats. Maybe I’m not looking; I’m sure I don’t know where to look actually.
What I really want to save money on is dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, feminine products (hate paying for this stuff), trash bags, toothpaste and deodorant. We spends tons of money on these things and I’d love to start here! Someone wanna train me in couponing? Point me in the right direction!
