$.25 Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats at Target


There is a great deal at Target for Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats cereal and you can get 3 boxes for .$.25 each. That is a hot price for cereal. The deal involves a printable coupon and Target Cartwheel. Click here to learn about Target Cartwheel.
http://cartwheel.target.com/

 There is a new Kellogg’s coupon to save $3 off 3 boxes of cereal.  This coupon will not last long so I would print it right away if you are interested.

I linked direct to the coupon so it should appear as the first thing you see and if you do not see it already checked to print, that means to coupon is gone now.

Here’s how:

Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats $2.50
Use 50% off Cartwheel Coupon
and use $3/3 Kellogg's coupon
Final Price: $.25 per box!

You can print the above coupon two times so to get 6 boxes of cereal split it up into two orders as the Cartwheel will only come off 4 items per order.

Here are the Cartwheel terms & conditions:

Offer valid in store only. Limit no more than one manufacturer coupon, one Target coupon and one Cartwheel offer can be combined per item. Scan all other coupons before scanning your Cartwheel barcode in store. Each Cartwheel offer may be used for up to a maximum of 4 qualifying items per offer per transaction, unless otherwise noted. Limit of 1 Cartwheel barcode per transaction and 6 Cartwheel barcode transactions per day. Void if copied, scanned, altered, transferred, purchased, sold, or prohibited by law. Item(s) may not be available at all stores. Not valid in Canada. Offer value may not exceed value of item purchased. No cash value.

Duckymeter Makes Bathtime Safe For Baby


I love products that are cute and functional at the same time. The Duckymeter by Ozeri is a must have product for new parents. This little yellow duck is a fun and safe bath toy that doubles as a bath thermometer. The cute yellow duck instantly activates when you place it in the water, no buttons to press. The duck floats also to entertain baby as you are bathing him. I love that the easy to read display lights up in fahrenheit and displays the temperature with 3 screen colors: Blue for Cold, Green for Just Right, and Red for Hot. The duck is compliant with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act and 3 AAA are included.


Here are pictures showing the cute yellow duck in action. The first picture shows the water is cold as the light is blue. The second picture shows a green light so water is the perfect temperature to bathe baby in. The third picture shows a red light and that means the water is too hot to bathe baby in. I love that parents do not have to guess if the water is safe for baby. What feels right to you may be too hot for baby. Don't take chances with your baby's safety and buy the Duckymeter. This makes a great baby shower gift.





 My boys who are 6 and 7 years also loved playing the Duckymeter in the sink. They had fun filling the sink up with cold and hot water to see what temperature and color the duck would light up.

My Smoothie Blender Is A Hamilton Beach 51106T Personal Blender


I have recently joined the smoothie craze. You have read many posts where I write about smoothies.  My son was the one who started making smoothies for a grab and go breakfast before school. He was using our regular blender and it took up so much space on the counter. So I decided if he was going to make smoothies every day, that I wanted something smaller that could stay out on the counter. I did my research and saw that there was many personal sized blenders one could purchase.  I settled upon the Hamilton Beach 51106T Personal Blender before I even knew it came in purple, it comes in many other colors too. The reviews were good and so was the price. When I found out that it comes in purple, I was sold. I love the color purple and since I was leaving in out on my counter I wanted it to look nice. I started making smoothies as I wanted a fast breakfast that was easy on my stomach that I could drink before running. 

This blender does not take up much counter space but don't let the size fool you on performance. This blender does a great job of  chopping up fruit and ice. I have put big strawberries that I only cut in half in my smoothie and this blender purees them just fine. The blades are metal and sharp, so ice is not problem for it. The jar says 14 ounces but when I filled it with water it held 18 ounces. That means you can make a two cup smoothie. The blender even has a hideaway cord wrap. I bought this wonderful purple blender at Amazon


Here is a link if you want it in a different color. It comes in white, black, red, and green.


Here is my smoothie recipes that I make.

1 cup plain yogurt(Here is a recipe for Homemade Yogurt)
1/2 cup cut up fruit 
2 tablespoons chia seeds or flax meal( great for omegas)
1/4 cup juice

Blend all ingredients in blender for about 30 seconds. If you want a really thick smoothie, make this the night before and chill in the fridge. The chia or flax thickens it up overnight.

Purple Cow Smoothie 
1 cup plain yogurt( store bought or Homemade)
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup grape juice
1 teaspoon White tea matcha

Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix for about a minute on high speed. This makes a generous sized smoothie that is great for breakfast or 2 servings for a snack.


So tell me about your smoothies, what do you like in them?

OvenArt Bakeware Silicone Muffin Pan Is A Non-stick Muffin Pan That's Worth It


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


I am in love with this red silicone muffin pan as it is great for making great egg muffins. OvenArt Silicone Muffin Pan is a wonderful muffin pan that is truly non-stick. I made spinach and cheese egg muffins in them and they came right out without leaving a mess behind. I once tried to make my spinach and cheese
egg muffins in a metal pan that I greased well and they stuck to the pan. I soaked my metal pan over night and it was still a nightmare to clean up.



OvenArt silicone muffin is made with pure 100%, high quality European silicone and  Food will slide out effortlessly and bake perfectly every time using your safe, BPA-free, filler-free, and worry-free silicone bakeware. Cleanup is a breeze too as the pan cleans up with soapy water or you can even toss it into the dishwasher. No more having to soak and scrub  messy metal pan when you use the wonderful red muffin pan. The OvenArt muffin pan is safe for the oven, freezer, microwave, and dishwasher.


 I had so much fun trying out the OvenArt Silicone muffin pan that, as my son calls it, I went on a baking frenzy. I made quiches, drop biscuits, and brownie muffins all in one day. This amazing red pan is also great for cupcakes, taco cups, mini cheese cakes, and frozen desserts.






The OvenArt pan was so easy to use. I simply brushed a drop of oil in each section of the pan before I poured the ingredients into the pan. 


Placing pie crust circles in the pan was easy too when  I made my egg and cheese quiches. I used a homemade pie crust that I rolled out and cut into 4 inch circles. I then pressed the circles into the pan and pour the egg and cheese filling into them. After baking the quiches were so easy to remove from the pan.






Spinach and cheese egg muffins

8 eggs
12 ounce frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/ teaspoon garlic powder

Beat eggs and add remaining ingredients. Combine to mix well. Brush the OvenArt muffin pan with oil and pour 1/4 cup egg mixture into each section. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until eggs are lightly brown and knife comes out clean when poked into eggs.



So get ready for stress-free baking and scrub-free cleaning with this wonderful silicone muffin pan by OvenArt Bakeware. This pan is perfect for first-time Silicone Bakers.
New silicone users will love the results batch after batch. They enjoy healthy homemade treats and save on store-bought packaged goods. This high quality muffin pan is protected by the OvenArt "Better Muffin" Guarantee for lifetime assurance against defects and performance issues.
