So I have been looking through tons of magazines and cookbooks trying to find the best cookies I can find. I think I have found a few I definitely want to try on top of our family favorites. I will be sure to post the recipes and try and remember to take some pictures if I can get them before the kids snatch the cookies. :-)

I got this recipe from a magazine (but I can't remember which one, sorry) and tried last night, and everyone really likes them! They taste like lemon bars...so good..We would definitely make again.
1 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 c. thawed frozen lemonade concentrate, divided
In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter till light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time till well mixed. Combine flour and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with 1/3 c. lemonade concentrate, beating well between each addition.
Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Remove to wire racks. Brush with remaining lemonade and sprinkle with sugar.

I know it's been a while and I apologize, but I am going to work on the site over the next few weeks hopefully.
Here is a link for a couple recipes that some have asked for over the past few weeks.
Harvest Cinnamon Rolls (the ones I made for everyone last year at Christmas)
Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day (which makes great pizza dough)
Sweet Potato and Apple Recipe (made this at Thanksgiving and will make again at Christmas, everyone loved it, even picky kids who don't like sweet potatoes that much)

Hi, all! I am "vacation mode" and trying to pin down all the details for our family vacation/dance nationals coming up in June. I plan on taking my crock pot with us so we can use it to cook and save some money while there. So if you have any recipes to share where you use your crock pot for a meal, please share. Either post a comment or e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) so I can try it before we leave. Our goal is to have atleast 8-10 meals in the crock pot.
We took a pot roast with us to a dance competition a couple months ago, and it worked great! Made the whole floor smell good too!

I thought I would share some ideas for breakfast and lunches that you might be able to use, or adapt for your own.

I have been telling everyone that I can shop for $150 per month. Here's an article I came across today, where someone else talks about how much they spent. Check out this article.

I am joining over 400 women who blog and post their weekly menus online so we can share ideas, save money and know what we are having for dinner, without having to stress about what we are going to do for dinner. I will try and post the recipes I use for each dinner. Here is my first attempt, if you click on the weekly menus online above it will take you to the list of the other 400+ menus. All my recipes unless otherwise noted, will be from my freezer. I am going to try and post how much each recipe costs in the future, I can tell you that most of my meals are under $6.50 per meal, as I normally spend around $150-175 per month. The main site that does the MPM's (Menu Plan Monday's) is called $5 dinners. All the meals are under $5 each meal. So you can eat healthy, and have variety and still each cheap.
Monday - Homemade Pizza's (individually made using the 5 minute bread recipe)
Tuesday - Montreal Chicken, Sweet Potato Fries, and green beans

Everyone loves this! It is great with celery, chips, corn chips, anything, you want to use to dip with it!
3/4 cup Frank's hot sauce*
2 1/2 cups-3 cups of shredded or chopped chicken ( great recipe to make with leftovers)
1 cup Ranch dressing
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese ( I used a cheddar, but you could use anything)
Gently heat hot sauce and chicken and then add cream cheese and ranch, stirring often till melted and creamy. Add cheese, continue stirring until smooth. Serve with taco chips, crackers or celery. Serve immediately or cool and freeze. Thaw before reheating.
*You can use any tobasco sauce/hot sauce.
