Super Delicious Jell-O Salad

Okay, I have this recipe for Jell-O salad that I have to share since all of the ingredients are on sale this week. Let me clarify that I am not, nor have I ever been, a huge fan of Jell-O (I know, I know, how can I possibly say that...please try to stifle your gasps.) I am also not a fan of tapioca pudding, but this salad is seriously amazing. It is a hit with my whole family. And, whenever I take it places, I am always asked for the recipe. This is a recipe that is finger-lickin good and super easy.

Jell-O Salad

2 boxes tapioca pudding
1 box cherry Jell-O
3 cups water

Bring all ingredients to a boil. Transfer to a big bowl and put it in your refrigerator to cool. It will take a couple of hours to set.

1 carton cool whip
raspberries to taste, frozen or fresh (if frozen, thaw and drain)

When Jell-O has set, fold in the cool whip and add raspberries. And that's it folks. Yummy!!!

We have also tried substituting orange Jell-O and mandarin oranges and it is good too, but the cherry and raspberry combination is my favorite.

***Note: I know that tapioca pudding is never on sale, so take your HyVee ad to Walmart and have them price match it. Trust me, it's worth it!

Ruby Tuesday BOGO Coupon

Online Coupons

Here are some nice online coupons that I thought I'd share:

  • Wholly Guacamole. We love this at our house. Wait until it goes on sale for 2/$5 OR 2/$3 OR BOGO and use 2 coupons. This freezes well too! It expires June 1st.
  • Kraft Foods coupons They have lots of $1 off coupons! Just an example, they have $1 off any Kraft salad dressing and if you go to Walmart and use this coupon, the dressing will be .58!
  • Coupon Mom coupons. These might be a lot of the same coupons as the Kraft coupons, but I think there are a few in there that are different.

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

We love this soup at our house...and why not, all topped with melted cheese and crispy bacon. Yum!

Baked Potato Soup:

4 largeish baking potatoes
2/3 cup butter
2/3 cup flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp white pepper
6 cups milk
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup sliced green onions
Bacon, cooked and crumbled
Shredded cheese

-Bake potatoes or cook them in a microwave. Peel and cube potatoes into desired size (I like my potato chunks to be on the small side).
-In a large saucepan melt butter then stir in flour. Add salt and pepper and stir until smooth. Gradually add milk and bring to a boil.
-Cook and stir until thickened. Turn down heat and add sour cream. Stir until smooth. Add potatoes and green onions and heat through. Be sure to not heat too quickly or the sour cream will curdle.
-Top with more onions if desired, bacon and cheese.

Blackberry Muffins

Okay, so I think I am going to start posting recipes that correspond with deals that might be going on each week. This week I am so excited to share one of my favorite recipes: Blackberry Muffins. These muffins are so great because they just a little bit tart and not too sweet. They are so delish with a nice helping of butter smeared on top. I love them. In fact, I've just eaten 3 while typing this post. :)

Blackberry Muffins

Makes about 18-muffins

2 cups AP Flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp milk
2/3 c sugar
8 Tbsp (1 stick) melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
11 0z fresh blackberries, cut in half

-Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease your muffin tins or line with paper cups.
-Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl
-In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, milk, sugar, butter and vanilla
-Add the we mixture to the dry mixture and mix together with a few light strokes, just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Add the berries. Do not overmix! Overmixing will cause the muffins to be dense, not fluffy. The batter should not be smooth.
-Spoon batter into muffin tins. Bake about 17-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 2-3 minutes before removing from the pan.

Grocery Deals

Just a quick posting on General Mills Cereal: at Price Chopper this week GM Cereal is 5/$10. Now, I just got back from Price Chopper and their selection STINKS! So, I looked at the ad and it says "selected varieties"...I LOVE it when it says that. Go to Price Chopper, get their ad, and take it to Walmart to have them price match on the cereal. There is also a coupon for $1 off of 3 boxes of cereal from the May 3rd paper, making each box $1.67. Time to stock up people! :) I ordered several of these coupons from Coupons by Dede and I know they have plenty left...but order them today so you can get them before the sale ends!

There were a lot of other great deals at Price Chopper today, and as soon as I get a minute I'll write them down.

30% Off Gymboree Coupon

Gymboree has a 30% off everything coupon right now good from May 14th-17th. It can be used on clearance items and at the Gymboree Outlet. I absolutely adore Gymboree clothes...but really can't stand the Gymboree price! This will be a great coupon to use on their clearnace items..

Sam's Club Free Pass

Sam's Club is offering a free one day pass...plus they are going to waive their 10% surcharge they normally charge for a deal like this. It expires May 25th. We are Costco members at our house, but there are certain things at Sam's that are not at Costco. I'm planning on using this one day pass to get things like my favorite Ranch Powder and Chicken and Beef Bullion. I'm just going to wander through the aisles too to see what other gems I can find. Have fun!

Coupon Websites

One of my favorite websites to find coupons for is The Coupon Mom. Right now there are some exceptionally good coupons to print too. It is a free service, but you do have to sign up with an email address. I had someone come up and ask me if I give out my email address to get coupons. The answer is yes...but I don't give them my "friends and family" email. Instead I signed up for another email that I use specifically for signing up for things, like coupons. I highly recommend it. The Coupon Mom also has a blog where she lists all the great deals each week for the 3 major drug stores: CVS, Walgreens, and Rite Aid. It comes in very handy. Go visit this site, print some great coupons, and see what else the Coupon Mom has to offer. She was also on Oprah several months ago. Here is part of the video from that show:

Okay, so maybe I'm not as "back" as I would like to be. Sorry I didn't post any of the grocery deals last Wednesday! But I'm here to make up for it. Click here to print a coupon for $4 off two entrees at the Olive Garden...for a total of $8 off!!! Hooray! I cannot tell you how much I adore the portabello mushroom raviolis at Olive Garden! Delish! The coupon expires May 24th, so you only have two weeks to cash in on this deal. Date night here I come!

***Correction...the coupon expires May 27th. Thanks Amy for the heads up, seeing as how my head isn't working properly at the moment...I'm just going to blame the pregnancy :)
