How you simplifying your summer?  It’s so hot here in Chicago, so the simpler dinner can be; the happier mom is.  Simply Potatoes does just that for dinner time.  First of all, there is the convenience.  There is no peeling, slicing, dicing or mashing potatoes.  Open the bag and that’s it.   They are better for you.  Their cut potatoes and steamables are all fat free, cholesterol free and 90 calories or less per serving.  Simply Potatoes has a ton of variety.  It is available in a number of mashed and cut varieties, delicious right out of the microwave, off the grill or added to your family’s favorite dish. Click here to see a full list of products.  Lastly, all of the potato products are gluten free (Simply Macaroni & Cheese contains wheat).
Best of all, I’ve tried several of their varieties and they are all good.  I personally love the Steakhouse Potatoes.  They are just soooo good.  I can only highly recommend trying out Simply Potatoes!

Epsilon Digital Kitchen Scale

Epsilon_mainThe Epsilon digital kitchen scale features an award winning stainless steel design that is sure to look good in any kitchen. The scale even features a convenient curved back, allowing it to hang from a number of kitchen rack systems. The large platform and touch key panel are easy to clean as well – just wipe down with a damp cloth. A kitchen timer is also built-in for extra convenience.

I found this scale very easy to use and very accurate too. My kitchen is stainless steel, so it matches perfectly! I love being able to hang this scale, so I always know where it is. I also loved the built in timer, because I never have one when I need one!

If you are needing a new kitchen scale, I highly recommend checking out the Epsilon Digital Kitchen Scale!

30 Meals in One Day Giveaway

If you are busy like me, dinner time can be such a hassle.  How would you like to spend one day cooking for an entire month?  That is where 30 Meals in One Day comes in.  Everything you need for once a month cooking is here, all in one place.  You just spend just one day in the kitchen preparing freezer meals and stock your freezer with lots of delicious freedom at family dinner time.  It makes grocery shopping and couponing quite easy!

I know, but how are the recipes.  They are great.  There is definitely something for everyone, because there are over 150 recipes to choose from.  I love how the book lets you know what foods to put in the freezer and which ones you really shouldn’t.  You will find things like Pork Chops and Potatoes, Tuna Bow Ties, Tortilla Chicken, etc.  Those are just a few of the great recipes.  Chapter 14 is a must read for all the great shortcut tips too!  The best part of this cookbook is that you can just make these recipes to serve for dinner tonight!  Like this site, it uses ingredients you will most likely find in your home too!

Now, the book is great, but the software that also comes with it is awesome.  All the recipes in the cookbook are already loaded into the software.  Here is where the magic happens.  Not only can you make menus in the software, you can make your grocery shopping list!!!!  It will list every ingredient you need for all the recipes that you’ve chosen.  How awesome is that?  I also love that I can easily include my own recipes in the software, so it also includes those in my grocery shopping list!  You can then print out the list at your convenience.  The software is super easy to use.

Since I absolutely love this book and software, I have arranged for one lucky reader of mine to get their own Dinner is Ready cookbook and software.  Here’s what you need to do:
