Christmas in July: Two Girls and an Oven

 

Christmas in July is here and so is my new book, Two Girls and an Oven.

This sweet, easy reading, novella takes place in a bakery during the Holidays. At the end, you will find cookie recipes from the book. Take a look into the life of Nat...

Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Nat, a single mother of one, baker, and business owner. Life has been crazy but worth every second of craziness. Let me try to explain.

It has been me and my beautiful daughter, Summer, for many years, which is why I chose the name, Two Girls And An Oven for my beloved bakery.

Business has been slow, and bills are piling up. My hope was that with Thanksgiving and Christmas coming up, I would have a line of customers pounding down the doors.

Then, it happened. Cookies. Yes, cookies happened. You've got to be curious as to how twelve weeks of cookies saved my life, right? Prepare yourself for the story of a lifetime!

Tip: If you ever see a plate of cookies sitting outside your door, take them and run!

So Delicious coupons and product review

 

 

After I decided to switch to a plant-based diet, the fun began. I now, had to find food items that I could eat. My husband actually found the So Delicious cashew milk ice cream. I was skeptical at first because I had tried several nut milk ice creams in the past. 

But, I never give up! The chocolate variety has quickly become my go-to fave, but they are all delicious. I reached out to the company and asked if they would be willing to send me coupons and they were happy to oblige. 

They have other items besides their ice cream, but if I am being honest, my intent is to use the coupons for that. :)

Please give their products a chance  So Delicious website and let me know what you think!

Making memories with an ice cream float

 


I was flipping through a magazine the other day and saw an article on a Root Beer float. That brought me back to when I was a child and I remembered that my mom used to enjoy Root Beer floats.

I decided to make an ice cream float for my daughter after I realized she has never tried one. Typically, we do not keep soda in the house, but I remembered I had some Ginger Ale in the fridge that I asked my husband to pick up for an upset stomach I had a few days ago. Score!  

We had some waffle cone ice cream in the freezer, which I thought would pair perfectly with the Ginger Ale. So, off we went to make a special treat.

First, we poured our soda into a tall glass. Then, we added two scoops of ice cream and finished it off with a red straw.  

 

As you can see by the picture she was a happy girl!

On a side note, we should all have a great ice cream scoop in our kitchen. I have two perfect options for you here:

Tupperware (with Kathy) 

Pampered Chef (with Laura) 

You can pair all types of soda and ice cream flavors together to come up with the perfect combination for you.

Organic Girl coupons and product review

 

I am so pleased with Organic Girl products and customer service! We purchase their fresh spinach or spring mix every week. Unlike other organic greens, theirs come already washed and ready to eat!

I emailed the company telling them how much we enjoy their products and they were so kind to send coupons. They responded the same day I reached out and were genuinely HAPPY to send me the coupons. 

As I was poking around their site, I see that they also offer organic salad dressings and I have to say, they look delicious! 

Thank you, thank you, thank you for treating me like the most important customer on the earth. Please visit their site Organic Girl and let me know what you think!

Healthy food coupons: Have you seen them?

Healthy food coupons...have you seen them?

 


 

I have several important question to ask you... Are you a couponer? Do you clip coupons from the Sunday paper or maybe print them from online? 

Years ago, I was a huge couponer. As time went on, I have remained frugal with my grocery choices, but stopped clipping coupons. I recently started again and quickly realized that there are little to no coupons for healthy, organic foods. 

My diet has changed for the good over the last 10 years and I am now plant-based and choose to purchase organic food options. 

In an effort to save money on food, because the prices have gone up over the last year and a half, I ordered the Sunday paper and started clipping coupons again. I have found coupons for kitchen and bathroom items, but nothing for produce or other healthy food options.

I decided to reach out to the companies that we purchase from weekly. I emailed or submitted a comment on their online form. I explained how we love their products and asked if they would be willing to send us coupons. 

I am happy to share that they were happy to do it! The next series of blog posts will be about the companies who were happy to send us coupons to help us continue to eat healthy and save money.
