Groupon


Have you heard of Groupon??


I've been a member for a few weeks now and figured I spread the love on to you. Basically it works like this....

You sign up and pick a city (I'd pick the one closest to where you live, shop or eat!) and everyday they send you an email with a shop, restaurant, salon or spa that is offering a service or certificate for an UNBEATABLE price!!!!

Just like any good DEAL there is fine print so make sure to read it....some shops only allow you to use one certificate at a time, or maybe you can only use them on certain days. But heck, if I am saving 78%, I'll come in and get a facial on a Tuesday evening.....my face doesn't care what day it is!!!!!

Oh....and they ONLY offer a LIMITED number of these DEALS!! Once they sell out....they sell out and you have to wait until tomorrow's DEAL!

So what are you waiting for??? Go check out Groupon!!!! And don't forget....if you don't like SPAM or those pesky enlargement of certain body part emails you may want to sign up with that "sign-up" account like I mention HERE or HERE!

Target home decor 75% off & Sesame Street


The Wizard just called and said that Target has LOTS of their Home Decor items such as bedding and area rugs at 75% off!!

While we are talking about Target...

Have you ever checked out their $1 bins?

Those are the bins right there when you walk in...check them out next time if you've never. I've picked up a few things for my daughter's Big Top Circus Party I am planning. When my friend Sara told me she was planning a Sesame Street Theme for Even's 1st Birthday I started to keep any eye out. Wouldn't you know it...the VERY next week I saw TONS of Sesame Street stuff in the $1 bins!

Here's a pic of some of Sara's DEALS she picked up this week....


The Dollar Tree also has some Sesame Street stuff right now too!!

CAKEPOPS

This isn't a STEAL, DEAL or HEEL...

it's our Valentine TREAT for you!!!



So today I tried attempt #3 at cakepops.

Attempt #1 failed I am pretty sure because the icing I used was almost 3 years old....YUCK!

Attempt #2 failed because I didn't even have half of the correct ingredients and tried to improvise...

Here is attempt #3....



Let me first say I got my inspiration from Bakerella. Never heard of her....go check her out!! I did alter the recipe a tad but not as much as attempt #2!

Here is what you need:

Red Velvet Cake Mix
Wilton Candy Melts (Bakerella uses chocolate bark)
Cream Cheese Frosting
Any sort of sprinkle or colored sugar
lollipop sticks (from Michael's)
lollipop bags (from Michael's)
ribbon to tie the bags
styro foam or something to keep them upright in the freezer
wax paper

If you are not giving them away, as we were, you really don't need the lollipop sticks or bags or foam....just pop them in your mouth!

Mix and bake the cake according to the directions




let cool or you will burn your little fingers on the next step

can someone PLEASE tell me why ALL my cakes fall apart like this????


crumble the cake in a bowl with your hands...this is VERY messy!



mix in the icing....it calls for the whole 16oz tub but I would say 3/4 of it would do...this is even messier!!

no....that is NOT a Valentine's Day french manicure....more like a red velvet manicure!


scoop out spoonfuls and roll in to balls


I decided to place them in the freezer for 45 minutes on the wax paper before putting the sticks in because they were so moist that the stick was going straight thru the ball


after they have chilled for 45 minutes put each ball on a stick and place the stick in the styro foam...put them in the freezer as soon as you can


I left mine in the freezer for about an hour


melt the Wilton melts (or bark) dip each one...the coating hardens pretty quick so dip into your sprinkles right away


place back in the styro foam continue with the rest


Make sure to leave the balls not being dipped in the freezer until you are ready to dip them so that they stay firm!

Since the coating hardens so fast you can serve or bag them within minutes.

To fancy them up I knotted ribbons around them!


ENJOY!

Happy Valentine's Day!
