I absolutely love sorbet! I love strawberry, raspberry, lemon, blackberry...you name, I love it! It's such a refreshing, healthy, and easy to make treat and it is so good. No matter how you prepare it or where you get it, sorbet is one of those treats that is good just about any time. The smooth, yet icy consistency with either whole fruit or seedy bits makes it that much more indulgent. I cold literally eat sorbet every day and not have a care in the world.

I'm a total sweets girl, and I go for what I know. You can never go wrong with Rice Krispy Treats. They take everyone back to that nostalgic, playful childhood place and are super quick and easy to prepare. It's literally three ingredients and they are ready in less than 10 mins. They hold up very well under hot or cold conditions, and at super cheap to prepare.

How do you save money at the grocery store?

Tenns Reid

I comprise a list of needed items, in addition to using coupons, as well as apps on my phone to compare prices among stores. The important thing is to have a well laid out plan when it comes to grocery shopping and not just do it on a whim. Also, never go grocery shopping when you're hungry! It makes for buying things just because your hungry, and not things that you actually need. Do a weekly inventory, make a list, stick to it, and use coupons!
