Kisses from Mickey...
Saturday was my birthday, so what better place to spend it than at Disney World!
Kisses from Mickey...
...And a sweet treat to enjoy while watching the parade, a mickey shaped Rise Krispie covered in chocolate and peanut butter chips!

Bath and Body Works has a great sale going on right now! Their 14.5 oz Large 3 wick candles are on sale from $19.50 each to 2/$20, and there are a couple good coupons out that pair with this nicely. This weekend only, if you LIKE them on facebook, you can request an email coupon for a free 2oz lotion of their new scent, Malibu Heat. And also, there is a $10/30 coupon here good through April 22nd. I was able to purchase 3 candles, and the small lotion for only $20! (Well, $21.30 after taxes.)
I put together a copy-cat recipe of the delicious hot dogs at Diseny Worlds Magic Kingdom Casey's Corner a couple of months ago. Kristin at CouponingToDisney.com has been kind enough to share this recipe with her readers and I wanted to share it with those of you who missed it before. Be sure to check it out for a quick and yummy dinner! (Great for those of you running around, especially now that baseball season is starting!)
Target has most of their Easter goodies between 50-70% off. Also be sure to check the dollar spot, my store was at 70% off. I was able to pick up some jelly beans for $1.09 a bag, Almond M&M's for $1.59 a bag, and some cute post it notes and lip gloss for stocking stuffers (yes, I'm talking for Christmas!). Be sure to have a look around your store, there are deals to be had!
After reading about baking mats on a blog last week and amazing they are, I had to give them a try. Cutlery & More had their Nonstick Baking Mats marked down as the Deal of the Week, and I paid $30 (with the $5.95 shipping) for 4 of them! These retail for $14.99 on Amazon, so I got a great price!
_The idea of these mat's are you use them on your cookie sheet for baking, so you don't have to spray it with non-stick, or line it with parchment paper. The mats them make your food pop off easily, and can be rinsed off and reused.
I tested these out with dinner, a cheesy, sauce filled, pepperoni calzone. I don't remember where I saw this recipe, but its really easy to make. I used Pillsbury pizza dough, rolled it out and layerd my toppings of sauce, cheese and pepperoni down the middle. Then I folded in the sides in a criss-cross pattern, and baked at 425 for about 10 minutes.
As you can see, there was cheese and sauce all over the mat, but the calzone came right off with a spatula. I took the mat over to the sink and all the mess just washed right off, no scrubbing needed! I'm in LOVE with these things, and I'm sure they'll make cookies and everything so much easier!
It's been a little bit since I posted a shopping trip for groceries. I've been using from my pantry trying to clean it out a bit, and picking up produce and milk as needed. Today I made a trip to Walmart, without any coupons! Most of the items I used price matching on.
