If you haven't signed up already, don't discount Swagbucks. I've now won over $200 in Amazon giftcards since January plus also been able to donate some of the bucks I won to causes.  You can 'win' swagbucks through searching, special offers (look on the homepage), and swagcodes.  Check the Swagbucks Swidget to the right of this page for the codes, and if you haven't signed up yet, click my special referral link.

Giveaway: Monkeyshiners Bib Clip or Pacifier Leash

I'm first giveaway! I found Monkeyshiners Baby Accessories and first ordered a bib clip for convenience purposes-- we keep it hooked to my baby's diaper bag, for the 50% of the time I forget a bib when we are at a friend's house or restaurant. All we have to do is clip a napkin to it, and instant bib. Later, same baby liked to drop her ring backed teethers in the road during walks, causing me to look frantically for it. I figured a pacifier leash would pay for itself with just one lost teether, so again Monkeyshiners Baby Accessories came to the rescue!

There are many other accessories in her store, including diaper clutches and cloth doll diapers. to the giveaway!  Monkeyshiners has kindly provided a Bib Clip or Pacifier Leash OR $5 off any purchase from her store!!!

Freezer Meal Recipe: Chicken Cannelloni with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

My husband doesn't like red sauce (known to the rest of the world as tomato sauce), so when I saw this recipe that uses red pepper sauce instead of tomato, I knew I had to try it! In doing so I learned a super easy way to make a sauce that's different from the jars I usually buy (still have yet to get the nerve to can my own).

Basically the Roasted Red Pepper Sauce calls for mixing a drained jar of roasted red peppers with a jar of Alfredo sauce and some Parmesan cheese. I did this the first time. Since then I got more creative and mixed in my own heavy cream, butter, garlic and Parmesan cheese in a pan until melted, and then blended it with the peppers. Yum!

For the Cannelloni you mixed cooked chopped chicken, chive & onion cream cheese, spinach, mozzarella, breadcrumbs and garlic together, and then stuff into cooked cannelloni or manicotti.

Oh, and check in tomorrow for MY FIRST EVER GIVEAWAY!!!
