This giveaway is by make ahead meals for busy moms!!

When I heard that Abby Dodge was coming out with another cookbook, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it!  I have made so many wonderful recipes from her cookbook The Weekend Baker!

Abby’s newest cookbook Desserts 4 Today, has 125 recipes with only 4 ingredients!  Her book is divided into 5 sections:  Cookies, Creamy Desserts, Frozen Desserts, Fruit Desserts, and Pastry Desserts.   When I saw her recipe and photo of her Nutella Fudge Brownies, I knew I had to try them!  They were so yummy!  Perfect for chocoholics like me who don’t want to eat a huge dessert with 1,000 calories!  Check out my photo!  I love the combination of chocolate and hazel nuts!

In our house we always have yogurt on hand. Some days that is all my 2 year old will eat! We have a few favorites and Yoplait is my all-time favorite brand. They have been advertising a great feature with some of their yogurts lately, freezing them! What a great treat!!
I was very excited when I was asked to review the new Yoplait Splitz.

So, First I hit the Yoplait website  to see what it was all about and I found out that It is yogurt that tastes like a sundae!!!!! Are you as excited as I am?
It gets better… It is wholesome and nutritious! It has only about 90 calories, no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial sweeteners or flavors, a good source of calcium and Vitamin D.
Pop it in the freezer for an extra special treat. The Splitz come in three yummy flavors: Rainbow Sherbet, Strawberry Banana Split, and Strawberry Sundae.

I won!!


I had a really crumby day today but I found out I won not one but two $10.00 Target Gift Cards!!  The sweet ladies over @ Spectacular Savings and SI Money Savers hosted a donation giveaway on their sites!! It went along with my Donation Monday posts. They both sent me emails to tell me I had won the Gift Card from both of them. It really brighten a gloomy day.

I had the best time donating with them!! I have learned life lessons and made some great blogging buddies. Helping others should just come naturally to all people can’t understand why it doesn’t??

I did not do it to be rewarded (the reward was knowing I was helping someone) but God knew what I needed today and that through it all my eyes need to remain on him and not be turned away to other people! He has showed me he is still in charge and I need to CHILL!! 🙂

I hope you all have a blessed day and I hope you continue to donate or if you haven’t started I will meet you back here on monday for Donation Monday!!!
