Publix Love to Shop Here, Love to Save Here Event ( 7/17 – 8/6) #LoveToGrillHere #PlatefullCoOp #spon

Don’t you just love it when sales last longer than a week?. The Publix Love to Shop Here, Love to Save Here event lasts for month than a month!. Enjoy great savings from July 17 to August 6 and stock up for Summer.

I am really enjoying this season. I can wake up an hour later, the days are longer and all the family is enjoying the gorgeous Miami weather. My grill has been working overtime since we are getting the nice breeze from the water right in our backyard.

Thankfully the Summer lasts a few weeks because we are really enjoying every minute of it. When we are not on the beach, grilling or camping, our meals are quick and convenient. Time we spend indoors is time wasted!. That’s why Publix is helping us out with the following sales:



Hamburger Helper $1

Betty Crocker Potatoes $1

Plus there are some great coupons to save even more on our favorite summer dishes:

$1/4 Betty Crocker Potatoes Printable

$1/4 Hamburger Helper Printable

So with these printables you end up paying just $0.75 each when you buy 4. Great stockup idea because you can cook some easy and convenient meals everyday of the week for much less.

What I love about Hamburger Helper is that now it comes with more flavors like Crunchy Taco and Crispy Buffalo Chicken. So you can add your own fresh ingredients like Chicken Breasts, veggies, Ground Beef, shredded cheese and create different meals very quickly and easily.

The less you spend on Hamburger Helper, the more you can spend on quality meats, cheeses and veggies.

And if you’re doing some grillin’ , what better sides than fresh shucked corn and Betty Crocker Potatoes Au Gratin?. They are so easy and delicious to make that it’s a no brainer. Here’s an idea: Put your hubby on the grill and you do the potatoes. Just add some milk and butter and  you’ll have a gourmet meal in less time than you think. And now Betty Crocker has 20% more potatoes per box so it will feed big appetites.publix-love-to-shop-here-love-to-save-here-event-1

Need some ideas?. Make my delicious Beer Can Chicken Recipe. It’s a hit in my house and I promise your family will love it too.

Remember to take advantage of the Publix Love To Shop Here, Love To Save Here event and score delicious and easy meals for less. I will definitely need a second helping of those potatoes. Maybe next week I’ll add some nice fresh herbs and create a whole new dish.

FoodSaver Review – The New Great Way To Keep Food Fresh Longer!

“Disclosure: I received a complimentary FoodSaver to facilitate my review. However, all opinions are 100% mine and were not influenced in any way”.


FoodSaver Review

FoodSaver is a revolutionary kitchen tool that will save you thousands of dollars every year. How?. Well the FoodSaver is a vacuum sealing system that will keep the air out of your food preserving it for longer periods of time.

The main idea is to buy large quantities of food, specially meats and cheeses and freeze them. If you go to a Supermarket, check out the price per pound for a tray of chicken breasts and compare it to a family size trays located at the end of the meat section. You will notice that buying in bulk will save you more money in the long run and much better if you use coupons.

The new FoodSaver 4800 Series Vacuum Sealer is a 2 in 1 sealing system.The first function works with heat seal bags and rolls for long term storage, and the second function works its retractable accessory adapter performs with vacuum zipper bags, canisters and containers for short term storage. So basically it takes care of your storage needs in one compact machine. 

The heat seal bags come in a roll that can be stored inside the FoodSaver. Just choose the size that you will need and seal. When I buy chicken breasts, I freeze in different sizes and quantities so I can just thaw whatever I need without wasting anything. Usually I get my chicken from Zaycon Foods in 40 lbs. at a time. And the FoodSaver is so quick and easy to use that I can freeze all those chicken breasts in less than 1 hour.


Zip top bags, even the “freezer safe” ones will not prevent freezer burn since they fail to take all the air out. Now with the FoodSaver you can store your meats in the freezer for months and they will be as fresh as the day you bought them. Therefore, eliminating waste.

But the FoodSaver goes beyond freezing foods. It also does a great job with veggies, fruits, lunch meats and cheeses. Their new revolutionary zip top bags make it easy to store all those foods in the fridge and even marinating meats with one simple touch of their retractable accessory adapter.


 Just place your item inside the zipper bag, take the air out manually, close it and then press on the adapter. It will take all the air out without smashing or ruining your food. The photo above is my lunch tomorrow: chicken marinated with garlic powder and worcestershire sauce.

If you are into canning, the FoodSaver has a especial jar attachment that will seal jars filled with salads, jams, jellies and more!. I have yet to try that function but I can’t wait to use it. It works great regular with mason jars.


My favorite feature of this machine is the removable drip tray. When you are sealing all the air out of meats, chickens or fish, their juice or liquid is likely to seep out. The developers of the FoodSaver thought of everything and added a removable drip tray that can be washed after each use making clean up much easier.


See the chicken juice in the picture?. Yuck!. Thankfully I can just wash it over the sink and don’t have to even touch it.

FoodSaver is very compact and comes in stainless steel so it can be placed right on your kitchen counter. It is so fun to use that you’ll want to vacuum everything you buy. My next project will be to make complete meals and freeze them so I can have them on hand any day of the year.

If you’re a penny pinching mom like me, then this machine is for you. It will save you time, money and will prevent food spoilage. I am totally addicted to my FoodSaver and will be keep finding things to preserve.

You can find the FoodSaver and its bags at pretty much every retailer including Amazon.
