By: Donna Chaffins | Date: May 15, 2015 | Categories: Coupons, Food, Giveaways, Recipes

It’s spring, but it feels more like summer here already with temps in the upper 80s and low 90s this week. I’m not complaining (not yet, anyway), but it seems like we went straight from winter to summer. One thing I love eating in the summer (or when the temps are warm) is salads. I […]

My niece contracted MRSA after she had her son (during the C-Section), and it was some scary stuff. Scary. Stuff. It’s not something I want to ever deal with… and my son is too important […]
