EXPIRED-Amazon Deal: Save 5% Saturday Only (Up to $15 Savings)

Today only you can use free Price Check by Amazon App to Save 5% (up to $5) on up to three qualifying products at Amazon in the eligible categories: electronics, toys, music, sporting goods, and DVDs.

All you have to do is download the Android Price Check by Amazon app or iPhone Price Check by Amazon app and use it to scan a barcode at a physical retail store today only to receive your discount. Then place any qualifying item (has a yellow “Get Deal” button next to Amazon price) to your cart using the Price Check app. Complete your purchase within 24 hours and you’ll get that 5% discount on up to three qualifying items.

I find that Amazon is almost always cheaper than other stores.

    * While you are out shopping, you may optionally provide the Price Check App the in-store advertised price of a qualifying product in the eligible product categories (Electronics, Toys, Sports, Music, and DVDs).
    * Place a qualifying product (shipped and sold by Amazon.com) into the shopping cart within the Price Check App.
    * Within twenty-four (24) hours of placing a qualifying product in your Price Check App shopping cart, complete your purchase from any Amazon channel (Price Check App, Amazon website, or other Amazon apps). If you do not make your purchase within this time period, the discount will expire.
    * Your discount of 5% off Amazon’s Price (up to a maximum of $5.00*), will be automatically applied at checkout within the Price Check App.

Holiday Project: Cookie Exchange Edition

Ok, I have to start @ the beginning. I love baking and my family and I have been getting together for several years for our annual cookie exchange. Last year I made oatmeal/chocolate chip cookies and they turned out great. This year, I decided to try and make Magic Bars, that I found on the Very Best Baking web site.

Major fail. The crumb bottom didn't set up right and they turned into concrete. :( I was so disappointed, especially after investing a lot of money into ingredients to make 96 bars!

So, I had to go to Plan B. As the cookie exchange is on Saturday, I was running out of time. So despite searching high and low for a "fool proof" cookie recipe, I gave up and went to my fall back- fudge:

I found 2 amazing recipes, one I had made last year (so I knew it was good). The peanut butter one on left is Alton Brown's recipe. This is the best peanut butter fudge I have ever had and very easy to make.

On right, is Carnation Famous Fudge w/o the nuts.

Both turned out amazing, I am happy to say.




And here is how I packaged them:

To package everything up, I got Ziploc holiday containers on sale @ Target with a coupon and used aluminum foil to separate the layers of chocolate and peanut better. I am enclosing them in the holiday reusable bag shown. I picked up 6 bags, 75% off @ Pier One last year.

So, in the end, it worked out. I just hope the girls don't mind it isn't cookies! Maybe next year they can call it "Cookie/Fudge Exchange". :)

BTW, if anyone has any good cookie recipes I can use next year, I would love to hear them! Please post a comment, thanks!
