ATM Recycles Electronics for Cash

Photo credit: CNNMoney.com

Do you have old cell phones at home? Would you like to recycle them for cash? Keep reading!

Here’s how it works: You place your device in the machine, while a little robot man talks soothingly about what he’s doing — scanning the phone to get its specs and figure out what it’ll be worth. It then throws out a price — anywhere from something like $6 for an old BlackBerry or $250 for an iPhone 4S —

There are currently 185 of these machines in 13 states, but the founder hopes to have thousands in the very near future.

Skip the drive through. Check out the real McDonald's Egg McMuffin recipe:

 

Cook Time: 30-60 min

Celebrate the 40th birthday of the McDonald's McMuffin with this recipe.

  • 1 Egg, Grade A Large, cracked
  • 1 slice Canadian bacon
  • 1 English muffin, toasted
  • 1 slice American cheese
  • As needed Margarine Spread
  • In a non slick pan over medium heat lightly spray the pan with a vegetable oil spray

    Place a ring mold in the center of the pan and add the cracked egg and break the yolk

    Add a small amount of water (approximately ¼ Cup) to the panaround the outside the ring and cover the pan with a lid to allow the egg to steam, approximately 3 -4 minutes

    Slice and toast the English muffin and lightly spread with the margarine

    When the egg is cooked, carefully remove it from the pan and the ring and set aside. Remove excess waterfrom the pan (if any). Place the pan back on the burner and add the Canadian bacon to quickly warm through

    Putting it Together:

    Place the cheese down first on the bottom half of the English muffin, then place the Round Egg, then the Canadian bacon and lastly the English muffin top.

    Bakerella: New Toy Kits Cake Pops

    I have been a Bakerella fan for a long time. I subscribe to her newsletter and when I found out she has a new toy line coming out, I was so excited!

    From her newsletter:

    This is The Ultimate Cake Pops Set and it comes with a sweet cake pop stand, cake pop tray, mixing bowl, dipping bowl, cake crumbler, and presses to help you make four different cake pop shapes. And there’s lollipop sticks and an instructional placemat, too.

    Just grab some cake, frosting and candy coating and kids can start creating.

    They’ll call it an excuse to play with their food. And I hope they have a blast doing it.

    This is going to be very high on many wish lists this Christmas!
