Spice Up Your Life by Bindu Grandhi *A Cookbook Giveaway*

I am pleased to introduce my readers to a new flavorful cookbook from author Bindu Grandhi! Spice Up Your Life is a wonderful collection of easy-to-prepare recipes that feature healthy flexitarian ingredients (fruits, vegetables, lentils, legumes, nuts, chicken, fish and spices). These dishes are very unique and promise to pack lots of flavor! Check out this tasty recipe from the book:

Garlic and Chili Cheese Toast

Prep Time: 10 minutes Toasting Time: 15–20 minutes Serves: 4 (2 slices per person)

1 loaf of preferred bread, sliced (e.g., multigrain or white)

4 c. reduced-fat sharp (white or yellow) cheddar cheese,* shredded

4 green chilies, finely chopped (less if you prefer a mild taste)

3 cloves of fresh garlic, minced

1/2 tsp. salt, or salt to taste

1/2 tsp. black pepper

1/4 tsp. red chili powder

1. Combine all the ingredients above in a medium mixing bowl. Blend well and spoon 1/2 c. of the mixture onto each slice.

2. In a toaster oven, toast slices on medium/medium-high setting and serve hot.

This recipe is just one of many that will be sure to get your family excited about eating healthy! Good-for-you food doesn't have to be boring!

My husband can fix anything, so instead of paying loads of money for a mechanic to fix our car, he usually does the work himself. Advance Auto Parts is a store we frequent, so I was excited to hear about this $10 off a $25 purchase coupon. Hopefully it will come in handy for some of you as well! Just enter the sweepstakes and you'll get a prompt to print your coupon once you fill in your information.

Thanks, Penny Pinching Diva!

I'm Back!

I'm home from vacation and feeling very well rested! Our family had a wonderful time in South Carolina. I highly recommend checking out Huntington Beach State Park if you're ever in the Myrtle Beach area--some of the most beautiful scenery I've ever come across.

Look for many posts this week including a giveaway!
