    Thanks for the info jabbo22. What brand of flour do you recommend?

  • jabbo22 Apr 2, 2013

    nakobi and smolder13, I agree with jdouglas13 on using a good quality flour for baking. I use mine for cakes, cookies, and a few flavored breads (banana, zucchini, fig, etc). When I use an off brand or the giant bags from BJ's, my baked goods come out denser. Not a bad flavor, but the consistency is off. My 2 cents also. :)

    If anyone orders from scholastic books online let me know. I have a coupon for a free $5.00 book with a $5.00 purchase. 2 books for $5.00!! If someone would like the code email me. First person to email gets it

    jdouglas13-I've been doing a ton of baking recently and I'm interested in how you feel the good flour makes a difference. Is it taste or texture, or both? Also, if you bake bread, do you find that it comes out better with bread flour vs. all purpose? I'm willing to seek out the better stuff if I know it will make a difference.

    Nakabi, just my two cents, but it's worth it to spend a few cents more on the good flour. If you can get Gold Medal, for close to the same price, it would be worth it in the end result. You really can tell the difference when you use good flour. JMHO :)

    Got a good deal at CVS: Used the $4.00 off $20.00 purchase coup, and got the free shampoo, and used some manufacturer's coups, and used $8.00 in Extra Bucks....$27.00 worth for $8.00.

    It is with great sadness/appreciation that I went to Food Lion to buy my last 30 Yoplait yogurt containers today before The Big Deal promo ends tonight.

    FYI - the 40/42 store is well stocked and they dairy guy was filling the shelves when I left. He was putting out tons of the flavors so you still have time to do another round or two...or three before it all ends tonight.

    The good news is that all of it was free thanks to rolling a $2 Catalina from the last purchase and using 2 of the $1/10 coupons from and a .40/6 coupon. We are now set on Yoplait probably into May. My great thanks to Food Lion for this most awesome deal!!!!

    rayne - I post the upcoming coupons we can expect each Sunday on the blog on Thursdays. So this Thursday you can check to see what coupons to expect on Sunday so you know if you got them all. Hope that helps. :-)

    Starting tomorrow at HT the Edy's fruit bars will be on sale 4/$10, and there is a $2 off one coupon on their facebook page... so 50 cents!
