I love cooking as I’m sure you’ve guessed if you’ve visited my site before. All three of my children grew up in the kitchen and I want my grand-kids to learn to cook as well. I’ve been blessed to have Abby live with us and as soon as she could walk and stand she has been in the kitchen with me “helping” me prepare meals. While she is too young to cook at 3, she already knows which ingredients go with certain meals. She will ask questions such as why do you put this in there and why do you put that in there and I tell her because it’s healthy and it makes you grow big and strong. Her response is always “but I’m already a big girl”…

Anyhow, the reason I love Barilla Whole Grain is because it’s HEALTHY and it TASTE DELICIOUS. Cooking healthy meals is important to me. I have to consider that no matter how healthy a meal is that I cook, if no one likes it, it’s not going to be eaten. I didn’t have to worry about that with the Barilla Whole Grain products. Everyone loved the taste of the meals and each ingredient I incorporated into them. Plus, an added benefit is that Barilla Whole Grain is a natural fiber. With Abby’s little tummy problems she has at times, Barilla Whole Grain keeps her “going”.

We have really enjoyed trying different recipes at Barilla. I’m going to share the latest one we enjoyed below.

Online Shopping Price Comparison, Product Reviews and Hot Deals on Become.com

Online Shopping

Have you heard of Become.com yet? The first time I visited this website was over the weekend. I’ve been visiting it a lot since. I’m amazed at all of their price comparisons. Become.com is a neat website for online shopping price comparison. They compare prices which saves you/me time and money. You can find just about anything at Become.com from a cheap cowbell to a cheap fireplace.

They have so many cheap cowbells listed, I’ve never even heard of some of the types of cowbells they have. You can find anything from Metal Cowbells to Toca Pro Line Cowbell Black Copper Cowbells. Beside each item at Become.com it tells you where the best priced item is and it also tells the price and if it is in stock. What a helpful site! If you search for electric cheap fireplace inserts (or any item), it gives you the option to find by type, find by product, find by user rating, find by category and so on… When I was browsing I saw a lovely Estate Design Brogan 32 in. Cherry Compact Electric Fireplace. It showed that I could purchase it from Sears, it showed me the price and it even had a trusted merchant icon on it. That is helpful to know.

You can save even more money by visiting the Become.com coupon selection. Coupons are a great way to save money. With price comparison and coupons you could save some serious money on Become.com. Even without the coupons you could save a bundle just by having the best prices available to you. When I selected electric fireplace coupons the first one that popped up was “Get Free Shipping & NO Sales Tax on your Fireplace Order”; free shipping & no sales tax, wow!

If you are looking for a great place to shop online where you don’t have to do your own comparison shopping, be sure to check out Become.com.
