Brownie on plate

Low Fat Vegan BrowniesI really like cooking low fat vegan because not only is it 'guilt free' (though I've never understood the idea of feeling 'guilty' for eating) but it actually makes me feel OK or good physically vs. regular brownies which leave one feeling bloated, heavy, etc. I found this recipe at the site Vegan Envy. It is super easy to make and tastes great.


finished Herbed Chicken Quarters with Smashed Potatoes on platter

Herbed Chicken Quarters with Smashed PotatoesI love making a large amount of roasted meats and veggies on a big sheet pan. It's such a time saver and it looks great presented on the table, as is, on the baking sheet. Gently smashing the potatoes before you put them in the oven allows the lovely meat and veggie juices to flavour them, while keeping them firm and intact. You can use any types of additional veggies you like along with the chicken and potatoes. I used carrots, celery, onions and garlic. This cost about $5 for 4 people. I like to serve it with a nice crusty rustic bread.

Paint a Flower Pot Saucer that Doesn't Match Pot  - pot with slight white accents and painted saucer

Paint a Flower Pot Saucer that Doesn't Match PotFlower pots and saucers are sold separately. I knew I had a saucer at home so I didn't buy a new one. When I went home, the saucer didn't match the pot. You can revamp the saucer with a little bit of paint and it pairs nicely with the accents of the pot. I was able to save the $1-2 on a saucer, and use an existing one.


Replacing Your Watch Battery - face of the watch after battery has been replaced

Replacing Your Watch BatteryI always took my watches to the jeweler to have them replace the battery, at a cost of $8-$15. I saw watch batteries for the first time at Dollar Tree, and decided that I would try to replace them myself. Dollar Tree sold them 4 to a pack, which ends up being 25 cents to fix a watch.
