In the Kitchen With Molly














Need a hand in the kitchen? Molly can help.


From planning meals to putting them on the table, feeding a family is a big job. In the Kitchen With Molly is the next best thing to having a personal chef.


This new E-Book contains 12 weeks of menu plans, one for each month of the year, plus shopping lists and printable recipe cards. With the planning done for you, you'll have more time to spend enjoying your family or tackling other projects that need your attention.


And with Molly, the focus is always on frugality. These recipes not only save you time, but they also save you money. Trimming dollars from the grocery bill can add up to a significant difference in the family budget, and having meals planned means you'll eat out less often. That's good for your wallet and your waistline.


A Look Back at the
March 2010 Digest:
Spring Is in the Air ~ Frugal Choices Everywhere!


March brings us a

most wonderful time

of the year! You do have a welcoming, colorful, and happy backyard, don't you? If it needs a little work, keep reading!

Spring is the season of anticipation. Start a few seeds, try a new recipe, make a fresh start, and enjoy every minute. This is a prime season for you as a "keeper at home" to refocus and define your priorities as you realize just how much you can do with what God has given you.

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year! The birds are singing, the bees are buzzing, and the hummingbirds are humming. Just when I think I can't take one more dreary winter day, spring finally arrives. 


There is just something about the leaves budding on the trees and chirping baby birds outside my window that brings a feeling of a fresh start! Spring also means spring training, and the start of baseball season evokes feelings of slower-paced days with my family out in the sun. 


In this week's newsletter, you'll find recipes, crafts, and activities for spring.

Easy Fruit Salad


One of my favorite things to eat when the weather warms up is fruit salad. It's easy and can be used as a side dish or a dessert.




1 small (2-pound) pineapple, cut into chunks
6 seedless clementine oranges, peeled, separated into segments
1/3 pound strawberries, sliced
2 kiwifruit, peeled, halved lengthwise, cut into slices
1/2 bunch of grapes (red or green)
1 banana, sliced



  1. Mix fruit in a large bowl.
  2. Chill and serve.

The possibilities for making fruit salad are endless. You can substitute your favorite fruits. Sometimes we throw in a few blueberries or substitute peaches for the oranges. To make it more like desert just mix in a little whipped cream or yogurt.  Enjoy!


How to Make a Bath Fizzy



Here is a video tutorial on how to make your own bath fizzies. Kids love bath fizzies because they make bath time fun. Moms love bath fizzies because they make our skin soft. This would be a great project for the kids, or to make for Mom for Mother's Day.
