Confession time. Yes, it’s true, we don’t buy most of our Chicken or Ground Beef at Smith’s. I know, it feels like we’re traitors. It’s not that we have something against Smith’s meat; in fact when I’m running low, it’s the first place I turn and I love the Heritage Farm whole chickens and fresh seafood. But, when you see this gorgeous meat you’ll be hooked too. Zaycon is the highest quality meat for the lowest prices anywhere! And, when I saw this incredible deal i just k new I had to share it with you all today.
I just HAD to tell you all about this incredible deal! Ibkt while supplies last or through 2/2, Zaycon Foods is offering a special promo code JOINED99 for NEW sign-ups only to score your chicken breasts for just $0.99/lb when you sign up through this link – That’s INSANE!!!
These Chicken Breasts are Zaycon’s most popular product. They are jumbo, farm-fresh and juicy. They are 100% natural and boneless/skinless. They come direct to you right from the farm (not weeks like in the grocery store), which means they stay fresh longer!
We’ve posted about this company many times over on Coupons4Utah. Their meat is top quality and definitely a tremendous value. See our Chicken review here, and our Beef review here. It’s a great way to get a large amount of meat for a nice value. If you are a smaller family without a freezer, consider going in on an order in with someone. That’s what I do. This meat will NOT disappoint you.
This slow cooker pot roast was on the menu for dinner last night. I wanted to highlight it, because there is a stellar deal on roasts at the Salt Lake City Smith’s stores. Through tomorrow (1/9), you’ll find them on sale for $2.97/lb! Grab a roast for this week, or a couple to freeze and feed your family a delicious meal on the cheap!
Here’s a no-fail roast recipe that literally falls apart every time. First, sear the roast on all sides in olive oil in a large saute pan. Then, put the roast in the crockpot on high. Using the same pan that browned the roast, add 1 can of Campbell’s Golden Mushroom Soup, 2 packets of Lipton Onion Soup mix, and 10 ounces of water (use the empty can of golden mushroom soup for the water). Heat that in the saute pan, whisking until heated through and all the yummy drippings are blended into the soup. Then, pour the soup mix over the roast and cover with the Crock Pot lid cooking on high for 2 hours and dropping to low for the remaining 4 hours. Or, just cook on low for 8 hours.
Now, I personally do not use the packets of Lipton Onion Soup. I make my own homemade variety. The recipe is below, and you can choose to either make your own or use the packets. One recipe of the homemade onion soup mix is equal to ONE packet, so you will need to double the recipe for the roast.
In my opinion, Trottole is the BEST pasta for making homemade mac & cheese. Of course, you can use any pasta you like, but the unique design in this pasta holds the cheese sauce really well. The pasta is included in the Smith’s Buy 5, Save $5 Mega Sale for 69¢ through 1/9, and that is a stock-up price for sure! A few of the items you’ll need to make this recipe are on sale at Smith’s right now, and I have added them to a shopping list at the bottom of this post. Put this on your menu for this week. Your family won’t be disappointed!
I LOVE the Private Selection Italian Trottole Pasta Noodles. The designer spirals, imported from Italy, are so shapely they don’t need a lot of extra ingredients to shine through in a dish. The curls help them hold melted cheese and other sauces very well.
This recipe is simple, and first you will need to make a rue. Rue is melted butter, with flour and salt & pepper whisked into it. Then, you will whisk the milk into the rue. You will continue to cook and whisk the mixture on medium-high heat until the white sauce thickens. Then, melt your cheeses into the white sauce. That’s it! Recipe below:
**Since, I personally am a no-grains, I have a killer Cauliflower Mac & Cheese recipe I make for me. Recipe HERE >>
My daughter came to town and one things she loves is my recipe for Butternut Squash Soup, so we cooked up a batch. We love sharing this soup together and can’t resist making a batch even when it’s the middle so summer. So, I decided to share it with you all too. Save to Facebook or Pin it so you’ll remember it when fall hits. It’s the perfect warm up weather soup! And is healthy and vegan friendly for those on plant based diets.
Adding Cranberries to Butternut Squash Soup might feel like combining two random basket ingredients from an episode of Food Network’s, Chopped, but once you taste it I think you’ll fall in love with this soup too.
First off, I do want to mention one of my favorite products in the kitchen. I’ll be featuring it soon in an episode of “Favorite Friday” on Live Facebook. My Microplane is a kitchen must. I use it so often I actually keep it in my fruit basket on my counter rather than in a drawer. It’s great for hard cheese, zesting citrus fruits, ginger and garlic and using to freshly grate nutmeg is the best! Once you taste nutmeg freshly grated, you won’t go back.
I have recently had to go gluten free and mostly grain free. One of the things I have missed is pizza . I was determined to find an alternative, so I turned to cauliflower pizza crust. I have experimented around with a few recipes and after a few tweaks I’ve found one I really like, and I wanted to share it with you all.
It’s is super convenient to be able to buy it already done for you and cuts preparation time significantly! Look for it in the freezer section. Be sure to up the $0.50/1 digital offer(that can be used up to 5 times in ONE transaction), and you can score these 12 ounce bags of Kroger riced cauliflower for $1.69 each!
I like my crust a bit more on the browned and crunchy side. All I did was cook it a little longer. Do what you like best.
This week Smith’s has large dozen eggs on sale for just 77¢ (limit 4 per transaction). We use A LOT of eggs in my house and I always have between 4 and 6 dozen in my refrigerator. One of my easy go to family favorite meals for dinner is quiche. It’s so simple to whip up, and you can really add anything you want to spice it up from veggies, meats to even leftovers.
Here’s a basic cheese quiche recipe. You can simply bake it in your pie crust like this or add whatever ingredients you want to it before cooking. Last night, I made a bacon & ham quiche for the breakfast meat lovers in my family. Then, I made an asparagus and spinach quiche for my daughter and I. A lot of quiche recipes call for frozen spinach, but I prefer to use fresh. There’s a lot less less prep and it tastes better. I simply chop it up fine and throw it in! Plus, Smith’s has the 8 ounce bags of Dole spinach included in the buy 5 save $5 mega sale for just $0.99 through 3/21.
Most of the time I make my own pie crust (it’s really not difficult), but this time I opted for the easy way and bought frozen pie crusts. If you buy store-bought I would suggest getting the deep dish variety. The regular 9″ shells never seem to be quite deep enough to hold all the egg mixture. Whether you decide to do homemade or store-bought crust, your quiche will be sure to impress!

I am so excited to share with you this money-saving idea. If you like to bake, you know that buying those little bottles of colored sugar can get expensive and it can be hard to find a wide variety of colors. DIY Sanding Sugar is easy to make with Kroger granulated sugar and Kroger food coloring. That’s all you need!
How to make your own Colored Sugar
Store bought sanding sugar runs between .44 to .99 cents per ounce. By making your own with Kroger products it is closer to .04 to .07 cents per ounce and you can make any color, in any shade you want.
DIY Sanding Sugar Instructions:
Pour 1/2 cup sugar into a zipper food storage bag.
Put food coloring into the sugar. I use between 6 drops and 1 teaspoon of food coloring, depending on how dark I want the color. You may want to experiment with less to start, you can always add more.
Zip the bag closed and shake and squish the sugar around until the food coloring is completely mixed into the sugar.
Pour the sugar onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or foil.
Spread out the sugar so that it is one a nice thin layer.
Bake at 170 degrees for 10 minutes.
Remove sugar from oven and let it cool for 5 minutes.
Pour sugar back into a food storage bag and shake and squish the sugar until the sugar crystals are all broken up and no clumps remain.
Granulated sugar has smaller granules than store bought colored sugar. If you are putting the sugar on cookies before baking, you will want a more coarse sugar so that it doesn’t melt in the oven while the cookies bake.
If you don’t want to cook the sugar to remove the moisture from the food coloring, you can leave the sheet pan out overnight to allow the sugar to dry.
If you add too much food coloring and the color is darker than you wanted, you can add more sugar to the zipper baggie to lighten the color.
The color of the sugar is a little darker when wet from the food coloring and will lighten a little after it has dried in the oven.
I love the look of the fine colored sugar and how it sparkles on these sugar cookies. It would be so fun to make colored sanding sugar to match a birthday party, team colors or even different shades of the same color (ooh, maybe different shades of green for St. Paddy’s Day)!
