{Red Velvet Cake...Yum!}

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Labor Day!!

Not my photo
This is my idea of semi-homemade...this cake is super easy and super duper moist & yummy!!

Easy Red Velvet Cake

1 Box of butter recipe golden cake mix
1/2 cup margarine
4 eggs
1 tbsp. cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. white vinegar
2 oz. red food coloring
2 oz. water
1/2 cup buttermilk

Mix all ingredients for 4 minutes.  Pour into two 8' pie pans and bake for 30-35 minutes at 325 degrees F.  Cool layers.  (You can choose to split your two layers at this point...I do not though.)  Frost with cream cheese frosting.  (You can buy this from the store....OR make your own, like ME!)

Cream Cheese Frosting

1 cup margarine
2 8oz. packages of cream cheese
1 tsp. vanilla
2 boxes of confectioners sugar

Mix margarine, sugar, cream cheese and vanilla.  Beat well.

& there you have it....easy, yummy, super moist, ALMOST homemade cake =)  ENJOY!!

Thursday, September 2, 2010


I've been playing around with this site for a couple days before I decided whether I wanted to blog about it or not.  I've decided it takes a little bit of time (I'm on the internet almost all day anyway) but it's definitely worth it!! 

Let’s start with the basics, What is Swagbucks?
Swagbucks is an online search engine just like Google or Yahoo. 

How do I earn Swagbucks?
You can earn Swagbucks by doing searches for just about anything online. Just switch to using rather than Swagbucks randomly awards “Swagbucks” when you search. You can also earn points for using the toolbar, completing surveys, and finding codes throughout the site.

What do I do with Swagbucks?
Swagbucks can be redeemed for prizes in the online Swag Store. You can purchase things like Gift Cards, Starbucks Gift Cards and even iTunes Gift Cards. There are tons of options, those are just my favorites.

How many Swagbucks do I need to earn?
It takes 450 Swagbucks to redeem for a $5 gift card. (Free money, wahoo!!)

How Fast Can I earn Swagbucks?
There are lots of ways to earn Swagbucks including the Toolbar, Free Swagcodes and Special Offers. I’ll be highlighting these over the next few days so make sure you follow along. Typically I would expect to get about a $5 Gift Card a month but you can earn a lot more if you really keep up with the codes or you can get some friends to sign up under you and you can earn referral swagbucks.

When should I redeem my Swagbucks?
I redeem my swagbucks as soon as I can for Gift Cards. Then I add these to my account on Amazon and they are ready and waiting when I want to buy something. It takes about 10-15 days for the codes to show up in your account once you redeem your swagbucks so don’t wait till you’re ready to buy something on to redeem your swagbucks.

How do I redeem my Swagbucks?
You can go to the Swag Store link from the Swagbucks Home Page and then click on Gift/Rewards Cards. Look for the $5 Gift Card or any prize that you want to buy and then click on the green “Snag This” button. Swagbucks will add the gift codes to your account in the middle (Around the 17th) and at the end of each month.

{Free Kashi Snack Sample}

Kashi is giving away free samples of their TLC snacks.  You can choose from a free: TLC Ripe Strawberry Cereal Bar, TLC Trail Mix Chewy Granola Bar Trail Mix, or TLC Original 7 Grain Crackers.  Click here for your's.

Thanks MoneySavingMom!

{Right @ Home: Free Ziploc gift package}

First 10,000 to respond will receive one Ziploc® Brand Vacuum Freezer Starter Kit, one 15-count box of gallon size Ziploc® Brand Freezer Bags with the Smart Zip™ Seal, and one set of large rectangle Ziploc® Brand Containers.

Gift packs will be mailed by November 15, 2010. If you have received a gift pack from Right@Home™ in the last 180 days, you are not eligible for this month’s offer.

**I just signed up and there are still some left.  Hurry!!**

Thanks MoneySavingMom!
