Greasy Spaghetti Sauce.... ICK!

Everyone loves homemade spaghetti sauce... but sometimes it can get rather greasy. Not so pleasant for afterwards.

To avoid this:

Cook your ground beef separate. After it's done cooking, use a colander ( and drain it over the sink, just like you would pasta, and run hot water over it to get any excess grease off.

No more greasy spaghetti sauce!!!

Ramen Noodles

Ramen Noodles aren't just the poor college student's resort anymore!

All the doctors will say STAY AWAY! Because they are packed full of sodium. Guess where all that sodium is? In that little packet of seasoning.

To reduce all that sodium, you can still add that packet of seasoning when cooking stove top, BUT drain the juice off of it. I recommend using our Pampered Chef Scoop N' Drain ( This avoids all that seasoning, thus the sodium. Another option is, instead of using that packet, substitute a chicken bouillon cube.

Now, lets play...

Cook your Ramen Noodles like normal, but in a separate pan (check out our Pampered Chef line: saute some veggies and chicken in bite sized pieces (season as desired). Drain your noodles with the Scoop N' Drain and mix!

This is quick and easy... and FILLING!!!

Yummy Quick Snack!!

For a quick and easy snack that both adults and children will love:

Crackers (Saltines, Town House, etc.)
Top with cream cheese (I prefer whipped)
Top with salsa
