I'm Moving! Check out Dash of Evans!

Being Cheap is Easy, Ashleigh Evans, Dash of Evans

From this point forward, all new post will be on my new blog: Dash of Evans. Originally, I was going to import all old posts to the new blog, but it ended up messing up my Pinterest links. SO, I'm going to leave this blog alone for the time being.

So why change?
When I started this blog FIVE years ago, I wanted to share coupon tips and how to save money. I will always be thrifty and cheap, but I wanted my name to show more than simply my frugality. Since my website is now more food based, it was time to switch.  

Don't worry, I'll still share budget tips for you! Feel free to email me with any questions you might have about coupons!

Let me know what you think and expect some awesome new recipes and video series ahead...when I find the time. Anyone else ready for back-to-school?!

Mmmm Mondays: One Pot Sausage Rigatoni

One Pot Pasta, Rigatoni, Sausage Pasta, Easy Pasta Dinners, Budget Friendly Meals

I will admit, I was quite skeptical when I saw everyone posting about one-pot pastas. I assumed the pasta would be either crunchy or way over cooked. Where does all of the liquid go?

From the first time I tried it, though, I was HOOKED. I will never boil water separately again. We can now have a pasta dinner in less than 25 minutes and by cooking the pasta in the sauce, it gets SO much flavor.  Plus you only have one pan to wash. Or should I say, for Ricky to wash.

It's gonna be HOT this weekend here in Michigan. Woohoo! During the summer months, I am all about watermelon.  I freeze cubes for my water! My favorite use, though? In cocktails, of course! Watermelon + Coconut is my favorite summer combo right now.
