I’m a bargain shopper. I know to buy milk at our local grocery store, not the big store. I know that if I go early in the morning, I’ll find deals on meats there too.

I know to go to my Dollar General for paper products and also for cereal and noodles.

And Now I can pick up All You Magazine there too!

Right there at the checkout. I love that my local Dollar General is carrying this magazine now. Full of coupons, great recipes, beauty tips. You can save $1.00 off your copy here. With all the great coupons in the magazine, I’ve already paid for my issue about 5 times over.

There are decorating tips that now have me thinking of adding some bright red splashes in my Living room. And how cool was it to find my friend Kelly Dixon doing the craft challenge!

So I pick up my copy and a few essentials.

There are several recipes I’ll be trying out on the family soon including Blue Cheese and Spinach Pizza, Coffee Waffles, and  a Southwestern Chicken pasta Bake.

First on my baking list had to be the Chocolate Strawberry Shortcake!

It just called to me and shortcake is always a summertime dessert. Making the biscuits Chocolate was just the right thing to do.

I made my biscuits the day before and stored them in a Ziploc Baggie until I was ready to use them .

  5. Prepare macerated Strawberries. Combine cut strawberries with 1/4 cup sugar. Let sit, stirring occasionally for 30 minutes to create a juice.
  6. Whip heavy cream with sugar until soft peaks form, do not overmix or you'll end up with butter.
