easy as peach pie!

You seriously have to make this, it's really yummy, and easy. I LOVE easy recipes. Who doesn't right?

 Start with these yummy ingredients:

pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees 
add the frozen peaches, and strawberries to a bowl

toss in cornstarch and sugar, let stand a few minutes to thaw

stir until totally dissolved, mixture should be syrupy like this

place pie crust in a pie pan and pour the mixture on top, 
spread evenly, careful not to tear it

fold over the edges of the pie crust (crust wont totally cover the fruit mixture)

should look like this when it's ready to pop in the oven. 
place in the bottom rack for 60-70min or until the 
crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly...

After it comes out of the oven (mine tore somewhere, 
so it looks a little messy, but still so yummy!)

Now I forgot to take a picture with a slice on my plate, I guess I was too excited to chow down! Serve it warm with some Vanilla Bean ice-cream, trust me...it's the perfect summer treat! Enjoy! Let me know if you try it! Recipe below ;)

Easy as Peach Pie!
1 refrigerated crust
1 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 16-ounce package frozen peach slices

mailbox goodness...

I have been away....for about a month....life just seems to pass us up so quickly doesn't it? I have totally been a crazy coupon lady for the past month! I think that show "Extreme Couponing" really got me thinking about how much money I could really save my family. I would never do it the caliber that those people on the show do it, but I really think I can get things for free or near free, if I wait for the items that I want to go on sale. I have been very successful, I am very proud to report. And slowly but surely my "mini stockpile" is growing! I am happy when I already have it on hand and don't have to make yet another trip to the grocery store.

I follow a lot of these match-up websites for great deals at stores I regularly shop at, so it really eliminates all the hard work, all I have to do it print what I want to buy, clip the coupons and head to the store, it's really nice no to have to do any of the tough work ;)

On some of these sites they also share freebies, or things you can get free sample of, here are some of the things I have gotten so far:

Hey, it's free! The Purex is enough for one load of laundry, and there are 4 GoodNites, plus all of these samples always come with great high dollar coupons! I guess I am now a crazy couponer! Well I love getting stuff for free, and I can't wait to see what else I can snag up for free or nearly free ;)
