Oh SNAP!

I think Groupon just developed my new favorite App!

And no…I don’t mean cheese sticks or fried pickles….but if anyone wants to send one of those my way I will not mind! (extra points for Reuben Eggrolls from Jordy McTaggarts!)

So Groupon announced today that they have a new App called Snap!

It’s a cash back program for Groceries. Because Ain’t nobody got time to clip coupons.

Here’s how it works…download the app, check out some of the offers they have. Then go grocery shopping. Once you are done, take a picture of your receipt and send it to your Snap App, and if you purchased any of the “deals” they have going on, they will give you that cash back! They put it in your account and after you’ve acquired at least $20 worth you can request a check!

The deals aren’t that bad either…I was sold when milk was the first deal. I’m pretty sure I can make it to the $20 mark quickly on milk alone…seriously.

You can find out more about Snap HERE.

I’m excited to try this out! Hopefully you are too. Apparently there are already some apps like this that exist…do you already use an app like this? What is it and do you like it?

Happy Grocery shopping!

Men Take A Stand

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and men, you can join in the awareness.

 

 

The Healthy Communities Initiative and its Domestic Violence Action Team in partnership with Turning Point Domestic Violence Services is preparing to host the third annual Men Take a Stand event in honor of October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Helping to promote an end to violence, the City of Columbus will be lighting the Second Street bridge with purple lights and Domestic Violence Action Team members are installing purple lights on the downtown trees.

Men Take a Stand is designed to recognize men in the community who have pledged to be positive male role models for healthy relationships. The event runs from 1 to 1:45 p.m. Oct. 1 on the steps of City Hall in downtown Columbus. Male members of the community who have made the pledge will have their names called and stand together to demonstrate that domestic violence is not just a women’s issue. Jeffery Bucholtz, a speaker and trainer from the national organization We End Violence, will offer a brief presentation.

 

It is free and open to the public. I will be joined by some of my male colleagues at QMIX and we will be there to show our support. I hope you can join us.

Taylor Swift Sings “Someone Like You” with Leukemia Patient

Say what you will about Taylor Swift’s love life, but this girl has a huge heart and I am a big fan!

 

The video description from youtube:

I recently underwent a bone marrow transplant due to leukemia. Taylor Swift stopped by the hospital for a surprise visit and dropped by my room to say hi! When she noticed the keyboard in my room, she asked me to play a song for her. I decided to play a song I had recently started working on which was “Someone Like You,” by Adele. She said she would sing what she knew, and I said that I would play as much as I knew. This was the most amazing moment in my life being able to accompany Taylor Swift. She is super nice and cordial and probably made everyone’s day here at the hospital. It was so great of her to come out specially to visit all of us here at the hospital. And in case you are wondering, I did get a hug from her, unfortunately it wasn’t caught on video!

 

This Pizza Cake is REAL, Yo!

Over the weekend, I saw this creeping up on all of my social media things:

 

Pepperoni Pizza Cake

 

At first I thought it was a joke. This needed investigation!

 

 

There is a recipe on the Pillsbury website. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Start by finding a pan that has tall sides, like this cake pan. The bottom does not need to be removable like this one. It could even be a square pan, if you can’t find a circular one.Tall, round cake pan with removable bottom
Start by unrolling your pizza dough and pressing it out into an even layer. Cut out three 6-inch circles (or the size needed to fit the bottom of your pan).Cutting circles of dough
Bake the circles on a lightly greased baking sheet for just eight minutes, then remove them from the pan and cool. Open up the second pizza dough and cut two 6-inch circles along the long side of the dough, bake for eight minutes and then cool. Cut a long strip on the opposite side of the remaining pizza dough. Make sure the dough is a half inch taller than the height of your pan, and cut it into a long strip.Cutting dough
Line the round pan with parchment paper, so that parchment paper comes up and over the sides of the pan. Carefully drape the pizza dough inside the pan, to line the sides, leaving that extra half inch of the dough hanging over the outside edge. Take one of the cooked and cooled pizza dough circles and place it in the bottom of the pan.Placing circle of dough in round cake pan
Now is a great time to let the kids help! Have them spread pizza sauce on the bottom layer, followed by a layer of pepperoni. Place a layer of shredded mozzarella cheese on top, followed by another precooked pizza dough circle.Adding shredded mozzerella and tomato sauce to pizza pan
Repeat the process, until you reach the top layer. Finish the cake by spreading pizza sauce, mozzarella, and then pepperoni. Use the dough that is hanging over the edge of
the pan to create a crust, by rolling it over on top of the top layer of pizza.

Ok, let’s go!
Topping pizza cake with slices of pepperoni
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the sides of the pizza are fully cooked. If the top of the pizza crust is becoming too dark while baking, use a strip of aluminum foil to cover the crust to prevent it from burning.Pepperoni Pizza Cake
Once it’s fully cooked, carefully remove the pizza from the pan by pulling up on the parchment paper. Let the pizza cool for five minutes before using a sharp knife to cut slices, like you would a cake.
