Free Recipes You Have to Try

I just want to put it out there that most vegetables make me cringe...but not anymore.
Have you heard of The Sneaky Chef? She has been around a while but just recently stuff about her keeps showing up in my inbox and I thought maybe the powers that be are trying to tell me something. With that said I'm going to start trying out some free recipes and I hope you will too.

The idea behind The Sneaky Chef is that she teaches you how to hide fruits and vegetables (mainly vegetables) in your food and your kids food so that you can enjoy all the nutritional value without the icky veggie taste. I can't wait to try the Orange Puree and the White Puree in my next pasta dish. Maybe I'll try it tonight.

Although she has several books on the shelves now, she gives readers of her website several free sample recipe including the major puree recipes that are the base of many other recipes. Check out the free recipes HERE

Have you tried any of The Sneaky Chef recipes? How are they?

What Are The Abbreviations?

Ok...I've started using some abbreviations in my posts and I know you want to know what they mean...so...here is the meaning behind them =)

I use the same abbreviations that Addicted to Saving, Becentsable, Couponing to Disney and every other site I have found uses. These specific definitions are from Addicted to Saving.

B1G1 or BOGO = Buy One, Get One Free

B2G1 = Buy Two, Get One Free

Blinkies = Coupons that are in the coupon dispensers attached to shelves in your store. Dispenser is often red and often blinking.

DND = Do Not Double (this applies to people who shop at stores that double coupons. If you live in FL, most stores in FL do not double coupons)

ECB = Extra Care Bucks (instant rewards that print out when you purchase select sales items at CVS)

Hangtag = Coupons “hanging” around the necks of bottles, jars, etc at your store.

MAN or MFR = Manufacturer Coupon

Getting Serious About Freebies

Over the past few months I have really been getting into couponing and saving every penny I can for several reasons. The economy, desire to become debt free, waiting until I get my big break...you get the idea. Well, because of my new found obsession I have also been looking for every free thing I can get my hands on. I began saving free items in a container because I figured since Christmas is coming up I might as well see what I can get to give my friends and family without breaking my budget. The container turned into four containers and I'm still adding to my collection.

I started this freebies site as a blog and never kept up with it but after seeing how many things I was able to collect within 30 days I knew I had to share this with everyone I can. Below are two photos with just some of the stuff I have gotten for free. How have I been getting this stuff for free? Coupons, deals, sales and all that jazz. From now on every time I find out about something I can get for free I'll post it on this site.

What better day to set up this website officially then 10-10-10? It seemed like the perfect time to launch!!! I figure if Mark Zuckerberg can launch facebook within a week, why not officially launch this on such an epic date?

If your business has a freebie for new customers, old customers or even just free samples to offer and you want me to tell all of Tampa about it...please email me at morethanphotographs at gmail dot com and I would be happy to spread the word!

Woohoo! We are officially www.tampabayfreebies.com now and that means big things are coming. I have been toying around with this and trying to figure out exactly what to do with this blog and I have decided this should be a place to go to find all the free things available in Tampa.

If you have a freebie you want mentioned-let me know and we will get it on the site!!! I look forward to showing you just how much you can get for free =)
