Homemade Cincinnati Spaghetti in the Slow Cooker

Homemade Cincinnati Spaghetti in the Slow Cooker chock full of fresh veggies on

My husband is from Ohio, and loves Cincinnati Chili Spaghetti. I usually use a Cincinnati Chili spice packet, but wanted to create a recipe that better fit into our clean eating lifestyle. Plus, it’s so important to me to make sure that we eat lots of veggies. Believe it or not, this spaghetti sauce is chock full of fresh squash, zucchini, onion, carrots, and green peppers. I know, hard to believe. Trust me, it doesn’t make the sauce taste weird at all. If anything it’s so much more hearty and robust. I used whole grain noodles, and served with a yummy salad. It’s also AdvoCare 24-Day Challenge Friendly.

I purchased the organic spaghetti sauce and organic canned diced tomatoes at ALDI at incredible prices! In case you didn’t know, ALDI is now carrying more natural and organic products! If you don’t see them in your store yet, hang on you’ll see more soon!!

ALDI: My Trip to Corporate Headquarters and Exciting News!


Last week I told you that I was headed to Chicago for a trip to ALDI’s test kitchen for a holiday event with several other bloggers from across the country. Personally, I love to shop at ALDI. Since their low prices are so much cheaper than my local grocery store I know I am getting incredible deals on my groceries without worrying about coupons. Especially since we changed our diet and have cut out most processed foods, it was important to find a way to save money on our groceries as there aren’t generally coupons available for the kinds of foods we buy.

I’ve included a couple highlights from my trip below along with exciting news! [Read more...]

Time 2 $ave Cookout 2013

cookout 2013

Recently, I was contacted by ALDI about hosting a summer cookout. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to invite all the girls that help out on the blog and their family’s over for a cookout.  Between trying to coordinate my schedule and everyone else’s along with the over abundance of rain I ended up having to pick a date on short notice.  As in, I invited everyone on Monday and the party was on Thursday. Not much time to prepare since I was gone all day Monday and Tuesday. In fact, I didn’t even make it to ALDI until Wednesday night. So, I decided to keep everything super simple. I told everyone just to show up, I would take care of everything if they would just bring drinks for their family. [Read more...]

Spruced Up Cake Mix: Double Chocolate Cake Recipe

Spruced Up Cake Mix: Double Chocolate Cake

Kasey here, recently we hosted a cook out at our house for the Time 2 $ave team and their family’s. It was so great to spend time with everyone, and our kids had a blast playing in the backyard together. I made a chocolate cake for dessert and posted the pic on facebook. Immediately my wall blew up with comments requesting the recipe. Who knew a chocolate cake could garner such a response. It was so simple to make! I followed my blogger friend, Hoosier Homemade’s advice and spruced up an ALDI cake mix.  She always adds four eggs (even if the mix calls for less) and replaces the water with buttermilk. Although I generally prefer homemade cakes I thought I would try her suggestion since I was on such a tight time frame. Oh. My. Word. It was so moist and delicious! I added homemade icing, and garnished with one of the premium milk chocolate bars from ALDI. I think it turned out beautifully.  Amazed at how easy it was to grate the chocolate bar using a cheese grater! I’ve included my recipe below for my spruced up cake mix double chocolate cake recipe!

I made another cake yesterday to take to church however it didn’t turn out nearly as pretty. It’s really important to give the cake time to completely cool before drizzling the icing. Then, make sure to allow the icing to cool before adding the chocolate shavings. I didn’t have time for either Saturday morning and by the time we got to church my cake looked like a hot mess! The chocolate shavings melted everywhere. Oh well,lesson learned! [Read more...]
