How to Roast Spaghetti Squash

spaghetti squash

I admit, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I kept seeing all these recipes on Pinterest with spaghetti squash instead of noodles and I thought surely these people had lost their minds. There is no way that spaghetti squash is good, much less as good as noodles. But, in our quest to eat healthier I was willing to give it a try. I have to admit I was very pleasantly surprised. I actually loved it! Spaghetti Squash has a rich peppery flavor and is so easy to roast. I’ve included step-by-step directions below. [Read more...]

How to Save on Gas #MyFuelRewards

This is a sponsored post. All opinions and text are my own.
how to save money on gas

Are you headed on a trip for Spring Break or already planning your Summer vacation? Gas can be a huge expense, not only in our daily life, but also on special trips as well. I am always looking for easy ways to save money that doesn’t take much effort on my part. When I heard about Fuel Rewards I knew I couldn’t wait to share with you after I had some time to use it myself and see how it worked for my family! It’s completely legit and so easy to use. You are going to LOVE IT!! From now until June 5, you can sign up for the Fuel Rewards Program and save 25 cents per gallon on your first fill up. An additional 3 cents per gallon will be taken off your fuel balance after each fill-up from there on out. One Fuel Rewards member paid a total of 19 cents for 20 gallons worth of fuel, and even if you just saved the guaranteed 3 cents per gallon, that’s still almost a dollar off per tank!

The Fuel Rewards Network™ program offers you real savings at participating Shell stations:

  • For a limited time, new members of the Fuels Rewards Network program can get a 25c/gal sign-up bonus when they join the program.
  • Signing up is simple! You can request your free Fuel Rewards Network Card online HERE.
  • Savings can be redeemed on any grade of Shell Nitrogen Enriched Gasoline including Shell V-Power Premium Gasoline as well as Shell Diesel, up to 20 gallons per purchase! Simply swipe your Fuel Rewards Network Card at the pump before you pay and watch your price drop instantly before your eyes.
  • To qualify, you must purchase at least 8 gallons of fuel on your first fill-up using your Fuel Rewards Network Card, while enjoying at least 3c/gal savings. Then, the 25c/gal will be credited to your account for your next fill up. 

You earn 25¢/gal when you refer a friend, and they’ll earn 25¢/gal too.

Here’s the BEST part! Of course you want to share this with your friends and family because they would love to save 25c/gal of gas, you can receive an additional 25c/gal every time you refer a friend or family member to join the Fuel Rewards Network program! Go here to get your first 25c/gal then share with your friends and family. They will thank you!
