~ Tropical Traditions is offering free shipping!! through Monday, August 6 if you use the code: 682212. A minimum order of $16 is required. Guess what? Their gallon sized bucket of Palm Shortening (one of my very favorite TT products!) is on sale at 42% off through August 5, which means you can get it right now for just $23.59 with free shipping! I use this Palm Shortening every time I want to fry food (donuts, chicken nuggets, french fries, etc.) and it is a very healthy choice. Plus it is flavorless, so it does not effect the flavor of the food you are making. Want to know what makes a great Whole Wheat Pie Crust? Tropical Traditions Palm Shortening!
By the way, if you are a new customer with Tropical Traditions and you purchase through my referral links above, you get a free Virgin Coconut Oil Book with your order. It’s a great, informational book.

~ I typically get my beloved jars at garage sales or even for free from dear friends who know I love jars. But every once in a while I find a good price and purchase them new. Here are some I found at Amazon that look like great jars for storing food (so that you can enjoy staring at them later):
- Bormioli Rocco Fido 3-Piece Set
- Anchor Hocking 1 – Gallon Heritage Hill Jar with Lid
- Ball Mason Pint Sized Wide Mouth Set of 12 (My FAVORITE for storing leftovers in the fridge! Ooh, and for Homemade Peanut Butter.)
~ Okay, check out these Kinetic Go Green Glass Lock 6-piece sets for food storage. And now it is time for me to stop looking at glass jars and storage containers that I like. It’s getting dangerous. ;)
~ It’s not too late to begin making Homemade Vanilla Extract for Christmas gifts this year. Don’t forget that Olive Nation, my favorite source for vanilla beans offers 10% off vanilla beans, plus free shipping when you use the exclusive Heavenly Homemakers code: hhm2012.
