Hi All! It’s been some time since I have really blogged. I started to change my diet as well as shopping habits, and I haven’t really known what to do with my site. While I want to save people money, and share my deals, I also want to be genuine and spread my findings as well as love for clean eating and yes, WINE. I have been doing wine demos for the last year, and it inspired me to go to school and get credentials. Now I’m not saying I know everything about wine. I’m saying I am learning more about my love for it, and although I can do blind taste tests with ease, I am greatly interested in the chemistry of pairings…. oh but that’s not what this post is about really
I wanted to share with you my deal on Beringer wine! I usually buy several bottles when I can find a rebate on it, but lucky me, I have been paying closer attention to the sales, and my friend from The Cents’able shoppin’ mentioned there was a coupon coming out for this wine that can be found on the back of the CVS insert tomorrow (manu $4/2) , so here’s the deal:
Fry’s all wine buy 6 get 25% off
Beringer wines 2 for $9
buy 6= $27
less 25% = $20.25
use (3) $4/2 manufacturer Beringer coupons found at the back of the CVS paper (exp 3/31/13)
= $8.25 or $1.38 each wyb 6
This deal works as I just did it myself to verify. The wine sale goes on thru Tuesday, so grab your coupons tomorrow and go shopping! I bought several bottles of Moscato to pair up with home made strawberry shortcake for Easter! Okay, truth time, I made some for tonight as well
Here is the recipe I used for the shortcake:
4 cups fresh strawberries, rinsed, hulled, and sliced
4 – 6 tablespoons sugar (adjust to suit your own taste)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
4 tablespoons sugar
1/3 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
1/2 cup cold milk (I used almond milk)
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
whipped cream (I prefer the real thing)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
In a medium bowl, stir together the strawberries and sugar. Set strawberries aside to macerate while you prepare the shortcakes. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and sugar. Using a pastry blender or your fingertips, and working quickly, cut or rub the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk and vanilla all at once to flour mixture and stir until just combined.
Using a large spoon, drop mixture into four equal piles on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 12 – 15 minutes at 425 degrees. Remove biscuits to a rack and let cool for a few minutes. To serve, split a warm biscuit in two, spoon 1/4 of the berry mixture over the bottom half (make sure you include lots of the juice), top with whipped cream and the other half of the biscuit.

Ok, well, I hope you will enjoy your heavily discounted wine, and come see me again! I definitely will have more to share soon!
