Trying to Get Pregnant - spending too much on prenancy test?
If you are like me, you probably have spend a lot of money on pregnancy test or even ovulation kits. I recently found out that they sell them at the Dollar store for 1.25 CND. I was sceptic at first on their accuracy but a friend recently got a positive pregnancy test from a Dollar Store test.
When cooking and baking I reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe down at least a third. Some recipes can even be made with no sugar at all. I started doing this because I can not stand the taste of the artificial sweeteners.
For recipes that you use frequently, you can taste test until you get a taste you like.
