Quick Tip Cut Grocery Shopping Time Woman at Grocery Store

This Tip Will Cut Your Grocery Shopping Time in Half

When you’re a kid, your parents are bound to drag you to a least a few places you hate. On the top of my least-favorite-places shortlist was Syms Clothing, a now-defunct clothing store that made me feel like we were shopping in a prison. The way I remember it, it was a windowless store with

Healthier seven layer dip recipe

Healthier Seven-Layer Dip

Seven-layer dip was a regular feature of watching Saturday college football games with my dad when I was a kid. It’s one of his favorite snacks, and my sweet mom would make it for us, served with restaurant-style tortilla chips. Dad doesn’t like sour cream (or yogurt, or mayonnaise…weird, I know), so her version had a layer of
