My family loved this breakfast I made for them and adding avocados and corn to our scrambled eggs was definitely something new to try. I took a shortcut on the ingredients and used canned corn with bell peppers in it (also called Mexicorn) so I wouldn’t have to buy a fresh bell pepper.

Whipped Cream Canister Recall

by Freebies4Mom on June 23, 2017 6:57 am


Do you have a gourmet whipped cream canister similar to the one shown in the photo above? If you do, stop using it and dispose of it, because it can be very dangerous.

It came to my attention because a bizarre headline caught my attention in the news:  “Fitness model dies in freak kitchen accident” A whipped cream canister exploded and hit her in the thorax causing cardiac arrest which she dies of. When I looked at the photo I realized that I had this gourmet whipped cream canister in my kitchen – and so did my mom!

I couldn’t find any official recalls, but according to the news article, these do-it-yourself whipped cream canisters “rely on gas capsules to pressurize a metal container canister, which creates the whipped cream. Under some circumstances, those capsules can be expelled like a bullet at high speed.” So basically they are dangerous and you should not use them!

This is the first death attributed to their use, but many injuries have been reported. They have been sold under several brands – mine was from Illy and the one in the news was from Chantilly. Please help spread the word and tell your family and friends about this recall!


Why I have a date with my dermatologist every May…

by Freebies4Mom on June 13, 2017 12:03 pm

SkinCancer is scary. Skin cancer is scary. Don’t be fooled into thinking it’s a less scary type of cancer because it’s a fact that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime.

I visited my dermatologist in May (the month of my birthday) to have a skin cancer screening and I learned why it’s so important to have this annual screening. I was aware of the Self-Check and have been doing them – but my approach to the health of my skin was that I would see a dermatologist only when I had a concern about something specific (and not as a preventative measure). My approach has changed after seeing a dermatologist and talking to her while she measured my moles (and wrote them down). I now understand the value of having a trained professional look at my skin every year in order to catch subtle changes that may indicate precancerous conditions. I am not trained to catch the subtle changes that she can catch – and that’s important when you’re trying to prevent skin cancer.

My dermatologist told me:

“most people come to me when there’s an obvious change, like a mole that’s bleeding – and we want to catch skin cancer before it gets to that stage”

Then I read a few facts to further educate myself, and drill it into my mind that my annual skin cancer screening is not something I can skip.


I now have an annual date with my dermatologist every May (the month of my birthday). It’s a gift to myself to invest in preventative care that will improve my health and help me keep my future medical expenses lower. I’m going to ask you again, because it’s so important for you to answer this question:

Have you had your Annual Skin Cancer Screening? 

If not, please contact your insurance company or use the Skin Cancer Foundation’s physician finder to schedule an appointment.


Why does everything have to break at the same time?

by Freebies4Mom on June 9, 2017 12:02 pm

water heater in atticIt started with the car breaking. The computer broke next. At this point I’m thinking “OK, I can handle the extra time and expense of two things breaking around the same time.” But the “breaking” had only just begun because before I had gotten the car and computer fixed more things broke that required more of my attention (and time and money). The air conditioning started breaking (at the peak of hot summer temperatures of course). Wait! I’m not done with my list of broken things around my house. The hot water heater broke on the same day that the air conditioning broke.

So I threw my hands up and called the people who know how to fix these things (and crossed my fingers I wouldn’t have to wait too long to have hot water and cool air again). I did try to fix the hot water heater myself because how hard could it be to light a pilot light? Well, impossible for me because it would not light after several attempts. So I’m glad I know professionals who can fix these things that keep breaking around me. And I’m glad I have an Emergency Fund that I can rely on if this drizzly day turns into a torrential downpour. I’ve got my fingers crossed that nothing else will break while I work on getting things fixed.

A few weeks later and the breaking streak has not been broken. The water filter in my refrigerator was broken which made it impossible to replace. I called the manufacturer with hopes they had “do-it-yourself” tips on how to remove it – they did but the tips didn’t work for me so I broke down and called an appliance repairman. Then I got stranded because I had a dead car battery (only 13 months after a new car battery was installed). Ironically I was picking up the computer when this happened – it was irreparable but at least we recovered what was on the hard drive.

One thing I learned from all the repairs was that it’s helpful to call the company that installed your hot water heater or air conditioner or car battery because if it’s still under warranty then they will likely repair it for free (and then they submit the repair to the manufacturer). My hot water heater and air conditioner were repaired for free under warranty. My car battery could have been replaced under warranty too, but I was too anxious to drive very far before replacing it (and ends up where I would have gone was without power on the day my battery died). My refrigerator was no longer under warranty – but I cheerfully paid the service charge to get that broken water filter out.

How do you cope with things breaking right and left around you?


4 Ways to Squelch A “Want”

by Freebies4Mom on June 8, 2017 12:00 pm

TipsThere was this purse I saw on Amazon that I instantly fell in love with and thought “I have to get this purse, it is so ME!”. But I didn’t buy it because the pricetag was over $200 – and I’ve never bought a purse that costs anywhere near that much. ]

I squelched my desire to buy it by printing out a picture of it and filing it away (so it was out-of-sight and out-of-mind).  Well, I found that picture a few months after I printed it and guess what? I no longer want that purse – and now when I look at it I think “Those zebra stripes are so NOT me”. I am so glad I didn’t buy it when I wanted to, but held onto it as a “wish” that might be granted or denied at a later date.

I’m still shopping for a new purse – but instead of browsing online for the “perfect” purse I’m looking in the Goodwill Store for the “perfect” gently-used purse.

Here are four tips to squelch a “Want” on your list:

1. Print It and then Forget It

2. Ask for it as a Gift

3. Go Frugal

4. Just Say No To Yourself

It’s ok (and even healthy) so just say no to yourself! You can make do with what you have – and many times you will find that what you have is plenty!

We get bombarded with “buy more” messages every day so it’s easy to think that we need to upgrade something when we don’t really need to.

Having less helps us appreciate all that we have that much more! Don’t you think so?
