Eggland’s Best Large Eggs 1 Dozen Crtn Grade ‘A’ White With Club Card. Limit 2 Offers. $1.99 at Key Food.

In my opinion, this cup size works out perfect for two people , to share.

A win-win for everyone, don’t you think? Here are some interesting Ice-cream Recipes for you to try at home!

If we use the kitchen we need a detergent to clear up the mess. Probably buying a bigger bottle is more economical but keeping a couple of small bottles handy never really hurt. Price comparison with Key Food, and the offer at Pathmark works out better as you pay less and buy the quantity you want. Palmolive Liquid Dish Detergent 12.6-14 Fl Oz bottle Original or Orange – 3 FOR $3 at Key Food. Also, Ajax Liquid Dish Detergent14 Fl Oz Btl Lemon, Orange, Lime or Grapefruit – 3 FOR $3 at Key Food.
Key Food Condensed Milk 14 Oz Can Sweetened 2 for $3 at Key Food.
Here are 20 recipes made using condensed milk. I reach for my can of condensed milk when making a Banoffee Pie, an English dessert pie made from bananas, cream and toffee from boiled condensed milk. An absolutely simple yet scrumptious dessert! Although making condensed milk at home is fairly simple and non messy, it is very time consuming. An easy alternative is buying a can. This condensed milk by Key Food is wonderful, and does the job really well.

My go to shop for excellent boneless chicken is Alnoor Halal Meat Market in Brooklyn for $3.50 Lb. The quality, without doubt, is excellent. The chicken breasts pieces are fresh, pink and spotlessly cleaned. The cost works out the same as prepacked chicken at any supermarket but what you save on is the time spent on cleaning the chicken! This meat market is highly recommend – great quality, service and they deliver too!

America’s Choice® Olives 98¢ 5.75-6 oz. Assorted Varieties at Food Basics.
I used to detest Olives, till I started loving them. Olives in tomato pasta sauce enhance its flavour and appeal. Making a pasta dish with Rinaldi pasta sauce, add a few Olives and give the store bought sauce a nice homemade touch. You can also use Olives as appetizers. Here are a bunch of appetizer recipes you may enjoy, made using Olives. As per The World’s Health Food, Olives have many health-protective nutrients.

Sour cream is great for enhancing the flavour and consistency of an appetizer, dessert and even a sauce. Of course, there are easy substitutes for sour cream (eternally grateful to Peggy Trowbridge Filippone for this), one of which i used in the Creamy Chicken & Broccoli Over Rice dish. However, this is a good price to grab a box, if you think you want one.
Roma Plum Tomatoes or Tropical Mango 98¢ each per Lb at Food Basics.
However, if its tomatoes you are looking to buy I would recommend making a quick trip to Met Foods to grab their last week’s offer of 79¢ Lb. Met Food’s weekly ad will update tomorrow, so you still have time to avail this value offer!
Fresh Lemons 3 for 98¢ at Food Basics.
A great source of Vitamin C, lemons add a zing to any recipe or drink. I usually get my weekly batch from a nearby convenience store, Reyes Deli & Grocery, that sells fresh green limes and yellow lemons at a consistent price – 4 for $1. Works out pretty well for me! However, Food Basic is selling lemons for the best price so you should definitely buy a couple. Best way to store lemons is sealed in a zip-lock in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator, to retain their softness and colour for longer.
Crisp Fresh Green Beans 99¢ Lb at Associated Supermarkets. You can also buy Fresh Green Beans at Met Foodmarkets for 99¢ Lb from 23 – 29 March.
I love adding fresh green vegetables to daily meals. Tender green beans need nothing more than a simple sauté in butter, garlic, salt & pepper to taste delightful! Green beans adds immense food value, and the lovely radiant colour is a visually delight.
Fresh Southern Collards Green for 99¢ Lb at Associated Supermarkets.
Here’s a simple side-dish recipe you can try with Southern Style Collard Greens. If you have more time at hand, try this recipe by chef Paula Deen. Both the recipes are equally nutritious and appetizing.
Fresh Sleeved Garlic 99¢ for Pkg. of 5 at Associated Supermarkets.
An article by The Worlds Healthiest Food states that the health benefits of Garlic can be multiplied by letting it sit on the counter for sometime after you’ve chopped/ crushed it, before you cook it. They further recommend that it’s best to add it towards the end of the cooking process to retain the maximum amount of flavor and nutrition.

Red Cross Salt (Plain or Iodized) 99¢ for a 26 Oz Cont. at Associated Supermarkets.
I generally recommend stocking up on salt when you feel the price is too good to be true, as you need salt all year though and fortunately it can be stored without the fear of rotting or getting spoilt. However, there have been better offers on Salt – buy a box if you need one!
