Fun with Jingles!

by Casserole Queens

Ready to have some fun with jingles? We are!

The other day our dear friend Laura Graf sent us a note saying she was feeling creative (and possibly a little bored!) and wanted to write us a jingle. She came up with three very unique ideas, but we need your help in deciding which one to choose. We will be collecting votes all this week and next, and will close the polls on July 8th. The winning jingle will get placed on our website, and who knows – maybe we will even make a video!

To learn more about our little songstress, check out Laura at

Jingle #1 (Performed to the tune of “Love for Sale”)

Jingle #2  (Performed to the tune of “Put Your Head on my Shoulder” )

Jingle #3 (Performed to the tune of “I Love Rock-n-Roll”)

Sandy’s Salsa Situation!

by Sandy Pollock

I love salsa.  I mean I REALLY love salsa.  Not the chunky stuff though — I love the vinegary-smooth burning kind.  If my nose isn’t running and my mouth isn’t on fire when I’m done eating, then it didn’t count.

I recently had to go on a business trip and was away from home for about a month.  I could NOT find my brand of hot sauce anywhere.  I ended up buying and trying over 10 different hot sauces while I was gone and none of them gave me the flavor and burn that I crave from my favorite.

Once I got home, I made a bee line for my grocery store to load up on the spicy red liquid, when much to my horror, I found that MY grocery store, as well as all surrounding stores, have quit selling it!

Panic started to set in.

I wrote to the company that makes the hot sauce and asked them WHY they would deprive me of this thing that brings me so much happiness.  They responded and suggested that I first acquire some sort of life, and then they gave me a list of area grocery stores that might carry it.  I should note that all of the stores they listed are very far way, but I drove to them all.  Of all of the places I visited, I found a single bottle and I bought the crap out of it!

Needless to say I was bummed, but then my main squeeze did the most amazing thing and surprised me with the bestest treat ever!  He ordered an entire case of my beautiful beautiful salsa online.  I LOVE YOU ML!

It’s like Christmas.

So pretty!

Get in my belly!

I’m a happy Queen.

How about you? What is your favorite salsa?

For the clumsiest of Queens in your life

by Crystal Cook

I don’t know what they put in this stuff but it’s like a little miracle in every bottle. Trust me, they don’t call me ‘grace’ for a reason—I spill often. This has saved my carpet, my couch, cocktail dresses and many aprons. Pair with a bottle of red wine for a wonderful holiday gift idea!

You can buy you own bottle here:
