After several weeks of wisdom-tooth-extraction-related hardships, I am finally around on a Friday to be back at the helm of the Savings financial news roundup. Hopefully iHuppp didn't trash the place while I was gone. Let's get this rolling because we at Savings have a very important staff meeting this afternoon... at the beach! Read More »

2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted are back.  No, I'm not referring to 2pac and Snoop Dogg.  I'm talking about Guy and myself.  We finally got out of jail for trying to sneak into E3.  We've had a pretty rough week.  I ended up in the middle of the Lakers riot and shot by a riot gun and Guy tore his calf muscle celebrating the end of E3 and the Lakers repeat championship.  While we were in the slammer, we had some time to think about our actions and do some more E3 research. 

Here is a recap of the best of E3: Read More »

I've always thought garages were for sheltering cars, spiders and loud, teenage rock bands. As a secondary function, a garage should serve as a safety deposit box for all things sentimental and equally annoying: old bridesmaid dresses, tax files and Grandma's cracked china collection.

Wow, have I been enlightened! After surveying the Savings.com staffers on what makes a perfect garage, I have been led to believe that the everyday garage might just be man's last magic castle! Read More »

One of my favorite things about summer is the easy, fast, and delicious meals that can be made with in-season produce. Of course, I try to cook in-season all year, but the soups and roasts and stews and casseroles of winter are more time-consuming and hardy, while summer's salads and grilled foods are quick and refreshing.

Since my husband and I both work full-time, the last thing we want to do when we get home is spend two hours cooking a meal, so when I see a recipe with a lengthy ingredient list, I immediately flip the page (or click away). The fewer, the better is my motto!

These 3 main dishes each have 3 ingredients or less and are quick, tasty and inexpensive. Read More »

Verizon Wireless looks to be moving towards tiered data plans much like AT&T, perhaps because the iPhone is rumored to be coming to American's most reliable 3G network. We also enjoyed the debut of Microsoft's newest gaming console Kinect and are left wondering how lolcats earns its founder seven figures. Read More »

Home Decor Decadence Inspired by Sex and the City 2

One thing I adored about the Sex and the City 2 movie was their non-apologetic romp through decadence! How refreshing that the pesky R Word (recession) was nowhere to be found. I must admit I totally enjoyed traveling with the characters from their sparkling New York homes to a budget-free, high-society wedding with none other than Liza Minnelli as the hired help, and then to be chauffeured to their desert oasis in not one, but four flawless Maybach sedans?

Talk about a fiction fantasy ride! Read More »

As a vegetarian, I have a deep appreciation for side dishes. I can't count the number of occasions that I've eaten meals made up entirely of side dishes. Holidays, meals out—once I even survived a birthday dinner (not mine) at a steak house.

The easiest sides when cooking at home are, I've found, salads. The following are a few of my favorites. Read More »
