    Even though I’m not retired yet(have another 10 yrs) my husband is retired and gets social security and works a part-time job. I think your ideas would be of interest to us and lots of others.

    Oh, I love coffee-mate and the many flavored creams(a little pricey). Do we just go onto Coffemate.com and find the info? ps I tried making my own flavored coffee: Lite chocolate syrup and coffee, pretty tasty!

    This has been very helpful, thank you!

    in reply to: Awesome SF Pecan Pie!!!! #416530

    I can’t wait to try this recipe as my husband is diabetic, and pecan pie is his favorite! I’m sure he would rather have something home-made instead of sugar-free popsicles, jello and the like. Thank you for sharing!

    ps. we have a LARGE bag of pecans just given to us.
