“Housed in an elegant 1920’s duplex in the dreamy Phoenix Country Club corridor, Coup Des Tartes enchants guests with meals of American-tinged French and Mediterranean fare culled from organic meats and locally raised vegetables and fruits. Like Charles de Gaulle’s album of sensitive acoustic singer-songwriter ballads, the restaurant combines stately Gallic character with disarming intimacy, framing meals of herbed chicken and grass-fed filet mignon with warm, flickering candlelight. Amid the restaurant’s cozy private dining rooms and vintage Paris accoutrements, guests happily sup upon Croque Monsieur or Moroccan Lamb Benedict, Three Onion Tarte or Lobster Salad Croissant paired with finest wines or artisan boissons. Guests may dine in or en plein aire on the spacious brick patio or veranda overlooking the tree-lined property. Across the courtyard from Coup Des Tartes, the private Rendezvous great room welcomes guests into a luxurious yet rustic cocoon of of provisioning feasts and fetes with freshly baked breakfast pastries, catered luncheons, and multi-course dinners.”

This is not good on Mother’s Day (but you could always take mom out to lunch another day)!

My Favorite Deals at the Grocery Stores This Week!


It’s time once again for my favorite deals at the grocery stores! Prices are good 4/27-5/3.

Download the Ibotta app here if you haven’t already. You can get money back from your purchases at grocery stores  including Sprouts, Fry’s, Safeway, Whole Foods, WinCo Foods, Albertsons and more (think money back from Larabars, Bisquick, corn dogs, fish sticks, taquitos, Orbit gum, Sargento cheese, mac and cheese, eggs, bananas, Windex, Palmolive, Pediasure, beer, wine, scotch, rum, vodka, tequila, and more). This is one of the best ways I’ve found to save on produce. It’s super easy to use once you get the hang of it and makes shopping way more fun. The cash back is in addition to any sales or coupons you have, and it goes right into your Paypal account (or you can get gift cards). You just redeem the offer and upload a picture of your receipt. I just got $5.00 back!

You can use coupons along with Ibotta and Checkout 51 money back!

Don’t forget that Walmart will match any ad (with few exclusions)! You DON’T NEED THE AD! You can use this list to hlp you score the best prices in one spot. Head over here to find out more about their Savings Catcher program that will make sure you’re saving big!
