This blog post is sponsored through our partnership with Family Dollar.

Angela and I have a super fun and exciting announcement to make. We’ll be participating in the Family Dollar More For Less Recipe Challenge starting very soon! We will be competing against 10 fabulously creative bloggers to see who made the best original recipe, using ingredients purchased at Family Dollar for less than $15. The winning blogger gets to meet and cook with Celebrity Chef Pat Neely! Our mouth watering recipe is for creamy Spaghetti Carbonara, loaded up with delicious bacon.
