— Mmmmmm, pie.
I don’t make pies, but I sure like to eat ’em! If you’re about as skilled with the pie-making as I am, you might need some professional help. Just call the Crisco Pie Hotline at 1-877-FOR PIE TIPS for baking tips, new time-saving hints and the opportunity to talk to a live Crisco Pie Pro. (I wonder if my 90-year-old Grandma could do this to earn a little extra dough?) And you can always get recipes at Crisco.com
— Trying to get knocked up?
Here’s a new mobile app for you: Baby Center’s Booty Caller
. It’s a series of text messages (3 per menstrual cycle) that lets women know when they’re most likely to be fertile and provide helpful fertility advice. Maybe you never considered the possibility of receiving ovulation alerts on your cell phone. Well, now you can.
— If you’re pregnant or the parent of an infant or toddler, you’ll want to check out the new Pampers Village website and community. Get expert advice, connect with other parents, start your own blog and, of course, get info about Pampers products. I’m excited about the Gifts to Grow program. When you buy Pampers diapers and wipes, you get codes inside the packages that you enter on line for points toward rewards for brands like Starbucks and Shutterfly. Nice!
