Rinse Cherry Tomatoes
The smell of the Olive Oil/Herb mix had my hubby asking me what I was making, and my daughter thought I was making my homemade Marinara sauce. That was before I had put these beauties in the oven, so be prepared for these tomaotes to go quickly when they come out of the oven!
Roast in a 300 degree oven for 30-45 minutes, or until colored & dry just a bit, not dehydrated. I baked mine for the full 45 minutes, checking every 5 minutes after 30 minutes. Don’t bake more than an hour.

As author Kym Petrie herself realized, every woman needs a froggy friend and a secret journal—and enough adventures with the girls to keep her heart pounding and her mind racing. Life is meant to be about happy beginnings . . . you can never have enough of them.

Our failure to talk about these issues, to recognize the warning signs, and to create supportive environments in our homes, schools and communities where victims are able to come forward are all reasons why they continue to happen. We are all bystanders to the violence and abuse that goes on in our circles of influence and it's time for that to end.

With one daughter in middle school and one in elementary school, I thought I had a few more years to think about college tuition, courses and books. I was happy to stay in the here and now, setting aside what we could for college and praying for partial scholarships.
Then a few weeks into the school year, I had a conversation with a teacher at my daughter's middle school that changed my way of thinking completely. This teacher shared her knowledge on higher education, college entrance procedures and costs.
She offered advice on helping us prep for high school and college beyond AP classes. Yes, my daughter is only an 8th grader, but we must have our eye on her college needs now. As this teacher told me, if you wait until 10th grade, you are behind!
That’s why I am excited to have the opportunity to share with you a resource that not only helps college bound families save money on books, they offer a scholarship as well. I invite you to check out CampusBookRentals.com.
Here are some perks of renting texts books with them:
Save 40-90% off bookstore prices (I compared prices on this book and I can save 50%).
Free shipping both ways
Can highlight in the textbooks
Flexible renting periods
They also support a charity that is near and dear to my heart: Operation Smile.
This is from CampusBookRental’s website:
"We have teamed up with Operation Smile, an out of this world, awesome organization, that performs life changing cleft lip surgeries on children whose families could not otherwise afford it. The long term Improvement in quality of life for the children that receive these surgeries is almost incomprehensible. We have committed to donating enough money to cover a minimum of 1,000 life changing surgeries. We hope to beat that number, but it's a significant commitment. Like Big!
So for EVERY book rented this year, we will donate a portion of the proceeds to Operation Smile with our sights set on meeting and exceeding our goal of 1,000 lives changed. So add that extra book to your cart, and consider this goal as you go back to school this year. CampusBookRentals.com supports the children of Operation Smile, and we thank you for your support.
You can read about our commitment here:
I am thankful I have this resource for the future needs of our daughters. I hope you find this review helpful. Please visit CampusBookRental.com to learn more and share this with family and friends who have college bound kids.
