Save the Earth, Save your Budget

The very first Earth Day was April 22, 1970.  Over the past 51 years, we’ve learned much about the small, everyday things we can do to benefit our planet.  Recycling used to mean getting the nickel deposit back for returning your soda bottles to the store.  Today, it’s a major industry.

A good way to conserve natural resources is to save energy.  The Public Service Commission wants to help you to find ways to cut your energy consumption and to keep your bills lower.  Some of these suggestions may serve as reminders, but others might be new ideas you can incorporate to save money on your power bill.

A good place to start is by changing your air conditioner filter.  When dust, pollen and pet dander accumulate on the filter, it causes your air conditioner to run longer and work harder.

Fancy Feast, the most popular brand of gourmet wet cat food in the US, is celebrating the launch of Petites, their premier line of single-serve entrées, by releasing a companion cookbook for humans. With the new Fancy Feast Petites Feast Cookbook, cat owners and fans of the brand can now cook meals inspired by their cat's favorite dishes but made for you. Available for download, this single-serve cookbook features 12 delectable, human recipes inspired by your cat's new favorite Petites entrees.

Carefully crafted by Fancy Feast's in-house chef, Amanda Hassner, along with guest additions from James Beard Award Nominee, Jerrelle Guy, and actor turned baker, Josh Snyder, the Petites Feast Cookbook allows cat owners to take part in the dining experience with their cats.

"From Chicken and Ramen with Tomato Honey Butter Sauce to Whitefish and Asparagus with Beurre Blanc, the cookbook features recipes that are elevated but easy enough to whip up on a weeknight," said Fancy Feast's in-house chef, Amanda Hassner.
