FREE Printable Easter Savings Recipes & Grocery List

The following post is brought to you by Favado.  Any opinions expressed are 100% my own.  

Easter is right around the corner (April 20th to be exact).  Do you know what you’ll be serving for Easter dinner yet?  We typically get together with my side of the family and have the traditional Easter fixings of ham with lots of delicious sides!  After we eat, we head outside to hide Easter eggs filled with candy and treats and we let all the kids (14 in all this year!) go and find them.  It’s always a great time and we make some precious memories together!

Did you know that there’s an easy way to find out the lowest prices on Easter foods like ham, potatoes, eggs, produce, and candy?  You can, with the Favado App!  A few months ago, my sister showed me the Favado App on her phone and I was so impressed that I downloaded it onto my iPad.

Why Do I Like the Favado App?


The main reason I like it, is because it allows me to look at my favorite stores and see what the best deals at those stores are.  It saves me time and money both, by matching current coupons with the sales at the stores.  I live in a rural community and don’t have many stores to choose from, but Favado even feature MY stores.  Stores like Walmart, Dollar General and Aldi!  These are stores I frequent on a regular basis!  In order to find your local stores, all you have to do is enter your zip code and the App will tell you all the deals for your area and show you where to print the coupon (if there is one).  It’s really cool!

Because Favado wanted to make your Easter meal really simple and affordable for everyone, they’ve created a FREE Easter Recipes & Grocery List for you to use in your meal planning! Each of the recipes calls for commonly used ingredients, that will most likely be discounted the week before Easter.

Delicious food, delicious savings…

Download Favado today (it’s free!) and save big on your ham, your eggs to color, and other delicious ingredients you’ll need for your Easter dinner!


Super Easy Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

This recipe is so easy!  It’s a dump it in and be done type of recipe.  While you could use dry beans, I like having a canned version so that if I happened to forget to plan ahead, I could throw it all in the crockpot and put it on high for a few hours.  OR if all else fails, I could even make it on the stovetop pretty quickly, too.  We enjoyed it, I hope you will, too!

Freezer to Slow Cooker Instructions

This is one of those meals that you could prepare it all and put it in a freezer safe bag OR you could just throw it all in that day.  If you plan to prepare it, my recommendation is to do the following:

  1. Place all ingredients except chicken in freezer bag and mix well by stirring or squishing bag.
  2. Add chicken breasts.
  3. Label and lay flat to freeze.
  4. Follow cooking instructions above.
