Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the milk. Divide batter evenly into prepared pans. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove pans from oven and place in freezer for 45 minutes to cool. (update: this step is optional, you can let the cake cool on the counter instead if you prefer.) For the Cinnamon Cream Cheese Icing: In a large bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until smooth. Beat in maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon. Add confectioners’ sugar and beat on low speed until combined, then on high until frosting is smooth. Assemble the 3 layers with a thick layer of frosting in between each layer.

Store in the fridge until ready to serve.

2. Baked Acorn Squash with Butter and Brown Sugar

  • 1 Acorn squash
  • 1 Tbsp Butter
  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Maple Syrup
  • Dash of Salt

1. Preheat oven to 400°F
2. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut the acorn squash in half, from tip to stem. Use a spoon to scrape out the seeds and stringy bits from the squash, until the inside is smooth. Use a sharp knife and score the insides of the acorn squash halves in a cross-hatch pattern, about a half-inch deep cuts. Place the squash halves cut side up in a roasting pan. Put 1/4-inch of water over the bottom of the pan so that the squash doesn’t get dried out in the oven.
3. Add butter, salt, brown sugar, maple syrup: Rub a half tablespoon of butter into the insides of each half. Sprinkle with a little salt if you are using unsalted butter. Crumble a tablespoon of brown sugar into the center of each half and drizzle with a teaspoon of maple syrup.
4. Bake: Bake at 400°F for about an hour to an hour 15 minutes, until the tops of the squash halves are nicely browned, and the squash is soft and cooked through. 5 Remove from oven, spoon brown sugar butter sauce over squash: When done, remove the squash halves from the oven and let them cool for a bit before serving. Spoon butter/sugar sauce that has not already been absorbed by the squash over the exposed areas.

3. Kaula Pork:

  •  1lb pork loin
  • 2 Tbsp of liquid smoke
  • 2 Tbsp of pink Hawaiian salt


You put the pork loin in the crockpot, then put the the liquid smoke and salt on top. Rub it in and then start the crockpot for 10 hours! So easy! You can add onion and garlic for additional flavor, but it does increase the water content in the crockpot. Shred the pork and get to eating! Add bbq sauce to it for bbq pork sandwiches or anything you’d like!

4. Cheese Biscuits


  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 2 cups of self-rising flour
  • 2 cups of grated cheddar cheese

First, you melt the butter and sour cream together in a microwave and stir until blended. Then add the flour and stir until blended again. Then fold in the cheese and stir some more. Bake spoonful size drops of the mixed up dough on a cookie sheet for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees.


5. Turkey Pumpkin Chili


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 pound ground white or dark meat turkey
  • 1 (4.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin purée
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 (15-ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, bell pepper, jalapeños and garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 5 minutes. Add turkey and cook until browned. Add tomatoes, pumpkin, 1 cup water, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and add beans. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes more.


6. Potato Soup


  • Potatoes (4 large or up to 8 small potatoes)
  • Kosher Salt
  • Vegetable Oil
  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 3/4 cup of all purpose flour
  • 48 oz of chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • Celery salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 4-6 slices of cooked bacon, chopped
  • Chopped chives (depends on your preference)
  • 2 cups shredded Monterrey Jack / Cheddar cheese blend

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Rinse and scrub the skins of the potatoes and dry with a towel and then pierce each potato several times with a fork. Place a small amount of oil in your hands and coat each potato and then sprinkle each one with Kosher salt. Place in the oven, directly on the rack (no cookie sheet and NO foil!) Bake at 350 for approximately 60 minutes. In a large pot, cook your bacon, turning it frequently until just crispy. Leave the grease from the bacon for the next step (yes, it’s unhealthy, I know). In the same pot, melt the butter with the bacon grease, over a low to medium heat, being careful not to burn it. Add the onion and cook until softened. Add the flour and stir while it cooks for about 3 minutes, using a rubber spatula to loosen any bits of bacon stuck to the bottom (yum). Slowly add the chicken broth, water, salt, pepper, basil and sugar, bringing to a boil and stirring often with a whisk. Gradually add the heavy cream until you’ve reached the proper consistency. Chop the potatoes into bite-sized cubes and add to the soup and simmer for approximately 5 minutes to bring the potatoes to temperature (remember, they’re already cooked… so don’t overdo it).Ladle the soup into individual bowls and garnish with chopped bacon, chives and the cheese blend.

8 Ways Field Agent Has Allowed Agents To Positively Impact Their Community

At Field Agent, we’re all about providing people opportunities to make some money because we know that extra money for our Agents usually means giving them an opportunity to make a positive difference in the lives of those around them.

We recently asked a few Agents how Field Agent has allowed them to positively impact their community and their answers were pretty impactful.

8 Ways Field Agent Has Allowed Agents To Positively Impact Their Community:

1. “I have been able to positively impact my family by being able to provide some extra spending money for my young boys’ needs. Before Field Agent, we did not have any extra money at the end of the month after bills. But now, because of Field Agent, I can afford to take my boys out for a treat after a great week at school or save money for Christmas gifts or get them crayons and markers because they’re loving art!”

2. “I am new to my community, therefore, it has helped me learn more about supermarkets and stores around my way. I have learned to build up the courage to talk to others and make new friends.”

3. “Field Agent has made me more conscious of free samples that are available in other places too. Sometimes I will take those samples and donate them to charitable causes instead, such as pregnancy resource centers.”

4. “Going to do the jobs from Field Agent allows you to help positively influence retailers’ product offerings in the community. Buy and Try jobs are a perfect example of this. Test a product, give honest feedback and review the item to share opinions with family and friends as well as the general public. We also get the opportunity to share with retailers how their programs are being presented to consumers and help point out possible issues with their shelf presentation.”

5. “I use Field Agent to fund our nonessential purchases. It withdraws to a specific checking account that we use for eating out, movies etc. Field Agent allows for those little luxuries that improve family morale.”

6. “I get out more often and interact with my community while working for Field Agent. I actually see my friends more too. I wave to the neighbors on my way out and check to see if they need anything while I am out.”

7. “Field Agent has given me more interaction with the ‘outside world.’ I see these jobs as a way to interact with others and be a positive influence.”

8. “Field Agent has helped me to make more donations to my children’s school and the community. It has also brought me into new places that I wouldn’t have normally visited and now I frequent those places.”

8 Ways Field Agent Has Positively Impacted the Lives of Field Agents

At Field Agent, we’re all about providing people opportunities to make some money. Through the Field Agent app and jobs, Agents are able to provide feedback on products and retailers, sometimes changing the way products are presented, and make an overall difference for other shoppers when it comes to their insights. We recently asked a few Agents how Field Agent has positively impacted their life and their answers were pretty impactful.

8 Ways Field Agent Has Positively Impacted the Lives of Field Agents:

1. “I am a stay-at-home mom and have been able to contribute financially to my family! Field Agent fits into my lifestyle and allows me to make money on a flexible schedule. Being able to earn extra money for my family has boosted my self-confidence and self-worth!”

2. “I’m exceedingly grateful I came across the Field Agent app. As a single mom with no family in the area to watch my kids and no funds for hiring a babysitter, this app lets me earn money and still be home in time for the school bus. Even better, I don’t have to worry about being disciplined by an employer for having to pick my kids up from school when they get sick. I live in a rural area and imagine Field Agent is even more of a boon for single parents who live in more commercial areas.”

3. “Field Agent has helped me pay down debt and feel productive within my own community. I love FIELD AGENT!”

4. “I enjoy working with Field Agent. The programs are great. By completing tasks assigned, I was able to make extra money to pay for expensed costs such as gas or school supplies. In addition, with Buy and Try program, I had opportunities to try and gain knowledge about new products before I bought them for daily use. The program introduced several healthy products that my children liked after trying them. With Walmart non-grocery/ grocery in-store pickup tasks, I was able to use the bounty to pay for tax and gas along with the service which was convenient and time-saving.”

5. “Field Agent provides me with work I can do with two small kids in tow. I’m predominantly a stay-at-home-mom and Field Agent gives me the flexibility to earn a bit of money on my schedule. My boys love going to ‘work’ with Mommy too, they’re always excited that we’re going to the store!”

6. “Field Agent Buy and Try jobs introduced me to a whole variety of new delicious and useful products. Earned money allowed me to buy Christmas gifts, birthday gifts and so much more. I am truly grateful for this amazing company and all the opportunities.”

7. “Field Agent has helped take the pinch out of our grocery budget! We have a busy house with four kids. Field Agent has added a fun extra income for us.”

8. “Field Agent helps me feel like I’ve accomplished something while I’m out doing my everyday shopping. As a stay-at-home-mom, it was hard making the transition from working full-time to taking care of my kids full-time. I can do these little jobs and make some money on the side while doing things I normally would anyways.”

7 Fairly Entertaining and Funny Situations That Have Happened to Field Agents While Out in the Field

Anytime you’re at a store or out and about in public, something interesting is bound to happen. Especially if you’re trying to be discreet or undercover and on the job. Of course, this is true for Field Agents when they’re on the job. We recently asked a few Agents to share some of their most memorable experiences with us and there are definitely some things to laugh about in these incidents!

7 Fairly Entertaining and Funny Situations That Have Happened to Field Agents While Out in the Field:

1. “I’ve had someone offer to pay for my item when my card declined. I told them that it was okay and that I know I had money on my card and it was just a glitch and I needed a receipt for a buy and try item. The machine declined my card two more times while they stood there watching and I was so embarrassed that it clicked in my head that I was putting the wrong pin number in!”

2. “While completing an audit I noticed the products weren’t organized. I organized the products in order to complete the audit correctly. An employee thanked me for organizing the products.”

3. “Oftentimes people think I work for the establishment while doing a Field Agent gig. One time, a woman asked me a question regarding some merchandise and I replied, ‘I’m sorry, I don’t know.’ This woman went wild on me immediately yelling about how I should know this stuff and why can’t anyone help her? She was super embarrassed when I informed her I didn’t work there.”

4. “One time, I was asked to count how many bottles of something were in a cooler. I had to move all the flavors out of the way to correctly count. When I put them back, the stock boy and I cracked up about me restocking them exactly as I found them. He said I should apply because it looked better after I was done.”

5. “One time, when I was in Walmart I was doing a customer service audit during Halloween. I went in fully dressed in a Halloween costume, ran into my husband and he didn’t even know it was me! How’s that for cover?”

6. “While I was doing a panel measurement job an associate in hardware kept watching and trying to help me. He kept asking me questions I couldn’t answer and I would get confused on what I had already measured and would have to start over again. Eventually, I was like, ‘if you keep talking to me, I’m never going to get this done.’ We laughed and I got the job done.”

7.  “The weirdest thing to happen to me was while I was doing the index card audit. The cards were messed up,  so I’m sitting on the floor flipping through these stacks of cards and customers and employees kept walking past me. They would stare, then ask each other ‘what is she doing?… I don’t know but she seems to know… let’s just leave her there.'”

Which NFL Team Is Your Favorite? According to Field Agents, It’s The Dallas Cowboys

Football is back and the NFL season is upon us. Even the most casual of fans can get excited about the drama that comes with a new NFL season– why can’t that guy wear that helmet? Why is everyone booing that guy? They paid him how much, to do what?

Since we get pretty excited about football around here, we decided to ask our Field Agents which NFL team gets their support throughout the season.

Idea: as the season drags on, maybe we should ask again based on who is doing well and who isn’t. 

For the most part, those Dallas Cowboys seem to actually be America’s team, when it comes to Field Agents.

Do You Call It A Shopping Cart or a Buggy?

If you’ve ever been to a store for “just a few things,” it usually ends up in going back to the front of the store to get ones those big things with wheels on it to aid you in your purchases. But, what do you call one of those big things with wheels?

Recently, we asked our readers to tell us what they call those things and the results were a little different than we expected. For one, some people call them a trolley. A trolley!
