If you like Banana Bread, you will love this Banana Streusel Muffin recipe!

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup sugar

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

2 eggs

1/4 tsp. vanilla

1 cup sour cream                                                                         

1/4 cup melted butter

1/4 cup sugar

2 medium ripe mashed bananas

Streusel Topping:

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons butter

-Preheat oven to 375 degrees  

-In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. In a small bowl, beat eggs, sour cream, butter,vanlla, and bananas-stir into dry ingredients just until moistenened. Do not overmix! Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups with batter.

-To make the streusel mix, combine sugar (I added a little brown sugar as well for that caramel taste-yummy!) flour, and cinnamon in small bowl; cut in the butter. Sprinkle over the muffins. Bake for 20-25 minutes! Enjoy! These are so yummy with a cup of coffee!

I hope that you enjoy this recipe!

Target: printable coupon for $5/4 Kellogg's cereals!

Have you checked out the Target coupons lately? If not, you will want to head OVER HERE to see the new coupons that have been released! It appears that the $5/4 Kelloggs's Cereal coupon has been reset as well! Yay! Why am I so excited? This is a manufacturer's coupon so you can use it at any store! It does have the Target logo on it, but since it is a manufacturer's coupon and not a Target coupon, you shoud be able to use it at your favorite store! I noticed the other day when I was in CVS, that they had an unadvertised special on the smaller boxes of Kellogg's--they were on sale for $1.25 each! That would make 4 boxes FREE! I just need to make sure that they are at least 10 oz. for the coupon to work!

While you are printing off your Kellogg's coupon, don't forget to print off the $1/1  Target coupon for Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate! It is on Temporary Price Cut at Target right now for .97! The coupon will adjust itself down to .97 so you will get it for FREE! Or, if you have a Publix nearby, they have Swiss Miss BOGO this week! You could use 2 $1/1 Target coupons (if your Publix considers Target a competitor--mine does) and get 2 boxes for FREE!

***Butterscotch and Chocolate Fudge Recipe***

For all of my friends who wanted this recipe, here it is! This Butterscotch and Chocolate Fudge recipe is the easiest thing in the world to make and is very affordable! The recipe does yield about 2 pounds, so you get alot of fudge! This is a great way to use up all those Nestle chips that you have on hand right now! :-)

Butterscotch and Chocolate Fudge

1 12oz. bag of chocolate chips

1 cup of butterscotch chips

1 14 oz. can of condensed milk

1 tsp. vanilla extract

nuts, optional

-Line a 8 inch glass dish with aluminum foil. Butter it down.

-In a small microwave-safe bowl, place the butterscotch chips and only 1/3 cup of the condensed milk; set aside.

-In a medium microwave-safe bowl, place the bag of chocolate chips, and the rest of the condensed milk and vanilla. Microwave until melted and stir. (If you add nuts, you would so at this point) Place melted chocolate mixture in the lined glass dish.

-Place the butterscotch chip mixture that you set aside into the microwave and melt.

-Pour over the top of the chocolate mixture and spread evenly across.

-Refrigerate until nice and firm.

-Peel away from the aluminum foil, serve and enjoy!

BEWARE: You will not be able to eat just one piece! :-)

***Options: you could also replace the butterscotch chips with peanut butter chips or white chocolate chips for variations! ***

TARGET: Couponing 101 & New Coupon Policy Information! 

I have heard that some people are still having problems with Target accepting their coupons stacked with a manufacturer coupon, so I am going to go ahead and post their coupon policy for you. It is now available online right on the Target website. I would highly suggest printing this off and keeping it with you for when you shop at Target!

Target's coupon policy does state that you can stack one manufacturer coupon with a Target coupon, so if your cashier tries to tell you otherwise, show them the policy!

Also, it is Target's policy to adjust a coupon down if the coupon is for more than the product. I always let the cashier know right up front if I have an item for which the coupon is more. I don't want any problems, and it helps them out as well. I have gotten overage at Target on several occassions, but it just depends on your cashier and if they will allow it. Generally, I just tell the cashier up front if the coupon is more than the item to avoid problems--and long lines behind me! :-)

Lastly, I just wanted to make sure that you know Target just changed their online coupon system. They now use E-incentives, which only allows 2 prints per computer. Also, you will need to look closely at the coupons that Target is now putting on their website as some (not all) of them are actually MANUFACTURER coupons but with a TARGET logo on them. In this case, you would not be able to stack a Target coupon with a manufacturer coupon as the Target coupon is a manufacturer coupon. One of the only good things I see from this would be that if the Target coupon is a manufacturer coupon--you could actually use it at other stores! This might make for a sweet deal at another store other than Target! Now, if the Target manufacturer coupon were to state, "Redeemable ONLY at Target" you could only use it at Target. From what I can tell so far though, you can use these Target manufacturer coupons at other stores as there is no restrictions on them!

I hope this is not too confusing, I just want to make sure that you understand Target's coupon policy! If you have any questions at all please let me know and I will be happy to help you!

Have fun shoping and getting sweet deals at Target! :-)

~Zuppa Tuscana Soup Recipe~

Since I posted on my Facebook page yesterday that I was making this soup for dinner, I have had so many of you request the recipe from me! Well, here ya go! Now, I wish that I could take credit for the recipe, but a wonderful lady at my church, Linda is the one who deserves that! This will be great on a cold winter night or just whenever you feel like a quick pick-me-up meal! Homeade soup is so comforting don't ya think? ;-)

This Zuppa Tuscana Soup recipe is so delicious! I promise that you will be making this one over and over again! My hubby who is not usually a soup eater raves about this! He even tells me that it is better than the one at Olive Garden!

Zuppa Tuscana Soup   

1 1/2 cups of fresh sausage links cut up in 1/2 inch slices (I used mild, but if you want a kick, you could do spicy!)

3/4 cup diced onions

1 1/4 teaspoon minced garlic

1 qt. chicken broth

3 large potatoes,cubed (I used 4 medium russetts)

2 cups kale, chopped small

1/3 cup heavy whipping cream

salt/pepper to taste

--Cook sausage in a stock pot for a few minutes. Add garlic and onions; cook until sausage is browned and onions are translucent. Add chicken broth and potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer for about 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Just before serving add the kale and heavy whipping cream. Let simmer for a few more minutes before serving! This is delicious served with breadsticks!****

I hope that you will enjoy this yummy soup recipe! You will not be able to eat just one bowl! I promise!
