Kraft has released a new Target printable coupon here for $1/2 Kraft salad dressing!  Pair that with the Buy 2, Get 1 free coupon that Target has for Kraft salad dressing and the $.55/1 Kraft printable you’ve got yourself a great deal!

Here’s the breakdown on this deal:

Buy 3 Kraft salad dressings – $1.69/each

Use 3 $.55/1 manufacturer’s printable coupon (you will need access to 2 computer to print this many)
Use B2G1 free Target coupon (-$1.69)

I found the $1/2 Target coupon under the zip code 78660 when I sorted by “Foods.”  Hurry and grab yours before it’s gone. It won’t last long!  PLEASE NOTE:  YMMV on using the B2G1 free and the $1/2 together since Target’s coupon policy changed.  I’m not sure how that will work out, but I’m going to go today to test it out.

Plus, here are two yummy summer salad recipes to help you use up all this salad dressing you’re buying!

Chicken Spinach Bow Tie Pasta Salad ~ I got this recipe from What’s on My Menu and it has become a favorite for potlucks and family gatherings!

baby spinach
grilled chicken
bow tie pasta
feta cheese
toffee glazed almond accents
diced tomatoes

-make the dressing by mixing equal parts Italian dressing and Caesar dressing

Taco salad ~ This is a pretty basic recipe that my mom used to make all of the time when I was a kid – it sounds a little bit strange, but when you mix it all together, it’s yummy!

Iceberg lettuce, shredded
1 can light red kidney beans, drained
Ground beef, browned (I mix mine with a little bit of taco seasoning as I cook it)
Corn tortilla chips (crushed)
Shredded cheddar cheese (8 oz bag)
Thousand Island salad dressing (chilled)

Mix all ingredients together and serve.

Feta Pork Chop Skillet


1 t crushed dried rosemary
1 t dried basil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 pinch black pepper
1 T olive oil
4 pork chops (I used 3)
¼ c fresh lemon juice
2 oz (or more) crumbled feta cheese with basil and sun-dried tomatoes (I used 4 oz)
1-2 yellow summer squash or zucchini, remove seeds and slice (I have never removed seeds from them so I didn’t…I used 3 zucchini and 2 squash because I love them, but I did have to take the meat out at the end so I had more room for them all to finish cooking)

In a small bowl, stir together rosemary, basil, garlic, and pepper. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Dip pork chops in lemon juice, and spread both sides with herb mixture.
Place pork chops in skillet, drizzle with some of remaining lemon juice, and sear both sides, about 7 minutes per side.
After a few minutes, add sliced squash to edges of pan. Reduce heat to low.
Sprinkle feta on top of chops; cover skillet, and cook until cheese begins to melt, about 5 minutes.
(We served over rice)

(Thanks Time2Save for the heads up on the coupons!)

HOT coupon alert: $.30/1 Ro-tel

Ro-tel is a staple in my house – seriously.  I stockpile the stuff when I can find a good deal!  The other night, I realized that our supply is getting dangerously low and I was just thinking that I need to be on the look-out for a good deal!  Right now, there is a $.30/1 Ro-Tel printable coupon here.  HURRY and grab yours. They never last long!  If your stores double or triple coupons, you should be able to get this for about $.10 and possibly free if there’s a good sale!

If you’re looking for a great recipe that’s easy to throw together using Ro-Tel, check out my creamy tortilla soup recipe here. You cook it in the slow cooker and it’s basically a “dump and go” recipe!  We love it!

Tasty Treat Tuesday: Banana Chocolate Snack Cake!

My kids LOVE to help me bake, but during the school year when I’m working full time, I don’t have as much time to bake with them. Now that summer is here, I’m starting a new feature: Tasty Treat Tuesday! I hope you’ll link up some of your favorite treats that you’re cooking up for your family this week, too!

This week’s recipe is Banana Chocolate Snack Cake and it is one of my absolute favorites because it’s so easy to make and it’s very “kid friendly.”  For some reason, even though we love bananas, every now and then, they seem to get neglected and so there are a few that are left over and past their prime.  This recipe is perfect for dealing with those leftover bananas and we usually have the other base ingredients on hand, too!  My kids love helping to stir and mash the bananas while we cook!  (You’ll have to trust me on how yummy this is because the picture just doesn’t do it justice!)

2 very ripe medium bananas
1 1/4 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup water
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Place bananas in ungreased 8-inch square pan; mash with fork. Stir in remaining ingredients except chocolate chips. Sprinkle chocolate chips over batter.
2. Bake 35 to 37 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 45 minutes.
