About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

This chocolate chip banana bread is a winner!  Super easy, super moist, and super delicious!  The only thing I regret is not taking a picture of it's awesomeness.  But I was pretty distracted with watching the Red Sox in the World Series last night. 
 
Ingredients
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 large, very ripe bananas, peeled and mashed
2 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup milk chocolate chips

Directions
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until fluffy.  Add eggs, bananas, and vanilla and beat until well blended.  Beat in cinnamon, baking soda, salt, baking powder, and flour until thoroughly mixed.  Stir in chocolate chips.

Pour batter into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
