Food Friday – Peach & Raspberry Melba Shortbread Bars (Simple Recipe from Southern Living)

When looking for new recipes to try, I like two things – simplicity and pictures.  A recipe might catch my attention, but I start to zone out when it starts mentioning ingredients that I have never heard of.  Plus, I have found I am much more likely to try a new recipe, if it has a picture with it.

Recently, while working out I was reading through the April issue of Southern Living magazine and spotted a recipe that I just HAD to try – Peach & Raspberry Melba Shortbread Bars.  Notice the irony, I am “working out” and spotting sweets I can make at a later date. I read through the list of ingredients and it seemed simple enough, but looked impressive.  So, yesterday, I gave it a try and it truly is very, very good. Southern Living did not disappoint!

Peach and Raspberry Melba Shortbread Bars

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup butter/margarine
1 cup peach preserves
6 tsp. raspberry preserves
1/2 cup sliced almonds
Garnish – powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, sugar and salt in the bowl.  Add in butter (the mixture will be crumbly).  Take out one cup of this flour mixture for a later step.

Lightly grease a 9″ X 9″ or 11″ X 7″ pan.  Press the remaining flour mixture onto the bottom on the pan.

 Bake at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes or until lightly browned.

Spread peach preserves over crust in the pan.  Dollop raspberry preserves by 1/2 teaspoon full over peach preserves (by the looks of my picture below, my dollops were heaps – oops).

Sprinkle the 1 cup reserved flour mixture over preserves and sprinkle with almonds.

 

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 – 40 minutes or until golden brown.  Let cool one hour on wire rack.  Garnish with powdered sugar.

Here is the final product…

Easter Candy Deals – FREE Snickers Easter Eggs and Printable Easter Candy Coupons

Easter is just around the corner and Coupons.com has just released some Easter candy coupons that may come in handy. 

For example, I got FREE Snickers eggs (pictured above) at CVS this week using the $1.00 off any two Mars Easter products coupon .  They are on sale for $.50 each (through 4/9), so if you purchase four and redeem two of these coupons, you can receive four for free!

The M & M eggs pictured above are $.99 each at CVS and Target, so if you use the $1.00 off any two Mars Easter products coupon , you can purchase them for $.49 each.

Also at CVS, you can get Peeps for $.49 each (through 4/9) by using this $1.00 off two Peeps coupon. The Peeps coupon is a Facebook coupon and is available when you “like” them.

(Note –  If you plan to shop at CVS, don’t forget that April 1 began a new quarter. So, when you visit the store, scan your CVS card at the store kiosk and it will print the CVS ExtraBucks you earned from your Jan-Mar quarterly spending).

Other Easter candy coupons available are:

$60 Weekly Grocery Challenge – Spent $64.09 (Plus Tax) for $165.66 Worth (Saved $99.08)!

What is the $60 Weekly Grocery Challenge?

Each week my goal is to spend approximately $60 for food, drinks, groceries, toiletries, diapers and medicine for my family of five. Then, I report on this blog the items that I bought, the best sales and coupon match-ups that I found and hopefully by doing so, help you stretch your family’s grocery budget, as well!

How Did I Do This Week? 

Harris Teeter – Spent $64.09 (plus tax) for $165.66 worth of groceries!  

I am pretty sure that today represents the highest amount that I have ever saved at Harris Teeter on a single shopping trip – $99.08 (after handing over my VIC card and the stack of coupons)! I sort of wish I had used one more $1.00 off coupon today to push me over the $100 mark in savings 🙂 Here is my receipt: 

 In addition to the $99.08 in savings, I also received a coupon at checkout for a FREE gallon of milk during my next shopping trip.  I received this for purchasing three boxes of Kellogg’s cereal in one transaction.  This promotion is valid through April 9. On my deals’ list below, you will find a printable $1.00 off coupon for Frosted Mini-Wheats cereal, which are buy one, get one free this week.  This will help you save big on both cereal and milk (which is now $3.99+ gallon – yikes!) 

Today, I also redeemed the $10 off any $50 purchase at Harris Teeter coupon that I received from Recyclebank. To view my post about this free program and how to quickly accumulate points to receive your $10 off $50 Harris Teeter purchase, click here!

Thrifty Tuesday – A Quick Tip to Save You Money on Gasoline!

A Sheetz gas station just opened a mile from my house and I must say, I am happy to see a little gasoline competition in my area.  The first week they were open, their prices were $.30 a gallon less than the two established gas stations very close by.  Amazingly, within a day or so, the competing two gas stations had dropped their prices to match Sheetz. Gotta love a little healthy business competition, right?

Being an avid couponer (I am sure you haven’t noticed – ha ha), I also love the FREE food coupons Sheetz mailed to us.  Free subs…free coffee for a month…free cookies for the kids…Sheetz is working hard on getting people in the door and it is working!  It is packed every time I go by. 

With that said, I wanted to let you know about a great way that YOU can save money on gasoline at Sheetz – sign up for a “My Sheetz Card!”  To obtain it, go inside any Sheetz gas station, present your driver’s license and they will issue you a “My Sheetz Card.”  It is a reward card that you swipe prior to each gas/food purchase.  By using it, you will receive free reward items from the store, extra discounts and CHEAP gas.  I bet the cheap gas part of that got your attention; it certain got mine 🙂 

How cheap?  Once you receive your My Sheetz Card, you will automatically get a $.50 off per gallon discount on your first fill up (limit 30 gallons). However, if you go online and register your card on Sheetz.com, this discount increases to $1.00 off per gallon for your first fill up

Considering my vehicle costs approximately $60.00 to fill up right now, the $1.00 off per gallon discount will definitely make a big difference later in the week when I stop by for a fill up.  I hope this little tip helps you save some cash, as well!
