Banana Nut Nutella Mini Muffins

This morning I  was in the baking mood so I decided to make 
some Banana Nut Nutella Mini Muffins. I love Nutella, and
I love incorporating it into my recipes.  I have never used 
Nutella in  my banana bread recipe before. So I decided to experiment and use my mini muffin Wilton pan for this recipe.   My banana bread always comes out moist and delicious. 

 I had a little Nutella left from a previous recipe so I decided to 
put some in my banana bread batter. I also added a teaspoon of
cinnamon.  I sprinkled a few pecans on the top and popped them in the oven.  These mini muffins are great for a quick snack or  breakfast on the run. I hope you will try this recipe. The Nutella is what makes these mini muffins exceptional. 

Banana Nut Nutella Mini Muffins
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 pinch salt
1 tsp cinnamon

3 tbsp melted butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg 
1 tsp vanilla  bean paste
or vanilla extract
4 bananas mashed
1/4 cup Nutella
Chopped Pecans

Mix  dry ingredients until incorporated, set aside.
Add sugar, melted butter, egg and vanilla to  standing mixer. 
 Beat until mixture is mixed well. Add mashed bananas
and mix until incorporated. Add dry ingredients and mix
just until you can no longer see the flour. With a mini scoop
add batter to mini muffin pan and sprinkle a few chopped pecans on the top. Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick 
inserted comes out clean.  I love to serve these fabulous muffins
warm  with just a pat of butter. Enjoy!

Woolzie Dryer Balls Review & Giveaway

I received the opportunity to review for Woolzies Dryer Balls.
I was very interested in this product when I heard about
it on Facebook. So I contacted the company
and I received the  package last week.

I do all my laundry on Friday every week.  Normally

I don't use any fabric softener on my clothes. I know this
sounds strange but  I really have never used fabric softener.
I find that most of the liquid fabric softeners have
a really strong overpowering smell.  So when I received 
Woolzies I was excited to review this product.

Woozlies are made from New Zealand Wool, all 
natural and do not contain harsh chemicals.
You get six dryer balls in a box.

 I tossed the balls in the dryer and when I removed the clothes I was amazed. My clothes were soft and there was no
static. I really loved the fact that I accomplished
all this without having to use the harsh chemical
fabric softeners or dryer sheets.

 Woolzies  are good for 1000 loads and reduces your drying time by 25%. I use them every time  I do
laundry now. I really love this product and I am
very glad that I got to try it.

Woolzie Dryer Balls are an amazing product.
 I hope that you will try them.Good for you
and the environment.

Would you like to win a box of Woolzies to try in your
own home?  This is a $30 value. One lucky reader of Welcome
To My Kitchen will win a box of Woolizes. Simply enter the 
giveaway below.

Disclosure: I received free of charge a box of 
Woolzies Dryer Balls for this review. All thoughts
and opinions are my own and not influenced by
the company or product received.

Company Breakfast Casserole On Saturday Morning

I wanted to try something new for breakfast this 
morning for my son and I. I was browsing recipes
yesterday on the You Tube,  Gooseberry Patch
Channel. I came across a recipe that looked so good
called Company Breakfast Casserole and decided to 
make it. I went to the grocery store because I was 
out of eggs and had to pick up the rest of the ingredients
for the casserole.  The recipe can feed an army,but
that is ok because I plan on taking some to work on Sunday
and probably Monday to. 

I love easy recipes so this one is a keeper. You simply
layer all the ingredients in your pan. I decided to use
a bundt pan. I will use turkey sausage next time. I try 
not to use pork sausage if I don't have to.  

My son hates mushrooms but I love them. You
can change up the recipe to your liking and leave out the
mushrooms. You can add red peppers instead of green.
I love this recipe because you can add what you like. 

I used  hash browns for the first layer, browned pork 
sausage for the second and layered onions, green peppers
mushrooms and cheese on the top. The recipe calls for one dozen eggs beaten. I added a little milk and salt and pepper.
You pour over the top of the casserole and pop it in the oven.
Cover with foil and then uncover about 10 to 15 minutes before done.
Bake at 350 for  45 to 60 minutes.
