All things pumpkin are in full effect! Are you loving it or ready to move right into peppermint for the holidays?
We are embracing it over here…I love the warm spices that meld so wonderfully with the flavor of pumpkin. And this Pumpkin Banana Bread is the perfect display of that. Continue reading
This bread here is a doozy, guys! I had a haul of rhubarb to use up so I thought, wouldn’t the tartness pair so nicely with the sweetness of bananas.. and my thought was a total winner!
How often do you have over-ripe bananas sitting on your counter? Is it just me? I swear it happens weekly, yet I continue to buy the same bunch that tends to go partially uneaten every time I do my shopping. Maybe it’s because I love a good challenge? Because Lord knows you can only make so much banana bread and so many peanut butter banana smoothies…it forces me to switch things up and get creative with those leftover sweeties.
Well now if this doesn’t scream my husbands name, I’m not sure what does. This, right here, is one of his very favorite meals…and I have to admit, he has pretty darn good taste.
Lets just start this party immediately, guys. There’s a lot of celebrating to do, no sense in wasting anyones time.
First, we’ve got grilled bread. No, wait. Glazed with olive oil, grilled, crunchy on the outside slightly crisp on the inside bread. And you know, I don’t eat much bread on the regular. But this bread right here? ALWAYS an exception for this girl. Continue reading
Guys, I write to you with reservation. This is not how this was supposed to go. We weren’t supposed to end our zucchini week this way. I had big dreams. High hopes. Goodbyes are difficult…zucchini goodbyes, well, they deserve more than a confidence-lacking post.
You see, I was kind of saving the best for last here with this bread. I made it last week…it was incredible…but I didn’t take photos. Figured I’d make it again this week because my kids acted like famished wolves when I made the last batch…it would be a perfect opportunity for me to get some photos for you. How special to be able to share them on this last day we have together with zucchini. I hate goodbyes. Continue reading
Well, friends, it’s been a while. Too long, in fact. My husband and I just returned home from a few days away and man am I feeling refreshed and ready to go. Continue reading
Man can breakfasts get mundane in my home. Finding something thats quick and healthful while still tasting yummy for the kiddos can be quite the challenge. I am thankful they love eggs in all shapes and forms but, as it is, we darn near need to buy a family of chickens to keep up with that whole deal.
Sweet treats can be so fun for breakfast…and these muffins fit right in that category. My kids love my pumpkin muffins and sometimes for something fun I add in chocolate chips. So I thought…if pumpkin is so yummy in a baked good, why wouldn’t sweet potato be? Continue reading
So these have sort of become a weekend breakfast staple for us. They are quick and easy to put together and the leftovers freeze wonderfully for quick breakfasts later on in the week.
They are healthful and full of nutrients without refined sugars and flours which makes me pretty darn happy…and pretty darn ok with the fact that my kids always want seconds. Continue reading
This was positively not supposed to happen today. I had a plan. I am dependent on my plans. For this, I blame my children.
Pre kids I could’ve won awards for flying by the seat of my pants. Always down for whatever. Always willing to juggle around my days. And top notch at getting side tracked and staying up into the late hours of the evening in order to complete the most important task that needed to be done that day. Procrastination was a strong suit of mine. It still is, but there is now a schedule. That part has just got to stick. Continue reading
Summer is a favorite time of mine, as a reader, in the blogging world. Regardless of what the blog focus is, at some point, writers tend to share some sort of piece of their summer family vacation and I positively love it. It helps me get to know the writer and feel like a little part of their world-its so fun to get a glimpse into their personal lives beyond their everyday writing. Continue reading
