A few weeks ago, one of my friends hosted a freezer-friendly breakfast food swap. Everyone made up a big batch of something and we split them all up so everyone went home with a stock of grab-and-go breakfasts for their freezer. It was pretty genius. It also introduced us to breakfast cookies. And now that […]
Alright guys, I’m going to admit it: I’m obsessed with cinnamon rolls. They are just such a satisfying project for me. I love getting the rolls cut perfectly and then watching them puff up as they rise. And the smell? Amazing. And now that I’ve perfected my favorite recipe, I’m loving trying variations.
Banana bread is not new to the blog. In fact, I’ve already blogged nine different versions of banana bread or muffins. Why another one, then? This one was just that good.
Note: I received complimentary product for this post. All opinions are my own. New, inventive recipes are always fun – but sometimes you just want a classic. We love banana bread around here. Add in lots of chocolate, and you’ve got a treat that barely lasts 24 hours. It was also a great opportunity […]
The kids’ nap schedules have been wonky lately, so I’ve been getting some solo time with Julie while big brother naps – which means she’s been getting some kitchen projects of her own. Our favorite has become blender muffins. The idea behind blender muffins is that you just dump all the ingredients in to mix, […]
Today, I’m kicking off a series of kid-friendly recipes – ones they’ll be able to help make and like to eat. I generally get a lot of questions about how I incorporate Jake into the cooking process. There’s nothing really earth-shattering about my approach: I just let him jump in wherever he can. Yes, it’s […]
Disclosure: I received products from Barlean’s free as part of #RecipeMakeover week. All opinions are my own. While I’m pretty decent at whipping up a healthy dinner when need be, my baking projects are decidedly different. Tackling a makeover of one of my most-frequently-baked items – banana bread – seemed like the perfect challenge. As I […]
I have been in total use-it-up or throw-it-out mode. I think it’s part of nesting. I’ve cleaned out both freezers, the refrigerator, the pantry and our overflow canned good stock in the basement the last few days. I’m not sure the kitchen has ever looked better! We had a few bananas that were just past […]
There are a few reasons I love doing recipe swaps. One is that it encourages me to post (hello, unplanned blog break). Another is that I often find things I didn’t know I had in common with other bloggers. Like, the perpetual search for the perfect banana bread. I currently have three banana bread or […]
I haven’t tackled that many kitchen projects since Jake was born, but when we ended up with a pile of over-ripe bananas, I decided it was time to get back to it. I’ve waned to try this recipe for a while – but never seemed to end up with enough bananas for it. Even though this is a quick bread, […]
