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.
Ripe bananas are incorporated into the dough, along with maple syrup, giving these rolls an amazing banana bread-esque flavoring.
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 […]
These pancakes mix up in the blender and then are baked in a sheet pan – which makes them super quick, and super easy – and, as a bonus, the whole family can sit down to warm pancakes at the same time!
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.

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.

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 […]
One of my local grocery stores does a special meal-of-the-week. For a fairly heavy discount, you get a meal for four that’s easy to prepare. And often, they come with dinner. Which is why, nearly every night when we sit down to eat, my kids now ask, “does this come with dessert?”
