Emma and I woke up early this morning and went straight to the kitchen to make this beautiful, healthy blueberry banana bread. No wordy posts from me today. Today is a busy Saturday, preparing for a special Sunday 🙂 And sorry! No fancy pictures either.
Chocolate and peanut butter are two of my favorite things. Especially paired together. I never buy candy, but if I had to, I’d go straight for Reese’s peanut butter cups. Any time I can get chocolate and peanut butter together, I do. And really, why wouldn’t you?
I realize now, I should have taken more pictures while I was making these for breakfast yesterday. I posted this picture on Facebook and Instagram and it became a hit. I had no idea so many people would want to give it a try.
These are delicious! Really. I actually like these more than buttermilk pancakes. And I love that you know everything that goes into these fluffy cakes of goodness. No preservatives. My 17-month-old devoured her serving. I think I may even be able to get my husband to eat these when he returns from this deployment (he’s not a big pancake fan).
I have no idea why, but I have been craving pot pie for over a week now. You’d think with hot temps outside, I’d stay away from recipes that call for using the oven. Wrong! Tonight I caved in and made this baby 🙂
I know it’s not pretty and perfect, but it sure tastes perfect! This was my first time making a homemade pot pie. After looking at recipes for days, I finally decided just to throw my own recipe together. Most of the recipes called for chicken, chicken broth, and some type of shortening, so I opted for a more healthy alternative (and veggie of course).
Here is a quick and easy vegetarian/vegan meal for you! 🙂 This would work great for a meatless Monday… or whatever day(s) of the week you decide to skip on meat. Very simple and delicious.
My toddler and I are smoothie addicts. Plain and simple. Since my daughter started eating solids, I’ve had a difficult time getting her to eat veggies — especially green veggies. But come on, what kid likes green veggies? Or veggies in general?
I make smoothies for myself daily. I always include a handful of organic kale or baby spinach (sometimes both), along with whatever fruits I’m craving. I really didn’t think that my daughter would care for it, but after one sip, she was hooked. Now I feel better knowing that she is getting both her fruits and veggies in each day.
Those of you who buy fresh kale or spinach know how quickly they wilt. I usually wash the kale and spinach as soon as I get it home so that I can put it in a freezer bag to freeze. You have to make sure to use it fairly quick, otherwise it gets that nasty freezer taste. Yuck.
