I usually end up with a few
rotten.. really ripe bananas at least once a week in our house. My husband made banana bread last week (I’ll have to share that recipe soon, too). This week’s ripe bananas were made into yummy muffins. I’m a sucker for chocolate this pregnancy (yep, still pregnant!) so y’all know I had to throw some chocolate chips in these bad boys. This is literally the easiest muffin recipe. Enjoy!
Treats on treats on treats. That’s pretty much my diet at this point in my pregnancy. Just kidding.. I eat healthy half the time, but if I get a craving, I’m all over it. The other day I wanted a fully loaded treat; some kind of cookie bars. And these hit the spot!
It didn’t even get into the 70’s here yesterday, so naturally I spent the day snuggled up with my girls, pretending it’s fall. I’ve got all of my pumpkin decor out around the house, but I’m holding out on that fall garden flag — it’s sitting beside the door, just waiting on September 1st. You’re welcome, neighbors.
I’m the type of person who always orders the chocolate version of everything: cake, ice cream, cookies.. if chocolate is an option, I’m all over it. Especially here lately being 7 months pregnant. #GimmeAllTheChocolate
If you saw my post about one of my current favorite snacks, summer salad, then you already know our garden is out of control right now. We’re constantly getting tomatoes, squash, cucumbers and zucchini. There is actually a huge pile on the counter right now that I’m wondering how we’re going to eat before it all goes bad. I’ve been cooking squash, onions and zucchini together and eating it with my meals for weeks, but recently we decided to try to make zucchini bread. Confession: My husband actually made it — and it’s so, so good! I snapped a few pictures of this bread and had quite a few people ask for the recipe, so here it is.. finally!
Well it’s no secret that Virginia is going through some serious hot weather right now. It’s summertime, so heatwaves are to be expected. I’m trying to embrace the sunshine because before we know it, it will be freezing and I’ll be wishing for these hot summer days. I’ve been preferring smaller, cold snacks over hot, filling food lately and this Banana Nutella Milkshake is one of my favorite treats this summer. It’s cool, sweet and refreshing.. and super easy to make!
We are finally getting vegetables from our garden and I have to say, it feels like such an accomplishment. I usually can’t keep plants alive very long, so I’m pretty excited about this!
Kale chips are one of my favorite snacks and everytime I make them, I ask myself why I don’t more often. You can use whatever seasoning you’d like and they’re super easy to make!
To be completely honest, these had me at “no-bake”. I’m a fan of fast and easy recipes and this is one of them! I’ve made these many times and I love keeping them in the fridge to grab when we’re headed out the door. My kids love them, too! This recipe is pretty basic and super flexible, so if you have allergies to avoid, ingredients can be easily substituted for other ones.
