Healthy Banana Muffins

Healthy Banana Muffins

For those of you who like my Facebook page, you may remember my impulse buy of a 40lb box of bananas (it was only $3!! I couldn’t pass it up!). Many good things have come out of that box of banana, but I think my favorite were these banana muffins. I tried a couple banana…


Zucchini Boats

Zucchini Boats

Made this for dinner last night and they were a huge hit! 1. They are “boats” how cool is it to get to eat a boat and steer it all around your plate while eating and 2. I told my kids it was basically pizza in a boat (back to point 1 on the boat)…


Green Beans with Tomato and Feta

Green Beans with Tomato and Feta

Whip this up based on what I had on hand was not at all intending to create something blog worthy, but it was delicious! My kids loved it and begged me to make it again the next night. My husband was disappointed he was missing out (seriously the point was since my husband wasn’t home…


Mushroom Stroganoff

Mushroom Stroganoff

I love stroganoff and I don’t know why but before the other night I hadn’t made it in a very long time, it used to be a regular early in my marriage and I *think* one of the first sauces I learned on my own to make from scratch rather than using a flavor packet…


Chocolate Espresso Pot de Creme

Chocolate Espresso Pot de Creme

Valentine’s Day is just a couple days away and nothing spells love to me like chocolate! I don’t care if it’s cliche, I just love chocolate. The meme that goes around facebook about something like if a woman’s upset try to console her if she growls stand at a distance and throw chocolate, so me,…


Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

In case homemade bread isn’t good¬†enough¬†lets put a big swirl of cinnamon sugar goodness through it! YUM! It takes a LOT of self control to not consume the whole loaf the minute it’s out of the oven. This bread is soo delicious! It’s great warm fresh out of the oven with some butter or later…


Spiced Eggnog

homemade eggnog

I love eggnog, I think I have always loved eggnog, I always loved getting eggnog steamers at the coffee shop as a kid and now love eggnog lattes. But a store bought container of eggnog is absolutely no competition for the deliciousness of homemade! I even know people that claim to not like eggnog, but…


Winter Squash and Kale Au Gratin

Squash and Kale Gratin

This is like the perfect fall gratin! So full of delicious fall flavors. I typically make it with butternut squash, but this past time (when I took that picture) I had half a kabocha squash in my fridge and I am so glad I used that! Every time I have kabocha squash I remind myself…


Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I must say these are not my *favorite* cookie and I hadn’t planned on posting a pumpkin cookie recipe, but I made these based on my typically chocolate chip cookie recipe I use and they were the best pumpkin chocolate chip cookies I have ever had! So I decided to go ahead and post on…


Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip

Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip

This dip was so good I could barely keep from eating it all! My first though is to serve it with graham crackers which is really good. But I have also found it to be excellent with cinnamon and sugar pita chips or slathered on a bagel (particularly a pumpkin bagel!) I also think it…
