Blueberry Swirl Banana Bread

I feel like half my life is spent trying to reinvent banana bread.  I guess it’s because I always have overripe bananas lying around.  Last night, I decided to get creative and swirl a blueberry compote throughout my loaf.  It was delicious.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Bars

Listen, we’ve all done it.  Sometime, around the beginning of March, we’re at Target.  We have a cart full of crap we don’t really need but had to buy, two kids in the cart, latte in hand, and we pass by the Easter Candy aisle.  “I don’t need any of that…” we tell ourselves.  “Oh,… Continue reading Reese’s Peanut Butter Bars

Life Changing Brownies

Life Changing Brownies sounds a little dramatic.  I guess that’s the effect I’m going for though.  The original title of this recipe was “Frosted Fudge Brownies.”  After making them for myself, I feel this title is grossly unrepresentative of how amazing they actually are.  “Life Changing Brownies is much more accurate.

Because there is nothing, NOTHING like a fresh bagel warm out of the oven, especially if there is cheese involved. I made… Continue reading Homemade Garlic and Cheddar Bagels

Blueberry Banana Bread

I really love banana bread.  I constantly find myself with overripe bananas and it is kind of the staple thing that I just whip up really quick when I do.  My kids love it, which is nice, I can’t stay away from it, which is bad (for my thighs) and it’s just a really delicious… Continue reading Blueberry Banana Bread
