Sweet Sunday: Easy Banana Bread

Today I had a few very ripe bananas and decided to make a little tasty treat for the family. My Grammy mailed this recipe to me when I was in college, along with $5 to buy a pound of butter and a loaf pan. Great memories and pretty great recipe too. It seems like we never end… Continue reading Sweet Sunday: Easy Banana Bread

Sunday Sweets: Blonde Brownies

UPDATE: So I guess I really am blonde (pun soooo intended).  I just realized that I’ve already posted this recipe. I guess I thought it was just that good.

Mommy Review Monday: Munchkin Snack Catcher

I would give the Munchkin Snack Catcher a solid 7.  Here’s what I like: They come in a two-pack with two different colors. Great for twins. Kate uses pink and Clara orange. In reality, they get mixed up quite a bit, despite our efforts.  They have easy to grip handles.  The bottom is non-slip, rubbery… Continue reading Mommy Review Monday: Munchkin Snack Catcher

Repurposing Food: Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle 

This is another repurposing recipe. When I say recipe, I really mean more like guidelines for making something you need to get rid of look good. See another post for another similar trifle.  I had some leftover pound cake in the freezer and wanted to fix something with it and incorporate cheesecake….because who doesn’t like… Continue reading Repurposing Food: Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle

Last Minute Gifting: Family Movie Night

Have I ever mentioned that I am the queen of procrastination? Well, they say the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem. So I’ll admit it: I wait until the last minute sometimes. Disclaimer: I did buy the almost all gifts early, mostly thanks to Amazon.  Wrapping…now that’s a whole other story.… Continue reading Last Minute Gifting: Family Movie Night

Photo Friday- Tis’ the Season

Oh what fun we had at Anna’s class Christmas party! Our class was in charge of the snacks. Due to lots of allergies, everything at our school has to be individually wrapped and cleared by Nurse Gina, who does a great job keeping our kids safe and healthy. Enter traditional white Little Debbie Christmas Trees.… Continue reading Photo Friday- Tis’ the Season
