Homemade Banana Bread

How many times do we buy bananas and never eat them before they turn brown? Oh I admit, I’m a bit guilty in doing this. However, I think subconsciously I tell myself when they are brown, they are ready for me to use. The darker the banana, the better it is for homemade banana bread. Today, I will share my recipe for making the delicious homemade banana bread that I used to make in our bakery when we owned it.

Bananas that are over ripened work best!

Homemade Blueberry (or any berry) Muffins

Oh muffins! I just adore muffins, especially blueberry, or any berry, muffins. Fresh, homemade blueberry muffins. They are good with a big cup of coffee or tea in the morning for breakfast. Or they are good for a snack any time of the day. Oh how I love muffins!

Fresh blueberries from the one blueberry bush I have on the farm.

Muffins also come in all varieties and sizes as well. But when it is blueberry season, we make blueberry muffins. Warm, fresh out of the oven blueberry muffins are my favorite.

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

I adore comfort food and lots of cheese! My favorite and easiest recipe of Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo hits all of the comfort food feels for our family. It is very cheesy and super delicious. And although I serve it with a side salad full of healthy vegetables, this meal definitely fits into the comfort food category.

Today, I made Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo for my family because my kiddos actually ask for it. When I ask everyone, “So, what meal would you like me to put on the weekly menu?” 99% of the time, this one makes the list. (I’ll share others with you over the next few months.)
