    Food Find Friday – Silk Almondmilk Yogurt

    I love the grocery store. Think what you might about me for this, but I really do! I love picking out what I am going to eat for the week – seeing what’s on sale and maybe should become a surprise guest on the menu. And most of all, I love trying new things. This past week when I was perusing the organic foods aisle (I still have so much to learn about organics) I saw something interesting. Yogurt alternatives. Now, I am not a vegan. But, I do like almond and soy milk! So why not yogurt? As a result, or Food Find for this Friday is…. drum roll…

    Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

    So its November – which means for the past month, our dear friend pumpkin has been getting ALL of the attention. Don’t get me wrong, I am guilty of pumpkin-centric thinking as well! In fact, I JUST posted a recipe for Classic Pumpkin Bread, so seriously – I am not one to judge. Pumpkin bread is obviously delicious. Adding chocolate chips obviously makes it even MORE delicious. But I think its time we take a step back and remember another on of my favorite quickbread flavors – Chocolate Chip BANANA Bread. If you had to choose only quickbread to eat for the rest of your life – pumpkin or banana –…

    Classic Pumpkin Bread

    Fall is just flying by – I can hardly believe it. The weather is getting colder, Halloween is tomorrow! I figure it is finally time the most ultimate and classic fall recipe before pumpkin season comes to an end – Classic Pumpkin Bread. Clearly I love fall flavors – between Pumpkin Cheesecake Crumble Bars, Pumpkin Spice Waffles, Salted Dark Chocolate Caramel Bars, and 10 Must Try Recipes with the BEST Fall Flavors – clearly I can’t get enough. This recipe has been in my family for who knows how long – until now, it has only been written on an old notecard, scrawled in pencil that fades a little more each year. Rich, dense,…

    Blueberry Pancakes

    HAPPY SATURDAY!! I am so excited to be home and hang with our newest puppy, Daisy!! I love her so much already and it has only been a week! Having her around is great – but I am forced to constantly be on the lookout for pees and poos, delightful, I know. It’s all making me just want to clean, clean, clean! Time for a fall cleaning! Guys, I know spring cleaning is the true “term” – but around this time of year, I always feel like a good ol’ fall cleaning is necessary! You know, to clear out all the old stuff from summer, and get ready to bunker…

    Easy Caramel Sticky Buns

    During the summer, I have a few pretty standard meals that I rotate through for breakfast: Cereal, yogurt, fruit, smoothie, etc. Pretty much anything that is light, cool or refreshing. These items are all easy to put together fast and great on the go (except cereal – that is not easy on the go – unless you eat it dry). But as the weather gets colder, my cravings at breakfast totally change. I want warmth. Rich flavor. Something to wake me up and prepare my body to brave against the cold day ahead. Eggs, bacon, pancakes, waffles, oatmeal – warm, delicious items that make you feel warm and fuzzy inside and out!! However, there is one item that…
