I’ve got a great recipe for you today. It is one that I have been wanting to share with you for quite a while now. It is also the first recipe I ever created. I was really nervous and didn’t know if it was going to turn out the way I had hoped, and to my surprise, it totally did. It was a thrilling feeling and I hope ya’ll will love them just as much as I do. Not only are they a great afternoon snack or dessert, but they also make for a yummy breakfast. I ended up sharing ours with new neighbors that had just moved into the neighborhood and I am pretty sure they were a great hit. Feel free to share them with your loved ones or keep them in a special place just for yourself, I am not going to judge :).
Now that school is back in full swing, I thought it would be fun to share my homemade pancake recipe. It is super easy and fast to whip up. It will not only please the entire family, but it will also leave mommy or daddy feeling good about feeding something wholesome to their loved ones.
Happy Friday, Everyone!
Today I am sharing my recipe for the best Banana Bread you will ever make and ultimately sink your teeth into. This recipe was passed down to me by my mother-in-law, who is a great cook. It is also a good basic recipe that you can add anything you desire to. I sometimes add chocolate chips (what else?), dried fruit, or nuts. Use whatever your heart desires. A handful (about half a cup) should be more than enough.
This recipe always reminds me of my husband’s sister, Rachel, who absolutely adores this bread. There’s no way I could be sharing this recipe today without mentioning her name. She is the one who first introduced me to it and prepares it for pretty much any get-together or trip we go on. It really is the perfect thing to bring to a party, potluck, new mom or neighbor. It usually doesn’t last very long, but in case you do have any leftovers, it will keep extremely well in your freezer for a couple of weeks.
It’s hot, hot, hot outside! And I absolutely love it. We Midwesterners are used to drastic temperatures. I am pretty sure we can have an hour long conversation about the differing conditions. It is no secret that Minnesota is known for its massive amounts of snow and utterly cold temperatures in the winter and beyond. A little over three months ago we were hit with a massive snowstorm and thought that spring would never find its way. Back then I could only dream of temperatures that would allow me to step outside without snow pants, boots, and winter coat. Because I love summertime (don’t get me wrong, I can appreciate all seasons… can’t wait for pumpkin-themed-everything to get here), I am planning on soaking up every ray of sunshine as long as I possibly can, I decided to make you a drink today!
