Happy Monday! Welcome to the last full week of July. I know I’ve said it before, but summer just seems like a blur to me so far. I went to the mall on Saturday and couldn’t believe all the back to school sales that were going on. Crazy! Also, I accidentally smelled a candle that practically screamed fall and I totally wasn’t ready for it. I adore that beautiful season, but no, just no.

I was relieved coming back home to a tall glass of iced coffee and a big slice of Banana Split Cake. Summer at its finest.

So I may have mentioned here and there that breakfast isn’t really my thing. I’ve always been much more of a grazer than a person who eats 3 meals each day. The only “real” meal I consume is at dinner time when my hubby and I get to sit down together.

I like eating small portions whenever I get hungry and that usually starts somewhere around 10 AM or so. One of the many reasons why I love brunches so much; whoever invented those definitely had me in mind, ha.

Even though muffins aren’t the first thing that most of us think about when it comes to brunch, it wouldn’t be complete without them either.

Since some of the brunch food can be a bit on the heavy side, I thought I would lighten it up with a healthy muffin that only takes a couple of ingredients and a few minutes to prepare. [Read more…]

The Best Banana Bread

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.
