Pineapple-Carrot Oatish Muffins

This picture is the quick oats version. It’s been a while since I shared anything with you all. I apologize for this. Sometimes I sit and wonder how life got this busy. I have been helping out with a few committees, and attended a couple charity events. And this Friday, I am handing out race packages Read More

Frozen Bananas

All week, I have been craving bananas, but I did not want to eat a banana on its own. I wanted to make a bread item, so made my tried ‘n true Banana Bread (I have the recipe on my Banana Nut Bread entry). This loaf has no nuts or seeds. This loaf has blueberries. Read More

Strata

Pumpkin Raisin Scones

It was about 10 years ago that I started experimenting with pumpkin.  I strongly recommend roasting your own, then pureeing versus buying canned.  Yes, much more work, but it is much healthier to make your own.  And the taste and texture ….. wow! These scones can also double as cookies, depending on who you’re catering to Read More
