    10 Fall Recipes You Should Be Eating

    Fall is here!  Daylight hours are getting shorter and the evening air is crisper.  The sunsets, the incredible sunsets this time of year!  Get those chunky cable knit sweaters out of hiding because Fall is upon us!  Brittle brown leaves falling from the trees that crunch when stepped on.  These are just of few of my favorite things. I find myself grabbing a hot cup of coffee and sitting by the fire reading my cookbooks like they are novels.  Do you ever do that? I get my brightly colored post it’s out and mark all the fall recipes that I intend to make for my family.  I probably actually make…

    Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

    How is it that bananas can be a tiny bit green when you buy them and within a matter of a day become over ripe with dark spots?  The other day I had a bunch of almost too green to eat bananas and the next time I looked at them they were overripe?   That’s exactly where banana bread comes in.  It’s the perfect way to get those bananas eaten that normally my family would not touch.  I hate seeing food go to waste so I either make this delicious breakfast treat or I freeze the skinned bananas for smoothies. This time I added heavenly delicious chocolate chips to my…

    Breakfast Quesadilla

      Do you remember when I made these Homemade Cheese Crackers with @RealCaliforniaCheese?  If you do then you remember me talking about a campaign that the wonderful people at Real California Cheese have going on to help the victims of hurricanes Harvey & Irma.  Since I last spoke about this campaign wildfires raged through parts of California, so this campaign will also help those who were affected. Here is all you need to do to help, take a photo of the Real California Milk seal like this one: Or this one between now and December 31, 2017.  Share the photo to your social media and add the hashtag #SealsForGood and…

Everyone is trying to get out of the house at the same time while I’m scrambling to find a nutritious breakfast for us to eat before we all leave. A while back, I decided to do this one small thing on Sundays to make the weekday mornings go a lot more smoothly.  The solution you may ask? To make our weekday breakfast ahead of time.  I knew I needed the breakfast to be something that we would all love and be good for us.…

    Breakfast Tacos

    Why reserve Taco Tuesday just for dinner time tacos?  Serve these delicious breakfast tacos any day of the week! These breakfast tacos are so easy I’m almost embarrassed to be writing them as a recipe, but they are so delicious I didn’t want to keep them all to myself!  Ever since I first made them I’ve been eating them for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  They’re that good. The two things that can elevate these breakfast tacos even more is to use this homemade salsa recipe and this homemade refried beans recipe.  I like to make a big pot of the refried beans and keep them in my freezer for when…

    Pan Fried Cinnamon Sugar Bananas

    Do you know just how good bananas are for you? I read that we should all be eating two bananas a day, especially people with anxiety, high blood pressure, heart problems, and stress (and who doesn’t have that?).  Bananas are one of the few fruits that contain the amino acid, tryptophan, plus vitamin B6.  The two nutrients together are a natural chemical that is known to relieve depression. That’s why these are the perfect morning and evening snack!  In a about 10 minutes you can be eating a delicious sweet drool-worthy (healthy) snack.  This recipe transforms the boring old bananas to something you can serve to dinner guests over ice…

I grab my laptop and my morning cup of coffee made perfect by adding 2 Caramel Macchiato creamers from International Delight, it tastes so yummy that I no longer visit my local coffee shop (and it saves me a ton of money).  Then, I start to make my grocery list. This week, I not only was thinking of our family meals, but I also started making a list of groceries for when our holiday guests are here. I love waking my overnight guests up to the delicious smell…
