Banana Bread Brownie/Cake

First new recipe of 2019! But is it brownie or cake? Well, the recipe says brownie but mine ended up more like a cake. A delicious cake. I think my pan was a size too small, thus making the batter thicker. It took twice as long to cook than what the recipe said. I’ve never made icing this way before either so that was another fun treat.

Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

‘Tis the season for cranberries! An exciting time, because I freaking love cranberries. I made this bread for a post-Thanksgiving get together and forgot it in the fridge. D:

So there was some for home AND some to share with my coworkers and this recipe has received glowing reviews.

Goodbye Summer – Recipes

I have the day off of work to go and see the one and only, Ozzy Osbourne in concert tonight. So I’m sitting on my wonderful patio having coffee with the dogs, which I’ve been able to do so little this summer due to the awful mugginess that plagued us most of the season, thinking that I am ready to say goodbye to summer. Autumn is my season (and it’s right around the corner!) and I’m ready to indulge it for everything it’s worth.

I haven’t done a lot of baking this year but there was a light lunch date with family in which I was asked to make some things to bring. What should I end the season with? Blueberries!

Both recipes really added to our little lunch date. Laid out alongside cookies, a fruit platter and cheese, meat, cracker platters, they were a perfect addition.

How are you saying goodbye to summer?

Strawberry Dump Cake

Like baked goods but baking isn’t really in your wheel house? Crockpot baking recipes are sweet goods made easy. Minimal effort and then you literally dump it in your slow cooker and walk away.

The draw back to massively cutting back sugar in your life is that this cake mix is just too sweet.

If you don’t have that issue, the flavor combinations with this type of recipe are endless.

Cream Cheese Banana Bread

There are almost always bananas in my house. Nine times out of ten, my husband won’t eat them because he knows if they start to brown, I’ll turn them into some sort of delectable treat. Problem is, I’ve made so many now that I’m scouring the internet for new banana treats to try. I’ve found some fun new things that I look forward attempting, but until then, here’s a banana bread with one ingredient I haven’t tried making it with yet.

This bread was incredibly moist. I’m cringing at that word but it’s the best I can think of to describe it. Easy to make recipe.

Blueberry Cheesecake Cookies

I tried two new recipes this past Fourth of July and was annoyed with both of them. Doesn’t happen often so the fact that I had two less than awesome recipes in a row, had me slapping things around in the kitchen. Both tasted better than they look so that was a small plus.

This recipe requires you to let dough set in the fridge for 30 minutes. 30 minutes did nothing to harden it up. (That’s what she said.) I stuck it in the freezer for 15+ minutes and that seemed to do the trick. EXCEPT, after about 2 minutes of scooping dough, it went right back to being tacky. I was so annoyed that I just started flinging it on the cookie sheet with zero fucks about what it looked like. I was also so annoyed that I didn’t even do the last step of giving it a lemon glaze.
