Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Two of my favorite things! Brought together, they were pretty good. My motto when it comes to peanut butter however is, “MORE PEANUT BUTTER!” Seriously, I can’t get enough.

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.

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.

C&M Party Foods 2018

I survived! Despite being sick, we were able to rock the party until 2:30 am. (My boss and his girlfriend are party monsters and close out every one of our parties.) Hosting a party is a lot of work and can get expensive quick, but it’s almost always worth the hassle. It was a great party, lots of fun was had and new friends were made. Special thanks to Ignited Moth for riding in on her white horse to help save the day! (Meaning she helped me whip together the food before people started to arrive.)

The dessert: Lemon Cupcakes

Recipe Here. (Now obviously, I did not do the raspberry frosting. Instead, we went with a mousse that Ignited Moth taught me to make years ago. Of which, she whipped up personally for me. I think I’ve posted it before but I’ll post it again.)

Lemon Mousse: 1 package lemon instant pudding, 1 tub cool whip and milk. Add just enough milk to pudding mix to make a cake batter like consistency, then fold in cool whip. Fold until blended. Do not over blend.)

The rest of the things I made I did not get pictures of but I’m going to post links to some of the recipes as they turned out really well. Besides these few things, I threw together chicken salad and egg salad croissant sandwiches, pin wheel ham & cheese sandwiches, fruit bowl and spinach artichoke dip with crackers and bread. (All of which were store bought besides the egg salad.)

Remember folks, it’s important to feed people when you have them over drinking. It’s so easy to get trashed on an empty stomach. If you want them to be able to drive home sober, feed and water them. Also, be willing to take their keys and have them stay the night. Friends don’t let friends drive drunk.
