Blueberry Banana Bread

I have baked so many breads that it’s finally getting to the point where I’m not 100% positive that I have not done this recipe before. I don’t THINK I have.

Either way, I think it’s perfectly acceptable to re-post good recipes.

The grocery stores have been loaded with blueberries and it’s hard to resist buying them every single time I go shopping. Obviously, at least once, I did not resist.

This is an easy recipe with your classic banana bread taste, peppered with pops of delicious tartness. Great for summer picnics.

Fruity Pebbles Muffins

America, fuck yeah! We had a relatively quite day on the fourth. We stayed home, had a friend over, grilled some food and binge watched Stranger Things season 3. (Not finished yet.) It also gave me time to do a little baking. I agreed to make something for another fourth of July party but the boys wanted something to snack on in the mean time.

The nice thing once you get into baking is you usually have so many supplies left over from previous recipes. I only had to purchase Fruity Pebbles and a small container of greek yogurt for this one.

This recipe actually sounds better than it is. The cake itself is very dense, with light flavoring. If I were to rate it overall, it would be 3 out of 5 stars.

Easy enough to make though and it will impress your stoner friends.

Cake Mix Cookie Bars

To some people the idea of baking is intimidating, thus they avoid it. They dream of the ability but they don’t take that leap. My advice, as only a decent baker definitely not a pro, is to start easy and build your confidence from there. That’s what I did. It all started with an easy quick bread recipe and every once in awhile I push myself out of my comfort zone to learn something new. (Not the case with this recipe, I wanted easy.)

This recipe is a great place to start for the beginning baker. It was a hit at the work potluck and it’s so easy. I’m going to make a second batch for home since I have enough left over ingredients besides one.

I should have gotten a picture of them all sectioned up. But, I didn’t so this is what you get.

Peanut Butter Fudge Cheesecake Parfaits

Don’t you wish you were one of my coworkers? If you didn’t before, you might now.

These tasty lil’ bitches were not hard to make except for ONE thing: homemade whipped cream. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again, don’t be like me and make sure you read the recipe all the way through. If you’re like me, still haven’t unpacked your stand mixer and don’t own a hand mixer, prepare to work your muscles. It takes a LONG time before whipped cream takes form with regular man power. After 15 minutes, I was forced to ask my husband for help. We’ve learned now that he’s a human power mixer. It still took another 15 minutes before it was the correct consistency.

Despite that, these were awesome. Pretty rich though so most people could only eat a half at a time.

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.
