Banana Bread

This is another recipe from the old recipe box… who knows how long I’ve had it for sure? I do know it is a great way to use up any old bananas that might be hanging around your kitchen.

This also works great for the freezer. Just allow the bread to cool completely before wrapping in plastic wrap and placing it in the freezer.

Applesauce Cake

I don’t rightly remember where this recipe came from but I do know that my little brother loved it when he was just a little thing… so it’s been around for a while now. You can use this Homemade Buttercream Icing to frost it or give it just a sprinkle of powdered sugar or leave it plain.

Sensible Scrambled Eggs

I love eggs whether it be fried, boiled, deviled, egg salad, omelets, or even a scrambled egg sandwich. They are so easy to make and so good for you. Here is a quick and healthier version of the scrambled eggs that we eat on a regular basis.

I just made a couple of sandwiches for Mr. Awesome and myself yesterday when we were feeling a bit hangry in between meals and they certainly hit the spot. These would also be really good for a quick breakfast with some sausage or bacon and a side of Super Simple Sauteed Spinach. Continue reading “Sensible Scrambled Eggs”

Made From Scratch Monkey Bread

My kids love monkey bread and they love helping to make it! Check out the slide show for some pics:

It’s so easy and those cute knives help them feel like real chefs will easing my mind. Those mixing bowls have been a life saver too and the lids make them perfect for this recipe. I can’t always find the 4-pack of canned biscuits (and I’ve been trying to make more things from scratch) so i have used our regular biscuit recipe at times. You just need to divide the dough into 1 inch balls and continue on if you decide to do make your own biscuit dough.

As you can see from the last picture, it goes really fast around here… so fast I didn’t have time to catch a picture of the whole thing! Continue reading “Made From Scratch Monkey Bread”

This recipe was adapted from a recipe that we found in the United States Cookbook under the state of Georgia. The original recipe was called ‘Peanutty Peanut Butter and Banana Bread’ and was baked in a loaf pan for 1 hour and 10 minutes at 350. Our recipe has some variations to the original ingredients but would probably be just as good baked in a loaf pan as well and would probably be even better with a sprinkle of chocolate chips added to the batter.

Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits

I feel like I haven’t posted a new recipe in a while so I thought I should share these yummy treats that we had over the weekend. I make a double batch as they seem to disappear as quickly as they come out of the oven.

My kids loved helping with these. They can measure and stir as well as practice kneading their own little batch of dough and then cut out their own little biscuits too. Continue reading “Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits”

Cinnamon Roll Muffins

I had all intentions of making some delicious cinnamon rolls on Sunday morning however Mr. Awesome had an awesome surprise planned and I just didn’t have the time. Well Jacob had his little heart set on those rolls and as we all know this child loves to eat. He also loves coming up with new recipes and he decided we should try to make some Cinnamon Roll Muffins.

I combined the filling from our Cinnamon Roll Pancakes and Basic Muffin Recipe with a simple glaze to come up to sweeten the deal. The kids loved helping to mix the muffins and make the swirls. They also really enjoyed eating them too!

Did I mention how wonderful the house smells when you bake these? I will definitely need to make a double batch the next time around. I may also try this out in a loaf pan or as a super easy coffee cake.

Short on time? You could mix up everything and set it in the fridge until the next morning and then surprise your family with the aroma of these delicious treats. They will think you slaved all morning long! Continue reading “Cinnamon Roll Muffins”

Pigs in a Blanket

This recipe is as old as I can remember. You can also use canned biscuits in place of the crescent rolls. This is a recipe the kids love to help with!

The minis are perfect for appetizers or snacks… I have to keep an eye on them when I am making them as they tend to disappear as soon as they hit the serving tray! Continue reading “Pigs in a Blanket”
