Banana Pancakes

If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you know that my favorite meal of the day is breakfast.  And I can definitely load up on the bad stuff: pancakes, waffles, cinnamon rolls, french toast, etc.  Those by far are my guilty pleasures.  But it’s so much freaking sugar and for someone who is trying to be more conscious of how I’m eating, it can be hard to resist.

6 Components You Need For Making The Most Delicious & Filling Salad

5 Apple Recipes for Fall

This past weekend, the family and I went up to Northern Georgia in Blue Ridge to try some apple picking at Mercier Orchard.  Apple picking is a fond memory I had growing up in Illinois.  I remember coming home with bags full of apples.  Funny thing is, I don’t remember making anything with them, simply snacking. I loved it so much growing up as a kid, I suppose I use having a daughter as an excuse to try it again (although do I really need an excuse?)  She absolutely loved it.  There were apples in both hands and she did […]
