Phew. It was a busy day. Like most of you, I’m beat at the end of the day.  Whether you’re working, or taking care of kids, in school…or a combination of all 3, its nice to be able to sit and relax for a bit at the end of the day. I was thinking that […]

Brown bananas. We all get them. For me, its almost a weekly thing.  Its a shame to waste them, but there is only so much banana bread you can make.  That’s why I thought these banana chocolate chip lunchbox cookies would be a great use of ripe bananas. They are nut-free, so make them a […]

When you’re a pumpkin addict like me, you’ll find that you always have extra pumpkin hanging out in the fridge. Especially after you open one of those huge cans. This is a delicious way to use pumpkin (leftover or not), and its a warm and comforting way to get your fix.  I haven’t had a […]
