Blueberry Strawberry Banana Bread

I am so glad that summer is about here.  I love when it is nice out almost every day and I don't have to worry about wearing a jacket.  One of the best parts of summer is all the fruits that are in season.  Strawberries are by far my favorite, but we always buy blueberries as well because my son is … [Read more...]

I cannot believe that Easter is coming up this weekend.  The spring is starting to go so fast.  My son has already participated in a few Easter egg hunts and he understands it much better than he did last year.  He loves finding the eggs and opening them to see what is inside.  Something else that … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Banana Trail Mix

Nutella Banana Quesadilla

First of all I want to say that my thoughts are with those that were affected by the tragedy in Boston today.  It is so sad that situations like this happen.
