Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Week after week, I buy bananas when I go grocery shopping and fail to eat them throughout the week.  I didn’t want to waste them, so I went searching for a new banana recipe.  I have tried multiple different banana muffin recipes, this one included peanut butter so I was sold.   These muffins are…

Cherry Puffs

I can remember picking cherries with grandma from her neighbor’s tree when I was younger.  I ate more than I picked, but I think Max was okay with that.  She made pies, tarts, and jellies, each better than the next.  These memories led me to search for a cherry-filled recipe for day 13 of the…

Stuffed French Toast

In college, I frequented IHOP – whenever I went with my buddy Mitchell, he always got French Toast, it ALWAYS looked so good.  Day 7 of the August challenge, something stuffed, and my memories of Mitch’s french toast led me to make Stuffed French Toast.  Katie and Sara are in town to see the local…

Day 4: Non-traditional pizza (Fruit Pizza) Today’s challenge was spurred by one of my great friends, Emily.  You see – she and her husband are pizza connoisseurs.  (Although we disagree on the subject of Domino’s… everyone knows Domino’s is SO good!) Every time we get together, pizza will undoubtedly be involved – we have actually…

Day 3 of the August Challenge – Donuts.  My love of donuts started very young, doesn’t everyone’s?
