It’s strawberry picking time, y’all! At our house, this means it’s time to start making strawberry bread. Tennessee’s strawberry season is short and very, very sweet — and since it’s in May before school is out, it can be tough to find the time as a family to pick berries. This year, though, we did […]

Delicious Strawberry Bread

Delicious Strawberry Bread Recipe

You can tell from the recipes section of this blog that I am a huge fan of fruit breads. From Peach Carrot Bread to Applesauce Nut Bread, I try to bake one at least every other week for my family. My kids love them, they’re far better for them than cookies or chips, and they’re […]

I made these muffins for my daughter’s birthday sleepover last weekend and they were a perfect breakfast treat. Not too sweet, not too rich, moist, and delicious right out of the oven.

Blueberry Streusel Muffins

I’ve been scouring the web lately for healthy ideas for my kids’ lunchboxes. And I’ve been coming up empty. Kudos to you if  bell peppers in the shape of a face is all it takes to get your kids to eat them. My kids are, uh, smarter than that. They won’t eat it UNLESS IT […]

Applesauce Nut Bread

This fruit nut bread is FULL OF WIN, as far as I’m concerned. It’s chock full of carrots, peaches, and pecans, it only calls for a cup of sugar, and my kids LOVE it. (The adults do, too.) Victory!   INGREDIENTS 3/4 cup chopped pecans 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup sugar 1 teaspoon […]
