My Kid Didn't Eat All the Berries So Here We Are: A Pie Recipe

Since becoming a mom my whole world got rocked. Obviously, the emotional part and the physical part. People joke about the financial part but seriously, it is rough. Hence, I’m selling my clothes and attempting to monetize a blog. So I don’t want to waste anything time, money, and food. I look at my fridge ingredients like a puzzle to be solved as opposed to just pulling something out to eat. While it’s imperative that we eat fresh fruits and veggies, it’s hard to eat them all in time before they go bad. This is where a good go-to use up your produce recipe comes in. I like to use this basic banana bread recipe to use up my brown bananas. We had a bunch of berries and I decided to make a pie. I’m including a basic crust and filling recipe that you can substitute with the berries of your choice with a few adaptations. This doesn’t take that long and it allows for a sweet dessert that you can share in your home or take somewhere (ie when you check your calendar and it’s Teacher Appreciation Week and you need to bring something in and you totally forgot and you don’t want to run to the store).

Sweets for Your Sweeties: Chocolate Cinnamon Bundt Cake with an Orange Glaze

My husband and I got married in January so we try not to spend money on Valentine’s Day. I like to make a decadent dessert for us. I’m not a huge fan of buttercream and I’m terrible at piping. In which case, bundt cakes are the best. You can be creative and it’s something that you can bake and serve. You can make it ahead of dinner and still have the energy to cook later. If you have a small child, it’s a perfect naptime task. This past weekend I decided to make a bundt cake for my fam. Both my husband and mother love it. So make it for your valentine, Galentine, or palentine.

Sunday Night Baking: Basic Banana Bread

When I was a moody teen/lady in my twenties I wanted to be anything but basic. Now that I’m a working mom in my thirties-give me all the basic things. Leggings=best thing ever! Pumpkin spice rub that all over me. Food Network instead of some gritty drama? Count me in.
