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).
