Cinnamon Swirl Banana Bread

CinnBanaBreadCollage

I’ve talked before about how C and I always buy bananas and then never eat all of them before they end up turning spotty brown. Lately, since I’ve been trying to be a *LITTLE* healthier when it comes to indulging in sweet breads, I have been using the spotty bananas for other things. Did you know you can unpeel them, slice them and freeze them to make things like smoothies or even ice cream!? Or throw them into a saucepan with some butter and sugar and voila! You’ve got bananas … [Read more...]

They’ve always been a favorite indulgence of mine. And this year for C’s birthday celebration just us, I decided to see what they’d be … [Read more...]

Wildtree Wednesday: Savory Garlic Popcorn

13741

Happy Wednesday! The past few weeks I've talked about why I love Wildtree, our taco seasoning, and grapeseed oils. I went back and forth on what I should share with you all next and I decided to start on something easy and delicious! Before I met Cody I had never had stove-top popcorn before. Once I tasted one of those hot half-popped kernels I knew there was no going back. And there wasn't. A few years later I read how microwave popcorn is extremely bad for you. I highly recommend … [Read more...]

Toy Story Cookies

I was able to do some Toy Story cookies for a repeat customer of mine a few weeks ago. These were so much fun! The whole time I kept repeating "Reach for the sky!" and "There's a snake in my boot!" I think C thought I had lost my mind until he realized what I was doing. Toy Story has always been one of my favorites. It was so much fun to make the movie come to life on a cookie! … [Read more...]

C loves loves loves tacos. So much, it’s worth saying it three times to really get the point across. When we first started dating, he told me wanted me over for dinner. He made tacos. He swooned me then with his bad taco makin’ skills and every taco night at our house is another one for the books. I may be the cook in our house, but he’s definitely the taco master! That being said, when I was introduced to Wildtree, what I found out about the beloved taco seasoning we’d been buying in the … [Read more...]

PB & J Cupcakes

I always feel like I start off these posts with …when I was little… but that’s where the majority of my inspiration comes from. There are so many memories that revolve around food from my childhood that I am often taken back to a happy place. Even with something as simple as peanut butter and jelly. Do y’all remember Goober Grape? I’ll never forget the first time my parents brought it home from the store. Peanut butter AND jelly swirled together in one jar. I mean, what could be better … [Read more...]
