Banana Bread Muffins

Banana Bread Muffin

So, I’m literally obsessed and have an addiction to these Banana Bread Muffins.

In fact, I think it is safe to say that my whole family does.

I made these yesterday.  The recipe made 48 mini muffins and today, at 6:00pm.  They are literally all gone.

My poor family…… We have no self control.


These are actually a great after school treat, but unfortunately, my kids do not understand the idea of moderation.  Else they would have had these several days after school.  Maybe we need to work on that concept.



These are really great as a traveling alternative to grabbing fast food.  We tend to go out of town early in the morning and this involves us buying breakfast on the way a lot.

With the Holidays coming up quickly and people going out of town, why not make these the day before and pack them to go?


I promise they will go FAST!

Check out the video below that I made for these yummy little muffins!

Happy Baking!

Ghoulishly Good For You Smoothie

I love smoothies!  They are yummy and sweet and best of all, GOOD FOR YOU!

Goulishly Good For You, that is!  *Pretty sure that’s a word?


You can use any kind of blender, but recently, I bought a Blendtec and I haven’t regretted it for one second!

This thing makes a mean smoothie, amongst other things.

It literally makes it as smooth as the ones you would buy in the store.  Most people wouldn’t care about that, but I have never been able to get that consistency until now.  🙂

Here is what I did:


I took a couple handfuls of fresh spinach, 1 kiwi, 1/2 cup fresh blueberries, 1 apple (sliced into wedges), 1 whole banana (peeled of course), and 1 1/2 cups water.


Then I tossed all the ingredients into the blender, secured the lid and pressed the smoothie button.  *For a regular blender, just blend until completely smooth.

I should also mention that I like my smoothies more on the thinner side so that they are easier to drink.  If you prefer yours on the thicker side, I would use a little less water.  You could also add some ice cubes to the smoothie as well to have a thicker consistency.



In the end, you are left with a great energy boosting drink that has loads of fiber and vitamins.


Did I mention that my children would probably sell me to the highest bidder for one of these drinks?  They love it!

They have absolutely no idea that it is so good for them.

I promise that you can’t taste the spinach.  They always have to ask me if I put spinach in it.  😉



It’s a good thing that they can’t taste everything in the smoothies.  It would just be too awkward to explain things after the neighbor’s cat went missing…….

Mooooohaahaahaahaahaa!  (*Evil Laugh)


Yeah, Z didn’t get it either.  Guess I’ll have to work on my jokes.
