Banana bread is an awesome way to use up those leftover bananas that have been hanging in the fruit basket for a few days too long. If you're like me, you tend to stick with the traditional banana bread or banana muffins (which are actually my personal favorite), but sometimes we just need to change it up. Here, you can transform your usual banana bread into a beautiful bundt cake. If you want to really dress it up, drizzle a sweet brown sugar icing on top of it...now you have something that you can proudly show off in your cake dish.
Fresh, made-from-scratch jam beats store bought any day. I actually don't even buy jam or jelly anymore. Everyone in the home just loves this stuff, and I'm not just saying this because I want likes on my blog. It is by far my favorite jam. This may sound crazy, but it's also the first type of jam or jelly that my son will eat (we have a long history of pickiness and food anxiety with him). But best of all--this stuff only requires 3 ingredients and minimal effort, and trust me when I say that the amount of effort you put in is absolutely worth the results!
These biscuits were so soft, fluffy, and crumbly--like biscuit heaven. Making biscuits from scratch does involve a little more work than popping a can open and baking, but the process really is not bad at all. And seriously--can it get much better than a made-from-scratch biscuit? Not really. If you're a southern mama, you better have a good biscuit recipe! 😂
Okay, so I discovered a little trick that I love doing to save time, especially on busy mornings (not to mention, it also helps your cabinets look pretty and organized) --preparing jarred mixes ahead of time. It is so easy to do, and like all things in the organizing world, you spend a little extra… Continue reading Prepare Jars of Mix Ahead of Time
Once I realized how easy it was to make syrup, I never bought it from a store again. Really, it is so easy to just whip up while you are waiting for your pancakes to cook, and you are left with many more servings of it afterwards. So be sure to have a syrup bottle, to store extra syrup. It's a simple 2:1 ratio of sugar and water, so make as much or as little as you'd like. I have a feeling that you will be wanting to replace your usual syrup with this one from here on out.
It doesn't quite feel like a complete family to me without a go-to pancake family recipe that everyone looks forward to on special Saturday mornings. I like to imagine that one day, my babies will be coming back home to visit us as adults and they will still be requesting pancakes for breakfast. These are perfect pancakes...seriously.
