Whole Wheat Banana Flax Bread

WAIT – don’t judge this as bland tasteless bread just from the name. This bread is packed with delicious flavor and nutrition to stick with you all morning. Bake a loaf on Sunday, slice it, store it in the fridge, and toast a slice each morning. Top it with peanut butter, and you’ve really got…

Lemon Verbena Shortbread

In an effort to use up my herbs before the frost hits and the season is over, I wanted a lemon verbena alternative to pound cake. While these shortbread cookies are about as close to pound cake as you can get – tons of butter – they are a nice shareable and snackable alternative. Not…

Green Chile & Cheddar Cornbread

Having never made cornbread before, I threw caution to the wind and created this gorgeous bread. I know I’ve read about something like it before, but I couldn’t find it. And we had a huge pot of chili on the stove . . . it’s Packer Sunday after all. So give this bread a try…

Morning Glory Muffins

As weekdays mornings are getting earlier and busier, we’re searching for healthy, high protien, and high fiber breakfast foods to take on the go. I love to grab a Greek yogurt when I can, but most mornings I don’t even have time for that. Enter these muffins benefiting from protien from the pecans, fiber and…

Lemon Verbena Pound Cake

Every year I plant an herb garden in several pots at our house. There’s always basil, thyme, sage, chives and tarragon. But this year I decided to plant lemon verbena because it reminds me of staying at my Aunt Chris and Uncle Mark’s organic farm in the summer. Aunt Chis always had huge lemon verbena…

For one reason or another, I have an aversion to the taste of raw flour in my desserts, which has lead me to avoid almost all fruit desserts. The most common thickener for the juice released during the cooking process of fruit pies and fruit crisps is some flour mixed in with the fruit, and I…

Banana Crumb Muffins

These muffins are sure to be a new favorite breakfast treat on the weekends – full of banana flavor, ultra moist, yet satisfyingly dense. This may even become the best banana bread recipe that you’re ever tried. What’s more, these are the perfect morning snack to travel with. I made these the night before a…

Millet Granola

I’ve always wanted to make my own granola, and for some reason it alluded me. You can find plenty of store-bought brands that are pretty good, but when I look at the ingredients I usually shudder at the fats used in the process. Certainly nuts are high in fat – good, delicious fat – and…

Monkey Bread

My Mom made money bread when I was in high school on Sunday mornings. My sister and I had never heard of it until one evening when we were making dinner. My Dad started to go on and on about “monkey bread” and how Mom used to make it all the time when they started…

Experimenting with Quiche

Monday night turned into a much longer experiment than I thought. While at work, during lunch, of course, I had a brilliant idea: “Make a quiche for dinner! It is inexpensive (a huge consideration at this point in my life) and I have the ingredients in the fridge. I would use milk, so it was lower…
