Banana Nut Chocolate Chip Loaf

You all know how it is. You buy bananas to have for the family throughout the week but for whatever reason they aren’t gobbled up as quickly as you thought and suddenly they are brown and overripe. Time to toss them, right? Wrong!  You can throw together some wonderful and delicious foods with those overripe bananas. Peel them and freeze them to use in a smoothie in the coming weeks. Slice them and eat them with ice cream or mash them and mix them into your morning oatmeal, you can even make pancakes with them! Or follow the Hungry Household example and make banana nut bread with them (or muffins)! Continue Reading

Slice of Heaven Pizza

What is a more versatile meal than pizza? I’ll be honest, pizza is sort of my own personal version of heaven. You might as well know now, there will definitely be more pizza posts in the future.

It doesn’t stop there though, how about the toppings? The possibilities are endless!  Continue Reading

I started making my own tomato soup and I’ve loved it ever since. It is my favorite food on a chilly day. Continue Reading
