Roasted Banana + Berry Whole-Wheat Bread

DSC_0030

Happy Memorial Day weekend! First of all, I must apologize for my long, unannounced absence. I'm blessed that my spring schedule became packed with neat opportunities and fun events (teaching a new fitness class, helping with charity events, writing more freelance stories), and my poor little blog sat quiet as a result. But I'm back and have a delicious holiday recipe to share as a mea culpa! OK, that doesn't look ...continue reading

Whole-Wheat Banana Cornbread + The Secret to Perfectly-Baked Bread

Whole-Wheat Banana Cornbread

Earth Day is coming up in just two weeks, so I decided to take my Sunday to make the most of what I had in my kitchen, including spotted bananas. The result truly turned (almost) trash into treasure! I'll let you in on the big bread secret first, then get on with the recipe. Have you ever had a loaf of bread stick to your loaf pan stronger than Kimye sticks to the Hollywood spotlight? This is especially common in low-fat recipes, ...continue reading

A group of friends and I made the trek to a local pick-your-own farm, The Berry Patch, on Friday. It was a crisp fall afternoon—just right for apple harvest!

I love biting into a plain apple as much as the next girl, but jazzing them up every once in a while is ...continue reading

Whole-Wheat Peanut, Berry and Banana Bread

Bread

If given the choice, would you pack a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or peanut butter and banana sandwich? Why pick just one? My latest kitchen experiment, inspired by the ingenious Gina of SkinnyTaste, combines all of these flavors into one tasty bite. You don't even need two slices of bread for this one. But I wouldn't blame you one bit if you cut two pieces (or maybe three) for a twist on traditional dessert! Or how ...continue reading

Homemade Hearty Honey Wheat Bread

I’m not typically the type to make my own bread. With row upon row of options at the grocery store, it’s tough to talk myself into spending an afternoon in the kitchen when I can grab a loaf for less than $4. I was reminded of what I was missing during our family Christmas celebration, when my uncle brought a couple of his homemade loaves to enjoy alongside our soup. It was a delicious change of pace from the slices I find on the ...continue reading

Healthy Chain Reaction: Panera Bread’s Strawberry Poppyseed & Chicken Salad

All of the colors! My Mom and I were shopping the day of my sister’s wedding and needed to grab a quick lunch in the mall food court. Since both of us prefer more nutritious eats, we skipped the greasy Chinese and fried fast food joints and placed our orders at one of my favorites, Panera Bread, instead. The cafe scored bonus points for allowing us to escape the food court for a comfy booth in a less hectic atmosphere! Having heard ...continue reading
