Recipe Review - Banana Nut Bread

Mmmmmm.....warm Bannana Nut Bread!  Is there anything better?
Well, for me it would be to take the nuts out!

Yes, I like my Banana Nut Bread, nut free!

A few weeks ago I ran across this recipe, from Nags over at Edible Garden, on Pinterest.  It was love at first site!  Instead of the traditional pecans, she used macadamia nuts!  HELLO!  She also used hazelnuts but I forgot about those once I saw macadamia nuts.  Since I had a few overly ripe bananas just lying around I decided to whip this up.
You will need:
Eggs
Vanilla
1 Banana (yes, just one!)
Butter
Flour
Sugar
That's it!  Oh, and nuts for those of you that prefer nuts in your Banana Nut Bread.  Super simple!
I started by mashing my banana and setting it aside.
Then you will cream your sugar and butter together
Add your eggs and incorporate well
Once your eggs have been incorporate turn your mixer to low/stir and add your bananas and vanilla
Mix well then add your flour, still on the lowest possible setting
You can also fold your flour in rather than mixing (this is what Nags says to do)
Lightly spray your baking dish (I used a loaf pan liner and lightly sprayed it), fill with batter and bake
Allow to cool.

My husband, who HATES banana's BTW, LOVED the bread.  It is VERY good and I will be making this again soon.

Make sure to head over to Edible Garden for the complete recipe.  Also, Nags is an AMAZING food photographer....you have been warned!  You WILL drool over her pictures.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
