6 Ripe Bananas Means Only One Thing…

Banana Bread!

Growing up, one of my favorite treats my mom would make for us was this ooey gooey delicious banana bread. Seriously, it was SO good… the loaf was always gone by the next day.

I used to make banana bread in college with my roommate, Jen. Whenever we had ripe bananas laying around we’d make a loaf or two and give them to friends (keeping a little for ourselves, of course).

Irish Tradition

St. Patty’s Day is known to many as the notorious day of drinking excessive amounts of green beer and whiskey, staying up all night mumbling along to Irish songs you would NEVER listen to on any other day of the year (songs you don’t know any of the words to…yet you still insist on yelling along until the bars throw you out). You somehow make it home just in time to take a quick nap (if you’re lucky), hop in the shower and head off to work… Don’t get me wrong, that all sounds like a blast. Really! But I have to admit… That’s just not me.

What did I do on St. Patty’s Day, you ask? I did what my mom has done for my sister and I every St. Patricks day since I can remember: made green shamrock pancakes and green scrambled eggs, served it up with green-dyed milk and made a treasure hunt that led to a pile of gold coins (chocolate of course!).

BEST Do-It-Yourself Gluten Free Pizza

I don’t know about you, but I love my occasional pizza-fix. Especially when I feel a lazy movie night coming on.

When I’m really craving pizza, I like to make my own. It’s so much better fresh and hot out of the oven. I have yet to try making my own gluten free dough/crust (that will be for another time), but for now… I stick with my go-to gluten free pizza crust by Udi’s. They are the best. Seriously, try em. You can find Udi’s Gluten Free Pizza Crust at most grocery store, but you’ll be sure to find them at Whole Foods, or any health foods store.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Udi’s Gluten Free Pizza Crust
  • 1 cup Pizza Sauce
  • Any toppings of your choice

Here’s a picture of one of my pizza creations – Crust, Sauce, Goat Cheese

It’s so easy to pull a crust out of the freezer, slab on some yummy tomato sauce, and sprinkle on a little goat cheese (or any toppings of your choice), throw it (okay, gently slide it, let’s be real) in the oven on 375 degrees for about 10 minutes and you’ve got a very yummy pizza for two  – or one if you’re really hungry! ;)

Enjoy!
