I have been trying to perfect a recipe for a banana snack cake for a looooong time, but most attempts haven't panned out (see what I did there? 😂 ). But I'm not one to give up ... and I'm glad I didn't.
After a relaxing trip to Palm Springs last week (holy HOT weather! 💦 ), I came home jonesing for some cold soup. The kind that not only quenches your thirst, but also doubles as a meal when the temps are just too hot to cook...
So last week, I was on a roll with making energy bites ... this week, it's LEMON everything! I decided to fire up the crockpot one last time before it gets up to the 80s-90s here in San Diego, and I'm so glad I did.
Do you have a monkey in your household? 🙈 🙊 🙉 I do ... not literally, but I do live with someone who LOVES bananas and asks for banana-flavored snacks and treats a LOT 🍌 . You'd think I'm talking about a child ... but he's in his 40s 😂 .
Some days call for a B-R-O-W-N-I-E 🙈 . I'm not one to restrain myself from having something that I want, BUT I do make sure the ingredients are as high quality and nutrient-dense as possible. I think that's a good compromise - wouldn't you agree?
You know what is really hard to do? Naming my recipes 😂 . I look at every recipe and think, "ok, meat, vegetables, healthy fat ... seriously, they're all going to have the same name!" But I do my best. 😋
