Whole Wheat Blueberry Scones. Black Raspberry Oat Scones. You may or may not know this, but I’ve had a food blog for five years. While I can’t remember what my first blog looked liked or really what motivated me to start blogging, I clicked publish on a recipe for the first time five years ago tomorrow. If you look back in my archives, you might be a bit confused because the first post is actually from 2009 but in reality, I have post that are sitting in draft status from 2007. For one reason or another I didn’t feel them up to par with this space but I keep them there as a reminder.

I often kick myself for not sticking with it fully but I think it took this amount of time to develop myself and my taste. I was what one would call a half-ass blogger for the first 3-4 years. A Braided Strawberry Rhubarb Cheese Danish. This week blows...

Actually I take that back... the past 2 weeks have blown. My husband worked 65 hrs week 1... then this week... he has worked 80 hrs. Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. {Pin This} It seems like all to often I am looking for a way to use up a brown banana that got left on the counter uneaten.

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

Since I really try to avoid food waste I will typically make Banana Bread, throw the banana in a smoothie or throw the banana in the freezer to have in a smoothie later. Ever since my friend Stephanie introduced me to the this Banana Muffin recipe these are the only thing I want to make with old bananas. In fact sometimes I secretly hope a banana will go brown so that I can make these. I am not a huge fan of banana bread, but I am a huge fan of banana chocolate chip muffins! Vegan Double Chocolate Coconut Banana Bread. Everyone has bananas that are just past eating at some point right?

I think I say that every time I post some kind of banana bread, but it’s true. We eat a ton of bananas in our house, quite literally. At the store I always think I better get one extra bunch to throw in the freezer at the end of the week for smoothies and somehow we still only end up with one or two extra. I don’t know how it happens. It might be the two monkeys we have for kids, haha. A Sneak Peek at Janice’s Trip to California for Driscoll’s University and a Recipe for Blueberry Banana Oat Bread. Last week I jetted off to Watsonville, California for Driscoll’s University.

A Sneak Peek at Janice’s Trip to California for Driscoll’s University and a Recipe for Blueberry Banana Oat Bread

If you haven’t heard of the University, let me explain: Every few months, Driscoll’s —producers of strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries — invites small groups of customers, chefs, dietitians, and farmers to their ranch for a two-day experience where they get to see firsthand how the berries are grown. I was one of the lucky dietitians this May and learned a ton about berry nutrition, berry breeding and research, and berry harvesting. Funfetti Cinnamon Rolls. So my birthday was 2 weeks ago.

Blueberry Lemon Cornmeal Cake

There's more variety of fruit available at the markets this week. I’m patiently waiting just a bit to let the season unfold with more ripened specimens. But I’ve got blueberries on my table once again and they are really juicy and delicious. Lemon Blueberry Bread. With Mother’s Day coming up in a few days I wanted to share a recipe that would be perfect for your brunch table on Sunday.

Lemon Blueberry Bread

I found this recipe on Pinterest and like all things from that crazily-addicting website, it was all based on looks – specifically the evenly spaced blueberries and beautiful yellow color in the photo. Sweet Pea’s Kitchen did a fantastic job making this bread look amazing, so I pinned it, printed the recipe, and pulled it out of my oven not too long after. Turns out Pinterest is good for a lot more than just wasting time – this bread was delicious! Okay, maybe it’s more “cake” than bread, but with all the lemon and blueberries, you could probably convince yourself that it’s an appropriate dish to eat before noon, especially in celebration of Mom! Sometimes I get nervous baking loaves because they can get dried out easily, but this recipe yielded an insanely moist cake with great lemon flavor thanks to the lemon syrup bath after the cake is baked. Oh, ladycakes: Raw banana nut bread. I’ve been making a lot of raw food lately.

Partly because it’s easier on my digestive system, but mostly because my oven has decided to heat up to 500˚F any time it’s switched to BAKE. Which poses a problem when you’re a baker. And when you live on the top floor of a brick warehouse, with 20 foot ceilings. This place gets so hot I could probably instruct a bikram class in here.
