These muffins are quite healthy because they contain loads of fiber, low sugar, and bananas. You can actually omit the oil from the recipe altogether if you add an extra banana for moisture. When using bananas in baking, you want to make sure that they're extra ripe/brown because that's what gives them that sweet flavor.
After whipping up the batter, you can mix chocolate chips, walnuts, or pecans into the batter. You can use any of those ingredients to top the muffins as well, I chose to top these with quick oats.
These muffins are great when they're fresh and warm out of the oven, but they can be stored for up to one week (think of breakfast on the go).

This recipe came from Average Betty.
I know it's a bit early but it's been feeling like spring here for a while now. This recipe isn't ice-cream or sorbet so you can make it without an ice-cream maker- all you need to do is freeze this in a tray and then scrape it with a fork before scooping some out to eat. You can make different flavors by using the pulp of any other fruit that you like. This recipe is super simple, fresh, and it’s delicious!
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup warm water
3 cups sliced strawberries
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
This recipe turns out a super moist-on-the-inside, and crispy skinned roast chicken. The trick to get the flavor into the chicken is to marinate it for a long period of time. Covering the chicken while baking it for the first hour helps lock the moisture in because the chicken cooks in its own steam and then uncovering to cook it an additional 15 minutes at the end crisps the skin up.
Lemon- Rosemary, Thyme Roast Chicken
2 lemons, quartered
1 onion thickly sliced
6 cloves garlic, crushed
2 sprigs rosemary
4 sprigs of thyme
black pepper, as needed
salt, as needed
2 tbsp olive oil
There's a girl at work who makes and brings lots off cookies- and she's kind enough to share the recipes. This is another recipe from Joanne Fluke's Lake Eden Cookbook.

I love to eat! I've been baking since before I was a teenager and exploring more with cooking for the past decade. This section of the site is dedicated to my experiments in the kitchen.
