Banana muffins with butterscotch chips

Posted by on Jun 6, 2015 in Snack Bar | 0 comments

My husband went crazy for these – so so good! Next time I will definitely double. This recipe is so quick and simple. Start with your oven preheated to 400 for the first 5 mins than reduce to 350 for the remaining 15 – (20 mins baking in total). I find this method works best for me and my oven, but I played around with temps and times many times before using this as my base. 3 large ripe bananas, mashed 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup white sugar (could use all white if preferred) 1 egg 1⁄3 cup melted...

Caramal Pear Butter

Wow – you know what this would be good on, everything – these are the exact words my husband spoke after trying this concoction. It all started when our next door neighbor left a large bag of pears (straight from her backyard) on our front step. We ate a few, but there were so many and fruit flies were gathering fast so I put the entire bag in the fridge. When the space was needed, I decided to make sweet pear butter. I’ve made apple sauce many times and this is much the same process. I begin...

I was making a new, delicious main pork dish tonight (which turned out great!), so to save time, I picked up my go-to Sweet Kale salad from Costco. But then…. I was in the grocery store and thought, with all this fresh goodness, I can do better than my pre-packaged winter salad – so I did! Instead I got flavorful ingredients and filled my salad with fresh fruit, toasted pecans, and creamy cheese atop tender greens. baby spinach with tenders (tub of lettuce) fig goat cheese (from Loblaws) toasted...

Pork Tenderloin with Maple and Pear

This was an excellent dinner that I’ll surely be making again. The ingredients pair together nicely and the tender meat was thoroughly enjoyed by my toothless baby. My in-laws were here for dinner and while they are not picky, I do like to fancy-it-up. The prep was easy with chunky veg and fruit and everything can be started and finished in the same pan. I served this dish with a summer salad and rice, but roasted potatoes would also be perfect! You’ll need: pork tenderloin, about 1 lb (I bought from...
