Breakfast

Blueberry Compote

Easy Blueberry Compote

Do you know how to pronounce the word, "Compote?" Well...I didn't for the longest time. Like until just 5 minutes ago. Sigh. I knew how to cook a compote and what it was and that I liked [...]

Breakfast

Banana Protein Shake

Banana Protein Shake

Yay! It's time for another protein shake recipe! This banana protein shake makes it into our breakfast rotation probably every other day. It's super delicious, and is full of banana protein-y goodness. As I've mentioned [...]

Chicken Fried Steak

Breakfast

Banana Nut Muffins

During the week, I am a happy camper to have my usual bowl of cereal with whatever fruit is on hand (usually bananas, strawberries or blueberries) along with my large cup of coffee for breakfast.  I probably could eat that every morning.  Dustin, on the other hand, has a self-imposed expiration date for how long [...]
