Before I delve too far into this recipe I need to tell you that this Strawberry Banana Bread tastes great with, or without, the nuts. If you’re not a fan of almonds (or nuts in general), you are by all means welcome to leave them out of this recipe entirely. I promise I won’t tell, and you’ll still enjoy the flavor of this deliciously easy bread.However, you’re a fan of nuts, then by all means…add them. The texture and crunch they provide are a nice contrast to this super moist bread.
I always have so much fun bringing you fun and whimsical food preparation ideas that are as simple to recreate as they are delicious to eat, and serve. Now, with the help of video presentation, bringing you the entire process (from start to finish) of the making and assembling of my Easter Bunny Pie I get to be even more interactive with you which makes it double the fun for me, and hopefully for you too!
The idea for these Gluten Free Maple Bacon Oatmeal Cookies came to me while I was walking down the breakfast aisle of the grocery store. At the time I needed to replenish my stock of quick cooking oats. As I grabbed the oats and tossed them into my cart I glanced the maple syrup that was across the aisle. Right then and there I had my light bulb moment!
I’ve been having such fun the past few months playing with pies and crusts that I just can’t seem to stop myself. Not that I actually want to, because they’ve seemed to have struck a chord with people, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I have several more ideas in mind for decorated pies and crusts, so I hope you’ll stay tuned. But first up is this one for Festive Coconut Banana Custard Pie with a Holly Berry Crust.
Our lives are so much busier during the holiday season. With cooking, baking, shopping, and entertaining, who’s got time to whip up a fancy pie?!?! YOU do! Since this beauty takes advantage of store-bought pie dough and takes virtually no painting or artistic ability (honest), anyone will be successful at making this Delightfully Colorful Autumn Leaves Crusted Apple Pie.
For everyone out there with a sweet tooth, this Old Fashioned Chocolate Caramel Turtle Fudge with Pecans that I’m sharing for #Choctoberfest has got your name written all over it. Well, not really, but I double dog dare you not to love everything about it!

I thought I’d kick off #PumpkinWeek2016 with a bang this year and share with you this Adorable Turkey Crust Pumpkin Pie. The key to assembling the turkey crust so he doesn’t drown in all that luscious pumpkin filling is to bake the pumpkin pie partially before adding Mr. Tom Turkey on top. That way the custard pie will be set enough so that the turkey crust will sit on top of the pie, and won’t be eaten up and fall to the bottom of the pie.
The recipe I’m sharing today for Chocolate Pecan Pies Bars is from fellow food blogger friend, Joan of Chocolate, Chocolate and More, who sadly died unexpectedly only a few short months ago. To say that the food blogging world was knocked off its axis into a world of shock and disbelief, is an understatement.
You guys, it’s apple season! Can you feel the slight chill in the air and the warm scent of cinnamon that is just about everywhere? Yeah, me either but I’m hopeful that it will happen soon. Even though it’s September, today in Illinois where I live the temperatures are supposed to be in the 90’s with a heat index in the 100’s. UGH! Oh well. Since there’s nothing I can do about the outside temperatures, I might as well make it feel like fall on the inside and cook up a batch of Slow Cooker Homestyle Apple Pear Sauce with Amaretto.
