Happy Sunday! Today’s recipe is brought to you by a craving for blueberries and peaches and a need to make something I hadn’t made before. I put together the pie crust I made for Pumpkin Pasties and halved it and threw some spices together with some fruit, sugar, and flour. If you’re making a fruit galette, all you need is enough fruit to fill your galette, a thickener like flour or corn starch, maybe some water, sugar, and any spices if you so desire. Honestly, this was easier than I thought it was to make. And it’s a great dessert to share with friends over drinks or to cap off a summer night. I reckon it’d also be pretty great with a scoop of ice cream.

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I decided to revisit my grandmother’s Banana Bread recipe and play around with the flavors. I didn’t want to disrupt the structural integrity of the bread too much, so I started with adding the flavor components I wanted. What I got was a moist bread with a crisp crust. I ended up using 2 1/2 bananas, which I think contributed to the moisture in conjunction with the addition of the peanut butter and chocolate. If you want a stronger peanut butter flavor, I definitely recommend having 1 1/2 to 2 bananas, and potentially taking the butter content down to 1/3 to add in 1/4-1/3 cup of peanut butter.

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! I was perusing the ole family cookbooks again and found a recipe that came from a great aunt of mine. It’s one that was utilized by my family when we wanted to indulge in cinnamon rolls because it doesn’t take a whole host of ingredients and is pretty easy to make. Though the recipe I had didn’t have a set time to bake the rolls, I got you covered. Let’s roll.

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! Another Sunday morning classic I had growing up was blueberry muffins. Whether it was out of the packet or from scratch, having muffins for breakfast was a berry welcome treat. Blueberry muffins weren’t always a clear favorite for me. Don’t get me wrong, I always liked blueberry muffins but they weren’t always my favorite. Overtime my tastes changed and blueberry muffins became my number one muffin flavor. This probably has something to do with how great they were at Iowa State. This recipe was my attempt to achieve something like it, but with some edits.

Good Morning and Happy Sunday! This week I thought I would revisit a recipe that truly lives up to its name – Sassy Cinnamon Muffins. When I was younger, I always helped my mom bake and these muffins were a firm favorite. It was a recipe that my mom made in home ec and kept ever since. One day I wanted to make these muffins by myself. I gathered all the ingredients, leveled out my measurements and put those muffins in the oven. Much to my surprise, they did not rise to the occasion.

Good morning and Happy October! It has been a while since I tried to make muffins, so what better way than to use a fall staple. I first had apple cider at a fall festival in Wisconsin and it has been something I’ve loved ever since. It’s warm, has a bit of spice, and is not too sweet.

I know we are a good week into September, but snickerdoodles are pretty synonymous with Christmas to me. It’s a cookie Grandma Helen always made for that time of year, for which my dad and I were thankful.
