I’m always on the lookout for recipes that call for over-ripe bananas and oats.  Somehow I seem to have an excess of both at all times!  These healthy chewy oatmeal bars from Sally’s Baking Addiction contain no flour, oil, or butter!  They are delicious and so satisfying.  The oats and peanut butter give these little … Continue reading

How is your week going?  Mine has been messy.  My son started eating solids, and while it’s been so fun watching him enjoy new tastes and textures, it’s doubled his baths and changes of clothes 😉  Our dog couldn’t be happier, though!  So far, my son has willingly ate anything I put in front of … Continue reading

I had a bit of a panic moment yesterday.  When I came home after running errands with the two kids, I realized that I did not return with everything that I left the house with.  No, I didn’t leave a child behind…just my laptop.  I am still hoping that it is at one of the … Continue reading

I have a confession…I used to eat quesadillas every morning for breakfast during medical school.  I would just put a piece of cheese in between two tortillas, toast it up in my toaster oven, and take it with me to class.  I’m still not quite sure why I kept doing it, as it didn’t have … Continue reading

Fall is upon us!  Well, not technically in Hawaii…but a girl can dream 🙂  That nip in the air, trees changing colors, apple picking, steaming pumpkin lattes!  I love fall. My mom gave me this Belgian waffle maker when we moved to Hawaii.  She’s been collecting gadgets while I’ve been gone, but never uses them. … Continue reading

We had such a fun weekend!  Saturday we went to an air show at the Kaneohe Marine Corp Base.  There were a lot of stunt pilots doing cool tricks, and huge military aircraft.  We were hoping to see the Blue Angels, but had to leave before they started flying.  Luckily, we were able to see … Continue reading

One of my sweet friends, Lisa, served us this delicious pumpkin bread when we were over at their house for a playdate.  I asked for the recipe, and was surprised to find out that it’s made out of 100% whole wheat flour!  It’s dense, but in a good satisfying way.  It also has some cornmeal … Continue reading

Homemade Greek Yogurt

Homemade Greek Yogurt

My lovely sister-in-law turned me on to this recipe for homemade greek yogurt.  She lives in Africa, and doesn’t readily have access to things like greek yogurt.  When she said that I should give this a try, I couldn’t wait.  This recipe comes from Annie’s Eats.  I love her blog, especially her DIY recipes.  There … Continue reading
