Breakfast on a Budget – Cream of Corn Cereal

Baby Banana Topping

Last week when I was cruising the aisles of Whole Foods I found a treasure in a pile of bananas. Hidden beneath the plain Jane normal bananas was a whole hand of baby bananas! I haven’t found a good picture, but each baby banana is about as long as an adult finger. There are 15 […]

Do You Know the Muffin Man?

Gluten Free Banana Muffins

Monday morning I was attempting to clear a path through the dirty dishes when I came upon an extremely ripe banana.
