Now that I have two kiddos eating, I feel like I am making food ALL.DAY.LONG.
If you know me, you know I am all about eating at home but I also like keeping things very simple. It's hard to get into a groove with two kids so at least for now, super extensive recipes that require for hours in the kitchen are just not in the cards for my schedule. Luckily, there are a TON of options when it comes to making homemade meals that are simple and that come together quickly (hello, crockpot!).
That being said, I also tend to get stuck cooking the same things over and over again... I've been making it a point to try new recipes and to change things up a bit. They say variety is the spice of life, right?
One of my challengers posted a picture of her homemade apple banana muffins from Fixate. I saw the picture she posted and I immediately went to pull up the recipe - I was super happy to see that it was a simple recipe that I could try to tackle with Sienna. We do not have a muffin tin so we made a loaf instead, same recipe, we just cooked it for 10 minutes longer than the muffin recipe calls for.
Everyone loved it! We even made a second loaf to share with our neighbors. I feel like this loaf will be on repeat for a while!
Here's the recipe in case anyone wants to recreate it at home.
