Lemon-Banana Bundt

Lemon-Banana Bundt

It’s Monday, and this week is off to a raging start.  Or, rather… the opposite of that.  It’s past noon and I still haven’t gotten one dang recipe up for you yet.  (Oh, here it is!)

I suppose this is what happens when you spend all day Sunday baking like a crazy person – three brand-new recipes and photos in one afternoon can leave you a little exhausted!  Plus, I’ve been running around teaching Zumba classes and going to local foodie events, which you know, I just can’t miss!

Chocolate Banana Waffles

Chocolate Banana Waffles

Living room dance parties. (90s pop, anyone?)

Getting into my pajamas before bedtime.

Kicking my Boot Camp class’s booty.

Baked things involving banana and chocolate.

Beet of My Heart Brownies

Hi, friends!  I shared a recipe with a fun blog yesterday, Mamaof3Munchkins.com, where Ty Watson does a whole variety of family-kids-fun-stuff posts.  Of course I wouldn't leave you out of the loop, so I’ll give you the sneak-preview (so you know to start drooling) and hand it over to Ty to deliver you the rest of the post and the goods.  Be sure to check it out – they were an absolute hit with brownie lovers all over!

I hope you like chocolate. 

Now, if you know me, you know I’m always looking for excuses to bake things.  Especially brownies.

I know what you must be thinking.  Yes, I do realize it’s not really necessary to have an excuse to bake… but, you know, having an excuse often means having someone to share said baked goodies with.  Right?

Like meeting a new neighbor.  Celebrating a birthday.  Having dinner guests.

If you’ve ever, at any time, read a healthy-eating guide of some sort, you’ve heard the phrase, “shop the perimeter of the grocery store, avoid the aisles!”  You know why that is?  Because the aisles are full of devious gnomes that steal your coupon books and put candy bars in your cart when you’re not looking.

Or maybe that’s not it.  It probably has more to do with the fact that processed foods fill the majority of the aisles.  After all, one of the best things you can do for your health is ditch the junk food and eat whole food, right?
