I love using fresh fruit in my desserts. This recipe has been one that I have been working on for a while. The versatility of this recipe is great for seasonal baking, just use whatever berries or jams you have handy. My favorite is a simple Strawberry because I always have these ingredients in my fridge. Baby Boy LOVES strawberry so it is in high demand always.

These initially started out as a healthy breakfast muffin but then I found Civilized Caveman’s amazing Maple Vanilla Frosting and knew it would turn these Carrot Cakes into awesome cupcakes. Super hubby has always hated on my love of carrot cake… guess who devoured 3 […]

Love is knowing someone has your back, knowing someone will be there to take care of you, knowing someone will support you through your ups and downs. We don’t need Valentine’s Day to feel loved but it doesn’t hurt! Brandon and I don’t go out […]

Beautiful Blueberry Bread

Beautiful Blueberry Bread

Traveling can be tricky when you are trying to make a good lifestyle change. The best way to stay on track is to bring some of your go to items home. If someone has dessert- make sure you have your own sweet to snack on. It is all about planning ahead and keeping your ultimate goal in mind. *Your goal to be a healthier you!* My last tip- Always pack your workout gear and find new places to take a hike, run or bike if possible.
Tomorrow we head to Maryland to go to visit our family! I made Paleo Crunch, Apple Bran Muffins, packed fruits and veggies and ingredients to make Zucchini Lasagna (per my families request). I also worked on a bread. Normally I make a Blueberry buckle that is to die for (sooo not healthy). This was my attempt to make a healthier alternative to that treat. Hopefully my family will approve.

  • 3 eggs

  1. Preheat the oven to 350
