Gluten-free Banana Bread

This recipe is as easy as pie, or banana bread. This is my first gluten-free recipe. Give it a try.




Gluten-free Banana Bread

Ingredients:
  • 4 ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 eggs

Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix dry ingredients (flours, salt, baking soda, and walnuts) in a large bowl.
  3. In a medium bowl, smash bananas with a fork, then add oil and eggs. Mix until smooth.
  4. Pour dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until well incorporated.
  5. Use olive oil to grease a loaf pan.
  6. Pour batter into pan (9.25 x 5.25 x 2.75 inches) lined with parchment paper and brushed with olive oil.
  7. Bake for 50 minutes.

Slice into the loaf and drizzle a bit of honey on top before serving. Or, you can cover a slice with sweet fruit.

Enjoy!

Junk Drawer Organization

I just moved to a new city and state, and none of my storage space in my new apartment is like all my storage space in my old house. I downsized from 2,000 square feet to 900 square feet, so I am trying to cope.


















The junk drawer is always a hassle. It won't open well, it won't stay shut, or you can't find anything.
Dollar Tree to the rescue! I purchased plastic skinny storage containers and poster tack (putty) all at the dollar store. For less than $5, I have this now:

No labels needed. Each container had very little in it. One for pens, index cards (used for shopping lists), measuring tape, tape and stapler, mini flashlight and box cutter, and letter opener and hole punch.

Simply cut a dime-size chunk of poster tack. Place it on the bottom corners of your containers. And, place the container in its rightful spot. When you open the drawer, nothing moves or jingles. So nice!!

Let me know what you've done to tame your junk drawer.

Free Printable - Daily Journal

I journal everyday. I jot down a few sentences or bullet points that help me set the tone for my day, and then I reflect on my day. It creates self-awareness and motivation. It helps me understand what is really important to me.

I have been through a rough few months due to a job loss that, which was really a blessing to lose. I was bullied excessively by a manager for 11 months. It took a lot of strength for me not to quit and stay motivated. This journal is what helped!

Simple Mashed Potatoes

I take the opportunity to short cut recipes often, such as not pealing potatoes for a simple mashed potatoes recipe.

Simple Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients: 6 russet potatoes or any on hand1 tsp. minced garlic1/2 tsp. dried basil1/2 tsp. dried thyme1/4 c. milk1 tsp. butter or margarineSalt and pepper to taste Instructions:

1. Wash potatoes under running water, scrubbing well with a vegetable brush. 2. Chop potatoes into small pieces and place in pot. Run water over potatoes until covered well. 3. Bring to a boil on high heat, the lower to low heat for 20 minutes. 4. Drain water from potatoes and return to same pot. 5. In pot, mash all potatoes with a fork. 6. In pot, add all other ingredients. Mix well with a spoon. Serve right away.
No flavor is overwhelming. This is my go to recipe for mashed potatoes, mainly because it takes less than 30 minutes! They are so forgiving that you could add anything, even bacon bits, chives, onions, etc. Try some today.
