This blog was started in 2008 when we did IVF for the first time to build our family after 5 1/2 years of infertility. We now have 8 and 2 year old boys (thanks to modern medicine) and we are enjoying our blessed life as parents ♥ In the summer of 2016 we took another huge step and moved across the country from Oklahoma to New York! This blog is about life and everything in between

2 New Recipes!

I have recently tried out two new recipes that were a big hit! The first is vegan (which I am not) and a healthier version of banana bread! Here is the link to the original recipe. I did mod mine a little so I put those changes as optional!

Banana Apple Bread

2 ripe bananas
1 apple, peeled and diced
2/3 c sugar
1 3/4 c flour
1/2 c applesauce (can use plain or flavored)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/3 c shredded coconut flakes (optional)
1/4 c ground flaxseed (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mash bananas with fork in mixing bowl, add remaining ingredients. Mix well and pour into greased loaf pan. Bake 60-70 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

You read that correctly! No oil, no water, no eggs....how does it work? I don't know but it's delicious and I will definitely be making it again. I just made it yesterday and we are already down to the last sliver....

My next recipe is much more relaxed in a thrown together kind of way. Somehow I have never made chicken salad until now! It turned out yum and I can't wait to eat the leftovers. I got the idea from my mom and added on to it. *****WARNING***** chicken salad is very forgiving so I didn't actually "measure" anything. For the sake of a recipe I will give estimates of amounts I used.

Curry Chicken Salad

1 c diced cooked chicken
1 c mayo
2 large celery stalks diced
2 apples diced
1/3 c raisins
2 tbs minced onion
1 tsp salt
1 tbs curry
1 tsp paprika

Mix all together and store in the fridge. Serve on sandwiches or with crackers. Makes a lot!

That is all for now! I hope you enjoyed the recipes, and please comment and let me know how they turn out if you try them! We have been busy in the Pierce house but I will blog about all that later. Tomorrow is my BIRTHDAY and I am excited!
