I should be _______.

I have guests coming for dinner tomorrow AND I still have to unpack from my trips this week. I should be cleaning. I should be doing laundry. I should be doings lots of things, but instead, today I did this:

The super yummy Apple Pie Muffins. Yuuummmmm!

And then I played on the computer to find more recipes, played with the munchkin, went to the store. Do you think if I serve my guests super yummy muffins they won’t notice the mess? Maybe??


Pineapple Banana Bread…with changes.

Rough day today for various reasons, but getting a nail in my tire would be part of it. See, while I have a popular car, apparently I am the only owner who is a klutz and needs to order new tires all the time, so they are never in stock. It’s really a pain in the butt, but at least the tire is coming tomorrow.

What to do tonight? Bake!  I had some crushed pineapple left over from making some sweet and sour sauce, so I went to and searched for pineapple. What I found was bread that I had all the ingredients for! Pineapple Banana Bread!

However, I did change it a lot. Instead of 1 1/4 c oil I used 1/2 applesauce and 3/4 c coconut oil (my first time using it!). And I added pecans…and a wee bit of coconut.The result? Eh. It was lacking a lot of flavor. Oh, I did also reduce the sugar slightly, so that might be why, but I think adding that sugar back in would have made it way too sweet, yet not the nice blend of flavors I was expecting. I think if I make these again, I’ll add more banana and more cinnamon. I will say though, I bet the munchkin will love these anyways, especially if he gets to eat them for breakfast!
