Lemon Zucchini Bread

A little sweet bread with a twist… lemon zucchini bread. How is your garden growing?  My garden is doing alright, I have tomatoes, herbs, peppers, cucumbers, eggplant (first time-I love the little purple flower), and zucchini. I always plant zucchini, then I feel like my garden is a success because zucchini always grows well, really, […]

Kumquat Oatmeal Bread

We have had kumquats almost coming out of our ears, each week in our CSA box we have received a lunch bag full of kumquats (that equates to about 40 kumquats a week). I have been looking for numerous recipes to use the kumquats in because although they have been a favorite of my mom’s, […]

Fruit and Nut Bread

Another pineapple-guava recipe for you. Trying out pineapple-guava helps me to accomplish a little bit of one of my goals for my 55 before 55 bucket list (try a new fruit or vegetable once a month). This is a creative fruit and nut bread with a combination of whatever I found in my fridge. I […]

Pumpkin Oatmeal Muffins

These pumpkin oatmeal muffins are so moist, easy, and healthy. I made them as part of Craig and my dinner with a healthy salad and they were just the right pairing.  I have always enjoyed a good bread or muffin with soup or a salad and still feel like I am eating a substantial  and […]

Wheat and Oat Bread

Aimee asked a couple of weeks ago what your favorite bread was to make and one of her friends mentioned a honey wheat oat bread.  That enticed me and I decided to make a wheat oat bread, this one does not have honey but it does have the wheat and oats.

Pineapple-Guava Sweet Bread

We received pineapple-guavas in our CSA box about 3 times. The first time, it was 2 or 3 and we sliced them open, scooped out the  fruit, and ate it.  The 2nd and 3rd time we received about 6 to10 of them, so I decided I needed to discover something I could make with this […]

Almond Oatmeal Apple Scones

These almond oatmeal apple scones are divine.  I would make them day after day and eat every single one if I could. They are filled with amazing goodness of oats and apples flavored with cardamon, cinnamon, nutmeg, and almond extract.  I adore almond extract, the flavor is amazing and addicting.  I discovered this sweet recipe […]

Glazed Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

Mmm, sweet breads are one of my favorite desserts. Zucchini bread, cinnamon swirl bread, banana bread, etc, etc, etc. Because they are bread they feel a little bit healthier than eating a piece of cake, though odds are they aren’t healthier at all. This one even has a glaze/frosting which makes it pretty much the […]


Sweet Potato Cinnamon Swirl Bread

The sweet potato is a typical vegetable served during the fall and winter months.  Perhaps you even grew up with it traditional at your Thanksgiving table; even smothered in marshmallows, brown sugar, and butter.  That is probably the favorite presentation of sweet potatoes in the Garrett household my husband grew up in.

Pumpkin Cornbread

If you are going to serve chili you serve cornbread along side it; if you are going to serve cornbread you serve chili with it too.  That is how I grew up, these two were united, never one without the other.  The tradition carried on with my family, Craig would come home, smell the scent […]


Plum Bread

We have two plum trees, I believe I have mentioned this before.  They ripen at different times and have different flavors.  The Santa Rosa plum is a dark  purple and juiciest when bitten into, the Satsuma is closer to a red and hardier.  Both are good but for different reasons.


Copycat Texas Road House Rolls

Nate’s brother got married a week ago. The wedding was in southern/central utah so we had a little bit to drive to get there. But it was a beautiful ceremony. The bride and groom both looked absolutely amazing. After the wedding, lots of pictures and driving back to Orem the family wanted to go to […]


Corn Bread

Its really fun having a husband who enjoys cooking almost  as much as I do. Of course Nate usually does the “outdoor” cooking, you know grilling, anything over the camp fire and with our smoker.  We actually do a lot of cooking indoors together as well, depending on what we’re making, but pizza, pasta, tacos, […]

Mom writer here.  I know you haven’t seen much of me lately.  Perhaps I have been too busy, too distracted, too lazy or too uninspired. But today I have a wonderful muffin recipe for you.

Nutella Swirled Banana Bread

The 23rd of February was National Banana Bread day. Although I ended up not having time to make this scrumptious bread until the next day, I still wanted to honor the “holiday” and was pleased to find some frozen bananas in my freezer. For this recipe I started with my basic banana bread recipe, with […]
