Chicken Tamale Casserole

I love Mexican food and this is one of my favorite, mid week, family friendly, lighter recipes. Just toss it all together, throw it in the oven and you are ready to eat. And it is even better the second and even third day.

Healthy Banana Bread

Banana bread

My kids and hubby are crazy picky! None of them are breakfast eaters but as they’ve aged and matured have realized that they need something in the morning. Mostly breakfast entails cold cereal if they’ve left enough time (they are teenagers after all) or a quick grab and go protein shake. I’ve learned that one way to make sure they eat more is to have things on hand that they can grab and go. You will almost always find a fresh baked from scratch item on my counter for my picky eaters. This way I know what is going into their bodies, can sneak in what I want and they will always eat something. This banana bread is moist, healthy and down right yummy!
