Hello, and happy Saturday!

I hope you all had a fabulous holiday week and maybe enjoyed some extra days of rest and relaxation. What do you have on tap for this weekend? Dominic and I are back home after a week of treatment in the hospital, so catching up on things around the house and some much-needed relaxation are my plans!

Grandma’s Banana Nut Bread – Straight from my grandma’s kitchen, this banana nut bread recipe is a tried and true family favorite. This quick bread takes 10 minutes to prep, is loaded with mashed bananas and chopped walnuts, and bakes up super moist and dense.

What I Bookmarked This Week

This double berry mascarpone cobbler sounds unbelievable.

I love quick, flavorful meals, and this beef chow mein with ground beef looks PERFECT!

Thinking of making this cashew crunch salad with sesame dressing for lunches (may sub almonds or pecans for the cashews because of Joseph’s allergy, in case he’d like to have some!).

I have no plans to be on a boat anytime soon, but I would LOVE a big bowl of this boat dip!

I’m veryyyyy intrigued by these cheesy pinto beans; that bowl looks so cozy.

Have a delicious weekend!
