Breakfast (OMG DELICIOUS), Lunch & Dinner - May 7, 2021


Happy Friday!

Here is your weekly dose of Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner. Your weekly post of the fun, entertaining and inquisitive things we have going on.



Chocolate Banana Bread – it’s the BEST

You know when you have bananas that don’t look inviting anymore, but they’re not BAD so you don’t want to throw them away? I certainly have and that’s when I do one of two things:

  1. Peel and freeze the bananas for a later use
  2. Make Chocolate Banana Bread

I’ve tried several different recipes and this chocolate banana bread recipe by two peas & their pod is BY FAR my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!

Give it a try and tell me what you think!



Spring Goddess Sandwich – on an EVERYTHING BAGEL

I’m such a sucker for a delicious Everything Bagel, they’re just so delicious! Wouldn’t you agree?

We’ve featured Sylvia’s recipes before, she does such a great job with all her recipes and this Spring Goddess Sandwich is no exception.

Feel free to change it up a bit and use arugula instead of sprouts, tuna salad instead of chickpea salad and regular mayo instead of the vegan version if you’d like.

Make it your own and enjoy!



Traeger Chicken – Super EASY and So Delicious!

One of our favorite tools at home are your two Traeger Grills. Yes you read that right, two!

We have a smaller one for everyday use, and the big boy for when we have 3 pizzas that need grilling; or pre COVID when we had 30+ people over and lots of side dishes cooking all at once.

One of the easiest recipes we love to make on our Traeger is Grilled Chicken.

Seriously it’s never been so easy, the hardest part is to RESIST opening the grill lid and peaking in on the chicken cooking.

The Smoked Chicken with Apricot BBQ Glaze can also be made with only one whole chicken instead of two.

It’s so delicious! You can also use other jams you have on hand.


Thanks again for joining us on this fun journey. Please give us feedback on Instagram. Which item was your favorite? What info do you want more or less of? Do you have suggestions? Please let us know by hitting reply!
