Banana Coconut Bread

Okay, okay. I know, I have been MIA these past few days but this week has just been one of those weeks where I have had no desire to cook or bake. Last night my husband was searching the house for baked goods so I told him I would make something today. So right now as we speak I have a banana coconut bread in the oven. 

1/2 cup oil
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 mashed ripe bananas
2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup shredded coconut

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees

Baked Macaroni Casserole

Last night, I had no desire to think of something spectacular for my family and I also knew it was a day where I was NOT going to the grocery store so I had to cook with what I had in my refrigerator. The meal worked out perfectly and was delicious! I hope you enjoy this meal on a day where you just need some warmth and comfort and maybe you too would have these items in your fridge.

1 lb ground sausage
1 onion chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 garlic cloves
salt and pepper
2 cups beef broth
can of stewed tomatoes
3 Tbsp tomato paste
1 Tbsp fresh basil
small handful fresh parsley
1 lb macaroni noodles
3 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp fresh nutmeg
freshly grated Parmesan Cheese

Steak Salad Bowl

This dish I came up with about a year ago and it has been a favourite ever since.  I think I could eat it once a week and never get sick of it! You can do so many different varieties of vegetables and change it up constantly. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Ingredients: (for 2 bowls)
Cut of your favourite grilling steak
1 cup of quinoa or couscous (measured before cooking)
1/2 cup mayonnaise
3 Tbsp juice from a lemon, separated 
1/4 cup cilantro, plus more
1 garlic, minced
mixed greens
veggies (Avocados, Peppers, Beets, Red onion, Tomato's...)
cooked Parmesan or feta cheese
