WIAW #41

Back to normal after Florida, and that means a fresh focus on cooking after the holidays and hustle and bustle that marked the start of 2016 for me.

Starting with breakfast, which included some homemade Grain Free Banana Bread Blondies, stuffed into the remainder of a jar of crunchy peanut butter and taken to work as a sweet treat to start the day. I ate an apple to follow all that peanut buttery banana goodness, and had some decaf coffee alongside.
