Okay guys, it’s the first day back in real life for us. The kids have to go to school. I have to pretend like I’m cleaning the house all day and not watching CNN while I lay in bed. The usual.

My kids actually just got back from their dad’s house on Sunday night – they were gone for, like, 10 or 11 days. I didn’t go to the grocery store a single time they were gone. Our fridge is bare. Like, totally bare.

There’s literally just leftover pho, half a carton of cashew milk, and 2 limes.

And if you know me at all you know there’s not a chance in heck that I’m going to the grocery store with all 3 boys.

No. Nope. Not happening ever.

So I made a loaf of bread for sandwiches, cookies for lunchboxes, and these Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins for breakfast.

Cranberry Pecan Muffins

Heeeey guys! I made us muffins for breakfast!

Are you a cranberry person? I feel like I became a cranberry person this year. Almost every post I’ve put up in the last month has had cranberries in it. And I’ve never cared about cranberries before. I still have a few bags in the freezer though so expect a couple more posts.

And then when I run out of those, we’ll move onto dried cranberries and cranberry juice!

No?

Two pumpkin recipes this week!

Is it too much pumpkin?

I still have many cans of pumpkin in my pantry so. Prepare yourselves.

Anyway, let’s talk about making mornings easier today.

Because I get my kids out of bed at 6:15 and we’re (trying very hard to be) out the door at 6:55.

Three kids.

That’s 6 shoes that inexplicitly go missing in the middle of the night. Every single night. How does this happen? Why is one shoe outside if the other is under the bed?

I. Don’t. Understand. It.

Tell me I’m not alone. Tell me you have also found yourself sneaking into the neighbor’s garage at 7 am because your kid swears he left his shoes there.

Happy Monday!

I know, a healthy recipe from me.

It’s been awhile since we had one of these, huh?

My life’s been kind of a mess (I swear I’ll explain it all when I can) and I’ve been avoiding being an actual adult by doing things like driving to Waco for tacos or driving to Austin for doughnuts. It’s been fun but it’s time to get back to eating healthy.

I mean seriously, bikini season. It’s right around the corner.

I already bought my doughnut-shaped pool float.

So in an effort to make eating healthy as easy as possible, I spent a good portion of the weekend prepping for the week.

We’ll see how it goes.

But I’m really excited to have these Paleo Blackberry Muffins for quick, easy breakfasts. You know I love a coconut flour muffin so of course I’m obsessed with these. They are lightly sweetened with honey and then loaded with fresh blackberries.

Because I can’t get enough fresh berries right now!

If you’re not into the blackberries, try raspberries or blueberries!

Make a batch of these and you won’t have to worry about breakfasts for the entire week!

My husband came home with a box of bananas the other day.

I don’t know why or how he ended up with a box of bananas. I don’t even ask anymore.

But I love when we have a ton of bananas because that’s the only time I can make banana bread. You ever lived with 4 guys? Food goes fast. Bananas disappear well before they’re ripe enough to use for baking.

So yesterday I made these Sour Cream Banana Nut Muffins and a loaf of paleo banana bread for the husband. Which he then covered in very much non-paleo cinnamon raisin peanut butter. But whatever.

I made these muffins while the kids were at school and most of them were gone by the time they went to bed.

They’re really yummy and really easy! The sour cream keeps them moist and the nuts (I used hazelnuts because I’m obsessed but you can use walnuts or pecans!) give them a nice crunch.

I highly recommend making them if your husband ever comes home with a giant box of bananas. Or, you know, you just have a couple super ripe bananas hanging out on your counter.
