“Love means never having to say you’re sorry. However, it is with sincere regret that I must now kill all of you.”


Today I’m here to share with you, an amazing apple breakfast bread recipe!

I passed a loaf of this along to Mitchell’s parents, and gave some to my neighbor, I don’t know what the Smith’s thought, but our neighbors LOVED it.

It’s REALLY EASY and SUPER DELICIOUS. It makes a GREAT breakfast loaf. I think I’ll make this for Christmas. It’s great the day off but even better the day after, heated with butter. Yummmm.

What you’ll need:

1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 cup butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup granulated white sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
1/2 cup apple cider
2 1/4 cups chopped apples (Obviously cored, and peeled)

Pre-heat oven to 375 and grease your loaf pan. I managed 2 loafs out of this recipe, but it depends on the size of your pan.

Mix dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves) in a bowl. I suppose most people would tell you to sift, but I never do and it turns out fine 🙂

In a large bowl,  cream together butter and sugars. Beat in eggs. Add in flour mixture alternately with cider- I did mine in thirds. Mix until everything is combined, but don’t over mix.

Next gently toss in and stir the apples.

Pour batter into loaf pan(s) and place in oven. Bake until toothpick comes out clean. About 50 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool (about 20 minutes) then remove from pan, place on wire rack to finish cooling and either enjoy or wrap up for consumption the next day.  I’m warning you now, it is AMAZING. It wont last long!

2 pounds of small cucumbers + Creativity =….


This week the kids and I went to Newcastle Fruit and Produce and after stocking up on $11 (at 3.99 a lb) of Cherries a ton of delicious grapes and some corn on the cob, I wondered over to their discount bin. A bag of a bunch of small cucumbers for $1!!

I didn’t know what to do with the cucumbers, but I thought “hmm I wonder if I could make cucumber bread!”

Turns out its not so popular, but HOLY SMOKES it is DELICIOUS. OMG move over banana and zucchini bread, Cucumber is in town!

You will need:

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups finelychopped, or grated (I used a garlic press hahaha) cucumbers
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Beat your eggs in a bowl. Next beat in sugar then cucumbers, oil and vanilla. Blend together.

Now in a separate bowl mix together the remaining ingredients. Then add to cucumber  sugar mixture. Blend together thoroughly.

Bake in a greased bread pan (2) or cupcake tins (I did a loaf of bread AND muffins. ) At 350 Degrees for an hour.

Let cool and ENJOY.
