I had about 5 pounds of Bartlett pears that were overripe so I had to decide between pear jam and pear nectar, we went for the nectar this time especially since my kids love nectar. Pears are so flavorful and the nectar saves all the fall aromas not to mention that my kitchen smelled great.
This is my go to recipe for Banana Bread, it’s quick , easy and the kids love it.
An easy dinner idea and you can serve it with rice, potatoes, spinach, vegetables, over a salad or turn it into a sandwich. This is a great recipe and we probably make it once or twice a month in our household. Also, if you prefer pork or beef feel free to use that instead of chicken.

My grandmother used to make this dish pretty often, especially during lent. As a child I was not too found of it but now I like it and, to my surprise, my kids also enjoy eating cabbage and noodles, especially my three year old daughter.
We always have bananas in our household, it’s a great snack and my kids love them until they start getting the brown spots and nobody wants to eat them after. This Blueberry Banana recipe is a quick and delicious way to use those overripe bananas. The blueberries will add a sour touch to the sweetness of the banana bread but if you don’t have any on hand you can substitute with walnuts / cranberry / raisins or just use plain bananas.
Still looking for the perfect side dish? Rice pilaf is the one and what a versatile food you can add any vegetables you have in the house, add cheese, walnuts, anything you have on hand and it’s great.
I love baguettes and french bread but they go stale so quickly. Here is a quick recipe to use basically with any stale bread. I usually prepare everything in the evening, let it soak in the fridge over night and bake it in the morning; My kids love this bread pudding with maple syrup in the morning.
