Banana Cake Perfection


Fantastic Banana Cake, delicious. Another recipe added to my Pinterest Board.

Also I need to mention I did not use the cream cheese frosting recipe, I used another recipe that I’m a fan of.


French Toast & Marsala

2 new recipes to add to our home cookbook and as always added to my Voila Pinterest board where I put everything I’ve tried.


Overnight French Toast – Personally I didn’t add any of the stuff that you are supposed to sprinkle on top, I didn’t think it needed more sugar when we were going to put syrup on it anyway. I also used challah bread, which is a very eggy bread and perfect for french toast. It was beyond delicious.


Chicken Marsala – Didn’t look the way I expected as the color was really light and it was a bit watery but it tasted good so I’d recommend it. next time we might try using actual Marsala wine instead of dry white wine.

Chicken, Mushrooms, Tomatoes and Pasta

I have 2 new recipes to share:

Grilled Mushrooms

This was delicious and I think pretty easy.

Parmesan Chicken

I loved this recipe, very simple and delicious.

Fresh Tomato Pasta Sauce

I think this had potential but as you can see my husband blended the sauce when he probably should have just chopped and mixed it. It tasted good but it was weird being so saucy but uncooked, if that makes sense. We’ll try this again for sure.

As always, I got all of these from Pinterest where I have a board just for stuff I’ve tried (good and bad) titled Voila!

Pasta Salad & Mosquitoes

A few more things we’ve tried out from Pinterest.


Fresh Summer Tomato Pasta with Lemon and Garlic – the original recipes also has capers but I don’t like capers however my husband does. So he just added capers to his bowl an I felt it tasted just fine without it. It’s basically a pasta salad but a little zestier. This one is definitely going in our recipe book.

My husband also tried the DIY Mosquito Trap, twice, an neither time did it work.

As usual you can find all the trials and tribulations at my Pinterest board Voila!

My Kryptonite


It’s time for me to cut these out and get them out of my system. Not only do I love these 2 items more than most things in this world but they make me feel extra shitty. I’m officially cutting them both out (including anything from Dunkin Donuts) for 30 days. To clarify, I never eat sugar cereal, I’m more of a Cheerios or Chex kind of girl.

Anything you want to cut for 30 days?
