Baked Potato Soup {Foodie Friday}

If you are looking for something to warm you up, this is it. I never really had potato soup growing up, but DH's family makes it all sorts of ways. His mom makes it with some type of water base and noodles and his grandma makes it more like this. But everytime I made his grandma's recipe it turned out more like mashed potatos and soup. When I saw this recipe with potatos that were baked- not boiled, I knew this was the answer to my prayers. It was also a really big time saver, because I could make the potatos ahead of time and make the soup later. This is a big bonus for me, because usually when I get home it's almost 6 o'clock and getting dinner on the table fast is always a priority.This also saves really well.  I served the leftovers with a turkey panini that I toasted in our waffle iron. Delish.

Free Printable Kitchen Wall Art

For some reason, I seem to be more interested in Fall cleaning than Spring cleaning, and as such, it always seems like Fall is the time for me to change things up...and the same is true in my Kitchen. I think theses printables are just the thing to change it up a bit!

Banana Crumb Muffins {Foodie Friday}

I just love to bake. Cooking is not for me, but baking is awesome. These muffins did get soggy after a day or so, so make plans to eat them quick or take them to a carry in.
These Banana Crumb muffins were a great alternative to the normal banana bread I make with our expiring bananas. Caroline loved them. The other day she picked up the tupperware container of them and put them on the table. Then she crawled up onto a chair and onto the table and tried to get the container open. So there you go.
