Cherry Almond Quick Bread

This quick bread is made with fresh pitted cherries and has a hint of almond throughout. A simple vanilla almond glaze is drizzled on top! www.lemonsforlulu.com

A quick bread made from fresh cherries with a hint of almond.  A simple almond glaze covers it all! I don't eat breakfast very often.  My family eats buckets of cereal on a daily basis.  They eat it for breakfast and right before bed.  I never was a big fan of cereal.  As a kid, I only ate it until I found the toy hidden inside then, like most kids, I'd leave the opened box in the panty to dry out and go stale.  Nothing grosses me out more … Continue reading →

This Meyer Lemon Poppy Seed Bread is made with the perfect blend of sugar and citrus! You won’t be able to stop at just one tender, lemony slice of this sweet bread! It’s a bit hard to admit this, but I’m not the kind of girl who actually spends time on herself.  I’m the kind of girl who showers, dries her hair, throws on a Life is Good tee-shirt, a pair of jeans and I’m good to go. I got my nails painted and now my life has changed. … Continue reading →

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread with Chocolate Orange Glaze

Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread with Chocolate Orange Glaze

My favorite quick bread is chocolate zucchini bread! Use your fresh from the garden zucchini to make the moistest bread you've ever tasted! Freshly squeezed orange juice is added to the chocolate icing for a surprise burst of flavor! I do not have a green thumb.  Which is strange, because I come from a very green family.  My mom can literally stick a branch in the ground and a few weeks later, its sprouting flower buds.  My sisters … Continue reading →

Maple Cinnamon Banana Bread

The new year is here.  I can't believe it.  December flew past me.  It seems one minute I was throwing together Halloween costumes and the next minute I was toasting in the new year!  How does this happen?  I was so busy baking, prepping, planning, wrapping and posing Iggy our Elf on the shelf, that I didn't have time to stop and just enjoy the season. I know my family and most of my friends have already taken down their Christmas decorations. … Continue reading →

Bacon Cheddar Beer Bread

Bacon Cheddar Beer Bread

This post is a little early.  Tomorrow is moving day for us.   They say the top three stressors in life are death, divorce and moving.  I cannot speak on the first two, but I can attest to the third!  Holy crap, this month has been an emotional roller coaster. After packing my 1 millionth box (only a slight exaggeration), I had a breakdown.  I locked myself in my closet and cried.  I cried because of all the memories this house holds.  It's … Continue reading →

Lemon Monkey Bread

Lemon Monkey Bread

Have you ever been so tired you are too tired to sleep?  I am just coming off of one of those weeks.  I think I'm fairly recovered now.  The only thing that remains from my exhaustion is a very sore back. The reason for all this is that my husband and I have decided it's time to move.  We've lived in this house for 10 years.  Let me tell you, there is a lot to clean up after 10 years, 3 kids and a dog!!!  Honestly, I cleaned things I hadn't … Continue reading →
