Pintrest Recipe Roundup Week 2

Lately, I’ve been trying to find recipes that will finish up items we have had in the pantry or freezer for waaayyy to long. In addition, I always seem to have bananas on the brink of spoiling, and you can only have so many containers of frozen banana for smoothies before it starts to get ridiculous. Damir keeps buying bananas, and I’ve concluded that his ultimate goal is for me to make banana bread, which it turns out he loves. In this week’s roundup, there are TWO banana recipes, both are absolutely fantastic.

Pintrest Recipe Roundup Week 2

Unbelievably Moist Banana Bread

Banana bread

This is a rockstar recipe from Forks n’ Flip Flops that has forever changed my banana bread game. And for her tip of letting the batter rest… it DOES make a difference! I split the recipe in half and baked one half right away, the other as instructed. The one that rested was far more moist. This is now my go to recipe, and Damir will nearly eat the whole pan in one sitting.

Chicken Parm Stuffed Peppers

We had some frozen breaded chicken patties in our freezer that had been there for far too long, and this was a great way to use them up! I think the overall recipe was pretty good, but i just wasn’t impressed with the chicken we had… which is likely why it had taken up a permanent residence in the freezer. This recipe from Delish was a great way to finally finish it and make more room.

Deconstructed Pizza Casserole

This recipe from Kayln’s Kitchen was almost perfect. The flavor was fantastic, but it was a little meat heavy for my taste. I plan to make it again, but this time with more vegetables (peppers, onions), double the mushrooms, and a little bit of marinara sauce. Overall, great meal!

Banana Blondies

These bars from Life in the Lofthouse were so addicting! I brought half the pan into the office, and they were gone before lunch! I did skip her brown sugar frosting and instead used up some white frosting I had in my pantry, but these will absolutely be making a comeback in my kitchen.

Hello!

Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!

  • Anybody else struggle this time of year? I’m looking at these lovely sunbeams from my Alice In Wonderland shoot this summer to bring some sunshine to my day. I’ll be doing just fine, then be lying on the couch trying to feel like I can breathe again. I know it is ok, and these increased symptoms will pass, but it’s certainly not fun, especially when I have projects and ideas id like to tackle, but can’t get past this paralyzing anxiety. What do you guys use to help with SADD? #SADD #anxiety #ptsd #seasonaldepression  #winteristheworst #whydoilivehere
  • Halfway done! Still a ton to do, and I’ve learned ALOT already, like how not to sew in an invisible zipper, that I need a seam ripper, and need to invest in real fabric shears. But it’s actually coming together! Having never used a pattern before, I admit I looked at the pile of paper with some skepticism. Also, it kind of matches my couch. 😂 #cosplay #sewing #mccallspatterns #mccalls #mccallscosplay #spacesuit #plussizecosplay
  • Hanging out with mystic while I tackle my next sewing project. I like to think her interest is in hanging out with me, but there is a high chance she just wants the Fritos I’ve been munching... #cosplay #cosplaydog #sewing #mccallspatterns #cosplaymccalls #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram
  • Bull in boots! It was enough of a battle to get her into them, and she refuses to move anywhere wearing them! 😂😂😂 I was so looking forward to a little dance, but so far she is just laying there looking helpless. Maybe if I get out the peanut butter? #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram #doginboots #notcoolmom
  • I decided to spring for new ornaments this year and went from hyper colorful to classic beauty with a Gryffindor Christmas tree, complete with Hedwig ornaments! No DIY here (except the jingle bell snitch) just a very content Gryffindor snuggling on the couch enjoying the lights and a glass of wine. #twomoresleeps #harrypotterchristmas #gryffindor #housepride
  • New Christmas gift to myself... the long curly in emerald green from @rockstarwigs ! I’m hoping my ideas for some holiday makeup looks can inspire me to get back at it now that I can finally use my right arm! Any guesses or requests? #merrychristmastome #cosplaychristmas #rockstarwigs
  • The top 9 for madlikealyce! It has been a fantastic year, trying out all kinds of new things and really expanding on my love for makeup and cosplay. Thank you to all of my AMAZING FRIENDS AND FOLLOWERS who have been with me on this journey. I can wait until my shoulder has healed enough to get back to it, I have a whole LIST of things I am dying to try! In the meantime, I’m at least back to writing on the blog, so make sure to check me out there, Link in bio. ❤️ you all!
  • Sick day snuggles. But at least it’s my first day out of the sling! #countdownisover #pitbullsofinstagram #pitbull #drinkallthetea
