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!

  • I love finding inspiration in new places, and when @bearded_horror shared artwork by @xsullo a week or so ago, I knew I had to give it a try as a makeup! Seriously, such amazing art. I hope I did it justice! Check out their profile to see even more incredible works and compare to the original.
  • After this photoshoot im not sure how to go back to my plain black background... I mean if there isn’t ominous fog in the background, does it really even count?!?! #fogmachine #clownmakeup #scareactress #hauntlife #evietheclown
  • This is my level of excitement right now! The love I have gotten for Evie over the past few days have been amazing, thank you all so much! #clown #clownmakeup #clowns #hauntlife #scareactress
  • That’s not a Wiley grin, that’s me clamping my teeth together so I stopped chattering. This spring was BRUTAL in SD, and it was in the 30s when we shot this in an unheated parking garage. #clowningaround #clownmakeup #scareactor #scareactress #hauntlife
  • Evie is probably my favorite full-costume character I’ve created to date. It’s so fun to think a practice look I made for haunt last year will be a fully fledged character come haunt season next year! Also, I NEED these light bars @jibclimmer used in this shoot. If anyone has a few hundred dollars to donate to the cause just let me know. 😉 #clown #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #hauntlife #makeupartist
  • If only @grave_digger_the_clown would learn to share, Evie wouldn’t have to steal his shovel! #justclowningaround #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife photography credit goes to the incredibly talented @jibclimmer
  • Hey guys! It’s been a hell of last few months, but trust me, I’ve been busy! I’d like to introduce my newest character, Evie the Clown! Thanks so much to @jibclimmer for these incredible photos... more to come very shortly. #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife
  • Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more. 
Super excited that my family is NOT doing gifts this year! We are all just bringing a side dish, dessert, and a board game for some quality family time. What are you doing for Christmas? #thegrinchwhostolechristmas #whoville #grinch #grinchchristmas #christmasmovies #grinchmas
  • Even if I wanted to go, my schedule wouldn't allow it! 4 o'clock: wallow in self pity. 4:30: stare into the abyss. 5 o'clock: solve world hunger (tell no one). 5:30: jazzercise. 6:30: dinner with me, I can't cancel that again! 7 o'clock: wrestle with my self loathing. I'm booked! Course if I bump the loathing to 9 I can still be done in time to lay in bed, stare at the ceiling and slip slowly into madness. But what would I wear! #thegrinchwhostolechristmas #whoville #grinch #grinchchristmas #christmasmovies
