I found this recipe for Whole Wheat Banana Bread but I decided to change a few things to make it my own.  I had some zucchini that needed to be used.  We all know that fresh produce does not last long so everything that I make right now has zucchini it it The original recipe did not call for zucchini but I decided to throw in a cup.  The result was very good....

black eye and crossfit

I’ve been walking around the past two weeks with a black eye. You would not believe the looks that I receive from others that do not know me.  I wish I had this awesome story to go along with my black eye….but I don’t!  My 17 month old son gave it to me.  Pretty boring story, huh?   It’s a good thing he is so cute!  It’s hard to...
