Dark Chocolate Raspberry Pie BarsNothing screams raspberry season like going back to Iowa and picking raspberries with your mom. A family friend has a large patch of raspberries and we were lucky enough to get to go pick and enjoy them while I was home. We picked SO many that there was plenty for me to bring back to North Carolina and enjoy/experiment with. So I figured, this was the perfect opportunity to try some new recipes. I asked you all on Instagram which you would prefer: a breakfast or dessert recipe and of course the results were SO close and after researching recipes, I knew there was NO WAY I could just make one. So I am kicking off the first raspberry recipe of the season with: Dark Chocolate Raspberry Pie Bars. I KNOW. The name says it all! I knew as soon as I saw this recipe, the simple ingredients and how quick and easy it would be to make these, they would be the dessert option I would try! Below you will find the ingredients, recipe and step by step instructions on how to make these.
Banana BreadWhen it's a rainy day in Iowa and mom has ripe bananas on the kitchen counter, you make a quick batch of banana bread! Mom has been making this exact recipe since I was a little girl and it will always be my favorite. I love just classic banana bread, but sometimes it is fun to add chocolate chips, nuts and even blueberries to the recipe! So whether you're like me and like your banana bread simple or want it to have that extra topping, this recipe is amazing either way!
