My last week of maternity leave

Well, my 'vacation' is over. No, it didn't feel like a vacation. Dan is a very good baby but between him and Nick, pumping milk, driving Nick downtown for school 3 days a week, working out and my chores, there just wasn't as much time for cooking as I had hoped there would be on my leave.

I made a few more repeats lately:

Banana Cake. One of the most popular recipes on the internet and rightly so. I made this for an annual cookout at my in-laws. It's requested every year and raved over.




Glazed Chocolate Chip Brownies. I won't be surprised if these are requested next year at that same cookout. They were a big hit.



Cheeseburger Macaroni. That's an old stand-by around here now.




Multigrain Snickerdoodles. I didn't want to make those oatmeal cookies again (well, really I did but I thought it was time for something different).



That's about all I can remember right now. I have other things I meant to catch up on here over the weekend but I never found the time.

I know going back is going to be a tough transition, but you are a super mom and I know all will be fine! :)

I hope that your last week is wonderful and that the transition back to work is easy.

I like that cheeseburger mac( I use ground turkey). Do you have Big Lots where you live? I picked up dreamfields pasta in MI for 1.50 each.

Good luck with going back to work. I know there just never seems to be enough hours in a day for a mom.

Thanks for the hooking me up with the best Banana Cake ever! Was wondering if you could take "any" cake out of the oven & put into the freezer to retain the moisture?? Also, we tried the Bottle O' Beer Chicken Thighs tonite...eh, doubt I'll make again but will try the other one you said you liked better. I make new recipes every week so I really appreciate your blog in particular. Keep up the good work!
