i had to share this recipe with ya’ll

because i absolutely love banana chocolate chip cupcakes!

now, i’m not a fan of banana flavors in general,

but this is the perfect amount of banana.

if you like banana bread you’ll most likely enjoy these.

yes, i do use betty crocker mix….

but it is really easy, quick, and tasty!

i made some the other day,

but didn’t think to take photos.

not to mention i can’t decorate cupcakes worth crap ­čśŤ

*

ingredients

1 box betty crocker supermoist yellow cake mix

(plus the ingredients on the back of the box: eggs, vegetable oil, water)

1 cup very ripe banana (2 medium bananas)

3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

directions

follow all directions on the back of the cake mix box.

mash the 1 cup banana and add to the rest of the ingredients before mixing.

mix ingredients on low for 30 seconds, then on medium for 2 minutes.

gradually add the chocolate chips.

keep following box directions from there.

*

usually makes about 27 cupcakes.

frost with chocolate frosting or even leave plain and enjoy!

last weekend was dad’s weekend at

washington state university.

i wanted to make something special for my dad

since i don’t get to see him often.

what better than his favorite dessert,

apple pie!

i found a recipe for mini apple pies on the little bit funky blog.

these sounded much less daunting since i have never made an apple pie before.

they were quite simple to make,

just a bit time consuming (2 hours).

but the result was fabulous!

i, personally, don’t like apple pie ,

but my dad, boyfriend, and guests loved loved loved them!

the little bit funky blog has a ton of other great recipes as well.

this is the only one i have tried so far,

but i will definitely be making more!

don’t forget the vanilla ice cream!
