Domestic Diva

Mmmmm... you smell that?

The aromas drifting through the house are making me forget all about the dreary weather outside my window. It all started with some overly-ripe bananas that were sitting on the kitchen counter just screaming to be made into banana bread muffins. The recipe is simple and fast, so those were done in a jiffy.

And since I was already making a mess of the baking cabinet, I decided to flip through a recipe book to see what else I could make. As I searched, I remembered a jar of pumpkin pie filling I bought last fall that was still sitting in the pantry and decided to try a recipe for pumpkin pie dessert squares. I had to modify the recipe a bit (I had pumpkin pie filling rather than canned pumpkin), but I'm hoping they turn out as yummy as they sound. If the smell is any indication, I think this was a success!

This was my effort to be productive today as I enjoy spring break. Yes, I realize those papers will not grade themselves, but this is really so much more rewarding - at least in the short term.

**** Update****

The pumpkin pie dessert squares taste better than they smell. With a sweet, crunchy top and a moist, delicious center, this may be my new favorite treat! Here's a picture of the final product:
