I’m always fiddling around with recipes I come across, to add a dash (or in some cases more than just a dash) of healthy for the kids. And with Valentine’s Day coming up, I’ve been scouring
With Valentine’s Day coming up, I’ve been scouring pinterest for some fun Valentine’s Day treats for the days leading u to the 14th.
I came across a delicious recipe for strawberry bread and thought this would make a great Valentine’s Day breakfast addition or deliciousness in the school lunchbox. I’ve revamped the recipe quite a bit to try and make this as healthy as possible.
And I made my bread in a Bundt pan to make the slices not as overwhelming for my kids to finish when they take the same to school.
