Egg Free Banana Bread

Banana bread is one of my favorite things to bake. It's easy, relatively mess free and I get to use up those super ripe bananas that browned overnight. Since going egg and dairy free to try to solve Maverick's intolerances, I haven't been able to use my tried a true recipe. After a bit of… Continue reading Egg Free Banana Bread

Since Justin joined the Air Force, I have heard some variation of, "It's not just the Airman who joins, it's his wife too, you're serving right beside him." At first, I didn't really think that much of it. But, the longer I have been apart of this community and the more military spouses I meet,… Continue reading What I’ve learned since becoming a Military Wife
