    Easy and Healthy Banana Bread Recipe

        This banana bread recipe has bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S, and only 5 ingredients total.  The motto in our household growing up is, “a banana a day keeps the doctor away”.  I would eat it plain, in cereal, dried, as chips, with oatmeal, turned into fritters, or rolled into a spring wrapper, dusted with brown sugar, then pan-fried (called Turon).  My…

    This is 32! Happy Birthday to Me

      Yesterday was a special day for me.  I turned the big 3-2.  Turning 32 isn’t necessarily a traditional big milestone that most people celebrate.  Especially after you reach a certain age, a birthday just becomes any other day.  No special than the day before or the day after.  But this birthday was definitely a MILESTONE for me in so many ways……

    Who is LOUWEEZYanne?

      LOUWEEZYanne is me! My real name is Louise Anne, though I usually go by just Louise.  Growing up, I had so many nicknames from LA, Lou, Weezy, Lulu, to Ley-ley.  I figured that if I somehow mashed them all together, they essentially added up to who I am today. But LOUWEEZYanne is more than just a compilation of my…
