go site Does anyone else hoard overripe bananas in their freezer? I always seem to have a running bag of bananas in my freezer that I intend to use for baking but then forget about. So when I was cleaning out my freezer this past weekend, I busted out the black bananas and made a big batch of these healthier banana muffins from Cookie and Kate

Frozen Dog Treats

My dog is obsessed with these frozen dog treats. She will do ANYTHING for one. I used to buy her doggie ice cream for a special treat, but after I found this recipe on Pinterest, I decided homemade and all-natural was the way to go — and it’s a lot cheaper.
