These days, my cookbook collection is made up of 60+ gloriously tasty books, but it all started with my very first cookbook purchase: a used thrift-store copy of Mrs. Field’s Best Ever Cookie Book . Many years after purchasing it, I can say that this has been one of my favorite and most-used baking books. My pupils change into heart shapes whenever I read it – swear. This recipe only stands to make me love it more. This cake is moist, full of banana flavor and includes added banana slices within layers of chocolate frosting.
Every time my husband and I play the lotto (which is hardly ever), we convince ourselves we’re going to win it. We usually only buy a ticket when the jackpot is huge after rolling over a few times, but we don’t let the decreased odds stand in the way of our daydreaming. We’ll pay off our student loans! We’ll build an extension on our house!
I haven’t been hurting for a good banana bread recipe (I LOVE my mom’s ), but I have an insatiable itch to try new recipes. Always. I just can’t help it. I’ve heard good things about banana breads with sour cream in them.
“Avocado.” Normally, the first thing you think of (if you’re not abnormal like me) is guacamole . Then there are slightly unusual people like me who do nothing but slice it up, sprinkle it with salt and hot cock, and eat it straight. With chopsticks. See, in most situations, avocado is usually eaten raw.
i 3 Votes Have you heard the good news?? The year long canned pumpkin shortage is officially over. I think some of the grocery stores in Greenville haven’t gotten the memo- it’s still pretty hard to find.
My husband always says that I have a tendency to buy too much fruit, it's true and I don't know why I pick them compulsively and then end up with ripe fruit screaming for help. This week, I had over ripe bananas sitting on my counter so that gave me an excuse to bake, and yes, I do need excuses to justify my passion. So naturally, my choice fell on chocolate banana cake. The cake is amazingly delicious, with a deep chocolate flavor.
It's not the first time I eat something in a restaurant and instantly think "how can I recreate this at home?". In fact, this happens to me most of the time if I'm having something that is really nice, but at least seemingly easy to make at home. I had one of these moments after having the Burnt Orange Cafe's walnut bread with avocado, and I couldn't wait to try making my version of it. In Finland I used to bake my own bread all the time.
When life gives you zucchini bake this chocolate zucchini bread and when life gives you carrots bake this carrot cake . If you are a member of Costco or other such membership warehouse clubs, you might have understood what I’m trying to tell. For those who haven’t heard about Costco, it’s a store which sells products at low prices but at very high volume, which is usually preferred by large families and businesses. To make it more clear, if you pay $3 for 2lbs of carrots in your regular grocery store, you would be paying the same for 10lbs in Costco. Of course it’s a steal but what to do with the 5 kilos of carrots or 3 kilos of zucchini in a family of 3 adults and 1 kid?
