Skillet Banana Bread, Cornbread Style

My husband and I have been home for a few days from our visit to Maui. It was a last-minute vacation that had us hopping on a plane just a few days after booking our tickets. The trip was Plan B to a grand winter getaway to some never-been exotic places that will have to […]

Pumpkin Cheese Bread

  My town is a maze of jogging trails, linking each part of the neighborhood to the others.  It’s one of the things I love about living here; I’m only a short drive from San Francisco but here it feels like living in the country.  A fellow local might correct me by saying that the trails are actually […]

Kavring: Swedish Dark Rye Bread

  One of the destinations on our recent Scandinavia/Russia trip last month was Sweden.  With stops in six countries over a two-week trip, Stockholm was our main focus for two days after disembarking our cruise ship that took us through the Baltic Sea.  This was the first European trip my husband and I have taken in […]

Banana Bread with Cookie Butter

  If it’s been a little quiet around here, it’s because I’ve been hanging out at this spot the last couple of days.  My husband and I weren’t sure if we’d make this trip this year because of his cycling accident so we’re very happy to be here now.  We’ve taken it very, very easy […]

Banana Coconut Bread

  Today was about meeting deadlines, about my internet connection freezing as I attempted to save the full page of text I had just written (I’m normally so “save”-happy, I don’t know what happened today).  It was about having to start over, trying to recapture the words that seemed to flow freely before I lost […]

Basque Pumpkin Cornbread

  Five years ago my husband and I spent a week in Basque country, mostly on the Spanish side but we also crossed the border to French territory.  Our base for that visit was San Sebastian and with a few days dedicated to that area we were able to get a tiny feel for Basque […]

Banana Nutella Bread

  I meant to share this recipe later in the week.  There are a few more dishes that claim a higher spot on the list–tested, photographed, patiently waiting for their time on this blog.  But it seems a game of musical chairs is being played.  Round and round they go until the music stops and […]

Banana Chocolate Bread

  Along with a few other fruits and vegetables, bananas are a staple in my home.  They’re a must for smoothies and more importantly, they’re a great source of energy for bike rides.  Bananas are also potassium-rich which means that they can help stave off muscle cramps during or after a ride. The only thing […]
