Blueberry Banana Zucchini Bread

It’s been a bit since I bored you with yet another banana bread recipe, but this one seemed new and different enough to bring back my favorite food group! Zucchini bread is delicious, banana bread is, of course, my favorite, and blueberries in late summer are so stupendously tasty that this recipe was a total home run. I realize it’s now officially fall, but I’ve been a bit slow on the updates of late, so please bear with me ūüôā (more…)

Cream Cheese Swirl Pumpkin Bread

Fall is the best season. I’m pretty sure that’s an undisputed fact if you live in New England. But for some reason this year, I had a really hard time letting summer go. Maybe because it was one of the better summer’s I’ve ever had? Or because I’m just not ready to contemplate braving another winter like we had last year? Whatever the reason, I think I’ve finally turned a corner. Fall is here, and I am so excited! (more…)

Brown Butter Banana Bread with Strawberries and Walnuts

So I made banana bread again. For what feels like the 1,437th time. That may be a slight exaggeration, but only very slight. I love the stuff! Can’t stay away. It is to me what chocolate and French fries are — totally addictive. And can I just tell you, when you make brown butter banana bread, not only does it completely reframe your thoughts on banana bread, but it also makes your kitchen smell like heaven in a worldly form. It’s divine. (more…)

Corn Spoon Pudding

Every once in a while, inspiration strikes, and¬†I’ll act on it without thinking. I am generally a very thorough thinker, so this kind of behavior is a bit unsettling, and often doesn’t result in a situation I anticipated. A month or so ago when I was home visiting my family, they bought a box of cornbread mix to make corn spoon pudding with for dinner that night, and it sounded good so I bought a box too. Later that week I bought a big container of sour cream and a bunch of scallions, but as soon as I got home realized I had NO use for a giant pan of cornbread in my life. (more…)

Banana Zucchini Bread with a Cream Cheese Swirl

Is it just me, or has this winter been really bad on waistlines across New England? We’ve now had four weeks straight of massive once-a-week snow storms, and I¬†know¬†I’m not the only one who is ready to head south and never come back. Since that isn’t exactly an option, and going outdoors when it’s -10 and/or there are snow drifts up to my forehead isn’t exactly appealing, that leaves few options for how to pass the time. Read, work, eat, watch TV, work, bake, eat, read more, eat more, watch a movie, work, bake, eat, repeat. Are you picking up what I’m putting down? SO MUCH FOOD. And lazyness. And couch time. And kitty cuddles (my personal favorite). (more…)

Grapefruit Olive Oil Cake

Last weekend was one of those times when nothing¬†was going my way. I had a really fun couple of days planned and was super psyched come Friday evening,¬†but by midday Sunday I found myself moping in bed with¬†a great¬†pout going.¬†By no fault of mine, or anyone else’s really, all of my carefully laid plans dissolved,¬†and I ended up spending hours curled up in bed with my kitties and a new book. In many instances that’d have been a great use of a day, but last weekend it just felt like a waste. (more…)

Multigrain Pumpkin Clover Rolls

Happy, Happy New Year, friends! Here’s hoping 2015 is a great year — I have a feeling it’s going to be.¬†I had meant to share this yummy recipe with you weeks ago, but… that didn’t happen, now did it? I was busy working (LOVE my new job), gift shopping, Christmas-movie-watching, spending the holidays with my family (and not touching a computer for days), attempting to figure out the secret¬†sauce for online dating (still don’t have a clue), and otherwise enjoying the holiday season. So, now Christmas AND New Years have passed, and pumpkin season is definitely¬†behind us, but I say, so what! Maybe you, like me, have an extra can or two of pumpkin still hanging around that needs using up. (more…)
