Easy, Moist Banana Bread with Maple Syrup

Good Morning! Life is beautiful!

I’ve recently found myself with an overabundance of bananas that have started turning to the dark side.  (As you can probably tell from me featuring two banana recipes back-to-back.  Haha.  If you haven’t already checked it out, skip on over to last week’s recipe: Triple Chocolate Banana Muffins.) We just can’t seem to consume them fast enough.  And just when I thought we didn’t have enough, I was gifted a bunch from a work function.  SO. MANY. BANANAS.  But fret not, instead of throwing out these little fellas, I used this as an opportunity to turn that banana frown upside down and finally tackle the obstacle of creating a delectable, moist banana bread from scratch.  This week’s post is the result of doing some research and experimenting in the kitchen.  I present unto you, my version of easy, moist banana bread with maple syrup!

Now I’m dating myself….Continue reading

Fig, Brie and Berries, Oh My!

Good Morrow Ladies and Gents!

Have I got a delectable recipe for you this week: Figs, Brie and Berries, oh my!

I’ve had figs on my mind for the past week and have been trying to come up with a unique and interesting recipe that would incorporate said craving.  I came across a recipe where there was soft cheese baked in the fig and decided to put my own little spin on it.  I decided to use brie, Continue reading
