Crusty Artisan Bread Bowls

Is there anything better than the smell of freshly baked bread in your house? Whenever I prepare bread of any form, I can count on my husband’s voice within minutes after putting it in the oven inquiring of what I’m making and when it’s going to be done. Without fail. It’s one of the things I look forward to. Having somebody by my side that can get as excited about food as I am is a huge blessing to me. He wouldn’t really call himself a foodie and most days can’t figure out why in the world I’m so excited about making, eating, and looking at food.

All. Day. Long.

With that being said, I too am a lover of all things bread. And these bread bowls? To die for. So, so, good. [Read more…]

The Best Banana Bread

Happy Friday, Everyone!

Today I am sharing my recipe for the best Banana Bread you will ever make and ultimately sink your teeth into. This recipe was passed down to me by my mother-in-law, who is a great cook. It is also a good basic recipe that you can add anything you desire to. I sometimes add chocolate chips (what else?), dried fruit, or nuts. Use whatever your heart desires. A handful (about half a cup) should be more than enough.

This recipe always reminds me of my husband’s sister, Rachel, who absolutely adores this bread. There’s no way I could be sharing this recipe today without mentioning her name. She is the one who first introduced me to it and prepares it for pretty much any get-together or trip we go on. It really is the perfect thing to bring to a party, potluck, new mom or neighbor. It usually doesn’t last very long, but in case you do have any leftovers, it will keep extremely well in your freezer for a couple of weeks.
