Diamonds, pearls and bows daaarrrrling. I have a thing for only blinging out my texting digits.
I made pies this weekend. But this post isn’t about pies. This is the story of what happened to the leftover blueberries from those pies.
The farmers market always makes me buy too many berries. I see the pints of fresh berries all lined up at a stall and I just can’t help myself. They smell delicious, they look divine and who doesn’t like supporting local farmers. So of course I bought too many. I couldn’t let them go to waste, so decided to make some blueberry banana bread instead.
Inspired by this post from the Chef-in-training.
Last Ingredient to fold in before baking
Enjoy all the blueberry goodness.
Tuesday I had the pleasure of attending “Backstories from the rectory art studio” an art exhibition curated by my fabulous friend Jaenine. You can read about the event in Guerrilla magazine.
In honor of the shows title I pulled out a little “backstory” of my own.
I’m so excited for the weekend! There are a million little things I want to do. Mostly though I want to make my man his favorite treat. Banana Bread.
He’s Banana’s for the stuff. He looks at banana bread the same way Golum looked at “the Ring”. I love watching him eyeball a new loaf, he subtly monitors every slice taken from the loaf, almost mentally calculating how many slices he has left to savor.
I still haven’t found the perfect recipe though. The bread is never awful, it’s always good but for some reason all the bread recipes that I’ve used always take years to bake. It’s a big commitment making Banana bread because I’m never quite sure as to when the darn thing will be done. Some loaves have taken 2 full hours to bake…yeesh.
So I’ve rounded up the following recipes with this weekend in mind. Not sure which one I’ll try out but here’s hoping I won’t be a slave to the stove.
Anyone have any recommendations? Family favs?
