A happiest new year to all of you. My apologies having disappeared since Thanksgiving, but life has been busier than ever. But I’m back and ready to roll for 2017 and find that cooking with my friends is really the only time I get to see my friends. Teaching at two universities, working on marketing projects and a home baking business with my friend keeps me pretty darn busy. You’ll find me less in the kitchen these days and more at my local coffee bar grading papers, planning courses and just trying to stay afloat in this busy thing called life. But when I’m in the kitchen I’m still a whirling dervish making many messes and many meals. I just haven’t had the time to jot them down. Fingers to the keys, I’m back and hoping to create many new recipes in 2017.
As the year kicks off, I’ve been focusing on warming foods like fresh baked loaves of banana bread for breakfast, hearty soups and succulent stews. In fact, I made a Moroccan Lamb stew from Epicurious which is divine. I highly recommend that you give this recipe a try.
But for my first recipe of the year, I’m sharing my banana bread recipe which I do believe is a winner. (At least with all of my friends and family!). I was told by someone recently that it wasn’t on my website anymore and I couldn’t want that. So enjoy. Get mixing, blending and invite a friend over for company and some kitchen help!
