I’m always searching for that “perfect banana bread recipe that will make me want to come back for seconds”. And now I found it. I came up with this recipe by combining some of the components of Arlene’s Pumpkin Bread with a banana bread recipe I’ve made before (with good but not amazing results). Voila! Perfect banana bread that had me coming back for seconds.
Four years ago I didn’t know what a rainbow cookie was. Scratch that. I had seen these rainbow cookies before, not knowing what they were called. I didn’t like them though (or I assumed I didn’t) because they have jam in them. To me, jam belongs on sandwiches, not in cookies. Chocolate belongs in cookies. Duh. But I enjoy spending the time to make rainbow cookies, because I know other people like them.
A few weeks ago, my father-in-law asked me “Have you ever made cinnamon rolls?” He’s obviously on to me–he knows if he suggests a dessert, I’ll suddenly feel an overwhelming urge to make it. I’ve never made cinnamon rolls. But I love them. What’s not to love? Warm, soft, sweet, covered in icing…it’s the perfect comfort food for a brisk fall morning (or anytime!). We were having dinner at my in-laws’ house the following week, and I was bringing dessert. Why not give cinnamon rolls a try?
