We also started some homemade vanilla extract (yes, I did make a big trip to the liquor store. The population of […]

Bourbon Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Bourbon Chocolate Chip Banana Bread | PDXfoodlove

My mom makes the best darned banana bread in the entire world. End of story. Even by replicating the exact recipe, I can’t quite make it the same way. Maybe it’s that she uses the electric mixer to get the bananas extra well-blended. Maybe it has something to do with the pan or the oven… […]

Sometimes I wake up on weekend mornings, and something like this has already happened: I married one of the most industrious, crafty, talented and amazing people on the entire planet. Not just because of this cinnamon raisin bread. But it’s a good microcosm. I like this cinnamon raising bread because it’s a little cakier than […]

Mom’s Banana Bread with Walnuts

  You know how there’s always certain foods you associate with the place you grew up? For me, it’s banana bread. This is a recipe that has a lot of memories in it, though I think Mom made it with a slightly different recipe… One bite and I’m back in my mom’s kitchen. Nothing beats […]

Vanishing Zucchini Bread (Good thing it’s so easy to make)

I made it two days ago, and we’ve all but devoured the whole loaf. I may have mentioned, but right now we are in possession of a whole mess of zucchini. We had five to begin with. Three of them remain – the first one became zucchini tostadas and the second one became this bread. […]
