Banana bread might be the first thing I bake in a new kitchen to feel like home, but shortly after has to be homemade pizza. It’s the savory equivalent, coziness-wise, and nothing makes me feel quite at home like a bowl of dough rising in the corner, a floured counter, and visions of crispy, cheesy, meaty goodness dancing through my head.
To me, a house just isn’t a home until you’ve baked a loaf of banana bread in it.
Banana bread was the very first post I ever did for a reason – it is, hands-down, my favorite baked treat to make. It’s incredibly forgiving and requires only one bowl to throw together; it’s so cozy, comforting, and just always hits the spot. I have many versions of banana bread here on my site, but there’s always room for one more, right?! A new banana bread for our lovely new home!
Hello from the other side (of moving)! I kept trying to find an hour or two to post these bowls of sunshine this weekend, but between packing, moving, unpacking, organizing, and watching the season premiere of Game of Thrones (priorities!!) that hour just never materialized. But I promise these mango green smoothie bowls are totally worth the wait!
As anyone who’s followed along with this here blog over the past few years knows, I never, ever get sick of new homemade granola recipes. And this tropical toasted coconut stovetop granola just happens to be my new favorite!
First things first: despite it’s traditional sheet pan appearances, this really is a stovetop granola. No baking. Comes together in a flash. All that good stuff. I just spread it out on a sheet pan to cluster (critical step) and then took all my pictures on it and realized how silly and confusing that was. WHOOPS.
