As you know one of my goals has been to learn to cook. I can’t say I have become a pro, but at least I haven’t completely burnt any meals yet. I can’t say they were all completely wonderful, but at least I am making progress. One thing I have found to be fun is baking. I wanted to make a fall treat the other day but do not like pumpkin. The choices for fall-themed baked goods were few, mostly because I didn’t know what to search for, so I settled on a chocolate chip banana bread. It turned out very good and my favorite part was the top because it had brown sugar and cinnamon that gave it an awesome “first bite”. Here is a picture of the inspiration. The recipe that was used was just a banana bread recipe and then I threw some chocolate chips in at the end. I did not include the lemon juice or the walnuts that the original recipe called for. Pretty good if I do say so myself.
