…. And she’s back. Well readers it’s been quite a summer! I’ve been wearing my attorney hat for most of it but also went on vacation with the Family to Puglia. What a wonderful region! It will deserve its own City Profile with some help from my friends, of course.
I am never ready for fall: it’s sad to let summer go but we have the holidays to look forward too. This year I have been so busy that I nearly didn’t notice when the end of August turned into the beginning of September (thanks regulators for making me forget what day it is!). Now it’s October, it’s getting chillier every day and I haven’t even started the seasonal wardrobe switch… I just never have time to make it happen.
But I digress. One of the many things I have done during this long period of silence is perfecting some of my favorite recipes. Now that Baby Lemonade eats like a grown up I have been cooking up a storm for her too. Breakfast in particular is one of the most challenging times because she refuses to drink milk and wants to eat a proper breakfast like a grown up. I have never been a baker, I lack the patience and discipline this activity takes. But there are some recipes that are easy, straightforward and really difficult to mess up. Those are the recipes I am more inclined to try.
Baby Lemonade eats lots of fruit for breakfast and bananas are the most portable. Since I feel really bad about wasting food the overripe ones get the banana bread treatment. This recipe, though is not completely mine as I adapted it from the one I found in an excellent book by Nick Malgieri, Bake!
