It’s Friday! It’s girls night! It’s your birthday? You got a raise? You had a bad day? Whatever it is, I’ll take any excuse to bake up some goodies. Last week I had a craving for chocolate so I used the “it’s Friday” excuse to bake one of my favorite treats growing up – my Grandma Ardith’s brownies.
Isn’t it funny how something that looks so gross can make something so deliciously good? I had to keep telling Keenan NOT to throw away the dark, rotten bananas in the fruit bowl — no matter how gross they looked. I assured him I had better plans for them than the trash bin. My plan, of course, was to make banana bread.
There’s just nothing better than hot cup of soup or stew on a cold, rainy day — and everyone knows we have enough of those in Portland!
