Frozen bananas for the bread

Bananas for the bread

Banana Bread

Nanner bread

When Austin brought me eggs earlier this week, I promised baked goods in return. Last night after a much needed girl’s outing to 4Peaks with (photo shy) Sheila, I aproned-up, starting with two loaves of banana bread.


Red velvet meets the African

Matt's first red velvet cupcake

Red Velvet

Tonight I have a fundraising event at a gallery in downtown Phoenix. The artist — an incredible photographer — has donated much of her time and supplies to help this organization. In turn, I’m helping bring food for cocktail hour. Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting seem to always go over well. Matty had never had one and was very pleased with the bright red concoction.

Cookie dough is so tempting


Oatmeal chocolate chip

While the oven was on (and really on, thanks to a new breaker!), a couple dozen chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies made the menu too.

Tomorrow, I’m teaching a friend to bake bread. Sunday, I’m helping feed a sick friend. As my mom would say, two birds — one stone.

Wishing you a peaceful weekend,
