This week in my kitchen




    Hello my friends, on this gray and wet morning here in Oklahoma! I thought I would take part in the fun blog hop going on at Beauty That Moves. It's the "this week in my kitchen" blog hop, and so I will share a bit from my kitchen--- check Heather's page to see what others are doing in theirs!

   In my kitchen I finally got myself together enough (and the baby napped enough!) to make some banana bread. I was in the mood to make it a little fancier though, so when I mashed up the banana (just using THIS recipe found online) I diced up some peaches and mashed them in with them. 

   Ohhh goodness, it is so good! The bread came out very moist too, which I love. Cut of the end (I love corners and crusts! Anyone else out there love a good bread heel?) and put on some butter and made some vanilla chai. Perfection for a rainy day.

   Another thing I love about the kitchen is the good view of the bird feeder, and I can keep track of the goings-on outside under the cedar tree. This past winter I potted some little succulents to put on my window sill to enjoy when it was still cold and brown outside. After Audrey's birthday party with the pony cake, I put the cake bunting in one of the flower pots--- so festive, don't you think? :)

  As for art around here, I'm working on a large commission and also thinking about Christmas art. I hope to have a great selection put together for you all once the holidays roll around! One painting at a time, though...one painting at a time!~

   Have a wonderful day!~ And thanks for stopping in my kitchen!

  1. That banana bread looks so good! I sometimes add chocolate chips to mine, but I will definitely try the peaches next time. And the heel/crust/corner of any bread, cake or brownie is the best! I would definitely arm wrestle anyone for the heel of a loaf of bread. ;)

  3. I love how you recycled the cake bunting! So very cute....and my oh my that banana bread looks amazing. Think I just might have to give a go at some such similar baking. I'm off to print the recipe and have my fingers crossed I'll find some peaches or chocolate chips handy!

  8. i just happen to have some black bananas in the freezer waiting for a good banana loaf recipe. I love the addition of the extra fruit. I'll try and have a go and let you know how I get on.
