Duet: Banana Bread / Avett Brothers “The Carpenter”

The food: Almost every week, we buy a bunch of bananas … and almost every week we have at least a few that get too ripe before we eat them. Instead of wasting the overdone fruit, I use them in bread. After all, other than the bananas, this recipe uses baking staples everyone typically has in the pantry (cheap!). Banana bread is one of my favorite things, so[…]

The food: Butternut squash soup is one of my fall favorites. Sweet, spicy, thick, creamy…it’s all sorts of autumn goodness. It’s also something I never thought I could make, but thanks to this blog I decided to give it a shot. I looked up about a dozen recipes and came up with this simplified version that incorporates only the most common elements. It turned out the perfect balance of[…]
