My husband - a Southern boy through and through when it comes to his food - is a fan of simple recipes. Leave it the way it was originally written - using cookbooks with just WORDS and no pictures...(wha??) and trusting recipes from a few specific chefs only.
Me? I'm a little more adventurous. First, I need pretty pictures so I know what my food is supposed to look like when it's done. Second, I head to the world wide internets first for recipes that have been tried and reviewed by hundreds of every day cooks like myself. Third, I'll usually change it up a little bit.
Such is the case with the 2 loaves of banana bread that I made this past weekend. We were heading out of town for a few days, and my bananas were already turning brown. (I have this love/hate relationship with bananas. No one in our house really eats them, like EVER...but they are so darn cheap I can never pass them up at the store. It's a sickness) We do, however, enjoy a good banana bread.
So...make note of these recipes. They both resulted in a delicious banana bread that ended up being more like dessert than the simple recipes I'm used to.
The first - Banana Nutella Bread. I'd seen this on Pinterest and knew I had to try it at some point. With a banana hanger full of brown bananas, it was first up on my list.
The second pin that caught my eye was this one:
Did you do any baking this week?
