• Banana Bread (+ recipe)

    My mom does a lot of baking around the holidays. My all time favorite thing┬ámy mom┬ámakes is banana bread. I think it’s the smell of banana and when it’s combined with coffee or tea-it’s a delightful snack in the middle of the day or even a quick breakfast.

  • Myke’s Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

Both Myke and I signed up, which means we were going against one another, which can get pretty competitive and trash talk usually ensues. We both looked up our own recipes and did our own baking. Neither one of us won-but I have a great recipe for gingerbread…
