Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I wanted to use up some banana's that were ripening quickly to uselessness so i looked up banana bread recipes. I found one tempting recipe but it required baking soda (which i did not have). I looked up "5 ingredient recipe for banana bread" and this is the link i found  http://bakememore.com/ Please visit the website for more delicious & quick recipes.

The author of bakememore has inspired me to bake more often. I don't bake on a regular basis because i tend to be horrible at it. The thing is, this recipe includes a cake mix from a box. It is more delicious than i'd imagined. I used a yellow cake mix, it was sweeter that what i would have liked (probably because of the chocolate chips). I think i'll try pineapple mix, like the author did, next time.  :)

The bread took about 50 minutes to cook. The consitancy was moist and fluffy, lots of flavor, and would pair up GREAT with coffee (my FAVORITE).

Happy eating!

Revenge!

I finished my last "idea" from the Magic Idea Bag.
Click Here to go to the shirt.


After a long day at work i decided to pull out my next idea. FUN! So now im working on the next shirt. Should be out VERY soon. 

Ken and I are going to an art group session to paint tonight so that should be very exciting since i haven't painted in so long. Moving to Virginia Beach has been one of the best decisions i've made. Happy Mommy's day to all the lucky ones. I sure do love mine.
