Vegan Banana Bread

It's one of those days when you realize that you have a number of very overripe bananas and you better do something with them before the fruit flies move in.  I froze some for smoothies and the rest became this banana bread.

I know that there are millions of banana bread recipes out there but this one is vegan and it's so perfectly delicious that I had to post it.  It rose up beautifully, the crumb is tender and it tastes great.

I added pecans, because I'm allergic to the traditionally used walnuts, but you can use either one or leave the nuts out altogether.  You could also add chocolate chips...

It's fall, tomorrow is the midterm elections, and frankly I needed a little something sweet today.

Chocolate Filled Rose Cakes

What better time to use a rose muffin pan than for Valentine's Day. I made my Valentine some mini rose bundt cakes, filled with fudge, because Valentine's Day must involve chocolate.

Sweet Potato Peanut Stew

I can't believe that it's taken me this long to make this recipe. Sweet potato peanut stew is a delicious savory bowl of winter comfort food.  It's a one pot meal with sweet potatoes(yams), greens, garbanzo beans and peanuts for protein.
