Blueberry Banana Bread

In the oven, the blueberries burst creating purple-blue swirls in the banana bread. Add a handful of blueberries to a standard banana bread recipe. Substitute mashed bananas for the acorn squash in the recipe.

I’ve been using this same recipe for years which uses buttermilk + vegetable oil, making it a healthy treat. I love throwing this together when I’m particularly worn down with writing and want something delicious baking in the oven to have with tea.

The loaf always comes out golden.

Roasted Vegetables

IMG_0545Sometimes all I want to eat are vegetables.

I had a very dear friend visiting this weekend, and this is the feast we rustled up for a low-key sunday dinner. We roasted eggplant drizzled with oil and chopped garlic; brussel sprouts seasoned with salt, pepper, balsamic and oil; and sweet potatoes sliced and perfectly crisped. The salad was delicious too: sliced red peppers, mixed greens, avocado, finely chopped onions, herbs-de-provence, olive oil, balsamic, salt pepper. It was the perfect elixir for a long week.
