My Mom’s Best Banana Loaf

I’ve been challenging myself lately, first to blog more regularly, and do the things I have been wanting to do ever since I started the blog, and second to learn how to swim. My best friends, Jon, and my family have been harping on the fact that I always say I want to learn how to swim – this has been top of my New Year resolution list since…forever? At

My Mom’s (Chocolate) Banana Muffins

My mom’s a SAHM (stay-at-home mom), or more commonly and unglamorously known as a housewife. Some of my relatives probably think that my mom had it good, because she never did have to work, but I know that being a housewife ain’t easy.

Anyhow, work’s been pretty slow this week, so I’ve had time to think of what to bake this coming weekend. If only I had more bananas, I’d make another round of this banana cake/loaf.

Banana-shaped Chocolate Banana Cake

I’ve been on a baking dry spell recently. My mind has been filled with tons of ideas, but because of the failure of my matcha macarons and mango souffle earlier in the week, I’ve been a little sian or wary of trying new recipes. People always say that it’s okay to fail, but maybe because I’ve always been a results-oriented person, I get particularly dejected when something I imagine inside my
