Baking Like It’s ’99

This past week I found myself in the kitchen quite a bit! I whipped up some hearty meals, like burgers (not pictured) and Mahi Mahi fish tacos (not pictured) and cookies (not pictured). What I did photograph was childhood favorite Chocolate Chip Banana Bread, or affectionately abbreviated to CCBB.

Banana Bread

Surprisingly, banana bread baking was inspired by leftover taco sour cream, and the fact that I had two perfectly ripe bananas to use! On a hunch that I had all the ingredients necessary, I had Nance send over the original recipe:


A full pantry and Saturday’s torrential rain created the perfect storm for 1999 nostalgia!
