Wow, sorry for the incredibly long absence! I thought I was going to just move, settle in and be ready to go. Not really, no. I moved from Syracuse, NY to Maine in early July and now I’m finally getting to the point where I’m starting to food again regularly. That’s to blog, or shoot, or even think about, really. It’s been a very, very busy 2 months but I’m BACK!
In order to celebrate me going personally bananas I thought it would be appropriate to dedicate this week to “going bananas.” I made both banana muffins and banana bread. After eating several bananas as fruit, too, I’m SICK of bananas! I’d like things to just settle down for awhile and not be so bananas, personally, too.
Without further ado, here are some banana food photos. As always both recipes will be listed under the “Read more” link. (Note: I didn’t get a lighting setup photo – sorry!) The muffins are adapted from Joy of Baking. The bread recipe I have is older than I am – not sure the original source.
Banana bread is one of my all-time favorite foods. I’ve never made banana bread from scratch before but I’ve made the boxed stuff since I was a kid. Learning how all of these ingredients work together is great! While researching banana bread for the recipe I learned that the baking soda/baking powder had to be in there to make this particular bread rise. I know you pro chefs are thinking “no duh!” but hey, that’s why I’m starting to cook.

This is the setup photo for my shoot. I shot this to give you an idea what went into today’s shoot.
