Best Banana Bread

The oven is set at 350 degrees, the most common temperature for baking bread. I hear Alexa make the notorious sound letting me know that the timer is up!

My son perks up from the couch and sprints over to me in the kitchen. A Cheshire cat smile painted all over his face!

It’s like he ran over here with a hanger in his mouth because that smile goes from ear to ear. He steps back, patiently waiting as I open the oven and pull out the bread because it’s done!

The smell is a mix of sweetness and mouther watering goodness filling the air. This isn’t just any old bread, this my friend, is banana bread! And to top it off, the best banana bread in the whole wide world according to my son!

…awww making a mother’s heart melt!

He endlessly claps his hands and jumps up and down even though we need to wait for it to cool down, so he runs back to the couch to wait.

I cut the bread into big pieces and put them into a bowl as I watch my son pick up a fork and devour the first bite.

He closes his eyes and nods his head as I just asked him if it’s good! ..."Mmm hmmm!!" He says with his mouth full! ….

Yummm the best banana bread in the whole wide world- according to my son! 

I’ve changed this recipe over the years and added to it depending on what's in the house, but this is the recipe as of now that I stick with….

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. From our house to yours, taste life!

Peruvian Green Sauce

My husband lost a bet, hahaha this makes me laugh because he hates losing. While he's in the kitchen cooking, I get to kick my feet up and enjoy a delicious dinner!

I wasn’t expecting an amazing dinner this time around. My husband is a great cook, but tonight he outdid himself and made a Peruvian dish with chicken and potatoes, cooked to perfection!

But it wasn’t just the food that was good, it was the sauce!....I could've eaten this sauce as if it was soup!!! Each bite that I took was a mouthful of goodness - the garlic, the cheese, and the cilantro!... all blended together nicely with a touch of lime. Enough lemon juice and salt, all mixed together - it tasted as if there was an explosion in your mouth with each bite. 

Luckily he made extra and I started to put it on everything…I mean everything! ….

This Peruvian green sauce was both spicy, and delicious, a mix of cheese and jalapenos! If you ever need to add some sauce on the side, pour it over some chicken, or need something to dip those potato skins into…

this my friend is your go-to sauce…don't just eat it, devour it!

Onions and Garlic

I wanted something quick I said to myself. I wanted something tasty as my mouth began to water and my stomach told me that I’m hungry…

it’s almost done! I swear sometimes my stomach is like a 4-year-old in a toy store, please be patient.

Today was one of those days, my stomach is ready to eat now! As I already cut up the onions and taken off the top of the garlic.

I generously sprinkled olive oil over them in a pan and then topped it off with salt, paprika, and pepper. While it was baking in the oven, the smell engulfed the kitchen with roasted garlic....amazing!

The pasta is cooked al dente and I’m mixing everything into a bowl for lunch today.

This gluten-free pasta from Barilla is one of my favorites, cooks just right, and is easy to find in grocery stores.

One of my favorite dishes right now. It’s quick enough and super easy to make as I swirl my fork into the pasta and grab both the onions and garlic with every bite.

I love garlic... Bon appetite!
