These days, for some strange reason, I have been craving chocolate like never before. Maybe I am just trying to find energy in all the possible places. Maybe January does this to me. Maybe it’s just hormones that are playing games with me these days (8 months preggers, have I mentioned? Oh, yes… Sorry for being so quiet about it for so long.). Well, who knows… Maybe it’s all combined.
So, given the fact stated above, I knew my fate was sealed the moment I saw a recipe for Double Chocolate Banana Bread.
Double Chocolate Banana Bread?
Can a recipe possibly sound any more tempting and delicious?
Without any hesitation I gave this thing a try and what I realized was that I have never ever tasted a banana bread so good and my place has never been filled with a better scent than the one that was coming out of the oven while this chocolatey miracle was baking. Absolutely heartwarmingly amazing!
This recipe is really gorgeous and if you are into chocolate, you must, must, must give it a try…
I am stopping by to show you my newest project, the thing that has been keeping me busy for the past few days. It’s baby slippers, designed to fit little feet from 0 to 3 months.
As you can see, I made many. Especially because they are so easy to whip up. And once I made a pair in one color combination, another one popped up in my mind immediately so I just had give that one a try as well. To my astonishment, this process led me to 12 pairs altogether. Haha. I love them all.
If you’d like to make these crocheted slippers too, you can find all the necessary details and step-by-step pictures in my pattern shops here or here.
And here are a few more pictures I took for the inspiration…
I have to admit, smoothies are one of my most favorite drinks in the whole wide world. They are simply delicious, nourishing and with almost endless combinations of ingredients that can be used to make them, they are always a lot of fun to prepare and serve.
Today, I have a yummy smoothie idea for you. I tried it and loved it to bits. It’s a vanilla date smoothie, a perfect way to sweeten up your life.
The preparation is beyond easy. You only need 5 simple ingredients, which you blend, blend, blend until you reach a thick and smooth consistency. And that’s it.
