There is a blogger/ baker of mine I can’t get enough of, Joy the Baker. Everything I have made from her blog has been delicious. I am talking about not one thing didn’t taste good.
Sidenote: Let me talk about the one time I made her Double Chocolate Indoor Smores. Let me repeat… her DOUBLE CHOCOLATE INDOOR SMORES! They took patience, but were one of the best things I have ever eaten. Just take a look!

The recipe for tonight’s dinner party with my friends came from an inspiration I always have from bananas: I don’t like them. In fact, I buy bananas, collect bananas, etc all things bananas and they always wind up doing one thing in my apartment. Rot. So I make banana bread.
I have a recipe from my mother for banana bread that I love. But seeing as I haven’t tried Joy’s Peanut Butter Banana Bread, and I am working out today, I thought I would give it a try.
As I like a little more butter in my bread, this recipe below is an adaptation of Joy’s. Although, by all means try hers. She has never disappointed me.
1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce (keeps it moist)
Now as you have notices on mine, there is chocolate?? The oother day, as a thank you for helping him out with something, a client of mine sent me 8, 8oz bags of chocolate from his company in Hawaii… EIGHT BAGS!!!
I love the combination of chocolate with this, so I crumbled some chunks of the Macadamian nut chocolate on top. You can always get creative with your recipes. I made this for a dinner party last night and it was a smashing success. Hanging out with friends, drinking wine, and eating great food is one of my favorite things to do.
