Arancini with Easy Marinara Sauce

Arancini with Easy Marinara Sauce is quite possibly the best little bite that you could ever put in your mouth.  Arancini are basically made using leftover risotto (is there really such a thing, though, as leftover risotto?), using some additional flavourings like nuts and cheese and binding into a little ball of carby, cheesy, heavenly goodness.  Dip those babies into a super easy marinara sauce and your taste buds will be singing as the skies open up and the angels sing.

Hey everybody!  How’s it going?

So this past weekend I discovered something that I was super excited about.   I found out a way to clean our stainless steel appliances and have them look like new!  What you ask??  Ok, ok.  I know it’s not that exciting.  Now, it’s not like finding a $20 bill in your jacket pocket or realizing you’re down 5 pounds, but it’s the little things, isn’t it?  So, I was always Continue reading

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Who doesn’t love banana bread?  I mean, it’s made with bananas so it’s technically considered a fruit, right?  Fruit is good for you, so that means banana bread is good for you.  Yes, this is my reasoning for having a second piece.

Banana bread usually is usually the result of bananas that are not at their peak.  I recently purchased too many and I had several that were about to walk off the countertop.  For me, that usually means one of two things – banana bread or smoothie.  Banana bread takes slightly more effort, but the results are so much more tastier.  Plus, you get a big hunk-o-banana bread that you can eat throughout the week. Score!

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread is not your average banana bread.  It is a trifecta of awesomeness – chocolate, peanut butter and bananas.  I mean, seriously!  Easy to prep, you just have to have the patience to wait for this baby to bake.  Have your cold glass of milk ready – it’s banana bread’s best friend.
