Jumbo Blueberry Muffins with Orange Pecan Crumble {and Orange Honey Butter}

Oh, look, cupcakes less popular cousin – muffins!  Well, these Jumbo Blueberry Muffins with Orange Pecan Crumble are not your average muffin, that’s for sure!  Just that they have local Newfoundland berries kinda makes them inherently wicked, that’s for sure!  Now, I may be a little biased, but blueberries in Newfoundland are by far the best blueberries found anywhere!  Seriously, though, they are so sweet & concentrated in flavour, they kick any other blueberries’ butt!  Around late Summer/early Fall, people typically go berry picking in Newfoundland.  They are grown wild and you can fill buckets and buckets with these little gems.  I recently got a bunch and couldn’t wait to bake with them (if they lasted that long before I had a chance to do so!).  They are so much tinier than any mass produced/grown ones you may find in the grocery store, but they make up for in their amazing flavour…like little candies!

French Onion Soup {with Bone Marrow Toasts}

I love French Onion Soup.  How could you not?  There’s onions that have been cooked down so they are sweet & delicious, crusty bread on top soaking all that beefy broth & copious amounts of cheese all gooey and melty.  This soup is definitely a meal in itself.  With a nice glass of red wine, you are set!

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.
