The macadamia theme continues this week! If you scroll down a little you'll see that my last recipe was inspired by this creamy, crispy nut, and this week is no different. Now, where did I leave that G clamp?
I haven't made a banana loaf in a long time, which is ironic because these days there is almost always a bunch of bananas in my fruit basket. They are a favourite of my daughters and something I know she will always eat ... so I like to have them around as back-up for those teething days when she refuses all other food. Needless to say the bananas are not usually around long enough to become overripe! But if you happen to find yourself in this situation then this recipe is a great way to use them up.
I just had to find time in my crazy Halloween schedule to get this recipe posted. Our witch themed party inspired me to transform a chocolate dipped caramel apple into a cauldron complete with flames and bubbling brew made out of modeling chocolate. I made my own caramel apples and pushed the stick into the apple at an angle so that it would look like a large spoon stirring the cauldron. I am very pleased with how the final cauldron turned out even though I know I could have made them even more elaborate by sculpting some ingredients for in the pot, like eye of newt, and wing of bat, but my time is limited right now. My list of things to do before our party doesn’t seem to be getting any shorter (don’t know how that is possible, but it sure seems to be the case), so I have to get back to work. Enjoy the recipe.
