I thought the weather finally turned a corner last week when the mercury rose to 87 degrees Fahrenheit. We shut down the furnace …

Banana Pudding

Banana Toffee Pudding

Ever since I had my first bite of banana pudding from the famed Buttercup Bake Shop in NYC, I knew one day I’d have to make it at home. And now, I have.

Bananas and I don’t always agree. The texture leaves much to be desired, and while I do eat them because of …

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

PB and Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Bananas are the sore losers of the fruit bowl in our house. Last ones picked for the team, they wither away on the table, begging for affection that is now denied. There was a time in my 5-year-old’s life when he would couldn’t stop eating bananas, gobbling 3 a day and asking for more. That seems …

Banana Pineapple Bundt Cake with Coconut Rum Glaze

It’s dark these days. Very dark. I wake up before dawn. I leave for work just as the sun is starting to make its way over the hill behind our house. And by the time my work day is complete, it’s dark again. Winter will be upon us soon, though I can feel the oppression …

My kids …

Coconut & Banana + Cream Muffins

More snow. Can you believe it? I can’t remember the last time Connecticut got so much snow in one winter. Not that I dislike winter but unless I’m able to take full advantage of the snow and ski it, I have no use for it. It makes it harder to leave the house between bundling …

Banana Coffee Cake

Banana Coffee Cake

That went fast. Winter break, that is. Just as I was settling into a routine that made me happy, BAM!, time to go back to school. Here comes the end of blissfully baking the day away–and the start of mountains of homework again. What was I thinking?

I could have graduated last semester. I should …

Banana Oatmeal-Nutmeg Scones

Banana-Oatmeal Nutmeg Scones - poet in the pantry

I’m not cut out to be a morning person. I like my late nights, working in the silence of early morning while everyone else slumbers. “Seinfeld” repeats on the TV in the background, snuggled up in my bed, I get a lot more done than I can during the day with the crazy kids running …
