I don’t remember if I told you guys, but I took a little time off work this month and next. I was originally planning on doing some traveling, but it doesn’t look like I’ll be able to go anywhere too far since my DB has a pretty strict school schedule. Can he be a 3L already so we can travel?

It’s okay, though. I’ve been able to get a lot of Ebaying done. I haven’t Ebayed in months because it’s so time consuming and I’m away from home a lot, but now’s the perfect time to get all of it done.

Not only that, but now I have time to do things that I didn’t have time to before. I can try new things in the kitchen: working with yeast, cooking fish, and my favorite.. making ice cream! My DB’s mom gave me an ice cream maker and I’ve already started brainstorming all the possibilities. I’m currently freezing my bowl now so that I can use it in the machine tomorrow.

You guys will be the first to know on how my first ice cream attempt turns out. Do you have any tried and true recipes that I can add to my list? I have no experience whatsoever when it comes to making ice cream. Actually, I take that back. I think I might have made it in first grade classroom with a ziploc bag and some salt and ice, but that’s a little different.

But banana bread– that’s something I’m used to and have made plenty of times in my life. There are always brown bananas on my counter that are waiting to be used up. If I can’t use them in before they turn to complete mush, I’ll peel, slice, and freeze them to use in smoothies at another time. That way, no banana goes to waste.

This recipe uses greek yogurt to get that moisture everyone craves instead of the usual oil. To me, this bread wasn’t anything special. It was definitely moist, though. It didn’t rise as much as I would have liked and was a little too dense. I’ll have to experiment baking with greek yogurt more often. Maybe I’ll add that to my list for this month, too…

Oh yeah, I got a little fancy (thanks to WordPress)! Now you can print and save recipes from my blog. Hope that helps some of you out!
