Three Ugly Bananas

What happens when three bananas are ignored for a couple days? Banana bread, that’s what. The uglier the better! No but seriously the best bananas for bread are black.

Hats, Horsies, and Hundreds

What the Brunch?: Quiche Lorraine

My friend Josh (See his post here) and I were talking the other day about how excited we were to move back to school (13 days- not that I’m counting or anything…) and he suggested that we all get together for Sunday Brunches! How adorable! Last year, when we all lived in dorms, eating together […]
