Chocolate chunk banana bread

I’ve been wondering what to bake next for the last two days and I finally decided on this chocolate chunk banana bread. I’m very happy with how it turned out so I’m sharing it with you too. Bananas have always been a favorite of mine. I have used them in baked goods only a few times, however. This bread here is my biggest success so far.

Peach popsicles

Hi! How is June going for you so far? It’s super hot here and of course, I needed something refreshing. Since it’s ice cream and popsicle season  I opted to make some peach popsicles. I still haven’t bought molds and as you can see I used cups to make them. They are not that pretty this way, but they sure are tasty.

Apricot and orange cake

The summer is here and the days are getting hotter. Hopefully, the weather won’t take a weird turn again. I made this apricot and orange cake yesterday and it was delicious. Apricots are in season now so if you like them, you should give it a try. It’s pretty easy to make and it tastes great.

Simple sandwich cookies

I didn’t do much baking this past week. Sometimes I just can’t decide what I want to make (or eat). Finally, I made these cookies since I really wanted something sweet. I couldn’t come up with a better name than “simple sandwich cookies” because that’s just what they are – quite plain but still tasty, at least for me. I had a small jar of marmalade from our neighbor which worked perfectly here.

Homemade tortillas

I’m back after another short break. This time with some homemade tortillas. Do you make your own tortillas? Is it too much of a bother? I haven’t made any in a really long time. For awhile I was very much into them, well more like into the tortilla chips. I love all sorts of crunchy snacks and this one is seriously addictive. Making your own tortillas and tortilla chips at home is really easy so if you ever feel like it, give it a try.

Hello! I hope you all had a fun weekend with good weather. It wasn’t here. You know how much I like to complain about it :). Leaving that aside, I finally made the cheesecake that has been on my mind for the last few days. I have to say, it didn’t go exactly as I had planned.

Chocolate truffles

So I wanted some sort of sweet treat, something chocolatey. Not a cake or a cookie, something else. And what can be better than a decadent chocolate truffle? I made them yesterday and I’ve been thinking all day today about the other flavors that I’m going to try. Because I seriously need to make them more often!

Lemon granita

May is here! Can you believe that the fifth month of the year has started? I certainly can’t. I feel like time is passing way too fast. After a relatively cold week, I was hoping that the new one will be much warmer. That’s why I made this lemon granita. Today was pretty windy, but the next few days should finally get warm.

Dinner rolls

How are you doing? Is it getting really hot where you live? It is here, not that I’m complaining. It’s much better than being cold. I’m eating lots of ice cream and regretting the fact that I don’t have an ice cream maker at home. But before we get to the frozen treats, here are some dinner rolls. Not very exciting I know, but I think they turned out pretty nice.
