Since Bastille Day was Monday, I’m sharing a tasty baguette recipe with you today. I was a French major in college, so this holiday is near and dear to my heart. Actually, I’m kind of embarrassed to say that it almost slipped by me. It’s been such a busy summer. We’ve been on the road a

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Since we had a few bananas past their prime today, I decided to make banana bread.  I noticed this recipe in Everyday Food a while ago and wanted to try it, but we didn’t have any oranges at the time.   Strangely enough, oranges are not on my weekly grocery list. Anyways, we were just
