Banana Bread

This is the best banana bread recipe ever - so, so good, and very easy - even I managed to make 2 loafs! Oh I added chopped walnuts.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 very ripe bananas
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and powder, salt. In a large bowl cream together eggs and sugar. Stir in mashed bananas, vanilla, oil and cinnamon. Stir in flour mixture, a third at a time, until just combined. Divide batter into two 9x5 loaf pans. Bake for about 1 hour

Yellowtail's Favorite Spot

The bathroom vanity cabinet is his favorite spot. He can spend all day up there. Most times, it's difficult to get him down.

Organic flax plus granola

Good way to start the day - a big bowl of pumpkin organic flax plus granola with blueberries, strawberries, and banana. Yummy.

yelowtail's dinner

Since he discovered and liked corn so much a couple of days ago, we are trying mashed carrots for him tonight for dinner - don't know if he will eat it. I also bought him some broccoli from Whole Foods - maybe we will try that tomorrow.

Kaiju Tote

Forgot to post this yesterday but here it is - my first Kaiju tote for the Rotofogi Toy Karma 2 Art Show in Chicago. So cool especially with the Garamon charm that my Mom helped me make. Keep posted, will have more info about the show next week.

Yellowtail gone wild.

The kids and I worked most of the day in the studio and spent a good amount of time chasing after Yellowtail after he flew out 3 times. He sure loved all the attention.

August Postings.

Since the kids are back for 2 weeks, and I did pretty good for July's food theme, August will just be various summer activities. And of course, I forgot to post yesterday already. Jonathan got a new board from Blue Planet with Kaitlin. She now can use his patched up old board.
