Fresh Snow




 
 
 
 

 
 
We awoke to a cold snowy day and I spent most of the day inside. I completed a custom order of my heart felt ornaments and with a little help from Jimmy, my Burmese cat, prepared them, and some other items, for shipping.
The afternoon was spent sewing, working on some new zip pouches. It's time to restock the shop after the holidays.
The daylight ended with a beautiful pink and lavender sunset.

Good Cheer

 


 
 
 
 
 

 

 
Our house looks festive inside and out. The gifts have been wrapped and the cookies have been baked. I have four days off in a row this week and I'm so looking forward to enjoying some good holiday cheer! We will be relaxing and enjoying good food with friends and family, watching a few Christmas show classics, maybe even go to see a new movie.
Much love and good cheer to all this holiday season!

A New Favorite


 
This is our new favorite banana bread recipe.
I found it on the Martha Stewart website.
It's quick and easy to make and the addition of sour cream makes it nice and moist. Makes 1 loaf.

Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature, plus more for pan
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup mashed very ripe bananas
    • 1/2 cup sour cream
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a 9-by-5-by-3-inch loaf pan; set aside. In an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, and beat to incorporate.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the butter mixture, and mix until just combined. Add bananas, sour cream, and vanilla; mix to combine. Stir in nuts, and pour into prepared pan.
  3. Bake until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Let rest in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool.
