Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Recipe for moist, banana bread with Greek yogurt and milk chocolate chips.

Do you have a "buy nothing" group in your neighborhood? They've become super popular around here and I love my local one. Lots of generous folks and community spirit. So much so that a lovely woman was giving away slices of her homemade banana bread. I didn't have time to grab one but it did start a wicked craving.

S'mores Cupcakes

Recipe for a chocolate cupcake with a graham cracker crust base, topped with marshmallow butter frosting.

A couple of weeks ago I had a wicked craving for a cupcake. Sadly the best cupcake bakery (cupcakery?) in my neighborhood is closed for renovation. So I bought one at another place, not really known for them but, hey, you never know. Yes, yes you do. It did not hit the spot.

Pink Salty Dog Cocktail

Recipe for a vodka cocktail with grapefruit juice, grapefruit soda or beer and served in a salted rim glass.

We're kind of in that shoulder season between all the good winter citrus and all spring fruit. Coming home from the market with a load of beautiful pink grapefruit, I stopped to admire the first flowering tree on my block. A perfect example of where we are right now.
