Banana-nut Bread

A few nights ago I wanted to use up some ripe bananas and didn't feel like using our recipes for banana oatmeal muffins or banana chip muffins. So I found this recipe for banana-nut bread on Epicurious.


Old-Fashioned Gingerbread

This weekend I made a simple old-fashioned gingerbread from a recent issue of Gourmet. It turned out very moist, with a rich molasses flavour.

Because I'm a ginger fanatic, I added about 1/2 cup diced crystallized ginger to the batter. I highly recommend it--I don't think I would make it without the extra ginger! Although I served it with vanilla gelato from Mario's, next time I might drizzle it with a lemon glaze.

Lemongrass Pork

Whenever we go to Vietnamese restaurants, one of our favourite dishes is lemongrass pork or lemongrass chicken. We love the gentle citrus flavour that lemongrass imparts on the meat. Here's our version.

Instead of pork you can substitute chicken legs and thighs, ensuring that it's cooked thoroughly. You can also use thinly sliced beef for the skewers.


Chocolate Macaroons

Every month I whip up some kind of chocolate treat for Roland. This month's chocolate fix is chocolate macaroons.

For this recipe you can use any texture of coconut as long as it's unsweetened. I like using long thread coconut, but medium would also work well.
