How was everyone`s weekend? If you live in America, hopefully, you had a good weekend celebrating the 4th. If you were lucky, you even got a 3 day weekend! 🙂
I`ve been waiting for last weekend to come for awhile. Since my sisters are all over the place, it`s hard to get all our schedules to match as a family. This is the sad truth as we grow older. This past weekend, we were all able to be together and visit some family in Arizona, so I was happy we could all hang out. In all my years of living, my family has never set off fireworks but, this weekend we were able to for the first time! I got some nice pictures, too! 🙂 Also, I was eating all sorts of delicious foods last week because I was trying to take my sister to all these must-eats places! What, summer beach body?!!
Okay, let`s talk about this totally awesome banana bread. You might not be intrigued since banana bread is pretty “ordinary” compared to other fancier desserts. Not to mention that everyone has their own collection of banana bread recipes. But first, look at these pictures and tell me you`ll say no to a slice of this. Can`t? Thought so. 😉
It`s summer. So, why not incorporate some strawberries? ROASTED strawberries. Total yum. Your entire house will smell amazing. Roasted strawberries should be a hand soup scent or something. I was sniffing up the smell like a maniac! Of course, there`s brown butter involved too, since I`m a brown butter fanatic. You can imagine the crazy delicious aroma of this banana bread. I mean, you have roasted strawberries, brown butter, and banana together. I like using yogurt in quick bread recipes because it makes the bread moist, soft, and gives a little tang. And, as always, I top the banana bread with a wonderful streusel and additional banana slices on top.
On a quick side note, sorry for being a little inactive in the blogosphere lately. I`ve been “trying” to be a little healthier by not baking so much. Thus, I had to lessen my posts to have enough content to share weekly with you all. I should`ve baked anyways. I have been going out for desserts, like ice cream, so much anyways! Haha~ 😛 I`m always trying to catch up on reading my blogs once in awhile, when I find time. Sorry, if you see me comment on your blog like 5x in a row!
Alright, crazy awesome banana bread time! Go, go! 🙂
