#Monday isn’t so bad when it starts off with warm homemade banana bread 🍴🍞🍌 #breakfast #love #imagreatist #healthy #nutrition #yum
I made this delicious banana bread on Sunday morning. It was chilly, rainy, and the perfect excuse to listen to some classic rock and bake in the kitchen (heaven!). I tweaked my old recipe to try to perfect the measurements/ingredients. The old recipe called for:
This time I used all of the previous, plus 2 dollops (about 2 tbsp) of Organic Vanilla Yogurt and 1/4 cup of water. The previous recipe called for an hour of baking time at 350, while this bread only took about 40 minutes.
The bread came out very dense, filling, and moist! The Vanilla yogurt definitely added more richness and flavor, which complemented the cinnamon. Not to mention added protein and nutrients—essential for a filling breakfast/snack :)
#Dinner with the Fanellis celebrating @melissafanelli graduation from Uconn! @ Terry Tavern #yum #delicious #food @sjf2187
This dinner was absolutely fabulous! I went out to dinner on Saturday night with my boyfriend’s family to celebrate his sister Melissa’s graduation from Uconn. We went to the Tarry Tavern on Main St in Tarry Town, NY.
This restaurant was amazing. It was small, cozy, and had an authentic Italian feel. The decor was inviting, with mahogany wood, white table cloths, and was dimly lit with candles.
Aside from the beautiful accents and great company, the food was to die for. We sipped on Pinot Noir and shared appetizers of gnocci and beets with goat cheese. For my main entree I ordered the Salmon, which came over lentils that were cooked with panchetta, and a dipping sauce of celery root puree. Let me tell you, I don’t throw this around lightly, but this had to have been one of the best entrees I’ve ever had! I was thoroughly stuffed, but continued to eat.. because it was just that good. I honestly took a piece of bread and soaked up the puree!
Oh, and I also tried Duck for the first time that night too! Sam ordered a homemade pasta dish that had a Duck Ragu. It was definitely interesting and full of flavor.
Overall It was a great night, and I would 100% recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a delicious meal; whether for a date night or out with a group!
