Back in November of this year, I wrote a post about Banana Bread, a Spoon and Some Bourbon and probably the best recipe I found for it. It called for Bourbon, an ingredient I didn’t have on hand, nor did I keep it in the house at the time. I made it without and it was delicious. But I have some now, some Bourbon and last week I baked a couple of mini loaves with it and it’s good. The banana flavor is more concentrated, more caramel-y. And, this may be the Bourbon talking, but more in love with this recipe am I.
problem opportunity. I love to bake. Why? For the good, good smells it puts in my house. Aromas that wipe out, if only momentarily, the stink of football equipment and teenage sneakers. For the meditative quality–I cannot talk to /think about you, this or that because I’m measuring, kneading, counting, and God help me–figuring out some stuff that looks a lot like math in my head–temperatures, timing, doubling and what not.
For the challenge of producing something that will take me back to the comforts of my mother’s kitchen. But baking a couple times a week means indulging in too much of a good thing and therein lies the
problem opportunity to give it away. And so in a moment of enlightenment (probably from all that baking meditation I’ve done) I figure that I need to spread the love –give half of everything I bake away.
But I can’t do it alone and I need you to write to me and tell me who could use a little something sweet in their day. So here’s my thought. I’ll bake and then post the offering on The Little Blue Apron’s Facebook page. You private message me (first “Like” my page to be sure to get my updates) with your top pick of who needs a sweet pick-me-up and I’ll deliver it before 3pm that day with a note from you (on a little birdie note card) unless you prefer to remain anonymous.
Here’s what happiness looked like last week.
That’s all. That’s One Love y’all.
