What I Made On My Isolation Vacation

Hi Friends!

I haven't been posting new content for a while (aka 2 years).    It's not because I haven't been in the kitchen, but there's been a lot of life going on and this has always been just for fun. 

And now here we are in the middle of, in the words of all the recent advertisements, unprecedented (or uncertain) times.   Like everyone else, I'm spending a lot more time at home and in the kitchen.   

I've even made the required quarantine banana bread, using my favorite recipe from Cooking Light.

Over the past month of primarily at home life, here's some of the other good stuff coming out of the kitchen - even over those few days where my oven was out of commission (sadness).  I enjoy the challenge of seeing what's in my cabinets and looking for recipes that let me use what I have.  Enjoy!
