Flour Bakery's Famous Banana Bread

I love banana bread, especially ones that are crusty yet moist in the middle.  There's nothing like it.  

I saw this recipe online and apparently Chef Chang of Flour Bakery in Boston is famous for her banana bread so I thought it was worth trying.  I had some leftover batter so I made some mini muffins.  Don't they look scrumptious?  :)

Sweet & Savories - Chicago, IL

A friend of mine recommended Sweets & Savories to me awhile back for the Sunday prix fixe menu.  For $14, you get a two course meal that comes with coffee or tea and a plate of baked goods.  It sounded like a great bargain to me so a few of my girlfriends and I planned a Sunday Brunch there recently.  

It's on Fullerton, but the front is very unassuming so it's pretty easy to completely miss it.  I ended up having to drive past it a few times.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

I made these as a side to go with the Chicken Piccata with Pasta dish.  I loved roasted brussels sprouts and I saw these great plump sprouts at the market recently so I couldn't resist.

Chicken Piccata with Pasta

I made this dish for my friend Yeena after she had her baby.  Anyone that is expecting soon, should sign up for MealBaby.  It's a great way to help out new moms.
