Chocolate Chip & Walnut Banana Muffins

On Friday, there was a sign next to a plate of overripe¬†bananas that said, “For Banana Bread” on it. I wasn’t sure if it was a suggestion, or a claim, so I added my own post-it saying if someone was looking for offers that I could take care of it, and the original writer found […]

Orange-scented Strawberry Pie

This really is the most accurate title for this pie, because Strawberry Orange seemed a bit over-exaggerated since I only used a bit of orange zest. The original intention had been to make a Strawberry Rhubarb pie, but I guess rhubarb isn’t in season since I could find it neither fresh nor frozen in 3 […]
