Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

I’m not a sports person at all. In fact, the only sports players I know are those that used to or are married/dating celebrities, for example: Lamar Odom, Reggie Bush, Kris Humphries, Tony Parker, etc. But the one thing that excites me about the Super Bowl is the opportunity to bake.

This year I made chocolate chip banana bread. I followed this recipe with some modifications:  using wheat flour instead of all purpose, egg whites instead of eggs, and throwing in some chocolate chips for good measure. The end result was delicious.

Tip: Warm up the bread so that the chocolate chips are slightly melting and pair with a hot cup of coffee/hot cocoa! Bliss.

Happy Monday

This was one of those weekends that was defined by food. Whether it was making chocolate banana bread (recipe forthcoming) and salsa to eating to my heart’s content during the Super Bowl (you gotta love leggings). It was amazing – the food, not the game.

My favorite parts were the extended Hunger Games trailer (here) and the commercials of course. Which one was your favorite?

Hope you have a wonderful week!
