I realize that just a couple of weeks ago I posted a recipe for mini banana chocolate chip muffins. Therefore, this recipe may seem redundant, but I promise it isn’t. The fact is, if you have overripe bananas you have to make banana bread in some way, shape or form. They are too mushy to eat, but just perfect for that baked confection that we thoroughly enjoy at breakfast or any time of day.

All I can say is thank you San Diego! The preliminary numbers suggest that "America's Finest City" is one of the top contenders for most revenue made this past Saturday at the Annual Food Bloggers Bake Sale. As of Monday, we were only a couple hundred dollars behind Atlanta, the largest money maker last year. Marie Tran-McCaslin of Meandering Eats, is our fearless leader and should be very proud of herself.
Money raised goes directly to Share Our Strength. No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day.

I know that brown butter is the "it" ingredient and perhaps a bit over done. However, I couldn’t help myself – mashed potatoes with brown butter and a trio of onions – heaven!
Since these spuds have more butter than I usually put in my regular recipe, I decided to lighten up on some other ingredients. I’ve used low fat/low sodium chicken broth as part of the liquid and removed any extra high fat components such as sour cream, cream and mascarpone.

Therefore, I was extremely happy when I Googled “Black Bottom Parfait” and found not a mention of it on the World Wide Web! This recipe is from my trusted New York Times cookbook – another fantastic retro recipe from Mr. Craig Claiborne. I have found so many classic gems in this book that are completely timeless.

My kids are on spring break! I love these days off because as a family, we are usually very much in need of them. Both of my children are teenagers now and they have very hectic schedules. Their academic load is quite hefty and they both pursue passions for specific sports. My son Jake focuses completely on high school basketball and my daughter Eva plays softball, soccer and field hockey. It’s nice seeing them have basically nothing to do and to sleep in.
