Maple banana pizza with ricotta

Happy last week of 2015 everyone! Are you done with the year and ready to move on? Does it make you nervous? Or you don’t care at all? I don’t know where I stand, days go by so quickly it hasn’t hit me yet that I’ll be writing down a different date a week from now.

And that’s what it is, just a date change. A new year can be a new beginning and an intro into something new and exciting, but I’m not good with the resolutions, so for now I think the date change will be the only real difference.

I remember when I was still in school and it always took me about a week to get used to the fact that I needed to write down a new number.

Coconut blueberry oat smoothie

I hope you don’t mind me sharing another breakfast with you, because I just did that, but I really had to show you this coconut blueberry oat smoothie. It’s gotten so warm this week I’m currently skipping the warm oatmeal…

Orange banana bread with rum

I don’t even know where to start, all I want to say is that Fall is amazing! The weather has been so incredible, warm above average for this time of year. I honestly feel guilty if I’m cooped up indoors, instead of spending time out in the sun.

Clearly spending all my time outside isn’t realistic, I have stuff to do, we all do. But it’s hard! The perfect autumnal weather right now is the nature’s equivalent of a plate of fresh-baked, still warm, chocolate chip cookies that are placed on a table in front of you and you can’t have them. You can just watch. But no one can just watch that, right? You have to have at least one. Otherwise that’s just torture and I’m not playing like that.

Crispy waffles + bananas baked in ricotta

I don’t know if it’s all the donuts or the cold outside or if I’m just being hormonal but lately I have been craving bigger breakfasts. Bigger, fatter, sweeter. Remember smoothies? Well, they’re my plan C now. Cereal or porridge make plan B and pancakes or these waffles with bananas are plan A. Who doesn’t love a good waffle on a cold morning?

It actually started the other way around with this recipe. I didn’t originally want waffles, I thought of a topping before I considered them as the base. Syrup is good, but if you can put something better on a waffle, then you should do it. These bananas baked in ricotta are a twist on a recipe I’ve had since 1997. I promise I am not making this up. I once mentioned this already, but I have a notebook from the after-school cooking classes I went to when I was 6 till I was 9 years old. These weren’t professional, they were created by our teacher and just really fun. We all had to pick some after school activities, and unlike singing in the school choir, these cooking classes also taught us all some skills and we often went home with bags of baked goods. […]
