When summer is over we will dream of spring..

Well I had plans of making the fudgy wudgy blueberry brownies.. but after looking in the fridge this morning, I noticed that all of the "grabbing a few" blueberries has really added up. Oh well, I like them on their own anyway. :)

However, I did make the Blueberry Corn Pancakes from Veganomicon the other day. What a good idea,Bianca. They came out really well, but I think I've decided that fruit in my foods probably isn't my favorite combo. But the cornmeal pancake part of it was really delicious!



We also had two bananas that were really really ripe, and I'm not a fan of eating really ripe bananas..so I figured banana bread was in the making. I was going to add blueberries to it, just because we had them, but stuck with just banana. I used the Lower Fat Banana Bread recipe from Veganomicon(yes, i really need a new cookbook because all my recipes are coming from there lately haha but its okay because they're great). The bread itself came out really good, but it was much less sweet than another banana bread that I had made before. It tasted really awesome with peanut butter on top though.. my two favorites = banana & peanut butter.





Well off to enjoy my day. I'm attempting to find stuff to decorate my new room when I move back to Philly next month.. but I have to many ideas that it's getting a bit hard to really narrow down which ones I want to do! I love decorating though, so it's fun. :)

This is just another sign that I need to make those pancakes. Yum!

I love the V'con banana bread, and I always add chocolate chips to it. Deliciousness!

Yea for blueberry corn pancakes! Aren't they awesome? I love the combo of corn and lemon and berries, and I like how the little berries burst on the stovetop while you're cooking...I still haven't tried that banana bread. I don't know what I'm waiting for.

You have me craving pancakes now...I think I know what I'll be making for breakfast one day this week :0) I've been thinking about getting a new vegan cookbook, so maybe v'con is the way to go! Banana bread always makes my whole house smell so good!

And now I really want some banana bread... I need to get my butt over to the store and buy some bananas.

Those pancakes look great.. but i agree Id rather eat my fruit fresh from the fridge then baking or cooking them.. but they look great non the less!

that bread looks super moist. I do not really like sweet so this would be perfect for me. You know what? I cannot eat a ripe banana for the life of me. I would have this gag reflex but, put it in a cake and I would eat it
