Carrot-Zucchini Bread

It has been a while I participated in Home Baker’s Challenge and even this month I would have missed the posting deadline if I hadn’t checked the FB updates. I remember seeing this month’s bakes announcement last month and then completely forgot about it during thew holiday season. Thankfully I remembered about the challenge right on time and made this moist and delicious Carrot-Zucchini bread yesterday. My son does not like carrots and avoids them like plague. Interestingly, I was looking through my blog posts from few years back and I wrote in one of the posts that my son…

Vegan Mango Bread

Blogging Marathon# 47: Week 4/ Day 1 Theme: Bookmarked Recipes Dish: Vegan Mango Bread We are starting our last and final week of blogging marathon for this year today. My theme for this week is ‘Bookmarked Recipes’. I have so many recipes in my bookmarks that it is even impossible to make them all in this life time.

All these recipes are bookmarked all over the place — some on Pinterest, some on Foodgawker, some on…

Applesauce Oatmeal Bread

King Arthur Flour is my go-to site to buy quality baking ingredients and fool-proof baking recipes. I splurge about 2~3 times a year and buy specialty ingredients for baking and cooking. My absolute favorite is their Vermont cheese powder that I use at least once a week to make mac & cheese for my kids. Another one of my favorite pantry ingredient from KAF is their pizza seasoning blend. It gives the homemade pizza that extra oomph and flavor. I get KAF catalog every month and that is one magazine that I almost read from cover-to-cover, but all it has…

Banana Chocolate Swirl Bread

Bananas are probably the most consumed fruit in my household. Even my picky 5 year old eats banana without too much complaining. All the other fruits have to be converted into juices & smoothies for him. But the problem with bananas, that too buying in bulk, is the whole bunch ripens at the same time and all of them go from bright yellow to speckled and then over-ripe in matter of 2 days, especially in the hot weather. Which is why I’m always looking for recipes to use my excess bananas and I have posted quite a few different recipes…
