I’m not much of a dessert fan but I do enjoy fruit and nut loaves.
These are a couple of my all time favs. One from my cookbook, Not Just for Vegetarians: Cranberry Mandarin Orange Loaf and one from Martha Stewart for one of the best Banana Breads I’ve ever tasted.

First of all, get ready for a big aaaaaahhhhh……
Here’s my big orange guy, looking incredibly handsome and striking a pose for the camera, yesterday……gets me right in the pumper!!!
Speaking of guys I love:
Here’s my Joe, doing his best desert sheik impersonation while he was cooking up lunch for us, also yesterday. The split pea soup was delish, btw!!!
Joe has come a long way from not knowing how to cook such a short time ago. Guess I should say, he had no previous experience cooking!!!
Now, many a day/night, I get to recline on the sofa, book or knit needles in hand while my Joe creates a culinary delight.
He is also a delight, in so many ways and truly, the nicest person I have EVER known!
Love ya, Veggie Guy!!! 🙂
Here’s me and my Joe, out for a stroll in the snow, earlier this week. Better enjoy it while it lasts, the snow melts much too fast here. 😦
Here’s evidence of what appears to be a long-term truce:
Yes, the Mitz still LOVES her sweater/vest!
And finally, what could be better than a beautiful banana loaf to say…….
Yummmm…..and the delish aroma wafting through the air was almost as good as the first bite!!!
‘Nothin’ says luv- in’….. like something from……..’
Have a wonderful week and remember to hug everyone you love. A great way to warm up February.
Sending lots of huggggggs your way……
I love you all too! 🙂
