Effortless Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe

  1. Katie says:

    Mmm… This is a weekly treat around my house. My recipe is a bit different but I don’t think you can go wrong. I usually do muffins these days (mostly because I temporarily lost my loaf pan for a while and converted over in the meantime. Note to self: don’t let husband put away dishes). My new fav, though, is using the bundt pan and then glazing with choc ganache. I can still occasionally convince myself that this is an appropriate breakfast, but the little man and big man in my life love it for dessert! Deeeeelish!

      Umm chocolate ganache sounds amazing. I always feel like I’m being healthy eating banana bread even though I literally put an entire bag of chocolate chips.

      Thanks Brenda. I was going to add a picture of Hudson, but some people don’t love all of the baby stuff. Trust me I get emails about it. Next time I will get a pictures of Hudson munching away.

    Hi — I just won the Valentine’s Day office bake-off with your recipe. I did add pineapple to it just to give it a little personal twist. It was a big hit! Thanks for this idea and all the others. Much appreciated!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
