Super Simple Sweet & Salty Banana Bread

I love me some banana bread. With nuts-without nuts...it doesn't make a difference to me. I started experimenting with it way back in the beginning of my cheffing days, when I was forced to use boxed mixes. I would always add different syrups and honey's to try and dress up the bland-box flavor. I continued that experimenting into life. The quest for the perfect banana bread. I found it.

Armoire Refaire

I've been off the radar for a couple of weeks. So many projects...so little time. Factor in that it's been either raining or 105 degrees, that time is cut down to itty bitty, sweaty-sized pieces. I'm happy to report that the new A/C is truckin' right along and doing everything the little bit overly confident salesman said it would.

Making Antique Horse Collar Mirror~And Before and After's!

My husband and I had our pictures taken at this old time photo place while we were visiting Pigeon Forge, TN this year. They had this one area set up like an old bath house, complete with a horse collar mirror on the wall. I don't know what it was, but I was in love with that thing. I started thinking that I never come across old horse collars, and where would I ever get one that isn't going to cost an arm and a leg? Well, a week later when we were driving through Georgia on the last leg of our trip, we stopped at this antique place in Augusta. Wouldn't ya know...they had one there. It was fate.
