Carrot Banana Bread

Here is yet another variation on banana bread.  My first reaction to baking with carrots is that vegetables and dessert don’t usually mix.  Then I remember, oh yeah, carrot cake.  It’s delicious.  Somebody somewhere decided that adding carrots to flour and sugar would be good, and…they were right.  Carrot cake is delicious.  And, what could be better than adding in bananas?  The result is a very rich, moist bread (can also be made into muffins).  I also added in some trail mix just to make it interesting.

Here’s the recipe, enjoy!

White Chocolate Brownies

I was curious about what the difference is between a blondie and a brownie because I suppose some people would look at these and call them blondes.  According to Wikipedia a blondie is like a brownie, but with vanilla substituted for the cocoa and contain brown sugar.  So, I don’t think these are truly blondies because they don’t have brown sugar and still contain chocolate.  BUT then you get into the whole controversy about whether or not white chocolate is truly chocolate.  People seem to be divided into two camps on that front.

Quite frankly, I really don’t care what you call them.  They are rich, sweet, and delicious.  I hope you can see past the meddlesome details of semantics and just enjoy making these and eating them.  Here’s the recipe!
