As I am in the middle of revision week for my midterm exams I do not have a lot of time to prepare my breakfast. One of my favorite go to recipes, when I have some overripe bananas is banana bread.
It is one of the first things I learned to bake when I was a little girl. I remember my brother hearing about banana bread and his wish to try it. As it is not very common to have or make banana bread in Switzerland we did not have a recipe already in the house.
I researched, came up with a recipe and it has not been changed ever since! It’s so good!
Something I have come to appreciate and like a lot lately is Tahini. It is super fast to make and pretty amazing.
Made from sesame seeds and some olive oil Tahini is a nut butter originated from the Middle Eastern and Eastern cuisine.
Tahini is not only delicious it can also benfit your body quite a bit. Having a lot of calcium and protein it is a great addition for people who do not or hardly eat meat. Furthermore, there are enough fatty healthy acids (Omega 3 and 6) present to make Tahini one of your go to products pretty fast!
Today I made something delicious that originated in France. A galette is a much simpler approach to glazed fruit tarts. Although the term is very wide (some French cafes a galette is a whole wheat crepe) it usually means a free form tart with a crispy dough some fruit and sugar on top. No glazing or crème topping.
Every once in a while I end up with to much fruit. I do not know how it happens but at some point there are just too many and there is no way I can eat them all before they go bad. This happened also last weekend. A look in the fruit basket and I saw that I had to many pears and apples. What to do?
