Super Yummy Banana Bread

Monday, September 1st, 2008

We had a couple leftover bananas that had gone too brown to eat so I decided to make banana bread today. I searched around for a couple recipes, found a couple online, and then adapted one that I found on SimpleRecipes here. I ended up under cooking the bread and had an entire gooshy mooshy [...]

Tuesday, July 26th, 2005

I had a pretty busy weekend this week. On Friday Lockheed took 80 of the interns to see the San Francisco Giants play the Florida Marlins. I had been to a game on Monday but the Giants lost. The Giants had also lost when I saw them play the Cleveland Indians and I was starting [...]

Honey Glazed Salmon

Wednesday, January 26th, 2005

So Julie asked for the recipe for the honey glazed salmon so here it is. It should be even better if it’s grilled rather than placed in the oven but I will explain how to cook it for cooking in the oven. Adapting it for cooking on the grill is even easier than the following. [...]

Why I have so many problems eating salad

Sunday, August 15th, 2004

So I determined at dinner tonight that my next post was going to be on eating salad. I made steak, fries and salad for dinner tonight. It was very yummy and as usual, my salad consisted of romaine, cucumbers, grape tomatoes and crutons covered with Brianna’s dressing. It’s very yummy. Somehow I manage to make [...]
