is there anything cream cheese doesn’t make better?

if so, i haven’t found it.

i failed yet again to eat all the bananas before they started to turn brown. but i have been getting restless with banana muffins and banana bread. the crumb topping helped with the last batch of muffins, but it wasn’t too long ago that i made those. i had some cream cheese that i needed to use so off to the googles i went; i figured there must be a recipe for banana bread with cream cheese filling, right? well, what i found instead was a recipe for banana bread with cream cheese mixed right into the batter. that seemed easier than messing with a filling (especially for weeknight baking), so i decided to give it a whirl.

yum! i prefer this to regular banana bread, which is just a touch too banana-y for my liking. the texture of this is also awesome – so creamy and soft! i just ate the end slice and even that was awesome! officially added to the repertoire (much to the dismay of the fella, who hates anything banana).


About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
