Reminder, I am from Indiana, a neighboring state to Ohio. Ironically, when I was little, I never once remember hearing the word “buckeye.” You’d think that since I was neighbors with the “Buckeye State,” it would’ve been talked about at some point. But no, my first encounter was when I was at my internship at the University of Massachusetts. That’s when I fell in love with buckeyes.
Sometimes cake needs to happen, right? For one reason or another, I always find myself making cake. This Banana Coconut Bundt Cake has a story all it’s own. Perhaps not a riveting story, but a story nonetheless. Let me take you on a journey, a journey about how bananas and coconut became a bundt cake.
I made something fancy for you. Something you’d find on the menu at a bistro. A French bistro. The kind with wrought iron tables set with fine china. The kind where you see (and yearn to be the) people sipping rosé and wearing dark sunglasses and white linen pants. I’ve never been to France, but this is how I imagine every bistro there. Super cool without even trying. Kind of like this tuna salad, super cool without even trying!
When I’m hankering for something sweet, I turn to my tried and true recipe for Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.
After years of eating store-bought cookies, I have officially decided “no more!” In fact, I’m not even tempted to go down the cookie aisle in the grocery store anymore. Really, I’m not!
