Banana Banana Bread
The densest and moistest banana bread I've made! I used six large overripe bananas that were more black than yellow. I also added a teaspoon of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, a pinch of cloves, and a handful of walnuts. Made such a difference. Next time I might substitute the butter with unsweetened applesauce. Oh, and after an hour of baking at 350, I turned the temperature down to 300 and baked for 15 more minutes. I thought the top was over-browning, but it tastes moist and delicious today.

Sesame Snap Peas
I omitted the chili oil because I don't like spicy food- but crisp and excellent!
