With a Twist

I bet you read that title and are expecting a great cocktail recipe to ring in 2013. I do not have a new cocktail recipe for you just yet. What I do have is a new banana bread recipe that will have you slip sliding on discarded banana peels. (I have an image in my head of Curious George flying across floor) This bread is a classic banana bread recipe with a few special twists.

Chocolate Banana Bourbon Bread

See that in the background…that glowing amber goodness? Yes, my friends, a little dash of bourbon was added to this bread. Alongside that were some dark chocolate chips and pecans. Just like that a simple and classic family recipe is transformed into a sassy and sophisticated bread. This recipe is a part of my Sundays with Joy baking group. The recipe can be found in Joy’s cookbook.

I shared this gorgeous bread, along with a side of mimosas, at my recent hair appointment. What do I have to say about that? I say it was a well played move on my part! It felt decadent to sip on mimosas as I was getting de-sparkled. It was a time to relax and to be taken care of. It is time to move ‘take care of thyself’ up on my list of priorities in the coming year ahead.

Cheers to 2013, friends!
