It’s yet another cold Sunday winter morning, so what better to do, than bake?
There is so much excitement of the 2014 Olympics that began on Thursday in Sochi. So far Canada has received 1 Gold, 1 Silver, and 1 Bronze medals. In the first opening days they have already made our country proud. The opening ceremonies took place on Friday at 11 a.m. unfortunately I was unable to watch at that time, so I awaited the rerun that took place on Friday evening. I thought the ceremony was quite the spectacle. It took us through Russia’s history, including the alphabet, that mentioned a historical moment for each letter. Following that we were shown the little 9 year old girl who would take the audience through the story. She was elevated into the air and suspended while floats demonstrating the country past her by. Following that was the grand entrance of all of the athletes, Canada’s uniforms were amazing, I thought they were truly Canadian, and really made the country stand out. Every athlete was wearing their Canada hat, it was really neat to see them walking in all in uniform. So excited to watch the rest of the games. Go Canada Go!
In lieu of all the events on during the day, I was tied to the TV so I felt it was only necessary to do some baking at the same time. I found this recipe for Gluten-Free Banana Bread on Confessions of a Gluten Free Mom it caught my eye for two reasons. 1. It looked extremely easy and 1. It was also sugar free, how could I go wrong?
This bread was delicious. I could not have picked a better recipe. It was super moist and was unbelievably yummy. It is the perfect snack and it doesn’t make you feel guilty. I will admit I am a culprit of craving a sweet snack after dinner, and this recipe was the perfect match. I will definitely be making this again.
p.s. try warming the bread up before you eat it, you can thank me later.
