when it rains I bake


 lately Minnesota has had some gloomy days- which is okay with me. 
it means that it is socially acceptable to eat massive amounts of soup, coffee, and people don't look at me like I am crazy when I am wearing my hunter boots. :) 
I also love these days because I feel like I can be so productive- the outdoors isn't tempting me to go outside so I can seriously get stuff done (not saying I would like it to stay this way forever but... for a few days I'll take it) and I bake in the masses. This week alone I have made chocolate chip cookies, banana bread, pumpkin bread, cinnamon rolls and caramel apple cookies. not excessive at all ;)
there is something therapeutic when you bake. I just love it :) 

and so here is a little recipe for some banana bread I made the other day!

Psalm 36: 5-9 "You unfailing love, O LORD, is as vast as the heavens; your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the ocean depths. You care for people and animals alike, O LORD. How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All human it finds shelter in the shadows of your wings You feel them from the abundance of your own house, letting them drink from your river of delights. For you are the fountain of life, the light by which we see."


  1. I totally love days where it feels like the best way to spend it is inside baking or drinking coffee or cleaning!!
