Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

Like cheesecake and excuses, this is something I like to make but rarely partake in. I don’t like bananas but my kids (and most of the population) do. The chocolate chips add a little surprise that keeps them coming back for more. This bread tastes even better if stored in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

I'll typically double the recipe and bake a regular size loaf and then a dozen mini loaves. This way there is something for everyone to enjoy together without the risk of the family getting tired of it and wasting half a loaf. And the mini loaves are just the right size for gifting or taking to work/school.

Everyday Italian Bread

This is a basic recipe for making Italian bread that is great for everyday meals. Served warm, it is a perfect addition to a main dish. I’ve also used it for sandwiches and even just to pull apart and spread with butter.

Recipe Notes

I love my bread machine and have no shame in using it to save time making my dough. If you're a purist, mix the dry ingredients together and then add the water and oil. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes.

Place in a clean bowl that has been lightly greased and cover with plastic wrap and a cloth towel for 30-40 minutes. Remove and continue with Baking Preparation.
