I have mastered the oven!!! If you remember this, I attempted to bake cookies before Christmas, and it was quite unsuccessful. However, I was not deterred, and as I recently was able to find some baking dishes (though they were just aluminum disposable ones), I decided to give it another go. This time I made banana bread, and it turned out beautifully. It may have been some of the best banana bread I have ever made!

I am not sure what will be next on the baking agenda. But, I did receive real measuring cups and spoons from my amazing friend Laura last week. Maybe a pie will be in order...


  1. Laura is amazing - perhaps we can all get together and cook something up when you get home sometime!!!!

  2. Hurray for Banana bread. I hope you get further packages with cooking supplies in them. (Hint, hint. Love, Mom

  3. that looks delicious :) huzzah!

  4. I know the true joy that comes from success in cooking/ baking on this side of the world! My mom actually mailed me some of those foil pans so I can make some meals when the weather dips below 90 and it's cool enough (ha) to use my stove, then freeze them for later. They're wonderful!

    Good job, and good luck trying out more recipes! :)
