Make & Take: Ice Cream Sundae Kits

On Sunday, my family went out for dinner and I put this fun little ice cream sundae kit together to take along with us! It could not have been easier and the end result was so cute!

Lemon Poppy Seed Scones

I made these scones right when my family got home from vacation - so as much as we were bummed to be home, this sweet treat brightened our spirits! We all had one when they were still warm and they were perfect, but they were just as good after chilling in the fridge over night! I found this recipe on Annie's Noms, you can find it HERE!

Music for Monday: Frank Ocean

Yesterday, in spent the day redecorating around here a little bit! Connected in the Kitchen is still very much a work in progress but I am loving the changes! Today, I'm talking about Frank Ocean! I first heard one of his songs in my grade 11 English class - my favorite English teacher had writing prompts based off songs! Ummm talk about an assignment for me! This is the first Frank Ocean song I heard 5 years ago...

Banana Bread

When I first started a blog, I wrote a list of recipes on a tiny little post-it note that I knew I wanted to share at some point. I started a blog on a major whim, which is so out of character for me. I'm a major planner, so having that little post-it full of recipes settled my mind big time! This is one of the first recipes that I wrote down and I am so excited to be sharing it over a year later!

This is a recipe that my mom has been making for my entire life - I think I was stirring banana bread for her before I could form coherent sentences! It's definitely a favorite of mine because of its familiarity but also because it is so easy to make! In fact, it is so easy that I only had to take 5 pictures of the process! Here is how we make banana bread in my house...
