Hummus with Olive Turkish Bread [Brunch Edition]

Hello my fellow travellers,

As a part of the brunch series, I’m looking at different foods you can serve that are a bit different than the regular quiche or muffins. Hummus is perfect for such an occasion along with a nice, soft loaf of Olive Turkish bread (bought from Cobs Bakery). The hummus is a great dip for the bread. If you can’t find Turkish bread in your locale, you can either make it at home or find bread from a bakery that is soft, aerated, and slightly chewy in texture. Bakers are your friends, ask them to help you find something similar to Turkish bread.

Very Banana Banana Bread

Hello my fellow travellers,

Today’s recipe was requested by my sister-in-law who had left over ripened bananas. She dropped them off at my house so I could whip up a quick bread. Suffice to say, the house smells amazing after the bread comes out of the oven.

The key is to have very ripe bananas and very soft butter for the recipe. That means leave the butter out the night before if you have to (as long as it won’t melt). Another key factor is to NOT over mix the batter while adding flour otherwise you’ll end up with a brick of bread not a moist loaf of banana goodness.
