Banana Bread French Toast with Carmelized Bananas and Candied Pecans.
i needed as many banana peels as possible for my 3DD final project,so i baked a lot of banana bread.
saved some,let it get stale,and made french toast.so amazing.how do you make banana bread even better?fry it with a lot of sugar,nuts,maple syrup,and more bananas-DUH.

super moist from the strawberries,but delightfully crunchy from the almonds.heck yes.
two ways to enjoy:
with latte,from stumptown for breakfast.
slathered with peanut butter.zomg.

i'm so glad strawberries are at the farmer's market(and everywhere else...)now.local,ripe strawberries are amazing,bananas are amazing,and oh yeah,maybe flaky pastry is,too.
Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars.
with (speaking of!)fresh strawberries and strawberry jelly.
these are ridiculous.fudgy,rich,pb blondies and thick ooey fruit swirl.often i wonder how a pb&j can be improved on..oh wait...
and there's been quite a few special baking orders....

Cherry Pretzel Danishes.
when i was asked to make these at first,i thought it sounded crazy.
then i tried the baker's of the baker's dozen...

deliciously bean-y.really.i mean,c'mon...it's bean flavoured!

sweet corn and chocolate twist.
like chocolate chips in popcorn.but cold.i swear.

end of ice cream-y treats.
and here's some delicious-ness,eaten out,that...
a)wasn't my baking
b)wasn't from lula's
