Tidbits from my Week

I think I need to start naming my weekly round-up posts "What I Ate" because that's pretty much the primary focus each week: what I ate, baked, cooked, and sipped. Here goes another one!

My new favorite snack: peanut butter and blackberry preserves with sliced banana on a graham cracker!

Hibiscus Pina Colada tea makes studying just a little bit easier. 

Absolutely delicious Chocolate Cinnamon Banana Cake from GirliChef. Light and flavorful, this is one of the best
banana breads I've made in a while - and I love me some banana bread! You've got to try this recipe!

Sky blue sky against one of my favorite buildings in Baltimore. I've been trying to get a
good photo of it for some time now and snapped this from my car - not quite what
I envisioned but I'm getting closer.

Stewed cinnamon apples for breakfast. A great way to use up all those about-to-turn apples! 

I also really appreciated this guest post from Lynn over at Hearted Girl on Vintch. Her five things list is about life in general but she's got some great ideas to share. I particularly liked her thoughts on the trappings of comparison. A great post to visit for some motivation or a pick-me-up!

And finally, I've got a few musical tidbits to add to the mix. Though I'm not usually a bit fan of Brett Dennen, I love his new single "Sydney I'll Come Running." It's peppy and poppy and perfect for wishing away the cold winter days!

If you've seen Blue Valentine, you'll probably recognize "You and Me" from Penny & the Quarters. Though the relationship in the film isn't exactly ideal or even overly romantic, this 70's love song which is featured throughout is perfect background music to an intimate dinner for the upcoming holiday!


  1. I want to see blue valentine sooo bad! and ohmygosh I love that song! =)

    Happy early valentines day!

  2. I love these quick snacks. I also love pairing brie cheese, sliced bananas, honey on a cracker.

  3. Everything looks so good! I'm totally digging on that mug that your tea is in, though...so groovy...love it!
