We've been super busy working on Dream Project (Katey more than Sara though) and haven't had a chance to update. Besides DP and homework, we have been going to yoga, taking advantage of the random days of sunshine (yes!) and obviously getting our fair share of Starbucks. We've also watched Pride and Prejudice (the Keira Knightley one, although someone recommended the 6 hour BBC version...) and partied hardxcore for Maximum's birthday. Oh yeah, our friend Jeremy ordered some banana bread with white chocolate chips which was delicious. And most importantly, we are going to do a guest post on Of Cookies and Carrots at some point in the future!

sorry for the crappy phone picture
here's the recipe (from Field of Green cookbook with our modifications): 
• 1 1/2 cups flour
• 1/2 tsp. of salt
• 1 tsp. baking soda
• 10 tbsp. butter, softened
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 1/2 cup brown sugar
• 2 eggs
• 3 or 4 ripe bananas, 1 1/2 cups

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan. Sift flour, salt, baking soda together. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs 1 at a time, beating until mixture is smooth after each addition. Stir in bananas. Add in dry ingredients. If you want to add anything in, do so now. It also helps to coat your addition in some flour so it doesn't fall to the bottom. We put about 1/4 of a bag of white chocolate chips in this loaf (and didn't completely fill the sugar, unfortunately we didn't measure but all we can say is that we went easy on it). 
[The original recipe calls for 1 cups of shredded unsweetened coconut and if you wish to follow the original recipe, mix all but 2 tbsp. into the batter.]
Spread the batter in the pan and bake for 60-70 min. [Sprinkle the bread with remaining coconut halfway through the baking] The bread is done when a skewer inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean and the bread is golden brown.
