This easy banana bread recipe is quick to prepare, and everyone always comes back for seconds!
I only had 2 bananas, so I added about half a can of peaches and skipped the melted butter. Works for me.
Cakey on the outside and fudgy in the middle, this easy brownie recipe really is the best! Done in an hour.
I’m not really a “purse” person, I only have 1 (ish) and I often leave the house without it. But, I do have bags
Sparked by a recent discussion on carry-ons for air travel, here’s what I use… for now…
This duffel is very roomy, and I’ve had no trouble getting it in the overhead bin. That said, it’s usually not filled to capacity, so it’s pretty squishy. The shoulder strap can be tucked away so it’s not a snag risk if it has to be checked. Plus, the Del Día model comes in one-of-a-kind color combos, so it’s easy to spot at the baggage carousel. Has a laptop pocket, but I’m a little weary in the duffel-context.
Downside: if you’re stuck hauling it for a while, it can get a little cumbersome.
Mine is a little older than the one pictured. This one isn’t quite as roomy, but looks nice. I do wish mine had some side pockets though. Again, fits just fine into overhead compartments, and both the shoulder straps and hip belt are stowable if you need to check the bag. On that note, the straps do make it easier to carry than the duffel. Additional handles make it easy to carry like a duffel if the straps are tucked away.
I think this laptop bag looks really nice. This has been my go-to for maybe a year (I’m bad with time). This and the Cotopaxi duffel were my last travel companions. The crossed-shoulder straps was a little odd, but worked fine.
This is new to my collection, but I’m looking forward to a backpack-carry for my laptop.
I’ve also got 3 other messenger bags that rotate in and out if there are particular needs. As well as a some small daypacks like the Cotopaxi Luzon 18L Daypack, which stuffs down okay in case I end up with extra souvenirs.
My CamelBak Fourteener accompanied me to Iceland last year, and I loved having a small, sturdy, secure (as in not falling off my shoulders) bag available for the bit of adventuring I did.
I have an Osprey Kyte backpacking pack, but I hesitate to take it on a flight in case it has to be checked – way too many loose straps that I fear would get in the way.
I only have one rolling bag, and it’s a giant Dakine Split Roller I’ve only used it a couple times since it’s so big. Right now, I think it’s just storing clothes in the closet.
This recipe is served as a starter to each dinner table at Kindred Restaurant in Davidson, North Carolina. But the dough doesn’t stop there. It can be used as sandwich bread, French toast, burger buns, doughnuts, and more. This is a bread that merges utility and taste, seamlessly.
