Every time I go to Pike Place Market I always grab two demi baguettes at Le Panier. They offer authentic French patisserie and I just love their macaroons! Anyway, two demi baguettes are obviously more than enough for my husband and I so I had this half-loaf of bread sitting on the counter waiting to be eaten. I went online and found this recipe for a bread pudding. It did wonders to my 3-day old baguette. Read more…
Bananas are one of those fruits that I grab every time I go to the grocery store every week, and sometimes I just had too much that some of them ripens to the point where you can’t even eat them anymore. One way to not waste your ripe bananas is to make banana bread! I looked online for a simple banana bread recipe and I came across Sugarlaws where she posted this cinnamon honey banana bread. I had all the ingredients in my pantry so I baked away while listening to KEXP. This is one of the best banana breads I’ve ever had! I used the saigon cinnamon which I bough from Marketspice, and the raspberry honey from Moon valley. Both the sweetest of their kind, so I was hoping only for the best results.

It was a fine sunny day in Seattle when I’ve decided to explore Pike Place Market since there is always something interesting to see. I am a big fan of the market and you might see me walking around the maze at least once a week, taking shots and buying local goods. One of my favorite stalls in the market is the Moon Valley Organics – they produce organic body care products using only sustainable and real ingredients. But if you look past their amazing body butters you will find that they also sell one of the best honeys I have ever tried. Personally, I am not a big fan of honeys. My Filipino blood loves to use granulated sugar for achieving sweetness but when I have tried their samples I was blown away.
Oh and I also made this wake-up kebabs that I saw from this recipe book I bought last week. It has under 100 calories per kebab and they are perfect for a healthy side of breakfast. The recipe calls for apples and a watermelon but I only have bananas and strawberries so that’s what I used for this recipe. You can use any fruit you love just make sure you can thread them on a stick.
Fresh fruits ( strawberry, apple, bananas, watermelon ) washed and sliced into bite-sized chunks
1 tbsp orange or lemon juice
2 tsp honey
1. Preheat the broiler to high and line the broiler rack with foil. Brush the fruits with the orange or lemon juice.
2. Thread the fruits onto kebab sticks or presoaked wooden skewers and place on broiler racks.
3. Drizzle with the honey then broil for 5 to 6 minutes, turning them over halfway through cooking. Serve while warm.
