After a wonderful date night last night munching on delicious Indian food (Dal Makhni is my new favorite!) and seeing the controversial Black Swan… look what we woke up to this morning 😀

Winter Wonderland.

But not for long…

Would you even believe me if I told you that by lunch time it looked like this?!

I’m not even kidding.

Gotta love Virginia weather!

At least Lucy Dog got to enjoy it a little bit.

Looks like someone went rolling around in the snow today didn’t they?!?! Lookin’ pretty guilty there, mmmm hmmmm 😛

Well all this snow definitely got me in the mood to get to baking.

Snow = baking.  Why is that?

I decided that it was time for a kitchen baking experiment (scary!), but not just any kitchen baking experiment.  One made using one of my favorite products ever… Cho Cho Chobani!

That’s right… this morning’s adventure ended in:

Strawberry Cho-Nana Cake Bread!

This recipe has 5 ingredients.  Yes, 5.

The flavor turned out spot-on, “freakin delicious” as The Man put it haha.

The bread was very dense & moist, which is why I coined it “cake bread” because it reminded me of a pound cake with it’s somewhat spongy texture. 

Next time around I think I need to increase the baking powder to increase the “fluffiness” if I’m going for more of a “bread-like” consistency <—- thoughts?

Simply mash the banana.

Stir in your yogurt.

Then the eggs.

Fold in the flour and baking powder.

And into a baking pan (w/ cooking spray) it goes.

350F for about 40 minutes (or until a toothpick comes out clean) and you are ready!

Yummmmmmmmm!

Served warm this goes wonderfully with your morning coffee.  At least that’s what I’m told.

I thought it went just perfectly with a scoop of ice cream, but who am I to say? 😉

So today I’m teaching lil’ sis how to make pasta fagioli – so excited that she wants to start learning how to cook!  Then we’re having the rest of the Fanatic Fam over for a big family dinner.  I haven’t seen them since they left on their Caribbean vacation so I’m really looking forward to it!

Just out of curiousity, what’s your favorite kind of yogurt??
