Cooking with Kathy

Today I decided to be adventurous and bake some banana bread. Virginia decided to be my little helper today in the kitchen also. That means while I baked she went and took all the bowls and tupperware out of the cabinets. Yes we very much so need to get the child proof cabinet locks.

First note about the banana bread recipe and really any recipe is to make sure you have all the ingredients that you need. Hold back the smart comments. So I had to substitute maple syrup for brown sugar. The end result was still great!

Oh also as part of Reiggin's Birthday gift I cooked dinner. Ok some of you may be thinking so is that a present or a punishment haha. I decided to make Garlic Cheese Chicken. The recipe is very similar to another chicken recipe of mine that Reiggin likes so I felt safe trying this one. Instead of bread crumbs I used fried onion sticks. I also switched up some of the spices but not to many. Everything came out great and tasted wonderful. You can never go wrong with cheese and chicken!
