    Apricot Compote

    My dear friend, Sean, gave me some apricots out of the rows upon rows she had on her kitchen counter—and so I used them to make this simple compote. The photo shows the apricots as they just began to cook. The final product is a happy orange slush!

    Vegan Baked Apples

    Banana Bread

    Although I’ve listed the chocolate chips as an optional ingredient, I personally consider it a core ingredient in banana bread. Those little melty chocolate spots within the sweet banana bread add even more joy to tastebuds!
