Recipe of the Month – Banana Peanut Smoothie

I sort of made this recipe up as I went along. I had 2 leftover bananas in the fridge that I really needed to eat before it was too late.
Helpful tip of the day: you can refrigerate bananas that are starting to turn. The peels will turn brown but the bananas will stay fresh for a few more days.

Recipe of the Month – Grilled Goodness

Today was my first technique class of 2015. Held at Williams-Sonoma, the technique classes are free and oh so delicious!

This week’s class was all about the basics of nonstick cookware. While I learned some really great tips about which pans are best for which foods and the differences between nonstick and non nonstick pans, I was mostly looking forward to the eating part of the lesson. I had some yummy scrambled eggs and a delectable bite of banana upside down cake. However, the main dish was just OMGosh good!

This week’s recipe is for Chicken, Mushroom, & Gruyère Grilled Sandwich.
