Better than cranberry-banana loaf? Hint: HDR

Not possible, I would answer, that is, until recently. I’ve always enjoyed the tartness of cranberries contrasted with the sweetness of banana bread. That’s why, since I’ve discovered putting cranberries instead of chocolate chips in my banana bread, I’ve never looked back.

UNTIL I discovered crowberries (sometimes called mossberries). So, what does the crowberry have that the cranberry doesn’t? Texture

It was already more than half gone when I took this photo. In the Yukon, cranberry picking is a August-September ritual, and I usually pick enough to last me the year. However, this year I was a wee busy with other things, even better than a crowberry-banana loaf.

Welcome to the world my little sweetness

After lots of hard work, Mommy and Baby take a nap.

HDR was born on June 16th, 2012.

After just two months, his personality is already shining through:

Although we regularly put him in front of the mirror, this was the first time HDR actually discovers his reflection (at 4 1/2 months):


Oozing cuteness!

Ready for a ride!

So there you have it! You have been photo-blasted with cuteness and sweetness, far better than a cranberry-banana loaf.

    Thanks for the invitation Mrs. D. I am off this year on maternity leave; perhaps next year?

    Ha Ha! this is one of the spam comments I received on this post:
    This recipe is amzaing, but only if you add to it. It’s great for experimenting with and can be made for anyone to like. The first time I made it with my boyfriend it was really bland and I thought I did something wrong. I ended up adding a lot more cheese, salt, and sour cream to make it flavorful. But this recipe is definately worth keeping.
    Adding cheese and sour cream to banana bread huh?
