Hello hello! As we head into another weekend, here are some things we're thinking about to make you happy:


- I know this might sound like a platitude, but I have found the true, BEST banana bread recipe. Seriously. The Ultimate Banana Bread from Smitten Kitchen is a hearty, heavy loaf with an insanely crackly top, ridiculous moisture levels, and a  butterscotchy flavor profile. Add chocolate chips if you dare.

- Remember that classic children's book, "Goodnight Moon"? Here's a cool profile on the woman who wrote it.

Bye for now!
