Sundays with Joy/Mommom’s Chocolate Bourbon Spiked Banana Bread

Bourbon Spiked Banana Bread--NerdyBaker

See, only a couple of days late. Okay, a week and a couple of days.

This bread was quite lovely. I had a few members of my family obsessed with it. Once I knew I wouldn’t get around to photographing it till things around here calmed down, I had to put it away for fear I wouldn’t have any left to take pictures of. The bourbon is spectacular in this, bringing out the flavor of not only the chocolate chips but the banana as well. As always please buy Joy’s mouth watering cookbook for the recipe!

The recipe called for walnuts but I used pecans because that was all I had.

I want to talk about the year to come. In so far as posts go, with the holidays being over as well as my son’s birthday party I should be getting back to a regular schedule starting with this coming Sundays with Joy. I may even sneak a post in before then. Speaking of Sundays with Joy, we decided to stay on our current schedule of posting every other week that we began during the holidays. I have vowed to stop being afraid of some of my own ideas and instead of just letting them pile up to just try and go for it. So I don’t see any problem with me being able to keep a two post a week schedule (unless I become the queen of baking fails). I know others post LOTS more but I just gotta do what I can do. Also, coming up soon this year will be another post on Gallifrey One! My daughter, niece, and I are going for two days this year as opposed to only the six hours I got to spend there last year. I am so excited! I am going to take lots of pictures and meet tons more people that also love the Doctor.

Speaking of the Doctor, let’s move on to some GeekyLinks. Here are Top 10 Theories About the New Doctor Who Companion and although I don’t agree wholly with any of them I thought two or three were on the right track. What I found more interesting, though, were some ideas thrown around in Episode 105 of the Traveling the Vortex podcast where one of the guys had a theory that through no fault of her own that Oswin may have dubious origins and I couldn’t agree more. We shall see…but unfortunately not until April. Oh, and yes, I do recommend that podcast. I was listening to another Doctor Who podcast but it just wasn’t for me. This one is WAY more up my ally. There is more structure, I am a sucker for fan feedback, and I always appreciate when the hosts let a bit of their lives spill over. I really enjoy it. I need to catch up on episodes I missed!
