Cooking with Numbers

Ethan is taking a Home Economics class this semester and has been busy measuring and mixing ingredients in the kitchen. It's been great seeing him interested in meals and offering to make some of his "specialties" for us.

This Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips is a new family favorite and tastes all the more better because he made it, all by himself.

Count me in for a tasty slice!! xo
