Mini Banana Cupcakes

Look at these little cuties! I haven’t done much baking in the last few months but some very ripe bananas were calling to me so here’s the fruits of my labor…..get it? I made these as a New Year’s Eve treat accompanied by lots of good champagne and great friends. There is no better way to ring in the new year than that.

So since I haven’t done much ‘Sweet’ posting in a very very veeerrrryy long time, it only seems fitting for new years to make a resolution to add a little more sweet to my savory site. Afterall my original slogan for my site was Dash of Savory, Pinch of Sweet.

I dropped the sweet when I realized it really was just a pinch.

So after polishing these off I decided what better way to start the new year than with a diet? Well the diet lasted a day and now I’ve changed that resolution to making a better effort to balance my diet with moderation…..After all, “Everything in moderation, including moderation.”
