Easy favorite – Banana bread

I just realised some time ago, that I absolutely LOVE baking and especially making cakes. But you know what? I actually don´t enjoy eating them that much anymore. I can´t even tell when this has changed, and even I always taste what I make, it is nowadays more to figure out what to change to make it even better. However every now and then I do want to have something nice with my coffee, and this easy banana bread has been a favourite for some time now. I have been posting on my Instagram so many banana bread photos, that I decided it is time to share the recipe here also. Anyone else crazy about banana bread?

I usually share here only my own original recipes, but this time I can´t take the credits for this deliciousness. The original recipe for this banana bread is from AMAZING Tuulia blog, which I advise you to go and check out asap. I have done few small changes to the original recipe, as I always try to use what I have at home, and not go and buy all in the recipe. I actually do a lot improvising when I cook, but as the original recipe for this one was so good, I haven´t felt the need to change it a lot. And what I love about this recipe, is that it is super easy, not too sweet, it is “healthy” (well healthier than many things), and also gluten and dairy free. Perfect snack, breakfast or little sweet things with your coffee. Or you disagree with me?

New chapter in life

Hi you, how is everything? A lot has happened, and finally, I have time to get back on track with blogging. This spring has been crazy, and I have been working so much it does not make any sense. I started my last internship earlier this year and for financial reasons, I decided I will also keep my other job. When you add two jobs together, it suddenly came to 55 to 70 hour work weeks – what the hell! And top of that, I have been doing my last school projects, working with several projects and started to look for a new job. It has not been easy, but somehow I have managed to pull it all together. And I am so happy about all the work I have done, as Monday I´ll start a new chapter in my life.

So what is happening? My internship is done, and I can start to plan my graduation. I also resigned from my part-time job earlier this week, as on Monday I am starting a new full-time job matching my education. I couldn´t be happier and more excited about all this!! I started to look for a new job already some months ago, and I have to tell you, it has been so much more stressing and difficult I could have ever imagined. I will write more about this later, as I think it is a topic I have a lot to say. So from super busy schedule and crazy working hours, I will go to normal Monday to Friday job. Honestly, can´t even fully understand how much more time I will have in the future. Or will I?

I have been working with a crazy timetable the past million years. I started to work part-time already when I was in high school, and only when I have been living abroad, I have not worked. I always have so much what I want to do, but with the work-school combo there just hasn’t been enough time for everything. So you can imagine it is really a huge change for me to have all evenings, weekends and holidays free from now on. I have about million plans for all the extra free time, and I can already feel how good this change is. I have huge plans for my blog (big changes coming this summer), I hired a personal trainer (more about this later), there are so many travel plans, I want to improve so many skills and take some courses, I also want to finally finish DIY projects I have started earlier and there are so many books waiting for me and and and.. One could say hello and goodbye free time, haha!
