Seriously, this banana bread elevates banana bread to dessert. This is a must bake unless you are the lone primate that doesn’t like bananas.

Notes: I wrapped the phyllo pastry sheets into triangles around the filling, then brushed melted butter onto the packets before baking. Next time I’d make the filling less soggy so the packets would stay dry, and probably bake them longer since they didn’t quite brown.

Made my first artichoke today! Did not realize the leaf tips had thorns and definitely got a few stuck in my fingers when I was picking out the artichoke at the store…lesson learned.
Simply Recipes has a great “how-to” guide on how to prepare, cook and eat artichokes, complete with pictures (http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/how_to_cook_and_eat_an_artichoke/) Since I don’t have have a steamer basket big enough to fit the artichoke, I looked around online and decided to boil the artichoke instead: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/amanda-greene/artichokes-bake-boil-steam_b_3158427.html
I place the artichoke in a pot and filled it with water until the artichoke was about 2/3 submerged. Add a bay leaf, lemon juice, ~2 tsp of salt into the water, ~1 tsp chicken bouillon, and ~1 tsp minced garlic (didn’t have whole garlic cloves) Boiled/simmered for about 20 minutes, then prepared a dipping sauce of melted butter + lemon juice + garlic.
Overall, the artichoke was pretty tasty, but I felt like it was more work than it was worth…not sure if I’ll make it again. While artichokes are supposed to be pretty healthy, pretty sure the melted butter sauce negated any health benefits =P
