The first 24 hours in Paris have been a dream. This city is magical and too beautiful for words. I've wanted to come here for so long, I still can't believe I'm actually here. We live in the St. John's Paris Campus on rue de Sèvres in the 6e arrondissement, surrounded by patisseries and brasseries. Our first dinner out was in a brasserie called L'Horizon. We ordered two onion soups, a steak in a pepper sauce and a bottle of Rose. Everything was fantastic and relatively inexpensive.For today's lunch we decided to buy some groceries and eat at home.Charcuterie, . . .
Banana Bread is a great comfort food - it makes me feel right at home. This recipe is super easy, I've been making it for years.

I like to make these scones with dried cranberries or apricots but you can use any dried fruits you like/have. You can also use chocolate chips.

Combine the first five ingredients in a large bowl. Grate in butter (sounds weird, I know, but it's not, I promise.) Mix in butter . . .
