I have just returned from an excellent trip to the States, and am bursting to tell you all about the various wonderful meals I had in NYC and to pass on a recipe for an extraordinarily refreshing yet satisfying green bean salad that I ate at The Standard Grill.
But suffice it to say that time is not on my side today, so the salad receipt will have to wait until the weekend for a write up. I hope by then to have replaced my camera, which breathed its last just as I was photographing some tiny silvery dried fish in Chinatown.
Before the weekend I thought I would pass on a brilliant banana bread recipe from Dan Lepard aka The Guardian's baking guru. I've made this twice - once on the day after my birthday as a cure for a mild but longlasting hangover, and once in order to provide Mr. F with a week's worth of breakfasts whilst I was in the US. It is completely delicious and filling smeared with crunchy peanut butter. It also freezes well.
Here's the link:
If you scroll down to the bottom you will see that Dan was kind enough to post a link to the photo of my finished product that I posted on Twitter.
