Mango Salad with Miso-Sesame Dressing

This recipe came out of my cravings for something bright and refreshing but also something with a depth of flavour. What developed was an idea to create my take on a mango salad (Thai) with a miso-based dressing (Japanese). After making it the first time, my mother frequently asks for it to accompany our meals.

Chocolate Banana Bread Muffins

Chocolate Banana Bread Muffins

One of my FAVORITE recipes that my mom would make when I lived at home was chocolate banana nut muffins. Whenever I’d notice the bananas starting to go bad, I would be like “oooh mom can you make the muffins?!” and she always would.

With this recipe, I originally wanted to make banana bread, but I realized that our bread loaf pans are at home (it’s baseball season so we’re traveling right now). I figured I’d just use muffin pans and call it a day. But the muffin pans and brown bananas reminded me of my mom’s recipe so I decided to stray from my original idea and let my mom inspire this recipe!
