I finally got around to making this recipe, and it was a winner. Although it has a decent number of steps, it came together pretty quickly. I will definitely be making it again.
A plethora of bananas and a free afternoon resulted in these banana cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I used this recipe for the cake, and added a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg to the batter to make them taste even more like fall. Instead of the recipe frosting, I made a simple cream cheese frosting with a fresh vanilla bean. Yum.
I splurged on toiletries from Santa Maria Novella, handmade books and notecards, and a few odds and ends for the kitchen.
We took our first trip out of the country in 2 years for my best friend’s wedding, and Italy sure did not disappoint. Traveling during COVID required extra preparation and precaution, but it was definitely a trip to remember.
I just got these gorgeous heels and Acne Musubi bag (both on sale!). I love that they are classic pieces but with interesting designs.
