This week a special guest:
Banana Bread with Robin Bielman
Who tried it: Robin Bielman, author of Talk British to Me
Why she likes it: I could pretty much live on bread, and this recipe is a favorite, handed down to me from my mom. My family loves this baked goodie so much that a loaf lasts all of one day in my house. (I do have three hungry guys who can easily pack it in.) The secret to making this recipe better than all the other banana bread recipes out there is frozen bananas. ?
½ cup soft butter
1 cup sugar
4 mashed ripe bananas (or in my case, frozen bananas that I’ve defrosted in the microwave – all those bananas that go bad sitting on the kitchen counter are saved in the freezer for this recipe!)
1 tsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs.
Mix mashed bananas, milk and vanilla, set aside.
Mix flour, salt and baking soda, set aside.
Alternate blending in each mixture with the butter and sugar.
Turn into a greased 9x5x3 inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour. Cool 10 minutes in pan. Enjoy!
With all that extra time not spent in the kitchen, what’s Robin currently reading?
I’m currently reading When We Touch by Tia Louise. I love second chance romances and this one is really good!

As the Dating Guy on L.A.’s top morning show, I give the single guy’s perspective on dating, love, and sex—and I give great advice. Everyone’s hooking up…well, except for me. Sure, I can get any woman I want, but I’ve got a “no relationship” clause in my contract and the only woman I want has “relationship” written all over her. Probably stamped on her ass, too. And wouldn’t I like to confirm that.
Unfortunately, she wants nothing to do with me. At all. Something about the next Ice Age might have even come up in her rebuttal. Adorable. Because she’s determined to ignore what one simple kiss proved: she wants me as badly as I want her.
Everything in me is screaming to go after her, but I’ve got a secret that I’m fairly certain will end up with her roasting my nuts over an open fire. So, job on the line? Check. Nuts on the line? Check. Can’t get her out of my head? Nail…meet coffin. But what a way to go…
When not attached to her laptop, USA Today Bestselling Author Robin Bielman can almost always be found with her nose in a book. A California girl, the beach is her favorite place for fun and inspiration. Her fondness for swoon-worthy heroes who flirt and stumble upon the girl they can’t live without jumpstarts all of her story ideas. She is a 2014 RITA Finalist, loves to frequent coffee shops, and plays a mean game of sock tug of war with her cute, but sometimes naughty dog, Harry. She cherishes her family and friends and loves to connect with readers.
