Hello, there! First off, I want to apologize for my lack of a recipe-related post yesterday. I’ve been sick all week, and so I wasn’t as able to stay on top of my posts as I would have liked to have been.

However, to slightly make up for my missing post, I want to offer you a tip today. While browsing Feedly, my attention was caught by a post from The Kitchn – Can You Quickly Ripen Bananas in the Oven for Last-Minute Banana Bread?

I have to admit, the title definitely made me curious. I like banana bread and banana muffins, and I often get a craving for them. But sometimes, the thought of having to wait for the bananas to ripen so that I can actually make something tends to put an end to that craving. So the idea of ripening bananas in the oven definitely appealed to me.

But this was one of The Kitchn’s tip-testing posts, and so I knew there was a chance they would disprove it. I clicked anyway, hoping for the best.

Well, it turns out the tip works. The Kitchn’s test showed that ripening the bananas in the oven was the perfect way to get bananas to the point where you can bake with them.

I’m not sure about you, but I think this tip is going to mean a lot more banana bread and muffins in my future.
