1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • Me: mom, 50 shades of grey is a terrible book that promotes violent psychos and sick relationships
  • Mom: well, your books aren't that healthy either
  • Brother: yeah, you read books with homosexual relationships
  • Me: and what's wrong with being gay?
  • *my mom and brother both fell silent because they couldn't find one good reason why being gay was wrong*
  • My homophobic days are over, and so are my family's.

50: “Tell me you need me.”

Tell me you don't need me and I’ll go.  I’ll let you leave Neverland.”  His voice cracked in sadness.  He was putting his love for you on the line.  He was putting his heart on the line.

Feeling vulnerable in front of the band of heroes that you accompanied on their quest to find Henry, Peter stood still.

“Tell me you don’t need me, and I’ll be out of your life forever.”  But the thing was, you couldn’t.

Snow could sense your distress and put a hand on your shoulder. Her, along with David, were the only people that knew about your past with Peter Pan.

The boy marched up to you and pulled you into a breath taking and needy kiss.

“I need you.” You chocked out. You fell into Peter’s arms helplessly. “I need you Peter.”

Thayer’s Double Chocolate Banana Bread

I had some requests for my recipe.  I don’t mind sharing, so here you go.

½ cup of butter
1 cup of granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
3 overripe bananas
1 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
¼ cup cocoa powder
½ cup chocolate chips
1 tbsp sour cream

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Grease an 8″ x 8″ pan or a loaf pan.  You can also bake these as muffins, just change the baking time to 25 minutes.
  2. Cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat until fluffy.
  3. Break bananas into pieces and mash them into your mixture.  Personally, I do all of the mixing for this recipe with a fork, but use what works for you.
  4. Incorporate baking powder, cocoa powder, and flour.  Stir until mixed, but careful not to over mix.
  5. Add chocolate chips and sour cream.  Stir just until sour cream is incorporated.
  6. Pour batter into greased pan and bake for 50-60 minutes depending on your oven.  It’s done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out on a wire rack to cool completely.
