The Beginning & Banana Bread

Hello!

Welcome to my small space of the internet. It’s a pleasure to meet you, my name is Anna, and you can find out a little bit more about me here.

I’ve been wanting to start this blog for a while now, because I have become aware of a whole new way of looking at life which has, quite honestly, changed everything I thought I knew about my existence, and has also brought me a lot of happiness; which I want to share with you through this blog. I’ve also learnt some lessons about life which are helping me to make sense of my human experience a bit better, and I hope that some of them will resonate with you as well.

It’s important for me to add that I am utterly obsessed with food as well, particularly goods of the baked variety. So I thought, what better way to merge my two favourite things, baking and learning about this whole life thing, than by navigating my way through these lessons with food?

I have been trying to decide what would be the best thing I could create to introduce myself to you properly; I had the existential crisis of trying to work out which baked good would best represent me as a person, which is utterly ridiculous. I thought about baking all sorts of fancy things with chocolate shards sticking out at all angles (that would have been a health hazard waiting to happen), but tonight, as an interim bake between the fancy recipe planning, I made a banana loaf.

The reason I am so ecstatic to be writing about banana bread (with loads of cinnamon in, just to help your senses fully capture the majesty of this loaf) is because it was so simple. I saw the bananas, thankfully and serendipitously (on a side note, isn’t that a magical word?!) had the ingredients to make it, and an hour and a bit later, it’s ready. I love that. No frills or shards necessary. I think it’s the perfect way for me to say hello to you, because firstly, who doesn’t love banana bread? And secondly, I intend for this blog to be soul warming, like a loaf of banana bread, so this is the ideal way to start proceedings.

So, welcome! It’s great to be finally talking to you, and I’m excited for what is to come. I have big plans for this blog, and I hope you’ll join me to see them all unfold…
