Vegan Apple Walnut Banana Bread
Baking is such a fabulous distraction from real life. There could be a million things going on in my life, then I bake and it all goes away. Temporarily.
I have begun my grad school applications yet again, and I am really hoping that this time is the charm for me.
It really takes a lot of dedication and perseverance to fill out numerous grad applications and essays while studying for GRE and working through an internship. I will be thrilled when it is all over!
Instead of study breaks, I have been taking baking breaks… it works out perfectly!
Just the right amount of distraction combined with the satisfaction of study munchies.
