Today I bring you a tale of two loaf pans and the accidental discovery of our new favorite snack. A few years ago when I was on a mission to find the world's best banana bread I was cooking both at my own house and the house of my beloved. We both owned loaf pans.

My special someone and I are in charge of dessert for family dinners and we've gotten into a comfortable routine. In the morning, I mix up a batch of cookie dough and set it aside in the fridge to chill out for the day. When it's time to leave, I grab the dough and cookie sheets to take with us. When we all sit down to dinner, I slide the dough in the oven and by the time dinner is done, fresh baked cookies await.

My special someone and I have a designated weeknight set aside for date night. The first item on the agenda is always a home cooked meal. What do I make? Well, Shepherd's Pie, Burritos, Penne alla Vodka, General Tso's Chicken, and Chicken Marsala are a few of the frequent hitters. The rest of the time I turn to the internet in search of new dinners. As with all first time recipes, some are hits, some are misses. And some just knock it out of the park.

guac for a party. Head into the grocery store and find nothing but rock hard avocados. It's time for Plan B. Ok, what can I whip up that will be just as popular as guac? Aha, deviled eggs. Brilliant. Look up a few recipes on my phone, come up with the consensus on an ingredient list, and head home. And then I remember that as much as I love eating them, I hate making deviled eggs. I always get the timing wrong on boiling them, ending up either too hard or too soft. And I have bad luck with peeling them, scared for life by the time I made a batch of 18 and spent hours picking off shells piece by piece. I knew that I needed to find a rock solid recipe to back up my endeavors.
