CSN | Stores Product Review

I had the pleasure of reviewing a Women's Flirty Apron in Scarlet Blossom from CSN | Stores.
So far I haven't come across anything I don't like about this apron.

Here are the things I like:
  • It has 5 stars reviews from 3 reviewers on CSN | Stores website! 
  • It's marked down from $39.99 to $29.85.
  • I love the color and pattern! The pattern is inspired by magnolia and aster flowers. I grew up in Omaha, Nebraska where magnolia's are dwarf ones. When I moved to Savannah, Georgia for two years fell in love with their huge beautiful magnolia trees!
  • The pockets in the front of the apron are great. Especially for when I have little hands trying helping me in the kitchen. ;)

  • It's super easy to put on. 
  • It's one size fits all.
  • It washes up nice! I was worried about the red color bleeding into the white, but this did not happen.
  • The material is 100% soft cotton.
This morning I made banana bread. The recipe is super easy!

It still has the sugar, but a lot less fat!

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Spray two bread pans. Set aside.
  3. Mix flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, baking powder together.
  4. Mix in the milk and yogurt.
  5. Mix in olive oil and egg whites.
  6. Mix in mushed banana's. Cooking Tip - If the banana's are not ripe, I peel and microwave them to soften them up. 
  7. Mix in apple sauce. You can replace the apple sauce with fresh grated apple.
  8. Add in chopped nuts.
  9. Pour enough mix to fill the bottom of two well sprayed pans. Lightly sprinkle in chocolate chips, add in the rest of the mix, lightly sprinkle on some more chocolate chips. Cooking Tip - If the chocolate chips are mixed into the batter, the bread sometimes sticks to the pan. 
  10. Cook for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
