Banana bread is my favorite thing to bake. I could easily eat the whole loaf…not that I would do that! I promise that I share with the rest of the family! There is just something about banana bread that takes me back to when I was a kid and my mom made it for me.I love this set of bowls that I received from Good Cook. Aren’t they the prettiest shades of blue?
My job when I was little was to mash the bananas…now it’s my daughter’s job! She takes it very seriously and does a great job. I love getting my children involved while I’m in the kitchen. My youngest loves to sit on the counter and just watch me. I’m trying to teach them the importance of homemade foods!
I’ve always thought about writing a cookbook, but I know that I just don’t have the time for it right now. I think I’ll add it to my bucket list! I’m in a food blogger group and one of my fellow bloggers has written a cookbook about her passion, bread! Donna Currie, from Cookistry, has just finished her book and it’s currently in pre-order on Amazon. Make Ahead Bread has 100 easy to use make ahead bread recipes so you can have fresh and delicious breads at any time!
