Recipe thoughts.........

Today, we were "out and about". We did our grocery shopping and ran a lot of errands. We both have winter projects we're doing and needed supplies for them. The weather wasn't bad today so it was good to do it while the temps were sort of mild. Especially since they will not be mild for the next week. Noooo, the temps are dropping down to the single digits so it will be soooo cold that Kaiser the Wonder Beagle will not want to go out! While we were "out and about" today, one of our stops was a visit to Collette. She's back at work and doing pretty good. She knew I was bringing her banana bread and was excited to have it delivered. Interestingly, I sent Devlin a text and said I'd mailed him a couple loaves to his work and he was quick to reply with a "Yay!" Who knew they'd get so excited over homemade banana bread!


When we got home, Steve and I had some of it with our supper. It's been several years since I made banana bread and after eating a big slice, warmed in the microwave and then added a bit of butter........well, I understood why they were looking forward to it! That got me to thinking about an e-mail that my Uncle Gordie sent me. He had asked me about my blog and wondered if I ever offered a recipe. I answered that I had shared a couple but not on a regular basis. He said he thought that adding a recipe would be a good thing, that my readers would "eat it up!" That made me smile. If this banana bread is any indication, yes, dear readers.......you will "eat it up!" And so, here is the recipe. It's been in my recipe box for at least 35 years, maybe more. I can tell by my hand-writing and the worn recipe card. It's quick and easy and so tasty!


Each month, I am going to post a new/old recipe. I have some great resources for recipes........a cookbook that belonged to my Grandma Goldie (Gordie's mother) and one from my Great Aunt Bell. I have all the recipe cards from my mother Mary, plus I have favorites that I have made since I started cooking and baking in the late 1960's. Good recipes are good recipes and need to be passed on! Hope you enjoy this new feature I'll be adding to my blog!

Sandi, I'm definitely going to try your banana bread - the recipe, that is ... I won't be popping in. :D I'm looking forward to more of your recipes.

Our newspaper just had an article about the importance of sharing recipes. She gave a lemon pound cake recipe that I tried and everyone loved. I look forward to trying yours.

I love banana nut bread. It has been a while since I made it too. I experimented by adding chocolate chips and my family was crazy about it. I took a big chunk of it to my daughter one day while she was at work. She shared it with her co-worker. He asked her a few times after that if her Mom had made any more banana bread. LOL

Will be making a double batch today! The weather is supposed to/is quite ugly and getting more so in the hours ahead. We will need the coziness of the aroma of fresh baked banana bread!!!!!

We used the old bananas last week for banana bread. I'll have to try this recipe when we get more old bananas.
