  1. This was a very good banana bread. It is quite easy to prepared, and everyone really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Candle Lover. Made for Fal 2011 Pick-A-Chef.
  2. Tried this today since I had three over ripe bananas. it was quick and simple to prepare and has a really great taste and texture. I made six mini's only me and my DH, so it lasts longer this way!!!! We've enjoyed one loaf already today.I sometimes like to top my loaves with a maple flavored butter frosting. Thanks for the good recipe.


<p>My love of cooking started when I was in grade school. My earliest memory was making a wonderful birthday cake from Scratch with my Grandmother in a big bright red bowl. I remember we had a lot of fun making it and eating the cake. <br /><br />I have a wonderful husband and 2 daughters 16yrs and 4yrs old. I have a Social Work degree and worked with mentally ill adults for several years. I really enjoyed my work in a group home. I currently am staying home with my youngest and am not sure what I will do when she goes to school. I might get back into the Social Work field. <br /><br />I am sharing recipes that I want to keep safe from my own family favorites as well as recipes that I would like to try and haven't made yet. <br /><br />Recipezaar is a wonderful place and I love all the recipes everyone shares. I collect cookbooks and have slowed down now that I have access to the wonderful recipes here. <br /><br />I hope you enjoy some of the recipes that I share =) <br /><br />Ann <br /><br /></p>
