Mama's Banana Bread

"The holidays weren't complete without Mama's Banana Bread and Recipe #382815. I've tried to keep the tradition going...even sending the breads up North to family. Mama's Banana Bread is wonderful for breakfast (try it toasted) with sweet cream butter, midday with coffee, or a late night snack. It's so easy to make, don't wait for the holidays....have it for the family all year long!!"

<p>I recently celebrated my 19th anniversary living in SW Florida. I moved here from Massachusetts, just north of Boston. As much as I miss family back home, I truly love living here - the beaches, the tropical beauty, the people, and the weather (except the hurricanes!). Everyday is just another day in Paradise. I work at the new international airport here in Fort Myers. I have an opportunity to meet many different and interesting people from around the world. I've had an interest in cooking since I was a little boy, following my grandmother around the kitchen. Since I wasn't blessed with any artistic or musical talent, I think cooking was my way of being creative. My passion is my family and friends. My second passion is cooking for them. My favorite way to entertain is informally...brunches, cookouts, and small dinner parties. Just relaxing, enjoying each other's company, some good food and drink, and a little fun are the only rules of the house.</p>
