Yesterday was a boring day, so I decided to bake something. When I entered my kitchen the first thing that caught my eyes were my bananas in a fruit bowl and I saw black patches on their skin. That meant I had to do something with them. I decided to make Banana bread. (Which I haven’t baked for a while) I remember seeing a recipe in my Martha’s Baking Handbook Cookbook. So I gave it a try. It came out absolutely delicious. I think my son was addicted to it. Every time he takes a slice he tells me ” mommy this is delicious”. We as moms all know that we love to hear compliments from our children..
