A little Cooking going on......


Yum......the smell of Fall is in my kitchen!

I actually baked Banana Nut Bread yesterday and oh my, the 
smell in my kitchen was heavenly.  

I always have to bake two separate batches of the stuff...
Some of my kiddos are not crazy about pecans or walnuts, so therefore, I have to try to accommodate them all.

We tell them.....don't tell anyone that you don't like Pecans!
After all, growing high quality Pecan trees is how we make our living!

I really had forgotten just how easy this recipe takes no time at all to make.

2 cups flour
1/2 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
3-4 mashed bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp soda

Cream butter and sugar....
add   eggs and bananas
add  flour, soda, and vanilla

Bake at 375 for 45 min..

Turns out moist and delicious every time!!

It felt pretty good to get back in the kitchen, so I continued baking (chocolate chip cookies) just after the bread came out
of the oven...

I love to wrap each cookie individually and put them out for the kids to have when they get home from school...
I sometimes add a little note to each cookie, by writing on the outside of the wrap!  Makes it special!

I'm thinking that my Boot Camp may have put some
kick into my step........

Enjoy the Blessings of this day........

  1. YUM---save me a piece!!!!! ha... I love Banana Bread and the older and softer the nanners are, the better!!!!

    I also love Pumpkin Bread in the Fall... AND--I love Pumpkin Spice Coffee.....

    Oh --how I love Fall.

  2. I'll be right over for a slice of that Banana bread and a cup of coffee. :) Sounds lovely.

  3. Thanks for the recipe! That looks wonderful. I've been looking for a real recipe for banana nut bread that's not from a box.

  4. I have not made Banana Nut Bread in ages. I will have to try your recipe. I am betting my husband will enjoy it.

  5. Lawdy be girlie! That looks and smells delicious! :o) I can taste it! I made some breakfast muffins the other day and feel myself getting into fall baking. I'm thinking something pumpkin!

  6. Oh this is wonderful! so delicious and yes, all the flavors of Fall :))

  7. My Hubs loves Banana Nut Bread. MMMMMmmmm looks good

  8. I made Banana Bread last week and I have to make one without nuts too because some of the family have allergies to walnuts...we take no chances. Your recipe sounds very similar to mine, only I add 1/2 a cup of granola or Grapenuts cereal. It's wonderful. I can taste yours already and yes, we have a pumpkin patch with 50-some pumpkins in it.
    BlessYa and ThanksForStoppin

  9. Hi Shug!

    This looks delish! I'm joining "boot camp", if this is what you can eat!! Can't wait to try it. Do you think I will have to change anything for altitude, I am at almost 5000 feet above sea level, and some recipes just don't work here?!



Thank you for Blessing me today with your comments...
