GWH Banana Bread

Who doesn't remember our moist and delicious GWH Banana Bread . . . This was a morning basic for our breakfast bar.  The recipe also ties in well with my story: Cake with a Kick appearing on my Writing Blog this weekend.  Enjoy!

  1. You started another blog, that's awesome! I'll sign up now as I love to cook too- also, where did you find the poll widget? I tried a countdown widget yesterday for my book, but I couldn't get an add-free one for free, big shock!

  2. I found the poll widget listed with the basic "add a gadget" stuff. It was very easy to configure . . . check it. And thanks for joining my cooking blog. My ex-students have been asking for one.

  3. ...pretty terrible of you to put up a banana bread receipe after I read that scary 'Cake' story, wow!
