Pure Yumminess...

I've been thinking about my Mom alot these last few days. Tomorrow marks 5 months that she has not been with us, in the physical sense. I feel her with me quite often and I know she will always be with me in one way or another. That's how we Mom's are! She's especially with me when I have ripe banana's in my Home. She use to make it alot when I was growing up and she wrote her recipe down for me when I first married my hubby. It's a simple recipe and I will pass it down to my girls when they are ready for it also. Today started out on the very warm side. But as it turned autumn like and got at least 20 degrees cooler then when we woke at 6 a.m. and I saw those banana's sitting there waiting for me,
I knew today was the day!

So I readied my ingredients....
dry in one bowl, wet in another and
smashed banana's in yet another....

Combined them all together

I decided to make one larger loaf for my daughter who lives
away at school and a smaller one for my sister and
then one for her daughter
who I will be seeing tomorrow.
I'm sure we will shed a few tears!

The smell is so comforting....
but, nope not quite ready.

There we go, perfect peaks!
Now patience while they cool for a few minutes.


Of course I had to taste test....
perfect, with or without butter....
I chose butter....
What would you choose?


  1. So sorry to hear of you losing your mom this year. I lost my dad a month ago. I was feeling the loss today. He made the best pies. I haven't been able to bring myself to make one of his pies yet. I hope I can soon, though. They were so yummy!

  2. Mmmmm...pure autumn yumminess!
    Would you like to share your recipe?
    I swear that I could smell these loaves through the computer screen. Mmmmm!
    If you would want to share your recipe with me, you can contact me at I would really appreciate it :o)
    Have a great weekend!

  8. Hi Lisa! Is there anything that smells better than banana bread in the oven? Thanks for your sweet comments- how special to have a project that connects you in such a special way with your mother. Enjoy your day!
