MckLinky Blog Hop for July 21, 2009 - Favorite Recipe or Dish

Welcome Blog Hoppers!

This week's theme is favorite recipes, so here's mine:

Banana fana fo-fana! Banana Bread!

I am a big baker: I don't "cook" very well, but I can bake! I love to make this easy and delish banana bread for my son to take with him to share at school!
Its also great to freeze for a quickly warmed snack or breakfast on the go during the week (mini loaf pans work great for this).
And who can resist a nice big loaf of fresh hot banana bread with some butter and coffee in the morning?!?
This stuff is Great, Enjoy!!

----> But wait! Thats not Crafty!! you say.. (you blog hoppers might not say it, but the Crafty Crowd may...)

Happy Crafting!
