Banana bread!!!!

Ugh, what a turbulent couple of weeks we have had in the world. With the Corona virus literally shutting down everything, people are loosing their jobs and the world is just at hold I feel like we need to try and find some positivity in the negative and stressful times. Its hard but I am just trying to focus on my daugther, my blog, staying healthy, laughing and making the best of the situation that we can not control.

I made banana bread the other day and it came out so good. Super moist and just the perfect amount of sweet. I love banana bread and its sooooo easy to make. I used dark brown sugar cause I like the flavor of it more. But you can also use light brown sugar or granulated sugar. If i have super ripe bananas and I dont have time to make banana bread I peel them cut them up and freeze them in a bag. Then I use them for smoothies, NEVER let a banana go to waste :-)!
