  1. I deserve it! those boys in the shop get bread all the time. I went on here to post my banana bread recipe, and you beat me to it, so I'll post later. Thanks L-Train!

  2. Woohoo! Recipes! Thank you for posting this. It sounds amazingly delicious. I like the chocolate chips. I can't wait to try it. I just started saving my ripe bananas in the freezer for just such an occasion. Mmmm.
