Banana Bread

Again - I in no way claim to be a "chef" or "baker" - but recently have been asked about a couple recipes, so I'd thought I would share.

Does anyone else feel like their cooking isn't very good?? I can make a meal exactly like my mother does and just am not as fond of it. Maybe it's the work that I myself put into it, or the ingredients or the memory that heightens the flavor, but I just think my food isn't that great. And I try a new recipe with very high expectations and excitement of how it will taste and am often disappointed.

But I do enjoy cooking/baking, and I love doing it for other people and for my family. So I keep pressing on, and maybe one day I will be a "chef" or a "baker". :)

First one on the list is my Mother's Banana Bread!!! My husband claims this is the best banana bread he has ever had. . . (I think he's just nice to me). I have no idea what would make this recipe different than other's but here it is.

Banana Bread
1 cup Sugar
1/2 c. butter
3 mashed bananas
1 egg
2 cups of Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt

Cream the butter and Sugar. Add the Bananas and Egg. Then add the dry ingredients. Simple as that. Although I will add, I never make this without adding some chocolate chips to it. And sometimes nuts. :)

Bake 350 Degrees for 1 hr.
Makes muffins too, or mini loaves or whatever you want to do with it. :)

(wish I had pictures but I don't :( )

Jess,
Every time I have had dinner at your house it has been DELICIOUS!! From waffles to that asian noodle dish to your different kinds of soups and stews! You sincerely are one of the best home-made home-cooked meal cooks I've ever known! And I mean that from the bottom of my heart!

I agree with Sandy - you are a great cook and baker!!! You started early getting practice - always helping me in the kitchen! And, you cook my meals as good or better than I do. And now I love that we can share recipes!

I so agree about cooking the same meal as your mother and your mothers always seeming to taste so much better! I am sure you do great cooking though!! As long as the hubby likes it, that is all that matters!
