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.
1 cup Sugar
1/2 c. butter
3 mashed bananas
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. :)
