Isn't it funny how the moment when bananas look almost unedible is the moment that they become perfect for banana bread. Seriously, it's like that moment when they turn completely black, and they are just about to give off swarms of fruit flies, that they become the perfect ripeness for banana bread. This is another relic from Nana's recipe book. I grew up on this banana bread recipe and I still love making it, and they aroma it gives off through the house.
I also want to thank Emily who works at America's Test Kitchen and Patricia of Technicolor Kitchen for sending me two new carrot cake recipes. I will surely try both of them because they are so completely different from each other. Emily's is a tropical carrot cake, and Patricia's is a Brazilian Style carrot cake, which seems like worlds more fun than a Brazilian Style bikini wax. I'm just saying, it probably is.
