What’s up guys?

 

It’s been a busy few weeks here – summer is over and fall is upon us!

 

I’m looking forward to the slightly cooler weather, boots, and pumpkin spice everything!

 

We’ve been soaking up the last bit of the summer with friends.

Not bad, right? We’re doing OK at this “adult” thing?

 

What didn’t look very nice on my kitchen counter was this.

 

Black banana

 

I had also just bought a beautiful new loaf dish so it was a no brainer really, that I was going to make Banana bread!

This Banana bread is crazy moist and delicious and it will make your home smell amazing.

I know walnuts are the usual choice of nuts for Banana bread, but try this recipe with pecans, won’t you? They aren’t as bitter, and become sorta chewy and so yummy after baking with the banana-y batter.

I love recipes where you essentially dump all the ingredients into a bowl, mix and bake. This is one of those! I told ya it was super easy! 😀
