This banana bread is soo tasty! Such a good morning treat!… Well I’ve been gone quite awhile and I think it’s about time to come back. This year is a hard year for me being a junior and with school work, college searching and volleyball recruiting it’s hard to fit in time for this blog. Along with that I recently got a boyfriend. He’s really smart and nice but he means less baking time! As you can see the trend is I haven’t been having a lot of free time.  Even though it’s hard to fit in I really would like to keep fitting in some recipes and I will try to post at least once a week. Coming up soon will be a post with all the things that have happened recently!
