Banana Bread, nom om om!

Nothing, and I mean nothing, is better than freshly-baked banana bread. I mean, really... who doesn't love banana bread? I can happily eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, a snack... Anytime! 

Below you will find a great BB recipe; there are lots out there, but I have always had the best turn out with this - a crunchy crust, but soft and moist center! (Not to mention I always have these basic ingredients lying around, so it doesn't require me restocking my pantry.)

What you need:
- 3 or 4 ripe bananas
- 1/3 cup melted butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cups flour

I like my banana bread without nuts, but go ahead and add a 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts or chocolate chips to mix it up! (One time I added mini Reese's Peanut Butter Cups... oh so good, but I ate the whole loaf (over ice cream...) in one episode of Real Housewives of Orange County - not interested in doing that again).

How to:
1. Mash bananas and melt butter, then mix both together in a large mixing bowl. 
2. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. 
3. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix. 
4. Mix in the flour.
5. Pour mixture into a greased 4x8 inch loaf pan, and bake for 45 min - 1 hour at 350 degrees.

When the bread is done baking, let it cool before storing.  Enjoy your yummy treat!
