Banana Bread

Nothing quite like the smell of warm banana bread that will make your home smell, well, homey. I have been wanting to make this for a while now, and since I had some ripe bananas sitting around the timing was perfect! The recipe called for 3, but since I like mine extra flavorful I used 4 bananas. The bread is incredibly moist and perfect with a cup of coffee for breakfast. Or, make it a perfect dessert and drizzle a little melted Nutella or chocolate over top!

I am so so excited to be going back to Charleston tomorrow for a wedding! I can’t wait to see everyone, and most importantly, enjoy some sunny and warm weather! Its snowing like crazy right now, so if I close my eyes I can imagine the sun on my face and the swaying palm trees I’ll be seeing tomorrow!
