Luly’s Banana Bread

Good Morning! Super happy I can squeak in another post before the wedding and it is all thanks to my mom!  She was in town this past weekend and was a huge help on tackling the to do list.  We had a really relaxing Sunday and that afternoon I was able to make some awesome banana bread. The recipe comes from my grandmother, Luly, and in my opinion is the best hands down.  We had a bunch of bananas that had gotten overly ripe (sometimes I swear Mike purposely doesn’t eat them so I have to make banana bread) and those really are necessary, especially for this recipe.

It’s great plain and cold just out of the fridge or she serves it warmed up in the microwave with a bit of butter–either way its legendary in our family and I’ve got Mike hooked on it too …

So…I’m back…with renewed focus!  I’ve already got some great ideas for this blog and I wanted …
