  1. What a perfect and generous gift, you received, Tina!
    Everything is so useful, just the right things you need for baking...since everything is so costly these days.

    I love your banana bread, and the amazing recipe. I make mine quite similar, sometimes with a streusel topping, or choc. chip folded in.
    Will make mine, exactly like yours, since I always have ripe bananas, and will link it back to you for the recipe.
    Would like to do that in the next few days. Yummy bread:DDD
