How To Hook Yourself A Man….

My faithful readers know, GF Guy is OBSESSED with Banana Bread. That’s how I hooked him, Ladies! 

Every time he comes home to visit (that’s strange to say, but he’s on the road more than he is home), I make him a few mini-loaves to take with him as airplane food.

I have made so many permutations of his favorite treat that it’s impossible to keep up. In fact, I don’t even look at the original recipe any more. I’ve made it so many times that now it’s all done by instinct and what I happen to have in my pantry. No eggs? No problem! Out of tapioca starch? No sweat, honey! 

It’s so nice to know with absolute certainty what ingredients can be substituted for others. That’s how you know you have officially mastered the art of allergy-free cooking!

This version of Banana Bread is officially our new favorite! It is moist, sweet, and delicious! I wasn’t able to get a picture because GF Guy squirreled it all into his carry-on bag! That stinker!

Now bake yourself a few loaves and get busy, girls!
