Banana nut bread is the quintessential item I go to when I think and need comfort food. It was that item I could easily whip up on a cold night in college after an exam, or that "go to" item to take to friends & neighbors. My recipe, the one that my Mom & Grandma both use is the best--hands down. It's light, airy, and just the right amount of banana. (coming from a girl who doesn't like bananas, this is key) Part of my birthday goals was to compile a list of local San Diego favorites, but I got to thinking that some of my favorites are in my own recipe book. Each month I will post a favorite item ranging from dinner foods to tasty treats. I hope that some of my recipe book favorites can become some of yours as well. Happy eating, and watch for those crumbs in the keyboard--- they are a pain to get out!
