  2. YUMMY! I love banana bread! Thanks for the recipe! HUGS!

  3. Hi Debbie, this recipe sounds delicious, and I think I have all the ingredients except nuts!! Guess I can still bake it without them. xo,

  4. I am always and I repeat ALWAYS looking for another banana bread recipe to add to my list of favorites. Banana bread and poppy seed bread are my go to dishes for any occasion. I love this recipe and will definitely be giving it a try. Thanks for visiting my site. I love your blog but I especially love your lovethedecor shop. I checked it out and I am so mad that I didn't see one of the garden benches before I bought the one I did a few weeks ago from a store here in houston. Just throwing this idea out there but if you are ever interested in sponsoring/advertising on my site I would love to have you and can give you more information if you want. Just email me at bellecooking at gmail dot com

  5. Sounds wonderful! I love the tropical flavors!

    Enjoy your weekend!
