an example of randomness

So remember how I said I never really follow a recipe?  Here's the recipe I used to make banana bread with my kids today.... as well as a few modifications.

2 cups all-purpose flour 2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teas baking powder
1/2 teas baking soda
1/4 teas ground cinnamon
1/8 teas ground nutmeg
                                       a splash of vanilla
2 beaten eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas ...well, we didn't measure, we had 4, so we used 4
1 cup sugar      1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup cooking oil       1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/4 cup chopped walnuts I felt like keeping my husband alive, so we omitted this all together

mix dry stuff.  mix moist stuff.  mix them all together.  pour into a greased stoneware bread pan.  bake at 325ish for a little more than an hour....  my oven's on the fritz, so we assume it was somewhere between 325 - 350.

Sounds Yummy! Banana bread is my favorite and I love the healthy substitutions...especially the one that kept hubs alive and kicking!!!

LOL, you cook like I do! "Oh, that recipe sounds delicious...lemme just add a little of this and a little of that..." I rarely measure ingredients properly, but things always turn out good anyway. Now I'm craving banana bread!
