1 cup sugar
1 well beaten egg
1 cup flour
1 tea.spoon baking powder
1 tea baking soda
1 tea vanilla
1 cup ripe mashed banana
optional..1/2 cup chopped walnuts

i make one reg loaf and one small with this(small is for next door neighbor)


Ilove this childs dresser,even without a mirror.My plans are to find a old distressed beveled mirror and take this to Arden Antique fair with me.Its hand made and oh sooo loved by some special child.

I found this great primitive wall cupboard the other day and bought it.The thing i didnt count on is not having wall space for it.My girlfriend suggested i place it on the wall going down to the first floor.The staircase is winding and the wall she suggested is seen from the top floor, so i asked hubby to hold it up so i could check it out.I liked it.It filled a vacant wall that i didnt even realize i had.Leave it to her to know the best place to hang it.The long oak shutters are from my trip this fall to Harpers Ferry.Ilove them and even tho they are longer then my window and do not close,I still liked how they looked hanging there.
