Taste and see ....

Taste and see that the Lord is good Thursdays! ( Ps 34:8)

Okay I now have a title for every Thursday, I'm excited about this day. I'm planning on putting up a fun recipe here that I love, most of them are probably going to come from dear friends or family... or a favorite from a cookbook. Let me tell you I love cookbooks, my new favorite one is the Ivy Bakeshop cookbook. It's the bomb! Ha Ha just had to use some 1995 jargon from my senior year.

The recipe for today is from my friend Donna. Let me brag on her and then I'll share her sweet treat with you. Donna is a friend, like a sister to me. I would say we kinda have the relationship of kindred spirits. She and I are a lot alike and different at the same time. She is wonderful though, someone who loves Jesus with all her heart, soul, strength kind of person. I want that... you know to love God like that. I love how she is such a giver of her time... she and I share in this area we both are involved in many things, almost like full time job things but not getting paid jobs :)

Thanks Donna for being a leader of Bible studies, a Titus 2 woman and a purpose driven woman of God. If you don't know her, you should she is a real blessing to all with whom she associates. I wanna be like that. Thanks for using your gifts to bless others. I could go on and on, I could also go on and on about many others too, that are like Donna. Maybe I will, another Thursday.

Okay so here's the wondeeefulll recipe:

Best ever Banana Bread- from Donna

1st set aside 1/2 cup milk and 1 T vinegar. Mix and let sit

Cream 3 Cups sugar, 2 Sticks of margarine, add 4 eggs. Then add 2 1/2 cups of flour
1tsp baking soda
1tsp salt
2 1/2 Cups of mashed banana
Now add the first thing you did, the vinegar mixture. It will look curdy. (That's a good thing)

Grease 3 pans
Now put mixture in the pans and top with chocolate chips... i like lots
Makes 3 loaves
Bake @ 350* for 55 minutes

Side note: I like to bake one at a time... works better in my oven. The choco chips end up going to the bottom of pan so when you flip it out you will see. This is divine!

Thanks for the comment, Tara. And laundry is my least favorite "today" task of all. It's never done!! :)

I will have to try this, Tara! I tasted it at MOPS, and although I'm not a big chocolate lover, it was really yummy! EVERYONE was raving about it! I wonder if I could just add choco chips to my "JUST ADD WATER" from the package banana bread mix? hee hee!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. This recipe looks easy, which means even I can do it. But seriously, I am all for quick and easy because though I love to cook, I rarely have a lot of time to do so. Thanks:)
