Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe

Banana-Nut-Bread

 

My daughter begged for a huge bunch on bananas last week, with promises that she would eat every single one of them. Well, 6 days later, guess what? We had 4 very ripe bananas left, that were not going to get eaten. I hate wasting money so I had to think of something to do with them! It occurred to me that I have never tried to make banana nut bread! Now I have to admit something, I am NOT a baker. I don’t have a fancy mixer (although I do stare at them longingly in the store..) and I love my cakes from a box. When I looked up banana nut bread recipes a lot of them called for “cutting in cold butter” and other things that just weren’t going to work for me, and I got to thinking that it probably doesn’t for a lot of other people either, so I wanted to share this Super Easy Banana Nut Bread Recipe with you guys! It takes about 5 minutes of prep, and 25 minutes in the oven, that’s it!Continue reading

Nut Allergies

Ah so I took all three of my children to the allergist only to find out two have Nut Allergies. I thought oh my! I need to find a way to let others know. I found this site that translates your allergies other languages in case you travel. I decided I would make my own tags for my children just in case they weren’t able to communicate their allergy or the person they were with didn’t understand that nuts are everywhere and may not be as easy to spot as you would think.

I have three children and two are allergic to nuts. I know that most people can recognize the obvious appearance of nuts but most do not know that non obvious names for nuts. I also like having the tags laminated on my children’s bags just in case I forget to tell the people who take care of my children or if there is a new teacher. I send my children to a nut free school but you never know. I have make a card for you to place in a lunch box or a wallet. You can see the top 5 Allergies.
