  1. I love the smell of baking banana bread. I have never used apple sauce in it before and look forward to trying a new way of making a classic.

  2. An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a friend who had been doing a little homework on this. And he in fact ordered me breakfast because I discovered it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk about this subject here on your blog.
