ginny's kitchen

one of the most treasured gifts i received for my wedding was my grandma ginny's recipes. she compiled a book especially for me with all of her favorite sides, entrees, and desserts. and take my word for it, this woman knows how to cook. 

thanks to ginny's recipes, i was able to whip up some last minute loaves of banana bread for our yw activity on wednesday.

there is nothing better than a warm slice of ginny's buttered banana bread.

1/2 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup mashed bananas
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp. lemon juice
2 cups flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/4 t. salt
1/2 cup nuts (optional)

Cream margarine and sugar. Add eggs and beat. Add bananas, milk and lemon juice. Sift dry ingredients and add lemon juice. Sift dry ingredients and add to banana mixture. Add nuts.  Bake in well-greased 8x4x3-inch loaf pan for 1 hour at 350 degrees.  Enjoy!

a day for birthdays

today is a special day for my sweet cousin tessa....

this girl always has a smile on her face
{i think it runs in the family}
and is such a good big sister.
happy birthday tessa!

it is also a special day for my boy....

 his 3-month birthday is bittersweet
considering he's not really a newborn anymore.
it sorta makes me sad...
but then i get over it when he gives us his graham grin
which is the cutest thing in the world.
