Spread a bit of butter on my Mom’s Banana Bread for a delicious mid-afternoon snack, or even breakfast!

It is getting windy and cold here in North Dakota. Growing up in New Hampshire, I actually enjoy the cold. The wind is a whole different story, though! Brrr. I remember cold days walking in the snow and ice home from the bus stop, and entering the house to smell a freshly baked loaf of banana bread. It always chased the cold away.

Now that we walk to and from school in some pretty bitter winds, I hope to create similar memories of warmth and comfort for my kids. So I pulled out my mom’s banana bread recipe again this week. This is one recipe I will never try to alter or improve on. It’s perfect the way it is. However, you can always add a little more yummy with chocolate chips, or as I did this week butterscotch chips.

You can see in this Instagram pic just how well loved this recipe is. 

Now if you’ve been around awhile, I have shared the recipe in the past, back near the beginning of our Foodie Friday parties – but I had no pictures! So here’s the update with pics so you can pin it to come back whenever you feel like baking a little comfort in your home.
