This banana bread recipe is awesome and it’s a Cooking Light recipe. The serving size says that you can get 16 servings out of this. I kind of find that hard to believe. You’re going to want to slice these really thick! It calls for a glaze on top, but I didn’t make that.

I’ve actually never had the dessert bananas foster before. I’ve seen it made on Food Network, but never had no desire to make it. The first 4 ingredients in this recipe are from that dessert. I saw the ingredient rum in the recipe and thought that this would make for a really good banana bread recipe. The sugar and butter melt together to form a caramel type sauce. Yum! I think this recipe is a keeper.

Do you like my plate? I got it on sale in the clearance section at Pier 1. My mom works part time there so she gets a 25% discount. I got 3 other plates too. My mom asked me what I’m going to do with all the plates I have (I have a big pantry downstairs where I keep them all) and she suggested that we can  use a different plate for each person at the wedding. Ha ha! That would actually be quite funny. No, I don’t have that many plates yet either. Maybe someday I will. I love collecting plates now.
