Post #2: Peanut Butter Banana Bread

Well, I wanted to break in my blog, and I saw the browning bananas on my counter and knew my obvious choice.  The only thing about banana bread that I don't like, is that it always looks ugly.  I have to say that this version of banana bread is possibly the best I have ever tasted, but the photos were all so boring.  The one posted is the best I could come up with!  Ha ha.  Maybe I will make that my mission: finding a way to make banana bread look appealing in a photo.  Anyway, enjoy the recipe.  This is the first time I have ever put peanut butter in my banana bread, but I have to tell you, it is amazing!  Peanuts and bananas go so well together!  Give it a try!
