Raise your hand if the Christmas season gives you a sensory overload.

Now don’t get me wrong… it’s not a bad thing.  I love every. little. thing. about Christmas from the trees to the sparkling lights and all the amazing savory and sweet treats.  What’s especially good for me… all that goodness decreases my appetite.  I’m probably one of the few who lose a pound or two at Christmas.  Before you get all jealous or start rolling your eyes I need to confess… I can get in big trouble about the time Valentine’s Day rolls around. Yup… that’s my season to over indulge in everything chocolaty and sweet.

Speaking of sweet treats… we’re drooling over these:

      Banana bread is my favorite Ashley! Thanks so much for joining in the fun here!
      Happy New Year!

      • Shirlene says

        I make this recipe and have found it to be so easy! It is also easy to substitute the miracle whip with sour cream or apple sauce as well. I also found that I like to use less than what the recipe calls for because I use extra banana’s that have been frozen. YUMMY. By the way the picture of this bread is almost perfect , wish mine turned out that pretty. Have a blessed day!
        Also one of my favorite things to eat any time of the year 🙂

        • Diane says

          Shirlene… it’s great to know about the substitutions. I never have Miracle Whip in my cupboard/fridge but almost always good sour cream.
          Good thing our recipes taste great even if they aren’t picture perfect. 😉 Thanks for sharing your tips!!!!

  2. Thanks so much for featuring my cupcakes! I’m having a craving now… 😉

    • Diane says

    Thanks for reminding me that Valentine’s Day is lurking to do more damage LOL. I think you’re awesome to post such wonderful treats for us week after week. Pun intended! 🙂

    • Diane says

      HeeHee!!!! 🙂 😉
      Valentine’s Day is the worst for me. Oh my goodness… I can breeze through the holidays… but give me a box of chocolate and I’m totally undone. 🙂
