Grandma’s Banana Bread

There must be a secret with grandmas.

They have the best no-fail recipes, they cook like pro chefs, and are always there to put it on the table with a smile.

Simply, they are magicians in the kitchen.

That brings me to my grandma.  She is 93 years old and is one of the coolest women I know.

She’s an amazing cook, but most importantly, she is the most thoughtful, giving, and positive person I have EVER met.  I always say, “If I could just be like her”…

She is definitely a role model.  Every time I talk with her she reminds me how grateful she is… how special each and every day is… and how blessed her life has been.

I thank God that I have had the opportunity to know her and know her heart.

I wish you could meet her to see  what I see, but instead you will just have to try

my Grandma’s Banana Bread.

Then, you will receive a little piece of her – a gift.
