I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Banana Walnut Bread with Ricotta

This is one moist banana bread

1/4 cup melted butter
3 ripe bananas
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup ricotta
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1  1/2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
A pinch or 2 of nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Mash the bananas and add the melted butter and egg. 
Next add the sugar, ricotta and vanilla. 

In a large bowl sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg. Combine these dry ingredients with the banana mixture and fold in the walnuts.

Pour (or dollop) into a parchment lined 9 X 5" loaf pan.

Place on bottom rack in a 350 F oven for 65-75 minutes. 
A cake tester should come out clean.

Cool 20 minutes before removing from pan, then cool completely on rack before slicing.
