Saturday Night Sugar High #4

This week I was ON-THE-HUNT for new ways to use up the brown and spotty bananas we always end-up with toward the end of the week!

I have a few GO-TO banana-based recipes that I use on a regular basis. Number 1 on the list is Grandma Deanna's Banana Bread....simple & sweet!  I LOVE letting the kids' help me with this one because it's one of the FIRST recipes I remember baking when I was a youngster ;)

Another Family-favorite around here is Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Pudding! It's AMAZING served hot, when the chocolate is all melty-schmelty right out of the oven...and it's just as delicious served cold the next day!
