  5. That looks so delicious!! I'm not a big fan of carrots, but I'm thinking their taste will be buried beneath the good stuff, right? Thanks for the recipe!

  26. I never seem to have any too ripe bananas any more. I have everything else. Bookmarking this one and hoping for those bananas.

  27. This bread is so yummy! I love the idea of taking 3 things that are individually wonderful in bread/cake and putting them all together. I made it last weekend, but I reduced the oil to 1/2 Cup and added an extra 1/2 Cup of bananas. It was so moist and delicious, everyone loved it. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

  33. I made this bread last week...and it was gobbled right up by my little turkeys! My 3 year old won't eat a vegetable, but I got thrills knowing he was eating TWO veggies with this bread. I shared a loaf with my 'second' family - my best girlfriend's family - and they loved it too! Thank you so much for the recipe! Very easy, VERY YUMMY!
