  1. This looks so yummy and easy. I'll be trying this one soon.

  2. I am honored that you posted my Frosted Banana Bread Bars on your blog, and made them look so good! You have a special gift for food photography, Suzie. I continue to make these bars, and guests continue to ask for them (especially my grandson). They're a real favorite at our house. Because of these bars, I ALWAYS have frozen bananas in my freezer, so I am able to make them at a moments notice.
