I think though, this is the fastest I have been to make one of her recipes! She posted this on Friday and I just had to make them today (even though it's a very very humid and hot day!)

Oh, these look yummy! You've inspired me to bake a little...extra dirty dishes or not. I have two loaves of banana nut bread baking and smelling wonderful right now :)
