Banana Bread

I should have this banana bread recipe memorized considering the number of times I have made it. Yet, whenever I see brown bananas on the counter, I feel compelled to pull out my trusty recipe. At least this is one recipe no one in my family complains about. As an added bonus, the recipe is from Cooking Light, so I guess I can’t feel to bad about making it so often.
