blueberry banana bread

This banana bread reminds me of home. My mom makes banana bread using this recipe. The recipe comes from a cookbook I got from my mom.  She got it from my grandmother. It is one of those books where the pages are worn, torn, and stained. All signs of a good cookbook.

Mr. J and I moved into our new home this past weekend. Our first home.  It is a bit of a mess still but I love being there. I love fixing it up. I love finding the best spot for all of our belongings.

Since we have left the apartment he proposed to me in and the apartment we came home to as a married couple in, I wonder what memories we will make in our new house.  Our home. 

Of course I know there will be plenty of recipe making, cooking and baking to come. We just have to get the kitchen put together first.

    PS... the prize you won from me will be shipped out from Good Cook next week. Do you have some way of collecting it if it's sent to your old address. I don't want you to miss out.

  6. I think one of the quickest ways to make a new house a home is to bake in it. Funny but I love banana bread and I love blueberry bread but I've never combined the two. But now I'm going to!
