Other housekeeping details and what-nots
1.  I reserve the right to refuse anyone who has a history of multiple instances of poor communication and/or late sending.
2.  Please make at least one post on this thread so I know that youre getting all messages in the swap thread!
3.  Check the swap thread regularly. Feel free to discuss your OTT and post teasers about what youre working on.  Itll be fun to keep everyone guessing!
4.  Communication is essential!  If youre having issues with the swap, or if youre sending late (for whatever reasons), you must contact the organizer.  Poor communication will be noted in your feedback Sad

33  Easy Pineapple Banana Bread in Recipes and Cooking Tips by loves2experiment on: November 16, 2012 06:17:50 AM
I don't care much for bananas...but I adore banana bread! Cheesy

Last evening, we baked 4 loaves and the smell of banana bread baking in the oven is divine!  Banana bread keeps really well in the freezer (we wrap the individual loaves in 2 layers of plastic wrap, 1 layer of foil, and bag it in a zipper bag before throwing them in the freezer) and it's nice to have them on hand for breakfast or when someone stops by for tea Smiley  One of my favourite ways to eat them is to pop a slice of it in a toaster oven and add a smidge of butter.  Yum! 

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cups sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
3 eggs
1 1/4 cups canola oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
10 oz pineapple tidbits, drained
2 cups mashed ripe bananas

Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease 2 loaf pans and set aside.  In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.  In another bowl, whisk eggs, oil and vanilla together until frothy.  Add pineapple and bananas to wet mixture.  Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.  Fill loaf pans and bake for 65 minutes (note: my oven is pokey...it takes about 80 minutes or so to bake both loaves) or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

i received an awesome chunky house from coocoosnest over the weekend!  it fits in perfectly with my halloween decor/theme for this year Cheesy

along with the house, there was a note that reads:

"i regret to have to inform you that our dear sweet cousin, abigail, is dead.  she was caught casting spells in the basement of the local doctor.  he's nothing but a butcher if you ask me.  i've heard that he cuts bodies up to study and experiment on and that he especially likes to get his hands on a fresh witch.  oh i do hope that poor abigail has not met with such a horrible fate."

love it!  coocoosnest, thanks so much for swapping with me Cheesy
