42  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

I needed to produce a medium crafted item for a white elephant exchange and after much deliberation, here's what I came up with Cheesy



Thread basted quilt sandwich:

Close-ups of hand quilted sections:

After handwashing and a quick tumble in the dryer...all nice and puckery:

Binding (yup, a different fabric for each edge):

Interior section of the journal:

Inside cover of the journal:

Stitched spine of the journal:

Additional views of the journal:

The cardstock pages were intentionally left blank so that the recipient can do whatever she wants with the journal Cheesy
