This recipe has been in my family since before I can remember. As a child my dad would bake banana bread on the weekends with the old bananas we didn’t eat. I always loved waking up to the smell of fresh banana bread. It really is a versatile recipe so feel free to try your favorite nuts or candy as a mix in!

While attending college for Culinary Arts, Hospitality Management & Kinesiology, I also worked as a baker at the Curious Fork in Solana Beach, CA. We specialized in gluten-free baking. I love baking and decorating pastries; making delicious desserts that are free of allergens. Although that will not be the focus of my blog, I figured I could share some of the tricks I have learned working in a gluten-free restaurant. I got my love of food from my family. My grandmother is Lebanese and my grandfather is Italian. These two cultures have greatly inspired my passion for food. I began my Book OBSESSION in high school. It all started with The Hunger Games, Twilight, Divergent & The Maze Runner. I love keeping track of what I have read and my thought which has inspired Books & Baking.
