Day #30 and Withdrawl

So I am having withdrawl, from cooking, baking, etc.  It's something I do everyday, something I like doing everyday.  Cooking with the electric skillet just isn't the same.  Today I asked the best neighbor in the world to borrow her oven.  I missed using the mixer, playing with my measuring cups, and the smell of baking!   Kinda sad...

But I made this awesome banana bread...yes I have made banana bread before, but not this recipe.  It's really easy and smells so yummy.  I won't be able to eat it, allergic to bananas, but I had fun making it!
