Banana Spice Bread

When I lived in Jamaica at Knox College in the 1980's I fell in love with Banana Bread. One of my staff members Mrs. Mc Namee used to make the most delicious banana bread. 

Today, every time I bite into a slice of banana Bread I see her loving, happy face.

Years later while I was at a BK conference I was told that a secret ingredient in cooking food was your state of mind while you were cooking. If you were joyful and happy while cooking it would come out in your food.

Mrs. Mac poured a lot of Jamaican love in her banana bread.

So as you do this bread fill it with love, peace, and joy.This is a Watkins recipe.
