Diva Banana Bread

I . LOVE . Banana Nut Bread. So I'm always looking for a good recipe. I ran across this Banana Bread recipe and loved it... with some additions that make this bread totally diva.
*Before baking, mix in CHOCOLATE CHIPS and nuts of your choice.
*After pouring it into your pan, sprinkle the top with a thin layer of cinnamon/sugar combo.

Food for thought: I don't know about you, but I was raised thinking that it's a treat to have homemade bread for breakfast (banana nut being my favorite). The more I bake, the more I realize that "breakfast breads" and "cake" are the same thing. So why is it not "ok" in my head to feed kids cake for breakfast? I've seen it at the hospital and I may have said some not nice things.

Body Warming Tomato Soup

This sherried tomato soup warmed my body. I'm not a huge tomato soup fan but this is da-lish. Go on the light side with the sugar. I went heavy and it was a little too sweet. You can always add more but it's hard to remove sugar from soup.

Dear Mrs. Ree Drummond,
Thank you for all you've done for my taste buds and kitchens around the world. Thank you for being bold about the Southern style of cooking. I'm sure you've endured harsh words concerning calories, fat, grease, sodium, etc. But I say, bring it on. It makes me happy!
