Just sharing a quote from one of my favorite authors, Richard Paul Evans. I still collect all those quotes from his several books and he always says, “you are free to share”.


Good morning Saturday 🙂

It’s a lovely, sunny morning and mom urged me to go out and buy ingredients for Ginatan, that sweet Filipino dessert complete with sticky rice balls, sweet potato, taro and Saba bananas. She was craving for it but I was so lazy to go out this late because of the traffic. I baked her a simple banana bread instead, using four medium Lakatan bananas left over from yesterday. You don’t need a mixer to do this.


Here’s the recipe if you want to try it with just the basic ingredients:

3-4 ripe medium-sized bananas
1/3 cup melted butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 beaten egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. banana extract
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F) or 175 degree (C). With a large spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas. Then add the sugar, egg, vanilla and banana extract into the mixture. Sprinkle with baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix together. Add the flour last.

Bake for an hour. Let cool and serve.
