Banana Bread Muffins

Over the weekend I had some ripe bananas, so naturally I made banana bread! But instead of putting them in a bread pan I grabbed some cupcake liners and put them in a cupcake pan. It was the first time I made banana bread that way and I have to admit, I love the little muffins! They are the perfect serving size. So I'd thought I'd share my favorite banana bread recipe that I've been using for years with you all today!

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2-4 mashed overripe bananas (I use whatever I have)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.

In a separate bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and mashed bananas until well blended.

Stir banana mixture into flour mixture. Stir just to moisten.

Fill lined cupcake pans until 3/4 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 17 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

I hope you all love them as much as we do! : )

Simply Create Thursdays #60

Hi all, happy Thursday! I'm sure you remember that Kayla, Jennifer, Ashley, and I decided to end The DIY'ers Link Party a few weeks back. While we had a ton of fun and loved the inspiration and creativity you all have shared, we decided that it just didn't fit in our schedules any longer.

However, I really have missed having a link party so I've decided to bring Simply Create Thursdays back! I can't wait to contiune to meet new bloggers and be inspired by all the creativity.

So without further adieu lets party!!

Gold Dot Table Runner

While decorating for Thanksgiving this year I kept it very simple using only gold and white. I also added red but only with the roses and candles. On our dinning room table I knew I wanted to have a table runner. So I looked at what materials I already had and I came up with the gold dot table runner. Here is how I made it:
