I was given this recipe in culinary school by one of my professors, and I can't get enough. This is her written biography...'This is my mom's dense, excellent and definitely unhealthy banana nut bread recipe. This is great at parties, but hazardous at home. Use any type of fat in place of the butter, such as shortening or oil. It works with brown or white sugar". I followed the recipe to the exact measurements and I will have to admit that I almost ate the whole loaf at one sitting. HAZARDOUS!

It gets its name because it includes foods from regions around the Mediterranean Sea, like Greece, Italy, and Spain. Vegetables, whole grains, legumes, fish, and healthy fats (such as olive […]
