I started cooking around 12 years old or so, and always loved to read cookbooks trying to learn new recipes. I found a simple banana bread recipe when I was about 18 years old and preferred it over any other. Over the years I changed it up making it super moist by using Carnation, brown sugar, and my special favorite vanilla blend (thanks to my mother-in-law Ama Luz). My husband and I compete with each other a lot in the kitchen. He swore that his recipe for bread was better than mine. Now, he promises me that mine is the best!
