I just came home from my moms a little while ago. I was staying with her for a bit while her fiance' is out on his new job. So lately she has been pretty lonely. So when I went to her place, she greeted me with this bread that she said she whipped together out of her Banana bread recipe, but just replaced the bananas with strawberries. And it was really quite good, Not as dense as I anticipated. And literally bursting with strawberry flavor! So from my mom to your family, here's her Strawberry bread recipe. :)
