I have played around with many different types of banana bread recipes over the years, swapping out ingredients for whatever I happen to have available in the house (or not) and then perhaps combining them with some cool new baking tips or techniques I've either seen, heard or read about.
Which also means that my banana breads never really taste quite the same and, well, baking IS an exact science...DANGIT!!!...and not very conducive to spur-of-the-moment...wonder what happens when I do THIS?!?...sort of recipe mash-ups, either.
Oh and, around here, bananas usually don't last long enough to over-ripen.
Yesterday, we had one and I'm all...what am I going to do with one over-ripe banana?!?...while staring at the two very ripe pears sitting right next to it just BEGGING to be mashed-up...and then I remembered we almost NEVER run out of any chocolate chips, either.
