Ever since I have moved in to my new place (yes I know it has only been 2 weeks), I feel a bit more... "grown up" if you will. Which is a
My future in-laws visited on Sunday to help move the rest of Tony's things into our new place. So to thank them, I decided to bake them something! Since we had 4 very ripe banana's just chillin in our fruit basket, and since Tony's mom has a gluten allergy, I decided to try a gluten free banana bread recipe.

So what's the verdict? Well... Tony, his mom, and his dad all said they were good and that they really enjoyed them. Tony said you couldn't even tell that they were gluten free! Either they were just being sensitive to my new found love for baking or they actually really did enjoy them. Either or, I'll take the compliment. :o)
