chocolate chip banana bread! say WHAT?!?

hi happy blog land! it's day closer to you know what!!! you all know by now, the LOVE i share in my heart with my weekends!  
first and foremost
thank you, ALL, for your warmest thoughts, prayers and wishes. It means so much to me, that
so many of you have emailed me or posted such sweet comments.
please continue to pray for my sister. (her name is laurie, btw)....

i have had this post waiting in blog land for almost two weeks now, and i started it and never finished.

i BAKED some lovin yumminess! easy on the belly, not so much on the calories....there IS, however a FRUIT in here, so we will say, it's a somewhat healthy choice.....remember......EVERYTHING is GOOD in moderation!

chocolate chip banana bread

2 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 smashed bananas....(i have used 4 before)
1/2 cup oil ( i use canola)
2 eggs
1 cup chocolate chips

preheat oven to 350'. grease bottom of loaf pan. (i use two smaller pans, not the itty bitty size, but not the traditional loaf pan). in a large bowl mix all ingredients except chocolate chips. blend in chips. pour batter into prepared pan. bake about 65 minutes for large loaf, or about 20-25 for two smaller size. my pans are also the dark nonstick, so i do reduce the oven temp to 325', and they do bake quicker. cool, remove from pan and enjoy! i love these when they are warm, ooey and gooey!

my question of the day:
for those of you who have re-designed your blog....was it a difficult process?
i am thinking that the blog needs an overhaul......
just a thought.
i will add it to the terri-do list that is ever so long!

big hugs and thanks so much for keeping my family in your heart and prayers~

Oh hun, my thoughts are with you!

On a different note- I've done small changes over time... it worked for me because I tend to not have a lot of extra time and get a bit of anxiety if I do too much at once. So maybe try that to make it a little easier?

Have a good night! :)

About the blog redo - you could start small with a free blog template - try or The Cutest Blog site also has a "secrets" page that explains how to customize or even design your own page - in really easy to understand instructions {I think I may try this sometime...} good luck.
