FREE Illustrated Banana Bread Recipe

In January of 2009 I shared a family recipe that has been passed on from my great-grandmother, to my mom and then on to me and my 4 siblings. I created an illustrated version of the banana bread recipe to share with my family and had it printed on tea towels for Christmas gifts a few years ago.

I have now updated the image and created a square version and portrait version to share as a gift for you!

Banana Bread
I use a 16×4 long loaf pan by Wilton as a “Pullman Loaf Pan”

I printed one and put it in an 8×10 frame for my kitchen, so I can easily access the recipe when we need a little comfort.

In hard times like these, slowing down and getting back to the basics like baking seems like a perfect thing to do.


You can download both versions for free to use for personal use:

Squam 2016

Fall Squam 2014

I’m heading back to Squam Lake this week. My first trip was in 2011. At the time, I traveled with my good friend Eva. We both had dreamed of attending Squam Art Workshops and I thought it was never going to happen.  We made the leap and signed up. It was magical.

This marks my 5th trip and I am bringing along another good friend, Marceline. She has always wanted to attend and I know she is going to love it and be so inspired by the community of amazing women and the the natural surroundings. My wish is that her soul is filled to the brim with creativity and gratitude.
