Any of my friends from Wheaton or DC knows that whenever I go to Cleveland or my parents make a trip to visit me, undoubtedly there will be Grandma Irene’s banana bread waiting at the end of the journey! She’s been making it for as long as I can remember and there is nothing better than a piece of banana bread and a cup of coffee for breakfast in the morning (or anytime of day, for that matter).
