You just made this look so easy that as soon as my kitchen is back in order, I'll make some. Ugh! I seriously have no kitchen. Demo starts next week!

I love banana bread... the sad thing is bananas in our house don't reach the over-ripe stage. Hahaha! My boys consume a lot. Well, all of us do. We love bananas. xoxo

I always have over ripe bananas and end up making a smoothie out of it because I never have the right ingredients for a banana bread. I have made a few attempts before but I have never come across one with cream cheese, I should try it. Is that why it looks lighter you think?

You have a very lovely blog, and your family pictures are so adorable.
