Chocolate Banana Bread
Happy New Year and let's hope this year is a better one. I wanted to thank those who responded with advice about my shoulder. I think it helps you mentally when you realize that you are not the only person that has experienced the misery. I thank you for the helpful tips and encouragement. I would share a piece of this chocolate banana bread if I could but I can at least pass on the recipe.
