Fragrances have the to ability to spark a memory or evoke an emotion. They can be a powerful tool in the hands of a skilled real estate agent. There are fragrances that remind me of my childhood, and baking with my great grandmother.

The recipe I’m sharing today is a modified version of the recipe my great grandmother used that I modified to my own preference. You can trade out the variety of nuts used; she preferred walnuts, but I like pecans. I’ve heard from others that they used chopped cashews for a fun twist.

I baked this banana bread before I left for a conference, and early reports from home indicate that it is already gone. Even our beloved Tucker cat enjoyed a piece while no one was looking. Fortunately, the aroma from the candle will last considerably longer than the bread!

  1. My grandmother always used walnuts, as did my mother, but I think pecans could be perfect for a moist banana bread too. Thanks for sharing this family recipe- I always love reading about how sights, sounds, and scents can transport someone back to wonderful memories! #client

  4. The crux of your writing whilst sounding reasonable originally, did not sit well with me after some time. Someplace within the paragraphs you actually were able to make me a believer but only for a very short while. I still have a problem with your jumps in logic and you might do well to fill in all those breaks. In the event you can accomplish that, I could definitely end up being amazed.
