Pear-Banana Loaf

Time really flies. Apologies for the delay with the posts.

My husband and I have been surviving this bi-costal marriage with a lot of travel, laughter, and an interesting barter system. Barter typically refers to 'mutual exchange of goods and services'... But to keep this blog family friendly, what I mean is we exchange goods. He makes delicious turkey jerky while I make granola and an occassional treat. Hope you enjoy this recipe and laugh as you consider our crazy exotic life.
