I'm a real cook now

There comes a time in every cooks life when they become official.  They get a KitchenAid mixer.  I got mine last week.  A gift from Father-in-Law sho said my old mixer was not cutting it.  And he would know, since he used it to make us some delicious white chocolate and strawberry mousse last time he was up.

So, in honor of the new mixer, and because I was dying to use it, the first thing I cooked was some homemade banana bread compliments of the recipe book of family recipes given to me by my in-laws.  Here's the recipe in case you were wondering:
