Big Joe Shares Lela’s Banana Nut Bread Recipe



It’s a wonder my friend Amy Robinson from Shark River has time to submit a recipe let alone cook. Amy is a very busy mom and also the COO for Holiday Express, a 501 (c) (3) charity I have been involved with for many years.

Amy schedules over 50 events over a 31-day period when Holiday Express takes her show on the road to places like soup kitchens, hospices, development centers and other places in New Jersey that wouldn’t have any type. holiday celebration.

It’s a great organization and Amy does a fantastic job. Amy is also a bright, witty and fun good friend. We have shared a lot of laughs over the years. Amy passed this recipe on to us from her grandmother Lela. Many thanks to Amy. This banana bread is a number one hit on the charts!
