"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
Lori White's Zucchini Bread and Mom's Banana Bread.
It has a lot of sugar but it make a nice crust that says "eat me!"
When Lori makes it, she frosts it with cream cheese frosting.
