I remember talking to Alice via phone in 2008 to ask her for a recipe for our family cookbook, “Tastes of the Teradas”. We had such a lovely conversation and finally she said she would share a recipe that her Grandmother got from a good friend. I have baked this delicious banana bread many times and you will find the recipe on page 36. I think of her each time I make it. She is remembered with love.
