•WHY I LOVE IT: I love images of people with food...that are not just the same boring thing with hands cupped around the food. I love the colors in this photo, her clothing.

Overall, I think this is a beautiful image, and it made me stop and take a second look.

Rum-Coconut Banana Bread This made my house smell wonderful tonight and I did eat a nice piece. IT is really good. The coconut slices give it texture. I would probably sprinkle some sugar on top next time to give it a caramelized coat on top.
