How many times do I hear myself say, "where is that big orange binder?" or "has anyone seen that big orange binder?" The big orange binder has been accumulating recipes, kinspiration & original recipe cards tucked into plastic sleeves for my entire-almost-forty year existence. "The Big Orange Binder" is an organization attempt. It's a recipe with a story neatly packaged in a place where I'll always be able to find the ever-elusive . . . Big Orange Binder.

Grandma Mills' Banana Bread
Remember the days when you'd exchange handwritten recipes? At my bridal shower, every guest brought a recipe card for some tried and true recipe that they could share so that I could start my own collection of recipes. I just got a little nostalgic.
This is Grandma "D"'s banana bread recipe. Simple. Fast. Easy. And a historical piece. Does ANYONE know what Oleo is anymore? (Just substitute butter or crisco, ya yuppy!) This card is probably 50 years old. Grandma D died just recently. May 1st would have been her 103rd birthday!
I'm glad her legendary banana bread can live on through the Big Orange Binder!
