When I was looking for a recipe for Banana Bread a friend of mine came to the rescue with her favourite. She knew we were chocoholics, so this recipe was right up our street. When Gina was taken from us suddenly, it seemed fitting we should rename this after her.  Thanks to Gina’s family for their permission to do so. Gina remains a bright light in a dark sky and a constant reminder of how important our friends are.
