Broads On The Bake, Banana Bread

  Who doesn't have the bowl of bananas on the kitchen table? 

Bananas are a favorite in my household.  As quickly as I buy, they're gone.  Once in awhile, though, we allow them to ripen that one day too many, and no one will eat them.   Here's the best recipe I've found.

Three Way Banana Bread

 
Ingredients

*  1/2 cup Butter Flavored Crisco or butter

*  1 cup sugar

*  2 eggs

*  1 1/2 cup mashed, rip bananas - 4 medium

*  1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice

*  2 cup unsifted flour

*  1 teaspoon baking soda

*  1/2 teaspoon salt

*  1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

*  1/2 teaspoon lemon zest (optional)

*  1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Cream together butter and sugar, then beat in eggs.  Stir in banana and lemon juice.  Mix together flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, and rind; blend into creamed mixture.  Stir in nuts.

For bread - Turn into greased loaf pan and bake at 350 degrees for 55 min.  Cool.

For muffins - Spoon into 24 greased muffin cups.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.  Cool.

For coffee cake - Turn into greased 9" square pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until cake is done.  Slice two bananas and arrange slices over top of cake.  Sprinkle with a topping of :
*  1/2 cup packed brown sugar
*  2 tablespoons butter (melted)
*  1/4 cup flaked coconut

Broil for 2 minutes or until topping is bubbly and lightly browned.

Enjoy!

Fantasy Writing, Vampires, And A Dash Of Romance...




The title of this book is somewhat deceiving as the story is told from Michael Allen's perspective. Beginning with his normal young adult life in Chicago and taking the reader through his brutal transition to vampire, this novel continues into the present day where our hero leads a solitary life. Haunted and tortured by the memories surrounding the night he was bitten, Michael maintains a lonely existence, fighting against 'The Beast' and hating the very nature of what he is.

When Michael begins hearing a strange voice and finds himself inexplicably drawn to Kiara, a local young woman with a life almost as strange as his own, a longing takes root deep inside him - a longing that could end in disaster. What Michael doesn't know is that Kiara has secrets of her own, some she doesn't even know she keeps. Together, Michael and Kiara discover the peace of self-acceptance through their unconditional acceptance of one anot…

Broads On A Budget: Fresh, Healthy, and Within The Budget!

Lately, I've seen a few news segments citing the higher cost in buying fresh produce and healthy foods compared with processed, prepared, packaged, but far from healthy products.  This caught my attention.  Eating for health is... well, sort of my goal.  I want my family (and myself!) to be healthy, but what I want most is to enjoy my food while feeling great about it's health and nutrition benefits.

We can watch every cooking show on the cable channels, read each new cooking magazine with eager determination, and lose an hour (or two!) on Pinterest boards, but if we can't afford the grocery bill to create all those wonderful meals - it's all a wash.  So...is it possible to prepare healthy meals with fresh ingredients AND stick to a budget?  Broads everywhere know the answer is YOUUUU BETCHA!

One issue I struggled with was meal-plan-cohesiveness.  In other words, creating my weekly meal plan around my fresh ingredients on hand to avoid waste.  (Who else has cringed i…

Braised Broads

Homemade Yogurt!Yes, that's right, homemade yogurt. This is something I've been wanting to try for a while now. I mean, I've been making my own detergent and started making my own granola, why not yogurt too? So this started me browsing through all of internet land looking for a recipe I liked.

  I guess I really shouldn't say recipe, as this implies differing ingredients.  The recipe for yogurt is pretty universal: milk and starter.  Starter being yogurt with active cultures in it.  If it has it, it will say somewhere on the container.  If you do not have this you will not make yogurt, you'll only make milk that has been heated, left to sit, and cooled.  Not very tasty.  Now there can be additions like dry milk powder or even gelatin for extra thickening if you're using, say, skim milk.  

     The biggest difference really is how many ways people make it.  They find what works for them.  Some make it using a crockpot, their oven, a heating pad, a cooler wit…
