Syracuse Salt Potatoes
first, i want to say thank you for the recipe. I've never measured in terms of cups, it's always been a quarter pound of salt to every pound of potatoes. For all the people saying that these are regular boiled potatoes, they are too salty, not salty enough, etc.. the purpose of the salt is not so much to make the potatoes salty as it is to lower the boiling point of the water. With the different boiling point, it makes the flesh of the potato creamier than normal boiling and less starchy. As for the saltiness/needs salt problem, you may need to adjust the amount of water that you use. It doesn't specify in the recipe, but for this amount of salt and potatoes, you need 3 quarts of water. If you aren't using enough, you might as well eat the salt shaker and skip the potatoes

Banana Banana Bread
When I first read all the reviews, I was afraid to try this, but I gave it a whirl anyway. I sifted all the flour and I mixed all the dry ingredients with a whisk to make it lighter. I creamed the butter and brown sugar until it was lighter in color, then added eggs and bananas.. I mixed the wet into the dry using my whisk until it was just incorporated.. I made muffins using a large muffin tin. Oh my heck, these were delicious.. Light fluffy little pieces of Heaven. I ended up with 9 costco-sized muffins and once they cooled, I glazed them with a vanilla glaze. Thanks Shelley, these were awesome!

Quick and Easy Pancit
Growing up, I called my mom's pancit panshi... anyway, you get the picture.. i never liked the stuff.. until now. I made this recipe for my mom and she is a convert. She actually made this the other day and almost cried because it's the first time in 20 years i've eaten pancit she has made. Thanks Heather!
