Banana Crumb Muffins
I had a couple of bananas sitting here, looking icky, and thought they needed to become muffins. I found this recipe and gave it a try. I followed it exactly as is, only adding some chopped walnuts and doubling the topping (just in case). These are AMAZING. They're a bit like coffee cake, and not dreadfully sweet at all. Love them! My BF is coming over soon and I can't wait to get his opinion; I think it'll match mine. Great recipe! (Oh wait, I did add a splash of buttermilk because I was one banana short and needed a little extra moisture - still awesome!)

No Bake Cookies V
I grew up on this cookie, so making them always zips me right back to my childhood. Mom has been gone for years, and this year my sister asked me to make some for Thanksgiving; they were gone in no time! The thing to remember with these cookies is that you are basically making fudge with oatmeal in it. Having it come to the FULL boil, and letting it boil long enough, are crucial to them setting up properly. If you're in doubt you've cooked it long enough, use a candy thermometer and make sure you're in the 235-240 ballpark and you should be fine. Enjoy!!

Calico Beans
My mom used to make this when I was a child, only her recipe was labeled "One Pot Dinner". This is a phenomenal dish for those winter months. I do believe that the 2 cups of brown sugar are bit much, and use half of that and it's plenty sweet enough. Mom always added just a wee bit of liquid smoke to it, and I find it so much better that way. I suppose you could substitute your favorite bbq sauce for the ketchup for the same effect. I make it in the crockpot, on low for 4 hours or so; it's a HUGE hit at potluck suppers or barbecues :)
