4H Banana Bread
Of all the hundreds of Banana Bread recipes I've tried, THIS one gets top billing. The recipe is easy and has simple, everyday ingredients. It doesn't rely on sour cream or cream cheese to make it moist. I think that bit of milk really does something special. I made this as written, except I used butter and added a Tsp of cinnamon and vanilla extract. I had four large over-ripe bananas I needed to use, but 3 yielded a cup and a half of mash, so that's all I used. I think I could've added the fourth with even better results. I cooked in a 5x9 loaf pan at 350 for 20 mins, until it got nicely browned, then turned the oven down to 325 and it took another 55 minutes for it to finish. We've already eaten half of it, it's super moist, holds together well and has a lovely chewy crust. You can't go wrong with this one.

Angie's Perfect Dinner Rolls
Made these exactly as written at Thanksgiving and they were a hit! Nobody ever fills up on bread on Thanksgiving, but all of these rolls were GONE and people wanted MORE. I have to admit, I took all the credit :) Give yourself TIME to let these rise - don't cut corners. The dough is beautiful and light and the taste is superb. I used a hand mixer to beat in the sugar, eggs, soft butter and salt. It worked well and went really fast. Although, I didn't need the full 7 cups of flour. Maybe since I used bread flour? 6 was plenty and I liked that this bread rose in the same bowl it was mixed in. No fussy oiling and rolling and such. These didn't get super golden, just a light brown - but not a big deal. Just don't overcook them, thinking they're not done - the time is right. Next time, I'm going to divide the dough and make a loaf of bread - I'd be curious how that works.

Spiced Eggplant Indian Style
This is a good, easy recipe to use up eggplant. In an attempt to keep this low-fat, I did not add the clarified butter. I cooked the onions and tomatoes with Pam butter flavored spray, added garlic and a bit of salt. I also used much more spice than called for. Served it over brown rice and it really was tasty and very healthy. The leftovers were even better.
