My Aunt's Banana Bread
I used 4 bananas and added vanilla as another reviewer did. When using vinegar in baking recipes I think it should be noted that when advised to set aside it is at the very minimum for 5 minutes I usually make sure I give the vinegar 10 minutes to infuse with the ingredients. I wish we would remember to say what type of pan we are using too and not just the size. I find my banana breads work best in some sort of metal pan and not the glass or non-stick pans. I wish I could give 5 stars as written but would give 4 1/2 stars with the suggestion of another banana and vanilla. I actually went searching for this recipe today because I forgot to save it in my recipe box.

Lance's French Onion Soup
Had left over french onion roast I had made the day before and never made french onion soup. I used the juice and onions left over from the roast and added beef stock and onions. This was quite easy and instead of wine I used beer. I will be making again love,love, love recipes that let me use my leftovers.

Zucchini Summer Soup
This was really really good I adjusted it for my 4 qt slow cooker. I put the chicken broth in the slow cooker on high while I started to prepare the remaining ingredients. I dissolved sugar in a small cup of the hot broth and lemon juice and then added back to the slow cooker. I used a pint of my own canned tomatoes which I put a tablespoon of lemon juice in that when I can. I used 3 teaspons of dried dill weed and 1 1/2 teaspoons of dried tarragon and 1 tablespoon of onion powder and used 1 tablespoon of freeze dried garlic. Cooked on high in slow cooker and was ready in 3 hours I have 4 stars because the parmesan to me added a grittiness I didn't like and also think it's better to peel tomatoes when used in any recipe. (quickest easiest way is to put in boiling water no more than 1 minute and immediatly put in ice bath and skins should come right off) Will make agein with either all fresh ingredients or with my modified slow cooker recipe....
