Red, White, and Blueberry Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
This was a very simple, festive, and tasty salad to make! Instead of sugar, I used about 3-5 tablespoons of honey, and mixed with equal parts lemon and lime juice. The honey created lots of "juice" for the fruit. The bananas did go a bit soggy after a few hours, but not as fast as they would have without the citrus. Pineapple or mango would work great as well. As long as the fruit is light enough in color, it makes a great contrast for the berries. This is also great served over pound cake, shortcake, angel food cake, etc, and topped with whipped cream. Yum!!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
This is such a simple recipe, that I had it memorized after making it only twice! People have raved about this recipe and will often request me to make it. The bread is so moist and the banana flavor is amazing! You'll need about 6-8 bananas for this (depending on size), and you'll want them to be as dark brown as possible. The darker the banana, the sweeter it is. The recipe is simple enough that you can afford to experiment with it. I have added pecans, walnuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, chocolate chips, vanilla, etc (not all at once, of course). =) You can also prep the ingredients beforehand; I do this when I'm short on time so I can bake the bread just before I serve it, and I can tell people it's "straight from the oven." The easiest way to prep is to mash all bananas first in a separate bowl, so you can measure out what you need (freeze the leftovers for later use). Cream the butter and brown sugar in a bowl large enough for you to add the eggs and bananas later (about 3-4 cups). Once all the wet ingredients are combined, refrigerate until ready to use (within 24hrs). Same with all the dry ingredients...combine in a bowl big enough to hold the entire mixture (7-8 cups). Fold in the wet mixture until no dry flour is left. Don't worry if the bread looks undercooked after 65 mins; just turn off the oven and let it sit in there for 10 mins or so. This is a fabulous recipe...I highly recommend it!!
