My cooking triumphs
The first time we made cabage rolls. We had NO IDEA what we were doing or what it was going to taste like. But when we took our first bites... it was like our mouths went on vacation!

Homemade Refrigerator Pickles
Tried this for the first time since I have such an overload of cucumbers in my garden. This was awesome and super easy! I added banana peppers so the mixture just to add my own taste to it. Will make these again!!!!

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad
DELICOUS! I was making this as a side dish so I didnt add chicken pieces. I also didnt have bouillon cubes so I cut the water in half and used 1c of chicken stock from the can. Turned out wonderful, the next day I had a bit of left overs and sauted some sausage threw it together and was a great 2nd time around meal! Ive already recommended it several times!

Janet's Famous Banana Nut Bread
Thank you so much for posting this recipe! It reminds me of my grandma's. I made only a few minor modifications to my tasting. I believe this recipe needed something more, I used about 2 cups of banana (about 4 mashed nana's) and instead of just white sugar I used 1c of white and 1c brown sugar. Also in my family we usually put a few squares of guave paste in it while its baking so I strongly suggest that!! Other then the few tweeks I made and suggestions I rated it a 4 only bc I felt it lacked enough flavor but this recipe is wonderful I used it alot now that I can finally make it almost as good as grandma! :)
