Prosciutto e Melone (Italian Ham and Melon)

Reviewed: May 24, 2014
Yes. This has always been a popular 'starter' in Europe; Italy in particular, but also very popular at 'nice' restaurants in England. I'm English, now living in Canada, and have eaten and served this for more years than I care to share! lol Often powdered ginger, in a shaker, was/is provided, and this also made a very nice addition on occasion. As a matter of fact, tomorrow evening we have friends coming for supper, staying overnight, and having breakfast before continuing their journey home. I'm serving this as a light starter, followed by Chicken with Capers/Cream Sauce, Garlic Smashed Potatoes, French Green Beans and fresh Asparagus; no dessert, but double cream Brie with green grapes and fresh raspberries. Some nice wine too of course! ;o} Brenda, Ontario, Canada

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
8 January 2013 I had a couple of really, (really), ripe bananas that I didn't want to throw out! I haven't made banana bread for many years. We're now down to two in the household and we both watch our intake of carbs, sugar and calories. However, I was intrigued by this recipe and decided to give it a go. However, I did make a couple of changes - I didn't have enough brown sugar on hand so used a mixture of brown sugar and palm sugar; I also didn't have white flour so used unbleached flour; I also added milk chocolate chips. Otherwise I followed the recipe! It was/is delicious. We sneaked a small slice as soon as it came out of the oven and the chocolate chips were wonderfully soft, runny and gooey. Delicious. I've saved the recipe with my changes, as we both really like the end result.
