Janet's Rich Banana Bread
This is, the best from scratch recipe I have found. I have tried many and they always disappointed me. I did smash the bananas rather than slice, and I omit the nuts because I just don't like that. Otherwise, it's terrific. Give it a shot.

Swanson(R) Roasted Tomato and Barley Soup
Excellent soup. I added carrot, about 1 tsp salt and some pepper. Also a few bay leaves. I didn't roast my vegetables, rather I just did about a 5 minute saute of the carrot, celery and onion, and then the garlic for the last minute or so. Then you add in the tomatoes, broth and barley. I don't really recommend quick cook barley, it's more expensive per oz. than pearled... but if you do use it I would simmer the soup a good 40-45 minutes anyway, to let it all come together and become dense and flavorful. Then add the quick cook barley. I used Imagine brand broth. Great recipe, just what I was looking for.

Herbed Chicken Nuggets
Yeah, these are good. I don't know about wheat germ, I just used all bread crumbs. I like the spices listed, but I added garlic and onion powder as well. Don't forget to add SALT!!! I noticed someone mentioned these could use some, and they are right. I believe that's what "seasoned bread crumbs" means, but salt probably should be listed separately on the ingredients list. Tasty.
