  • Bread compliments any meal you cook. I’ve always been a bread lover and for me, bread does more than compliment a meal, it makes it.
    Why do we always love the things that aren’t good for us? Well, when it comes to food, at least, it just plain ol’ tastes better.
    The recipes I’m sharing with you today are bread at its best, and I guarantee that you’ll go back for seconds.

    For years, my dad has grown the most beautiful garden around.

    I love to pack a picnic lunch and take the kids over and let them ride their bikes and play while dad takes me row by row and shows me each of the lovely plants that are growing.

    So, how do you like your bananas? Firm, with a tinge of green? Yellow, and no spots? Or soft and speckled?

    I prefer mine just barely ripe with no spots. If I’m baking banana bread though, I use bananas that are almost black. The riper, the more stout the flavor. Bananas, like most fruits, are very versatile and add a delicious, sweet flavor to any food or drink. This week’s column is all things banana. I’ve included three of my favorite banana recipes.
