Recipes

baked banana uncut bars

Chewy Banana BarsLiving in Kentucky the markets are flooded a few times a year with bananas. My husband seems to go crazy and buys up half the store when he goes shopping alone. I have bananas coming out my ears. There are only so many bananas that you can eat before you just cant eat another one. Furthermore, during the summer the bananas get ripe, so quickly, I have no idea what to do. I've made banana fudge, banana jam, banana cakes, banana bread, frozen bananas and banana cookies.

 

plate with deviled eggs carrots and pickles

Boiling Eggs to Make Deviled EggsI use the bottom of my 58 year old double boiler for boiling eggs. During the first year of our marriage, I boiled some eggs in the top portion of the double boiler. Best I can remember, I set the pot on the eye and turned it on high. The eggs boiled alright but I think I must have forgotten them because when I went back in the kitchen, the bottom of the aluminum pot had melted and the eggs were sitting on the eye. It took me a while to learn how to cook.
