Here’s a quick and easy recipe for Banana Nut bread. It’s more like a cake since you make it in a bundt cake pan.
Easy Banana Nut Bread
- 1 box of yellow cake mix
- 1 1/3 cup of oil
- 3 eggs
- 4 bananas, mashed
- 1 cup nuts, chopped – your favorite
- 3 Tablespoons of milk
- 1 cup of confectionary sugar
Mix cake mix, oil and eggs together. Then add mashed bananas (I mash mine with a potato masher) and chopped nuts (I use pecans). Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 to 45 minutes. Check on it every 5 minutes after 30 minutes. Mix milk and confectionary sugar together and drizzle over cake.
This is a really easy recipe. My family just loves it…I have made three of them since the middle of November.

Here’s a great Thanksgiving (or any time of the year) side dish. This recipe came from Kraft Foods at kraftfoods.com and I just made it for our Thanksgiving dinner at work on Thursday and it was really delicious. Here it is:

1/2 cup PHILADELPHIA 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese with Chive & Onion
2 cups cooked instant brown rice
1 can (15-1/4 oz.) corn with red and green bell peppers, drained
1 cup KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Cheddar Cheese, divided
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro
HEAT oven to 375°F. Mix cream cheese and egg in large bowl until well blended. Stir in rice, corn, 3/4 cup Cheddar and cilantro. Spoon into greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish.
SPRINKLE with remaining Cheddar.
BAKE 20 to 25 min. or until Cheddar is melted and casserole is heated through.
This is a great recipe for a side dish (or possibly a dessert) and especially if you like pineapple. I haven’t shared a recipe lately and I thought that I would right now.
- 2 cups chunk pineapple, drained
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1 stack pkg. Ritz cracker (or 31 crackers)
- 1 stick margarine
Combine sugar and flour, mix well with drained pineapple. Pour into well-buttered baking dish. Crush crackers, mix with melted margarine. Spread crumbs over pineapple mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 mintues.
I hope ya’ll enjoy this recipe, I know I sure have. It’s making me hungry just thinking about it!!
For Thanksgiving, we either go to my aunt’s house or my mother-in-law’s house (we alternate from year to year). This year it’s to my mother-in-law’s house we go. They always have a large buffet of all the traditional Thanksgiving recipes, such as Roasted Turkey, Sweet Potato Casserole, Cornbread Dressing, Homemade Pecan and Pumpkin Pies. It makes my mouth water just thinking about all the food. I usually take some kind of dessert. I would like to take something different this year. If anyone has a simple recipe for a great tasting dessert (or any other dish) that they would like to share. I would be grateful. I’m just tired of the same old thing to the dinners. So any ideas??
I just tried a new salad dressing…it’s the Wish Bone Salad Spritzer Asian Silk Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette and I absolutely love it!! The serving size is 10 sprays and has only 10 calories and 0.5 grams of fat and no saturated fat or trans fat. It combines the flavors of soy, sesame, orange and spices, and it tastes great!!! I think I just found a new salad dressing. You can even get a coupon by clicking here. And here’s a recipe using the Asian Silk Wish Bone Salad Spritzer that I’m going to try. If you try it, let me know. It sounds great.

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Labor Day. I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I had to work today but I have plans for the rest of the weekend. Krista and I are going to my sister’s on Sunday. On Monday, my sister, my niece, Krista and I are going shopping. And to take my niece to get her Build-A-Bear stuffed.
I got a quick recipe that somebody might want to try out this weekend. It’s for Homemade Orange Sherbert and it’s made in an ice cream freezer.
Homemade Orange Sherbert
