Recipe News: All the banana nut bread recipes you can bake

"If Mama or Grandma makes a recipe, then it has to be good.

"Like most grandmothers, my grandmother was an excellent cook. Our family treasures her recipes," said Pattie Necaise, who sent her grandmother's quick and easy, but delicious, banana bread recipe for William Schram Jr. to try.

"I hope this recipe for banana nut loaf becomes a favorite of William Schram Jr. who unfortunately lost his special recipes," said Terry Thomas of Ocean Springs. "Mother bakes this bread every holiday season to share with family and friends. She bakes it in smaller loaf pans and adjusts the cooking time. This recipe makes a moist bread that is also delicious without the nuts."

Cookbook Review: Not Just for Vegetarians

cover_photo.jpgLet's say you're not normally a vegetarian, but you either want to cut down on your meat consumption, or you're interested in preparing a nice meal or two for someone who is a vegetarian. Where are you to look for recipes that can satisfy both sides of the table, so to speak? Well a good place to start is Geraldine Hartman's Not Just for Vegetarians cookbook.

In it you will find lots of recipes that should have great appeal to not just people who have given up eating meat, but meat-eaters and vegans as well (there are vegan variations). Many recipes are nicely photographed, in photos that combine multiple dishes from a section. It's a nice presentation.

Another nice touch is the inclusion of both U.S standard and metric units in the ingredients list. Still being U.S. centric, I found it nice to get a feel for what the measurements were in the other system.

Finally, the cookbook, while not overly large, does have larger sized text making it easier to read from while cooking, but like most books it seems, doesn't lie flat well on the counter.

In addition to the recipes listed below, which were suggested by the author, I found a bunch that I am definitely interested in preparing. Old Fashioned Veggie Stew with Parsley Dumplings, Roasted Parmesan Potatoes, Oatmeal Chocolate Chews, the Veggie Pot Pie (described as a Meal in a Plate, and I believe it), Savory Cheddar Cheese Muffins and finally her Simply the Best "Meat" Loaf which intrigues me. At any rate, there are lots of great recipes to try and you'll find something for everyone, so I can recommend the book. It's a good addition for vegetarians, but the recipes also have a hearty appeal that should make carnivores happy too.

Recipe News: Cold Comfort

"Walking around in New York in August, it feels like there's a bus driving about two inches in front of your face, blowing hot exhaust that never stops. When you finally get to the market, your shirt is darkened wherever it touches your skin, and the herbs are looking as wilted as you feel. The idea of cooking is rapidly seeming crazier.
On the other hand, food-wise, it's finally truly summer. The tomatoes, peaches, corn, cucumbers, watermelon, and more, have arrived at long last. This is an exciting time, especially since these beloved American ingredients don't stick around for long.

Thrilled about a bunch of beets I picked up at my CSA last week, I set about making a cold borscht. When it was finally done, several hours later, it was delicious and cooling, but it was also midnight and I was suffering from heat stroke, having roasted the beets, simmered and strained the broth, blended it all and then waited for what felt like an eternity for the concoction to chill."

Includes recipes for:

  • Watermelon Agua Fresca

  • Elotes Mexican Corn Salad

  • Cold Cucumber Soup

Recipe News: Cake recipe taken beyond blueberries

img src="" align="right">"One recipe leads to another, if you're a cook with a curious mind.

Recipe developer Pam Simmons says she was inspired to go beyond a vanilla-flavored blueberry cake recipe she came across, so she adapted it by adding mixed berries, almond paste and another egg. The result, with its flavor of frangipani and texture of an almond butter cake, won unanimous approval from taste testers.

You can eat the cake warm or cold, Simmons says, suggesting that it's especially good for a tea or coffee break. And it nicely expands ways of using the fresh berries of summer."
