Vegan Banana Bread

It's one of those days when you realize that you have a number of very overripe bananas and you better do something with them before the fruit flies move in.  I froze some for smoothies and the rest became this banana bread.

I know that there are millions of banana bread recipes out there but this one is vegan and it's so perfectly delicious that I had to post it.  It rose up beautifully, the crumb is tender and it tastes great.

I added pecans, because I'm allergic to the traditionally used walnuts, but you can use either one or leave the nuts out altogether.  You could also add chocolate chips...

It's fall, tomorrow is the midterm elections, and frankly I needed a little something sweet today.

Chocolate Filled Rose Cakes

What better time to use a rose muffin pan than for Valentine's Day. I made my Valentine some mini rose bundt cakes, filled with fudge, because Valentine's Day must involve chocolate.

Sweet Potato Peanut Stew

I can't believe that it's taken me this long to make this recipe. Sweet potato peanut stew is a delicious savory bowl of winter comfort food.  It's a one pot meal with sweet potatoes(yams), greens, garbanzo beans and peanuts for protein.

Pumpkin Cheesecake with a Gingersnap Crust

It's fall and pumpkin flavored everything is back again.  I'm a big pumpkin fan myself.  I've been making my pumpkin pie smoothie every morning for breakfast for the last month.

Basic Tomato Sauce

If you grow your own tomatoes, you probably have more ripe tomatoes than you can eat at this point in the season.  This is when I start making pasta sauce, to freeze for the winter.  I prefer a basic sauce that I can flavor later, with basil and garlic or chili powder, depending on what I'm going to make for dinner.

My Blog is Back!

My blog is back!  I took a break during the Christmas holidays because I was just too busy to post.  Then, when I found some time to post a recipe, my blog was no longer visible to the public.  I've been going round and round with Blogger and GoDaddy (it's always the other guy's fault) trying to fix the problem when I decided to get some professional help.  I am, admittedly, very ignorant of the technical aspects of this.  After a month of phone tag with a recommended IT guy, I went back and tried to fix the problem myself.  After ignoring the problem for way too long, and with some help from a different GoDaddy help line guy, I was finally able to fix the problem.  

Here's what I didn't get to post:
