OK everyone, the countdown has begun! The kids are back in school and the summer is just about over. BUT....there is still one weekend left we consider summer and then, “BOOM!” we are thinking fall! Thank you again for all of your requests for our summer recipes. We wrote about perfectly grilled meats, easy side dishes, and decadent desserts with berries, cherries, peaches and plums. But we forgot one.......bananas!
Of course bananas can be used a million different ways, adding a sweet flavor and creating a very moist texture in many recipes. Growing up in our house, ripe bananas were always used for Mom’s scrumptious Banana Bread. When Judy and I asked for your favorite recipe for this, the variations were amazing. Pineapple, coconut and Italian cocoa powder were all the favorites and we will enjoy trying all of them.
