Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Recipe

I can’t seem to keep up with Bananas lately before they start getting overly ripe.  I started making Banana Bread because my kids like it but also because it is very easy to make.  Here is a very simple recipe for the Banana Bread I use regularly. You can easily add different ingredients to make it your own. For example, nuts or different kinds of chocolate chips

Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

As part of our farm share this summer, we got some cayenne peppers. I had never grown cayenne peppers and really didn’t know what to do with them. I don’t think that many of our fellow farm sharers knew what to do with them either because instead of rationing them out like all the other produce, they were in a box that said “help yourself”. So, I took a bunch……about 200. I did a little research and realized that there were two things that we eat pretty regularly that are made from cayenne peppers……crushed red pepper flakes and Frank’s Red Hot sauce

Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my favorite recipe for Chocolate chip cookies, because they are the perfect mix of sweet and salty.  They are very easy to make and come out perfect.  The key is to not melt the butter and to use the baking soda and the salt.  I mix all the dry ingredients separately and then add them to the wet ingredients.
