Recipes

Seeing as I wanted to go to culinary school and all
(and it was requested :>)
I have two recipes here that are easy
and fun and sweet!

Cinnamon Banana Bread
I got this recipe from another friends' friend's blog.
(try saying that 5 times fast hahahaha)
But it's an awesome recipe that everyone likes.
Case and point, the picture above.
I just made this yesterday and already it's mostly gone.

3-4 mashed up bananas (if they're smaller bananas use more)
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 egg
a pinch of salt
1/4 cup melted butter
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups chocolate chips*

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl in the order shown above.
Bake at 350 for 50 minutes in greased bread pan.
*Chocolate chips are optional
but if you do use them bake for 60 minutes*

I love this bread, it's so easy and you can find most of this stuff in your kitchen.
Plus it's delicious with the chocolate chips or without ;)


Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is from the book:
Grandma's Christmas Cookies
but I love it and my family really enjoys them.

3/4 cup Crisco shortening/Crisco sticks
1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 egg
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp salt
3/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 cup chopped pecans*

Combine all brown sugar, shortening, milk, egg, and vanilla and mix.
Add flour, baking soda and salt and mix again.
Preheat oven to 375.
Roll little balls of dough onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8-10 minutes.

This recipe is soooo good! But I never use pecans.......ewwwww.
Definitely just add more chocolate to them ;)
I also double the recipe because this one only makes about 24 cookies
unless you make them really small
which is pointless. ;)

Enjoy your sweet treats!

Soon to come:
Salads, pasta, and meat!
