Banana Bread slices side

I don’t know about you but I always buy bananas with the intention of eating them quickly. Somehow I never manage to finish a bunch before they start to get overly ripe. When that happens I do one of two things: freeze them so that I can use them in smoothies or bake muffins or bread. So in honor of over-ripe bananas, here’s a recipe for a flavor-packed banana bread with raisins and pecans.

Cottage Pie

When I was a kid it was a treat to order lunch from the tuck shop (or canteen). We’d write our orders on a brown paper bag and put our money in exact change inside, and drop it off at the tuck shop in the morning.  At lunch time we would pick up our brown paper bags with our orders inside.  Almost every time I would order some sort of pie: a meat pie, an apple pie that was topped with whipped cream and powdered sugar, or cottage pie.  Cottage pie was my favorite: a shortbread crust filled with meat, veggies and gravy, topped with mashed potatoes and baked to perfection. Yum.  I would use a fork and scoop out the top and filling and then eat the crust!

A Very Untraditional Borscht…

A Very Untraditional Borscht…

One of my worst character traits is that I’m impulsive. That often means when I go to the farmers market I get carried away. I buy far too many things because they look pretty, or because I think “I can make a great x with that” without actually thinking about how much produce I’m buying and realistically what I’ll be able to do with it within a week. This soup is the result of one such farmers market buying spree. I had a ridiculous number of beets of all kinds that were in desperate need of being used. So I roasted them and made this delicious and heartwarming, but not quite traditional, borscht.
