Welcome to my personal recipe share page. All the recipes found here are all tried and true. Some have been shared by friends and some are old family recipes. Others I've found on cooking sites, web pages and in cook books. All have been tweaked to my families liking. Please note that I don't create my own recipes and I'm not taking credit for others recipes. I'm simply sharing what has worked for us and sharing our favorites. Since I know how much I enjoy new and exciting recipes, I thought I would share them with the world! I get tired of making the same dish time and time again. It's true that while something is worthy of being enjoyed frequently, the same rotation gets old fast. The recipes you will find here, for the most part, are simple to create with easy to come by ingredients. While there may be the recipe that requires a little more effort, I can assure you that it will be worth it. There will also be plenty of crock pot creations for you to choose from. I hope that you find something here that appeals to you and that you will share your favorites with me. Enjoy and Bon Appetite!

Banana Bread

(Much thanks goes out to Kelly for this yummy recipe! I recently found out that bananas give me HORRIBLE heartburn, so I’ve stopped eating them. I still had 3 ripe bananas and decided that I’d try a Banana Bread recipe. I’ve never made “real” Banana Bread before and this was easy and so good. I just hope that I don’t get heartburn! One of the BEST things about this recipe is that it only costs me 4 WW points!)

1 cup sugar
2 eggs
Pinch of salt
½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 ¾ cups all purpose flour
½ cup butter, softened
½ cup nuts, optional

Preheat oven to 350. Mix all ingredients well with a mixer. For muffins, bake 15 mins. For a mini loaf, 20-30 mins. For a full sized loaf, about an hour. The trick it to check the oven as it gets close to being time, so that the bread is not too brown.

(I made muffins, because it’s easier for me to count portions this way. I ended up with 21 muffins. I also got mine a little brown, oops.)


  1. I'm so glad this recipe has served you all as well as it has us. We love us some banana bread!

  2. Thank you for sharing it!!
