About Me

I have been cooking my way through life for over 50 years, beginning with mud pies as a child. I've turned a corner now and feel a Renaissance in my life. Recipes and Random Thoughts is my personal spin in a blog about how to prepare good food and how it prepares you for life. I want to share with you, honest to goodness food punctuated with perspective from the special memories and moments that have marked my journey.

Banana Peach Bread

 I hate to waste anything, food in particular.  That's why I enjoy taking the odds and ends in the refrigerator and turning them into something good.  A few over ripe fruits and the last dab of sour cream about to go to waste turned into a lovely twist on good old banana bread.

1 stick of butter at room temperature
1 cup of sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups of flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
2 ripe bananas mashed
2 ripe small peaches chopped
1/3 cup sour cream
1/3 cup milk

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy with and electric mixer on high speed. Add the eggs one at a time and beat in after each, then add the milk and sour cream.  In a seperate bowl, combine the flour, salt, baking powder and soda and cinnamon and set aside.  Combine the mashed bananas and peaches to make 2 cups of fruit. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in three parts, mixing well and scraping down the sides after each addition. Add more milk it mixture is too dry. Mix until just combined, then stir in the fruit.
Pour into 2 8x4 foil pans sprayed with cooking spray.  Place on a baking sheet and bake 50 minutes at 350 or until a skewer comes our clean.  Allow to cool 15 mins in the pan and then turn out onto cooling rack to cool completely.
