I am so thankful God gave us friends! Friends are such an important part of our lives, but being an only child, many of my friends have become like a sibling to me. They offer me unconditional acceptance, love, encouragement, fun times and help. Two of my friends recently sent me some wonderful tips and I am going to share them with you for a few weeks. Thanks to Susan and Mary – love you both!!
*Take your bananas apart when you get home from the store. If you leave them connected at the stem, they ripen faster. (After all, just how much banana bread can you make?!)
*Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and stronger flavored.
* Add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste of garlic and at the end of the recipe if you want a stronger taste of garlic.
* Reheat leftover pizza in a non-stick skillet on top of the stove, on medium low heat till warm. This keeps the crust crispy – no soggy micro pizza.
Here is one more “reunion” recipe. This is a wonderful bread to make and “share with a friend”. Be sure your peaches are very ripe and have a full, peachy fragrance.
