Banana Strawberry Ice


This ice is so easy and creamy tasting, without the cream. You might need a little sweetner if you like it sweeter, but it is just right for me.

It’s a great way to use up some garden strawberries too. We are about strawberry jammed out around here.

Banana-Pecan Whole Wheat Loaf

This Banana Pecan Wheat Bread made good french toast because the bread is not cake like, which makes it easy to slice in a uniform manner.

This is a bread machine recipe from Fleischmann’s Yeast, although the link to this particular recipe seems to be gone .

While I was not crazy about the loaf in itself (not sweet enough for a banana bread in my own opinion), it did make some very good french toast.
