Recipes of Awesomeness

A place to share some great easy to make recipes you’ve found or invented that taste really good to you.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread-

3-4 Ripe Bananas
1/3 Cup of Melted Butter
1 Egg
1 Cup of Sugar
1 Tsp of baking soda
Pinch of Salt
1-1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1 cup of chocolate chips.

Melt butter, put bananas in mixer. Pour butter on top of bananas, use wire attachment to whip the ever loving shit out of them. Add Eggs and Sugar, baking soda, salt, and flour until creamy like gravy.

Add chocolate chips. Pour into bread pan. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees.

To tell if it’s done, take a knife and dip it all the way down. Pull it out, should come out clean with maybe a little chocolate. Nothing from the bread part of the banana bread.

PS: For best bananas, make sure most if not all surface is solid black.

Re: Recipes of Awesomeness

Good lord I love banana muffins or bread loaves.

My mom used to make a kind that had a sort of…. ‘crackle-top’.

It was a banana muffin and her rule was same as yours; bananas had to be really turning bad.

But the top… it was (maybe) brown sugar in on it, with cinnamon (?), and maybe a butter brushing (I doubt that; mom didn’t do ‘extra steps’ or fancy-ness when it came to baking) to make the end result muffin very normal throughout except for this awesome, crackle-top stuff on top.

Any help with that?

In exchange, I offer a cheap (if conditions are right) favorite meal of mine;

Pork Tenderloin Roast (Easy)

  • 2 pork tenderloins. These are sometimes REALLY cheap if pork prices are depressed as seems to happen in cycles in Canada and northern USA. Right now they are wayyyyy too expensive (like, 5 bucks each or more); at other times of year, they can be as cheap as 5 bucks for a pair in a package.

  • 4 or 5 potatoes (any kind)

  • 4 or 5 small/medium onions (whatever kind)

  • 3/4-bottle Sundried Tomato oil/vinnegar dressing. Lots of brands out there make this.

Cut up potatoes and onions into small chunks. Mix in a bowl with the salad dressing.

Dump that mess into a roasting pan, and put the two tenderoins on top. You can douse the tenderloins in shake-and-bake or wait until half-way through cooking and base with BBQ sauce; I’ve done it both ways.

Put the pan into the oven, 350 for around an hour or so, whenever the tenderloin is done through.

This particular cut of mean is very lean, so the little bit of fat that comes off it just blends in with the seasoned potatoes and onions and makes it all taste just yummy.

Dieters may not like that, but for those of us who can eat anything and never gain a pound, I hope you like this as much as I do!
