This recipe is from my mother's collection and is torn out of an old Ladies' Home Journal. It must be from the 60's...I wish I could show you the great hair flip on the woman with pearls making this. Did all our mother's wear dresses and pearls to cook in?
Okay I know that I am prejudiced but this is my mother's recipe for banana bread and I think it is the best banana bread in the world. It uses instant milk powder, something I have never seen in any other banana bread recipes. I am adding this to the large group of recipes on Zaar to keep this safe and in the family.
My father loves figs. He actually grows them in his backyard and when he "lets" me have some I will make this as a dessert. I happen to love goat cheese and between the two of us, we both love port. Everyone seems satisfied at the end.
These beans use New Mexican chile powder, a dark red, smoky powder. It is available in Mexican markets. You can substitute a dark, rich chile powder, like the ancho chile powder that is available in some supermarkets. Adapted from www.fiery-foods.com
Don't let all the ingredients scare you. Most of them are herbs. This is a great side dish for turkey or beef. Also can be used with wild rice. From my cookbook WINOS (Women In Need Of Sanity). Fresh herbs can be substituted...just triple the amount.
