No more posts until…

…we get settled into our new house. I’m really sorry, but I will not be able to add any new recipes for awhile. My family is moving on Wednesday down to Kentucky, so we are and will be very busy this weekend and next week. Please bear with me! I promise to start posting again once everything has calmed down 🙂 .  Meanwhile(and longer, of course!), may the Lord bless you! 🙂

My Mom has been using this bread recipe for years now from her faithful Betty Crocker’s Cookbook.  I’ve added some ingredient substitutes to help make this yummy bread a little bit lower in fat and calories for those of us who are more conscious of how we eat 🙂 .





 * 1/3 cup milk

* 2-3 medium bananas

* 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil ( Substitute: 1 Tablespoon of oil & 2 Tablespoons of applesauce)

* 1 egg ( Substitute: 1 egg worth of egg sub. such as Egg Beaters)

* 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

* 1/2 cup granulated sugar

* 1/2 cup packed brown sugar

* 3 1/2 tsp. baking powder

* 1 tsp. salt


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9 inch loaf pan. Mix all ingredients; beat 30 seconds. Pour into pan. Bake until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Bake for 55- 65 minutes; cool slightly. Loosen sides of loaf from pan; remove from pan. Cool completely before slicing.

I found this recipe on another blog and it’s wonderful! I just made it for the first time yesterday afternoon with a young friend of mine. It’s kind of time comsuming, but worth it. Sorry, but these are not low in calories! 🙂




* 1 1/2 Cups shortening

* 2 2/3 cups packed brown sugar

* 4 eggs

* 2 tsp. vanilla extract

* 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

* 2 tsp. cinnamon

* 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda

* 1 tsp. salt

* 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

* 4 cups old-fashioned oats



* 3/4 cup shortening

* 3 cups confectioner’s sugar

* 1 jar (7 oz.) marshmallow creme

* 1-3 tablespoons milk


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and brown sugar well.

3. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add vanilla.

4. Combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and nutmeg, and add to creamed mixture.

5. Stir in oats.

6. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto lightly greased baking sheets.

7. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

8. Remove to wire racks to cool.

9. For filling, in a mixing bowl, cream shortening, sugar, and marshmallow creme.

Tip: I found it to be much easier to use a hand mixer rather than trying to stir by hand.

10. Add enough milk to achieve spreading consistency.

11. Spread filling on the bottom of half the cookies and top with remaining cookies.

12. Eat and enjoy!
