I've had a recipe for Overnight Slow Cooker Steel Cut Oats with Banana for a while...actually, for years. CH is trying to eat things that don't have a chance to upset his stomach and I thought this might work. I don't have a picture because who can take a picture of oatmeal so it looks appetizing? Definitely not me. Anyway, the recipe calls for freshly grated nutmeg. I'm not sure if that would have made a difference. I was a bit disappointed with this recipe; I just didn't think there was a lot of taste to it. I added brown sugar to my bowl before I ate it; it helped but not much. I didn't think it had a lot of banana taste to it even though I added an extra banana to the slow cooker the night before. So, this recipe is going in the trash.

Who else likes soup in the winter? A link to this Stuffed Pepper Soup Recipe was in an email I received from Six Sisters Stuff. If you haven't ever visited their site, they have some amazing recipes. I cut the recipe in half which is easy to do before you print it out...just change the number of servings right on the page. Easy peasy!
School closures mean baking. Who doesn't love to bake when schools are closed and the snow is falling? I found this recipe for Bread Machine-Banana Bread and decided to give it a try. The recipe was as easy as putting the ingredients in the bread machine. No mixing was involved. The only prep was mashing the bananas and lightly beating the eggs. My kitchen smelled heavenly with the smell of banana bread baking at the end of the cycle. There is a comment in the post about the ingredients not mixing all the way but the tips give a couple of suggestions: 1) to scrape the sides after the first mixing cycle has stopped, and 2) premix the ingredients before putting them in the bread machine.
Well, I know what to do next time, don't I? Oh, yes...there will be a next time!
The only thing I did differently was to add some cinnamon. I thought it turned out great and the taste was very good. This will be a perfect way to make banana bread in the summer since it doesn't require turning on the oven!
If you read my Wednesday Hodgepodge where I hinted about a recipe for Danish Pancakes, sorry to disappoint. I didn't have a decent picture so I'll have to make them again for next month's From My Kitchen.
Let me know in the comments if you've tried any new recipes. Were they flops or keepers?
