Banana Squares


I absolutely love these and it's practically become our replacement for banana bread. The addition of the sour cream makes the squares moist and the egg whites lighten it as well. These are great to eat anytime of day, breakfast or dessert!


Banana Squares

2 eggs, separated
2/3 cups butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
2-3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Beat in egg yolk and bananas.
  • Combine flour and baking soda. Add to the creamed mixture alternately with the sour cream, beating well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla.
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Fold the egg whites and walnuts into the mixture.
  • Pour the mixture into a greased 9x13 pan and bake for 40-50 minutes, or until golden brown on top.

All Things Tomato

I absolutely love home grown tomatoes, for obvious reasons. They have so much flavor and honestly take on that fruity quality that they are known for. One nice thing about harvesting your tomatoes is that you can easily stew them down and freeze them for later uses, for hearty soups or sauces during the winter time.

If you're like me, you have a ton of tomatoes in your garden. But if you love eating them fresh and don't mind a daily dose, I've compiled a list of recipes that showcase fresh tomatoes specifically.
