Where Would You Love to Cook Today

I just love the Kitchen over at Stonegable.
I really love the island, it has a tone of room for preparing meals and doing great holiday displays.
Her blog is a great one to visit often. It is a very inspiring blog.
Well let get to what to make:
As I have been blogging around I came across a great blog with wonderful recipes, but the one that really caught my eye was:
Banana Bundtlets with Maple & White Chocolate Icing

Don't these look wonderful!
I think this is what I will be giving to all of my neighbors for Christmas this year.
  • 5 well-ripened bananas
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4 cups flour
For the Icing:
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 5 Tbsp butter
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp maple flavor (up to 1 tsp for stronger flavor)
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare pans with non-stick spray.
  2. In mixer bowl, add eggs and beat well. Add bananas and beat until bananas are mashed and mixture is smooth. Add shortening, applesauce and sugar and combine. Add baking soda, salt and flour and mix well.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  5. While banana bread is baking, prepare the icing by adding the sugar, butter and milk to a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir constantly as it comes to a boil, 3-4 minutes. Continue stirring as the mixture boils for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  6. Add the white chocolate chips and maple flavor and stir until the chips are melted and the icing is smooth.
  7. Pour slowly over the top of the bundt cakes, allowing it to drizzle down the sides. Cool and enjoy!

Breakfast Casserole

To make you will need:
1 pkg Hash browns with peppers and onions 
8 eggs
12 0z of breakfast sausage (not Links)
2 cups shredded cheese
2 1/2 cups milk
salt and pepper to taste
9 X 13 baking pan

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
I make this the night before and refrigerate over night.
* Cook the hash browns as per cooking directions on package.
* Brown the sausage and crumble.
* Grease 9 X 13 baking pan.
* Lay cooked hash browns on the bottom of the baking pan.
* Cover hash browns with 1/2 of the sausage.
* Cover sausage with 1/2 of the cheese.
* Combine the 8 eggs and 2 1/2 cups milk. whisk and pour evenly over the cheese.
* Add remaining sausage evenly.
* Cover with remaining cheese. 
* Salt and pepper.
* At this point you can cover and put in fridge until morning. The in morning preheat over and just put into oven.
* Bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes.

When done the top will be slightly brown and inside will feel firm when you poke it.
I top it with more cheese, salsa and sour cream. And I serve it with fruit.
