Lemon Streusel Cake

Whenever friends compliment me on my zesty cake, I say, "Thanks Mom!" Her recipe for Lemon Streusel Cake was among dozens I took with me when I turned 21 and left home. When I was growing up, we had five kinds of fruit trees plus a big garden in our yard. Many times during the summer, I'd be so full from snacking on the "crops" that I'd have trouble finishing supper! Today, I'm a nurse in a large hospital—but my husband and I look forward someday to living in the country.

Banana Squares

When we were first married, my husband was in the Navy. Stationed in Puerto Rico, we had banana trees growing in our yard, so I found ways to use dozens of ripe bananas at a time. I made these banana squares often. They freeze well and make a great snack to have on hand when friends drop in for coffee. —Susan Miller, Raleigh, North Carolina
