Banana Squares

Banana Squares

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

Coconut Fruitcake

We live in a little community of 27—if everyone's home! A neighbor game this recipe when we first moved here, saying it dated back to the 1800"s and everybody in the area made it. I soon discovered why when I took a taste...and I'm not a fruit cake fan! My husband, who's the inventor of a three-point bale mover, and I have a grown son. I'm a crafter and collector.

This is a delicious and pretty salad for the holidays, but it's so good that I serve it other times, too. I got the recipe from a neighbor who had served it with a traditional turkey dinner.

One day, I wanted to use up a leftover can of cherry pie filling that I had in the refrigerator. I added some diced rhubarb, then used a cobbler topping I liked. It turned into a favorite—fast! After many years of farming, my husband and I are now enjoying a new life in our new house, built on a lake.

Kipplens

My Great-Aunt Hilda makes this recipe every Christmas, and everybody just raves about it! Kipplens taste a lot like Mexican wedding cakes...but I like them better. Kipplens really do melt in your mouth! Plus, they are easy to make-an advantage for me because I have two small children at home and also like to quilt, cross-stitch and work in my garden.

Frieda's Molasses Cookies

This recipe has been in our family for a long time. During the 1930s and 1940s, my mother baked a batch of these delicious cookies at least once a week. Neighborhood children who passed our house on the way to school looked forward to stopping on their way home for those cookies, still warm from the oven. Dunked in a glass of cold milk, they were a snack that was hard to beat!

I REMEMBER going blackberry picking with Mom and Grandma. Even at 70 years old, Grandma could pick 3 gallons of berries before I had my pail half full. Grandma made up this recipe with her mom, and it's been passed down for five generations now. -Diana Martin, Moundsville, West Virginia
