Old Fashioned Southern Banana Bread Recipe



Going to Grandma’s house, was always such a treat, I mean really, who doesn’t love the fresh smell of warm banana bread. My grandmother, was born and raised in southern Oklahoma, Hugo, matter of fact. I do not know where she learned to cook, but believe me, her cooking was the best. She was the type of grandma that when I asked her, how she made this or that, she would simply smile and say, “just add a little of this, and a pinch of that!”

My grandmother was a cook most of her life while raising 6 children mostly on her own. She worked for the state school, and I could just imagine all the smiles she brought to those children’s faces. I was fortunate one day, for my grandmother to share her recipe of her banana bread with me. Her recipe is so unique in fact, that you can add some bananas to it, or a can of pumpkin, or applesauce, with just a few minor seasoning adjustments. On top of all this, you don’t need separate bowls to mix the dry, and wet, ingredients. Just one bowl is all you need. If you like soft moist banana bread with a lightly crunchy outer crust, then you’ve come to the right place.

Below is a link to my Etsy Shop where you will find this digital download. Its not that expensive and well worth it especially when you can bake different types of breads with this one single recipe.

I hope you enjoy~

My Mother’s Hobo Beef Stew Recipe

white and black cow head


Hobo stew is one of my favorite meals during this time of the year. With all the hustle and bustle around here, trying to get everything done before the cold winter hits, this recipe is simple, quick, and can be thrown in the crockpot to simmer for hours while your busy doing something else. If you don’t have a crockpot, you can throw everything into a big pot and let it simmer for about an hour. You can use hamburger meat and/or beef cubes.


Beef Cubes– sauté beef cubes in a little butter or spray a pan with cooking spray until golden brown and the meat has soaked up its own juice.

Ground Hamburger– crumble hamburger meat up in pan and cook until done. Drain off grease.

*Whichever meat you desire in your hobo beef stew its important to cook the meat prior to adding in the vegetables. Set aside the meat.

As for the vegetables, the fun part is deciding which vegetable you would like to use in your stew. My mother was fond of celery, onions, potatoes, carrots, and cabbage, so therefore, she would always boil them until they were tender. Not too done, because she didn’t want them to fall apart while simmering.

In the same pot of undrained vegetables she would then simply put in canned peas, green beans, and corn. The most important canned item was diced tomatoes or stewed tomatoes, whichever you prefer. The tomatoes really give it the flavor!

Once everything is simmering, add in the meat and season to your liking! Allow everything to simmer together for about an hour or leave in the crockpot on low until your ready to enjoy!

This recipe goes really well with some cornbread, or crackers. Any left overs can be reheated and most likely taste better the next day due to the tomatoes.

If your not fond of tomatoes, then add some beef broth or canned golden mushroom soup. Just some suggestions.

I hope you enjoy this recipe!
