    Man, I would totally give you my ripe bananas. I only like my bananas green with a hint of yellow, but they pass that stage pretty quickly, so I always end up forgetting one or two and then I inform Boyfriend that it's his job to dispose of the completely yellow bananas. When he forgets too, well, then it's baking time

    I would gladly take them - I like bananas with the skin almost completely black...

    Ugh. Once a banana gets a single black spot I can't eat it.

    6 is ok but must be eaten soon.

    I will only eat 7 if I'm extremely hungry, and I don't have another option.

    3 for me, after that, I won't eat them.

    Baked half of my cookies today. Peanut butter blossoms, chocolate with white chocolate chips, toffee bars with milk chocolate and chopped pecans, and toffee bars with white chocolate and chopped walnuts and cranberries. Tomorrow, spritz cookies, chocolate with sour cherries biscotti, and chocolate chip shortbread.

    Wow, that's a lot of cookies! My back is starting to ache just thinking about how you must have been on your feet all day in the kitchen...

    Banana number 4 is perfect! 3 would be weirdly sticky, and 5 would be acceptable but need to be eaten ASAP. 7 would go in the trash.

    I discovered insulated/double layer baking pans are bad for gingerbread cookies (I made drop ones, not cutouts). They stayed way too soft, and I ended up overcooking a batch. Crappy old single-layer pans it is!

    http://lifeinsuranceandmore.com/2012...-dark-patches/

    The fully ripe banana produces a substance called TNF, which has the ability to combat abnormal cells.

    As the banana ripens, it develops dark spots or patches on the skin. The more dark patches it has, the higher will be its immunity enhancement quality....

    The degree of anti-cancer effect corresponds to the degree of ripeness of the fruit, i.e. the riper the banana, the better the anti-cancer quality…

    In an animal experiment carried out by a professor in Tokyo U comparing the various health benefits of different fruits, using banana, grape, apple, water melon, pineapple, pear and persimmon, it was found that banana gave the best results. It increased the number of white blood cells, enhanced the immunity of the body and produced anti-cancer substance TNF.

    Banana 6 is perfect. I'd eat 5 and 7 without a problem. I'd eat 4 if I was hungry, but I'd prefer it sit for a little longer.

    It's actually a "cheat" recipe. I use the crust for Lemon Bars. But, the cookies are amazing! Everyone's favorite.

    3/4 Cup Softened Butter
    1 1/2 Cups Flour
    1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar
    1 Small Bag Nestle's or Hershey's Mini Semisweet Chocolate Chips
    Granulated Sugar (Can be colored, can be the large grain)

    Mix flour and powdered sugar together, add softened butter and mix with a fork until it gets crumbly.
    Add mini chips and mix with your fingers until chips are well mixed in.

    Press into a 9" X 13" pan. Sprinkle the top with granulated sugar, to cover the entire top.

    Bake @ 350 for 20-25 minutes, until slightly browned around edges.

    Remove from oven, let set for about 10 minutes, cut into small 1" X 1 1/2" bars.

    Eat and enjoy!

    __________________________________________________ ______________________________

    The rest of the Lemon Bar recipe:

    Make the above crust (without the chocolate chips), bake @ 350 for 20 minutes.
    Note: When you press into the pan, give the sides a slight lip, to prevent the lemon mixture from going over the sides.
    While crust is baking:
    Beat together:
    3 Eggs
    1 1/2 Cups Granulated Sugar
    3 Tbs. Flour
    Juice of 1 Lemon (I use a 1 1/2 Lemons)

    Open oven, pull rack out, pour lemon mixture over crust and continue baking for 20 more minutes.
    I don't actually remove the pan from the oven, because it helps keep the lemon mixture from going
    over the sides of the crust.

    When done, remove from oven, sprinkle with powdered sugar. Let sit of a few minutes and cut into bars.
    Don't remove from the pan until completely cooled, but cut while hot.

    Remember, all ovens are a little different. Some cook hotter than others. So, baking times can fluctuate
    +/- by a minute or two.

    ETA, another thing you can do is add 1/2 cup of ground pecans and take away 1/4 cup of the flour. Then, instead of putting granulated sugar on top. Put powdered sugar on top after it's out of the oven.

    I want to make slice and bake cookies. The recipe says to wrap in wax paper but I don't have wax paper. Can I use plastic wrap or foil? Sorry for the dumb question.

    I'll bet either would be fine.

    Either would be fine. But, I think the dough would be less likely to stick to plastic wrap than foil. That is the reason for wax paper, it won't stick to it. You could use baking parchment, if you have it.
