Grilled Cheese

  1. Preheat a frying pan on medium-low heat on your stove.
  2. Generously butter one side of each slice of bread.
  3. Make the sandwich with your cheese as the filling and with the bread's buttered sides facing out.
  4. Determine if your pan is preheated by flicking some water on using your fingers. If it sizzles and evaporates quickly, it's preheated.
  5. Place your sandwich on the pan using a spatula. Start checking on occasion once the butter is no longer sizzling.
  6. At your desired doneness, flip it over and repeat.
  7. Once the sandwich is properly grilled, remove it from the pan and cut in half diagonally. This makes it taste better.

  1. The ratio of onions to bell peppers to tomatoes should be around 2:2:3 or 1:1:2
  2. Dice the onions, garlic, bell peppers and tomatoes. You don't have to cut them too small.
  3. Heat olive oil in a deep, large pan, add diced onions, green bell peppers and garlic.
  4. Add cumin, paprika, salt and pepper (to taste but I found it takes a lot more than I initially thought it would) and cook the mixture until the vegetables soften.
  5. Add the chopped tomatoes, bring to a boil, then cover and let it cook for about fifteen-to-twenty minutes, stirring occasionally (it might burn on the bottom otherwise).
  6. Sometimes, depending on the tomatoes, it might get really watery. In that case try to remove as much liquid from the top with a spoon as you can.
  7. Once it gets to a desired consistency, add passata and one or two teaspoons of harissa, stir and cover.
  8. Once it forms into a sort of paste, uncover and taste. This is the last time you will be able to stir it before adding the eggs, so add more spices depending on taste. Salt is essential here to counteract the bitterness of the tomatoes.
  9. If you're happy with the taste, make small wells using the backside of a spoon and crack the eggs into them.
  10. Lower the heat a bit and cover until eggs are cooked, depending on how you like them. I like the yolk to be a bit runny.
  11. Serve with parsley and toasted bread.

  1. If butter is cold, leave it out on the counter until it is soft and room temperature.
  2. Preheat oven to 350° Fahrenheit.
  3. Mix the baking soda and sour cream in a bowl until combined. Set the bowl aside.
  4. Mix the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl until creamy. A stand mixer is recommended, but not required.
  5. Mix the eggs into the butter sugar one egg at a time.
  6. Mix in the sour cream preparation.
  7. Mix in the banana mush.
  8. Mix in the baking powder and vanilla.
  9. Optionally mix in salt. Good idea if using unsalted butter.
  10. Mix in the flour 1/2 cup at a time until fully combined.
  11. If including walnuts, toast them on a tray in the preheated oven for a few minutes to enhance the flavor.
  12. Optionally mix in walnuts, chocolate, or whatever your heart desires.
  13. Rub butter all over the inside of the loaf pan. Really get your hands in there and spread it all over the bottom and sides.
  14. Plop some flour into the pan. Then, while standing over the sink, shake the pan around so the flour coats the entire inside buttered surface. Finish by turning the pan upside down and tapping on it to shake off excess flour.
  15. Pour all of the batter into floured loaf pan.
  16. Bake in the oven for about an hour. Varies by oven, elevation, etc. If it's ready a toothpick or cake tester inserted into the top will come out clean.
  17. Let it cool on the counter for awhile.
  18. When it's cool enough, turn the pan upside down, and the bread should fall right out. Slice and serve.
  19. Wrap extra in aluminum foil to retain freshness.
