this sounds sinfully delicious
Many who are not vegan or not allergic to gluten, make there sweet breads with regular white flour. It can be bleached or unbleached. I thought I would change that and use 100% whole wheat flour in our featured recipe: Pecan Buttermilk Banana Bread.
Even though it’s made with 100% whole wheat, it won’t ruin the fun of enjoying this sweet treat. Besides whole wheat is a complex carbohydrate and wont spike your glucose, or cause a serge of energy to only fall fast 20 minutes later.

There is nothing like biting into a fresh peach. But just like everything when it comes into season, it is hard to imagine what to do with all those peaches. This is where canning comes in handy.
You can save that fresh taste for use in the fall or winter, when you are longing for anything that reminds you of summer. And canning peaches is simple. A pressure cooker is not required – you can use the water bath method, which is much easier and less scary for the first time ‘Canner’. (no, that isn’t an official title, but I like it)
Canning peaches allows you to grab a jar from the shelf, make a cobbler, pie, or enjoy the fresh taste of summer any time of the year. This allows you to also know what is in…
