Step Aside Girl Scouts... Mint Bars!!

Mint is starting to pop up in the gardens and inspired the recipe selection this week.  If you thought Thin Mint cookies from the Girl Scouts were addicting.. just wait until you try these!

Going Bananas!

Our recipe for this two week time frame was a throwback to childhood:  Banana Pudding with Vanilla Wafers.  I remember my Mom making this family favorite and it was oh, so good!  Let's see what our Beekman Bakers did with this classic:

Sue from NJ
When Sue submitted her photo, the banana pudding was in the fridge chilling. 
"I can't wait to try this later!  It's in the fridge chilling.  Taste tests on the vanilla wafers indicate it will be a hit!"
