E-Z No-Fuss Recipes

E-Z No-Bake Banana Bread

1/3 cup melted butter
1 cup sugar (can easily reduce to 3/4 cup)
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
3 to 4 Bananas

Allow bananas to ripen on counter.  They should be good and soft.  When someone says the bananas are turning rotten, explain you're saving them for banana bread.  Bananas will eventually turn black.  When fruit flies arrive, throw out bananas.

E-Z No-Mix Guacamole


1 Lime, juiced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 medium onion, diced
1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
2 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

3 Haas Avocados

When avocados come from Costco, they will be too hard to use in recipe, so set on counter and allow to soften.  Warn others not to eat avocados because you're saving them for guacamole!  Check periodically for ripeness.  Nope, still too hard.  Go away for weekend.  When you return, avocados will be mush.  Throw out.

E-Z No-Hassle Sun-Dried Tomatoes


5 to 10 pounds fresh tomatoes

Slice tomatoes in half and lay face up on baking sheets or shallow baking pans.  Sprinkle lightly with sea salt, cover with cheese cloth, and allow to sit in warm, dry place.  After three days, check on tomatoes.  Ugh.  What were you thinking?  Throw out and go to the Kroger for sun-dried tomatoes like a normal person.
