Sugar-Free Banana Bread

[Editor's Note: I love banana bread, but it always feels a little bit to me like I'm taking a healthy fruit and, um, making it unhealthy by adding a bunch of sugar to it.

Stephanie of The Culinary Life found a recipe that incorporates whole grains and no sugar, and then adapted it with the help of her skeptical boyfriend, Thad.

Vegetable, Ham, Cheese and Rice Casserole

[Editor's Note: This oven-baked one-dish meal was an opportunity for Lauren of Lauren's Latest to take advantage of ingredients she already had on hand. But it's not a hard-and-fast recipe just for that reason—it can be customized to feature ingredients (carnivorous and vegetarian) that just happen to be in your refrigerator and/or pantry.
