This recipe is from Eating Well Recipe collection. I changed the recipe by replacing ground beef with ground turkey and reducing the amount of dried thyme. It's a really good comfort food.

Very Good 4.8/5

This is inspired by Starbucks' low fat chocolate chip banana bread and is great with coffee! Although many of the ingredients are lower fat, the bread comes out very moist!

A family favorite. Even better after it sits for a day or two. But that doesn't happen often, it's usually gone the first time around. The original recipe states to simmer 2-3 hours, I rarely cook it that long, basically heat it through and serve. Yummy!
