For The Soul—Unique Aspects of the Western World

A Taste of Home

Take a seat at the table of six international APHA members and get a taste of what home feels like across the world.

Some of life’s fondest memories are made at a family dinner table. Laughs, much-needed talks or even occasional family arguments season classic family recipes with the spices of life and foster the relationships we hold dear. These recipes and flavors become a part of what makes our homes so familiar and special, resurrecting fond memories and feelings of nostalgia even years later or miles apart.

While pot roast and apple pie might be staple items at an American dinner table, peoplefrom all over the world have their own interpretation of the perfect home-cooked meal. Six international APHA members share recipes for their favorite meals that make them feel most at home.

I’ve always had an obsession with iconic Western pieces, especially cow skulls. Skull décor is versatile—it looks impressive in a modern beach house or a rustic log cabin—and every skull tells a unique story, allowing you to express your personal style while making a bold statement.

“Banana nut bread is a great way to bring the familiarity of home to a horse show or hockey game,” Janene said.

Banana Nut Bread

½ cup of margarine

2 cups of brown sugar

2 eggs

3 cups of all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon of salt

2 teaspoons of baking powder

2 teaspoons of baking soda

6 ripe bananas

1 cup of milk chocolate chips (add more for personal preference)

Cream the margarine, brown sugar and eggs. Add the dry ingredients and the mashed bananas, and then add the chocolate chips. Pour into greased loaf pans, mini loaf pans or muffin tins. Bake at 325° F for 60 minutes for a loaf or 20 minutes for mini loaf pans or muffin tins. Loaves are done when a toothpick entered in the center comes out clean. Take out of oven and enjoy warm, or transfer to a container to travel to the horse show!
