Janet's Rich Banana Bread
This recipe is a keeper. This bread had a beautiful dark brown color on the outside. Even though it had great banana flavor and was very moist, it wasn't super dense or heavy. I will be adding this to my recipe collection. I used 1 cup mashed banana and added a little cinnamon to my batter, as well as adding a teaspoon of lemon juice with the vanilla, as someone else suggested. I had several compliments, including one very picky eater who usually won't eat banana bread with nuts but he loved this. Fantastic!

Glazed Pumpkin Donuts
Great flavor.The texture isn't light & fluffy, which I didn't expect, but it also isn't the texture of a cake doughnut. It is very moist, dense, and heavy, just like a muffin. I made them as directed and they turned out ok but I will adjust the recipe next time to see if I can achieve a more doughnut-like texture. Also, I baked them at 325 for 15 minutes and they still were not done, so I adjusted the temperature up to 350 and baked them another 5 minutes.

Cuban Shredded Pork
This recipe was a big hit with the whole family, including some very picky eaters (not moi). I tweaked the recipe slightly for convenience and to suit our tastes. I let a 1# boneless pork loin marinade in lime juice, evoo, salt, pepper, onion powder, thyme, and lots of cumin & garlic overnight in the fridge. The following day I seared the entire roast and placed it in a crockpot. I deglazed the pan with 2c. chicken stock adding more lime juice, peppercorns, onion powder, cumin, & garlic also. I added this to the crockpot also & allowed it to cook on high 2.5-3 hours. Then I shredded the pork in the crockpot. I sautéed thinly sliced green pepper & onion, added the shredded pork, as well as even more garlic & cumin and fried it all approximately five minutes. I added more fresh lime just before serving. I served this with lime & cumin infused jasmine rice, spicy stewed black beans with diced tomatoes, warm tortillas, and a serrano ginger sauce. It was crazy good. I can't wait to make it again.
