Janet's Rich Banana Bread
DELICIOUS! Totally agree with other reviewers. I had to double this recipe because I knew that based on the reviews, it would be wonderful. However, I did not have sour cream so I substituted 1 cup evaporated milk with 1 tablespoon white vinegar (for 2 loaves). I also took another reviewer's suggestion to add another 1/4 cup of flour (1/2 cup for two loaves) but I only added a total of 1 tsp baking soda and 1 tsp baking powder to make my two loaves. I used 4 nice sized bananas, but could have easily added another one. Overall, this is a GREAT recipe and I will be making it again. So HAPPY I doubled the recipe! Thank you for a great recipe!

Green Grape Salad
My family loves this recipe using low fat cream cheese and low fat sour cream! I do bring the cream cheese to room temperature so it is creamy when everything is mixed. I think I added more of both sugars bcuz I had sour green grapes but the purple grapes I added were such a nice complement as another reviewer suggested. This is a wonderful and quick dessert. Thank you!

Homemade Flour Tortillas
OK ladies, here goes...I did not intentionally want to sub ingredients, but I did not have shortening, lard, or even margarine or butter! I really wanted to make these so I subbed what I had on hand....COCONUT OIL! I did put in the freezer to harden for a bit so it would not be soft or oily. It took just a little more mixing with my fingers to break it down, but my husband who is (very) Mexican could not tell the difference. There really was no difference in taste and I actually liked the taste better. The only thing I would do next time is add just a tad more salt. My tortillas were soft, pliable and easy to handle. I did use 1/2 CUP of the coconut oil because that is usually what I add when I have made tortillas before. I also sprinkle flour on my acrylic cutting board where I make tortillas so they will not stick. This is THE BEST recipe for homemade flour tortillas that I have found and better than my previous recipe. I will be making this recipe again and again (with my coconut oil sub I believe). Thanks LaDonna!
