Banana Cream Pie III
I had some textural issues because I used cook & serve pudding, but otherwise the taste was great! I made some changes: used graham cracker crust (which I baked for 5 min @ 375 ahead of time), I layered 4 oz. dark chocolate pudding, 1 sliced banana, 3.4 package banana pudding mixed with 1/2 cup light whipped topping, 4 oz. dark chocolate pudding, and 1 sliced banana. I marbelized the chocolate and banana pudding on the top layer, so it looked pretty. I let everyone top with their own whipped topping.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II
I made alot of changes to this.... I omitted the chicken to make it vegetarian, used short-grain brown rice, a mixture of sesame oil and olive oil instead of butter and veg. oil, 1 tbs. soy sauce and 1 tbs. teriyaki. I also added pinches of minced ginger and red pepper flakes. I cooked the egg with a bit of salt. I also added 1/2 cup peas and 2 tbs. peanuts. I would add other veggies like carrots, broccoli, or bell peppers if I had them. It tasted pretty close to restaurant style.

Oat Bran Muffins
Not very sweet, but that's how a bran muffin should be! I substituted: 3/4 whole wheat flour and 1/4 white flour, wheat germ for 1/4 of the oat bran, 2 chopped apples, 1/2 cup soaked raisins, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, 3 tsp. cinnamon, pinch of nutmeg cloves ginger, 2 tsp. lemon juice, and added 1 cup soymilk because it needed more moisture...also took about 20 min to cook in my oven.
