Banana Banana Bread
This is my first time attempting banana bread. I also altered it to make it more healthy. I used 1 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour and 1 cup of rolled oats. Someone had suggested cutting down the sugar, so I did with 1/2 cup brown sugar. If my banana bread came out any sweeter, I would have regretted putting as much as the recipe called for! I also added cinnamon, vanilla extract, and walnuts.. Then made a sugar crumb on top consisting of 2 Tbl white sugar, 2 1/2 Tbl brown sugar and 1 tea of.cinnamon. Added a little water then glazed the top. Husband seemed to enjoy the banana bread. Will make again!

Authentic Cincinnati Chili
I prepared this up with some left over turkey burgers in the freezer that we needed to get rid of. I thawed them out then started boiling it per the recipe. I added two beef bullion cubes to compensate for the lack of actual beef. Followed everything else and it was delicious! We like our food spicy, so I added more cayenne and chili powder. Served it up with kidney beans and jalapenos. No cheese ( I know) because we are watching the fat and are lactose intolerant, but it still turned out delicious! We had it with thin spaghetti noodles. Yum. Don't forget to SALT SALT SALT the spaghetti noodles before boiling them. One other tip, I don't like having to search for whole cloves, bay leaf, and all spice so I stuck them into a coffee filter bag. Cut out a strip of the coffee filter from the top then used that as a string to tie the bag together. Works perfectly, cheap, and easy to get rid of the spices when I needed to. Really love the ability to skim the fat in this recipe. No more weird orange fat that turns SOLID in the bowl while finishing up dinner!! And of course.. the Hubby loved it.

Egg-Free Low-Fat Oatmeal Cookies
This was good! I only gave it 4 stars since I still made some modifications. I have not tried the original recipe so I am not sure how that tastes. I'm on a low fat diet, so I made some changes that are good for me!(Except for the chocolate. Got to have that!) I replace the all purpose flour with whole wheat flour. For the sugars, I sub: 1/3 cup light brown sugar 1/6 cup white sugar I add:
