Spaghetti Carbonara II
Made this for breakfast because who says you can't have pasta for breakfast? I eyeballed the measurements and left out the wine and parsley as I didn't have any. I used whole wheat pasta and mixed the eggs, bacon, onions, cheese, and garlic in a bowl together and then added the hot pasta to sit for a minute or two. Perfect! I think a couple of spoonfuls of pasta water will help with the dryness issue some people seem to have. I added some to the leftovers to make reheating easier. I definitely will make this again for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack...

Fluffy Pancakes
I'm a person who can cook everything and anything but pancakes have always defeated me. They stuck and/or burned no matter how much cooking spray I used or how low I kept the heat... until now. This recipe is delicious and the pancakes came out fantastic. I used oil instead of butter to save me washing another container used to melt it and added nutmeg, cinnamon, and almond extract. The batter's a bit thick, but with about a teaspoon or so of extra milk added, it was perfect. I definitely will double the recipe next time as I want extra to freeze for a quick breakfast.

Banana Banana Bread
The only thing I didn't like was that the crust was a bit dry, but the rest of the bread was very moist with nice chunks of banana inside. Oddly enough, the crust got softer when I refrigerated it, not dry as it was when I first took it out. Still, I give it five stars.
