Easy Banana Bread
I've made this recipe several times now and have made adjustments as I've gone. I think it's perfect now. I substituted 2 sticks (1 cup) of butter for the 1 cup of shortening. I substituted 1 cup of brown sugar for 1 cup of the white sugar. I also added 1 tsp. cinnamon to the dry ingredients before combining them with the wet ingredients. In addition to this, I cut down on the baking time by baking them at 325 degrees, and making 12 jumbo muffins instead of the 2 loaves. This recipe is the perfect amount for 12 jumbo muffins. Very good flavor with the brown sugar and cinnamon, thanks for the recipe.

Mock Tuna Salad
Hey, not bad! Those garbanzo beans are the same color as tuna when they're all squashed up, so the appearance isn't bad either. I had this on pita bread (whole wheat) with lettuce and tomatoes. I also added cumin, chili powder and a pinch of cayenne to jazz it up a little. Really yummy served in a warm pita:) Thanks for a very good, easy recipe!

Greek Butter Cookies
BIG hit with everyone. Here's how I made them. First of all, that 'S' shape looked like a pain to make, so I took a melon ball/ice cream scoop, a very small one and using a level scoop, plopped them on the baking pans. Then, using the bottom of a glass, dusted in a little powdered sugar, squashed them flat, to about 1/4". When they were baking, I melted white chocolate and kept it warm. When the cookies were room temp, after baking, I spread the bottoms with white chocolate and put two halves together (like an Oreo). Then dusted the final cookies with the powdered sugar by sifting it with a fine mesh strainer. I know this is a far cry from any Greek type cookie, but these were really delicious, my husband's new favorites. Oh and I made them later using raspberry seedless jam on one side, and white chocolate on the other half, then put the two halves together, those are his new favorites. I used good chocolate, Lindt. Excellent recipe. I double the amount of vanilla and almond extract that the original recipe calls for by the way.
