Best Brownies
first of all, proper mixing methods are not described in this recipe and definitely contributed to my problems... I followed the recipe and the texture was off(large bubbles on top and throughout) likely because the recipe doesn't have you mix all the dry ingredients before putting them in with the wet. Even without the un-evenness, the texture isn't my favorite, because, as someone else mentioned, these are very cakelike brownies. I also followed instructions on the frosting and the first attempt turned into crumbs (because it doesn't tell you to soften the butter, then whip it, then GRADUALLY add in the powdered sugar/cocoa powder--which i would mix together first-- and then alternate adding powdered sugar with wet ingredients). I was able to "salvage" the frosting but even so it tasted like nothing but powdered sugar and vanilla - YUCK (most of the time i make frosting, I use 1/8th tsp vanilla for a much bigger batch of vanilla frosting but I followed this recipe because I thought the cocoa might necessitate adding more). I even tried adding some metled bittersweet chocolate and that did nothing to fix the flavor. I put some buttersotch chips and shaved bittersweet chocolate on top and let them melt and spread that around for frosting.

Mini Meatloaves
I made some adjustments based on the amount of meat I had and my preferences, but this turned out perfectly. This recipe is super tasty, super easy and a great representation of a classic meatloaf (mom's always had cheese). The biggest substitution I made was that I used half oat bran and half "fish shaped cheese cracker" crumbs (hooray for smashing fishy crackers with a rolling pin). I also added some dried onions, garlic powder, cracked black pepper and a touch of cayenne. I did not make the sauce because I didn't have the ingredients but the meat loaf is so tasty you don't really need sauce if you don't want to.

Chewy Granola Bars
i tweaked the recipe a little and they turned out tasty. I snuck a bite and they seemed a little dry when they first got out of the oven, but by the time they had cooled, the honey had worked it's magic and they had just the right amount of moistness. Here's the ingredient list I used: * 4 cups quick oats * 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour * 1 teaspoon baking soda * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract * 3/4 cup whole milk yogurt * 1 tablespoon oil * 3/4 cup honey * 2 tablespoons light molasses * 3/4 cups dark chocolate chips They were not crumbly at all. Following the instructions on when to cut and when to move the bars, might help those who have problems with the crumblies because 1. hot bars seem to like to stick to the pan more and 2.leaving them to cool for a couple hours gives the honey time to do it's magic, so they're moister than when they first come out of the oven.
