Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins
Some changes I made make these delicious AND very healthy: like other reviewers, I substitued nonfat plain yogurt for applesauce and applesauce for vegetable oil. I also just added 3 egg whites instead of 2 whole eggs, splenda in lieu of brown sugar. I doubled the cinnamon, added a splash of nutmeg and added 1 teaspoon of baking powder. I also added about 1 cup of chopped walnuts, used frozen strawberries, 2 large mashed bananas. These were DELICIOUS and so nutritious! I highly recommend trying it!

Orange-Ginger Tofu Triangles
This was delcious! A few changes I made: 1) I didn't have any green onions, so I chopped up white onions and laid them on top of the tofu to bake. They came out great 2) I also didn't have fresh cilantro so I used a pinch of dried cilantro over each triangle. 3) While the tofu was baking, I sauteed fresh broccoli & bell papper (what I had in my fridge) in the marinade (as other reviewers have mentioned, there is a LOT left) until tender but crisp. THey were a perfect addition to the meal! I served all over brown rice with a side of Sriracha...amazing!!

Banana Pudding IV
Delicious but a little too sweet for my taste! I uesd nonfat milk to lighten it up a bit. To serve I layered the pudding, then banana slices then another layer of pudding. I topped with whipped cream and slivered almonds. I think it would go best following a lighter, rather than heavy, meal. Guests loved it!
