Janet's Rich Banana Bread
Great recipe! I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream and 3/4 cup brown sugar, mashed 2.5 bananas and baked it in two slightly smaller loaf pans for just under 50 minutes. So freaking good!

Irish Soda Bread in a Skillet
Fantastic recipe. I substituted about 2/3 cups of whole wheat flour, added a dash more salt and baking soda to accommodate, and added 1 tablespoon maple syrup just to add a hint of sweetness. I increased the baking time to 25 as others have suggested, and it was a delicious accompaniment to leek and potato soup for St. Paddy's Day dinner.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup
Wow, this was good! For something slightly different I think I'll add some clams and fish for a chowder, but it's definitely wonderful as is. I've made this several times now, substituting sour cream for the half-and-half. The last time I made it with fresh chanterelles and portabellas and OMG did that ever kick it up a notch! The wild mushrooms make it absolutely phenomenal.
