Creamy Banana Bread
I made this because I not only had bananas that needed to be used up but some cream cheese as well. So glad I did! I was quite impressed with this. Especially with how moist and fluffy it was. It was like biting into a banana flavoured cinnamon entwined cloud. I reduced the white sugar to 1 cup and used walnuts instead. Came out plenty sweet for me and I'll continue to make it that way. Then I baked them in mini loaf pans since I had in mind of giving some away. Didn't happen! I didn't find it bland as some others had complained about. Just light and delicious. If you're looking for a mega flavoured banana bread I would suggest the "Banana Banana Bread" found on this site. My bananas could have been a bit riper so at first I was a bit uneasy about making this but I was already in the process. Still came out great. Remember, when you're making banana bread make sure your bananas are super ripe. So ripe that the house reeks of bananas and guests ask if you have a pet monkey! Also be sure to beat everything very well. This is important to making fluffy baked goods. Do not underestimate that!

Orange Sunrise Smoothie
This has become one of my favourite smoothies ever. It reminds me a lot of the peach smoothie you used to be able to get at Orange Julius. I used to go there everyday for that thing! It was my all-time fave. I made a half batch as I was only making it for myself. For that I used half a small banana (anything more and I think it would be too much) and 2/3 cup fresh sliced peaches. Mine was smallish and badly needed to be used up so I tossed in a bit more than half. I did not peel the peach as I don't find it to be necessary. Plus...it's a pain. Since I had no orange-flavoured yoghurt I decided to improvise and used plain yoghurt along with 1/2 tbsp oj concentrate. After tasting I found it needed no sugar made this way. Everything else stayed the same. Total heaven. It's thick, creamy, orangey, peachy and sweet! If you like oranges and peaches you'll love this! I have had this for three days in a row now. I am addicted!

Maple Salmon
Omitted the garlic salt (too much salt in the soy sauce anyway), used about a tsp of minced garlic and used medium amber maple syrup to be exact and wow is this good. I love how everything beautifully plays off of each other. The soy sauce, the garlic, the maple. You can taste it all. I'm not usually one for sweet dishes but I love this. It's not super sweet but a bit mildly sweet instead. So unless someone just hates anything sweet they'd probably like this. Definitely something I will be making again and again.
