Cocoa Banana Bars
These are wonderful and I am definitely not a big banana fan (I love banana bread but I don't like eating just plain old bananas). This is probably the first recipe I followed to a T in a verrry long time since all of the top reviews advised changing nothing and offered no alteration suggestions (you never see this on allrecipes!). The texture was much more cakelike than I had expected and the batter rose up in the pan quite a bit, so that was a pleasant surprise. Next time though, I want to add chocolate chips to the batter to give it a little more chocolate "umph" :)

Sweet Potato Pie I
I've never had sweet potato pie before so I decided to make one and this was wonderful! I've never been the biggest pumpkin pie fan (I've always thought it was a little too bland) and was hoping this would be a sweeter, more flavorful replacement and sure enough it was. The only change I made was using 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar, also I used two cups of mashed up canned sweet potatoes. Loved it!!

These were good despite the fact that I used muffin tins (this made 10 mini popovers), however, I will invest in a popover pan for my next batch to make them nice and airy- just how I like them. They were a bit too small and dense in the muffin tins. I did as another reviewer suggested and placed a dab of butter at the bottom of each tin, placed the tin the preheated oven to let it melt, and then added my batter (apparently this was supposed to help them "pop" more). While they didn't pop as much as I would have liked, they tasted wonderful and had a nice, eggy texture.
