Lemon Cupcakes
Great recipe! I made these last night and tried them today and they are delicious. I made one alteration to the recipe by using half a cup of applesauce and half a cup of butter in place of a full cup of butter. I find the applesauce keeps the cupcakes and cakes more moist, makes them more healthy, and you don't even miss the butter. Next time I will add more lemon juice and lemon zest as I like a stronger lemon taste. I made a lemon buttercream frosting to go with them that was excellent (3.75 c. Confections sugar, 1 c. Butter softened, 1 tbsp heavy whipping cream, 1/8 tsp salt, 1 tsp vanilla, and juice & zest of 1 lemon). I'll be making these cupcakes again. Thanks!

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread I
Really delicious banana bread! I've tried many different recipes and this is now my favorite, along with the rest of my family. I made a few modifications to make it a little healthier (and because these were the ingrediants I had on hand): used whole wheat pastry flour instead of cake flour; added 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice; used 1/4 c. butter and 1/4 c. applesauce instead of 1/2 c. butter; used approx 2/3 c. sour cream and left out the buttermilk because I didn't have buttermilk on hand; instead of all white granulated sugar, I did half brown sugar and half white granulated sugar. I absolutely loved the banana bread - full of banana flavor, moist and dense, and all around delicious!

Greek Pasta Salad I
Delicious recipe! I shared this with my co-workers and they loved it. Some reviewers mentioned it being a little strong with the vinegar flavor, but that was a big hit amongst everyone that tried it. Also, I substituted sun dried tomatoes in place of cherry tomatoes since I had them on hand and it tatsted great. Thank you, this was wonderful!
