Banana Coconut Loaf
I like this recipe a lot, but as written it's too sweet. I use half a cup of sugar. I also substitute coconut oil for half of the melted butter, and whole wheat for half of the flour... still lots of calories, but a bit healthier. :-) To make mini muffins instead of a loaf, add 1/4 cup of milk to the egg mixture, and bake in lined muffin tins for 18 minutes. Makes 18 mini muffins.

Hot Spiced Christmas Wine
Delicious... I used whole cloves & added allspice berries too... gets even better as it steeps longer and the ginger bite comes out.

Sausage Soup
Delicious! I made it without pasta and used chicken sausage and fresh basil and parsley from the garden, with a few red pepper flakes as suggested by others.
