Soul Smothered Chicken
I have been making this particular recipe for years. This is the best smothered chicken recipe I've ever tried. Anyone who has ever tried it in my familly absolutely loves it! So, this has become one of those "legiondary" recipes in my familly! If you want good southern smothered chicken this is the only recipe you'll ever need again!

Glazed Yeast Doughnuts
I have tried many doughnut recipes and have been baking and cooking for many years, and I say that this recipes makes a great doughnut! They rose very well, were light and fluffy and the recipe was quick to make. For those who rated this recipe poorly, I'm wondering if they didn't knned the dough long enough, or let it rise long enough, thus the cake like texture. As for them not having enough flavor, doughnuts are not very sweet on their own, and unless you are making a flavored doughnut, you get flavor from whatever topping you put on the doughnut,frosting, sugar, etc. If you are new to cooking, don't be afraid to alter the simple glaze with flavor extracts or other ingredients to get the flavor you like. I will say that I opted to not add nutmeg to this recipe, but as stated, this was optional. If you are looking for a spice doughnut recipe, you could add apple pie spice or pumkin pie spice to the mix or just plain cinnemon.

Banana Banana Bread
This recipe is wonderfull! I made it exactly as listed, and it turned our fabulous. For the reviewer who said it didn't have much flavor, your bannana's probably weren't ripe enough. They need to be so ripe that they are starting to run. That's where the bannanna flavor comes from.
