Chocolate Cream Pie II
This was easy to throw together and thickened up quicker than I thought it would. I wanted it really thick and rich, so I followed the advice of reviewers and added an extra tbsp of cornstarch. I also threw in a tbsp of PB. My 2 yr old son said we should add marshmallows, which I thought might be a great idea, but instead I toasted some and used them as the topping (with a graham cracker crust!). When chilled, it didn't set up as stiffly as I expected (more like pudding) but the flavour was outstanding!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue
I am really impressed with a)how easy this was to make, and b)how GOOD it turned out. Gotta love a recipe that gives you a great return on investment ;) I actually used a thawed 1 lb turkey breast, with "Diana" bbq sauce, and balsamic vinaigrette for 3 hours on high. Only regret was that I didn't make coleslaw with it. Can't wait to try it again, especially since I ate it all before my hubby got any!!!

Banana Banana Bread
I've made this several times, and I love the amount of banana that goes into it, as well as how simple the recipe is. The last time I made it, I only had enough bananas to make half what was called for so I subbed pumpkin puree in for the rest and added about a quarter cup maple syrup. It turned out really nice! One time I added 3/4 cup of cocoa powder, and the chocolate version was great. To the original recipe, I always add a cup of walnuts because I love them, and a healthy dash of cinnamon because it helps regulate blood sugar and lower the glycemic index :) One other tip is when I use my wider, more shallow silicone baking dish, the bread only takes 45 min at 350. Less waiting to dig in!
