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!

Apple Crisp II
This recipe is perfect as written, but after reading other reviews, I decided I should double the crumble and add a layer to the bottom. Definitely don't regret it, but it came out really sweet! So to remedy this, I'm putting a dollop of vanilla yogourt when serving it because it adds a tangy creaminess that balances the sugar very, very well.
