Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2012
Okay, this was amazing, and SO EASY (well I took forever since im so OCD about measuring stuff out). But yeah, didn't have any walnuts or sour cream, so I just added a little mayo instead, had the same effect. I was a little nervous since I used the light olive-oil butter instead of normal butter, but it turned out just as great and alot more guilt free! Even though that's a little more expensive, the quality of the ingredients really does make a difference! Im trying so hard to keep my hands off of it!

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2012
Not bad for a healthy alternative. But if you are expecting this to replace brownies, be warned. The texture is more grainy, less fudgey, and flat. But, with a glass of cold milk, it will surely satisfy that sweet tooth

Restaurant-Style Potato Skins

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2012
These sound delicious, but don't have to have nearly the same amount of fat and calories that they have! First of all, I don't think you'll need a whole container of sour cream, I feel like that will overtake the flavor of the potatoes and stuff. Also, try using 2% cheese and reduced fat sour cream, or heck, I even use plain yogurt! I feel like it has the same consistancy and if you add a couple of herbs or other flavorings to it, it will make it a little more flavorful. Also, there's no need to fry it. BAKE, for the same crunch and less oil and fat! So excited to make these!

Karen's Baked Banana Stuffed French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
This was pretty good, but I feel like it could be a lot better. I feel like there was a bit too much vanilla extract. I could literally smell the vanilla when it was cooking. Also, too much banana. I used only half a banana per serving and it still seemed like a bit too much, almost overpowering. Just make sure to cook it completely on the skillet before you bake it, because the baking only serves to melt the banana and make the french toast a little fluffy, not to actually cook it. I would suggest to just use your favorite french toast recipe, put bananas in the middle, and then bake it. Also, put whatever you want in the middle. You can use chocolate chips, strawberries, walnuts, or any other toppings you desire. Don't restrict yourselves to just banana! :)

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
LOVE. It's such an awesome, quick meal. Great for those who want something warm on a cold day or those who are tired of the traditional sandwiches. To make this a little more healthy, try only putting half the peanut butter (i thought 2 tablespoons was overpowering) on whole wheat bread.

Easy Ice Cream Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
This recipe is easy, fun, and tastes GREAT. We made this for a thanksgiving potluck, and it was easy, and fun to decorate with the kids (we made a turkey out of m&ms). We just substituted the chocolate for oreos, since we didnt have any in the house. It may not taste exactly like ice cream cake, but it's still gonna taste amazing!

Panang Curry with Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
this recipe is PERFECT. we didn't put in the fish sauce, yet it still tasted exactly like the one at my favorite thai restaurant! However, we added some bell peppers for a little extra crunch :)
