Baked Macaroni and Cheese
I liked it, but I would use less butter next time. My husband calls it "a good mac-and-cheese." Our 3-year-old did not like any of the macaroni that were crunchy, though, only the soft pieces from the bottom. I thought the flavor was good, but I did use two different types of cheese, and I did not hold back on adding salt. It's not the prettiest mac-and-cheese, so I would not make it to serve guests. It was finished @ 30 minutes.

Banana Oat Muffins
We were happy with these. They rose well. Used 1 very ripe banana, and they taste a lot like banana. I did use 1/2 C of whole wheat flour as part of the flour. Next time I'll use only all-purpose flour. For baking soda, they only need 1/2 tsp. Suggest adding crushed walnuts.

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread
Was okay. Didn't "love" it, but we ate it. Only wanted to make 1 loaf, so I cut the ingredients in half (used 2 eggs.) I reduced the sugar and felt this is one of the few recipes that probably needed the full amount. Could not taste the orange peel, so I'd just leave that out next time. For my oven, baking it 50 minutes made it a little too dry.
