Garlic Broccoli Salad
I made a loose interpretation of this recipe because of ingredient limitations and my own inability to follow instructions longer than two steps. So this is what I made: 4 cups broccoli chopped, 2 tbls olive oil, 4 cloves garlic (because I knew 2 just wasn't going to cut it), 1 tbls peanuts (didn't have pine nuts on hand), 1 1/2 tbls rice vinegar, some paprika and THEN some cayenne (because I can read like a Big Girl). One thing that I did pretty different was that I fried the peanuts and the spices together, which I think helped boost the flavor issue. I also ate my dish warm instead of cooling it. It turned out great! I'll definitely eat it again. As for not getting a little bit of everything in one bite, I would have to say I found it effective to stab the broccoli at the end and use the top to mop up the peanuts and garlic. Mmm, num, num.

Irish Bananas
I have to agree that this is the best banana desert I've ever had. Though I did sub whiskey for rum since we didn't have whiskey in the house. I love it and would actually make this again in the future.
