No Bake Peanut Butter Pie
i have been making a variation of this pie for years and always got rave reviews.I never heard of a version using milk and I understand makes the pie very loose and runny as soon as it thaws.1 1/2 cups of sugar was WAY too much,it makes the pie almost tongue-numbingly sweet and the peanut butter flavor was minimal at best:/ The Cool-Whip adds some volume,but it also ups the sweetness,which this recipe does not need! Cut the sugar by half,add at least 1/2 cup more PB,omit the milk,mix it all up and pour it into an Oreo cookie crust,then freeze for 2 hours.Much better result.The one thing I do like is the ease at which you can make a lower-fat/calorie version;this pie is rich anyway so a small piece will usually do:)

Best Ever Banana Bread
Mmmmmm there is nothing quite like the smell of banana bread baking:)I really liked this recipe,it was a bit on the sweet side so next time,I will add less sugar or perhaps do as others suggested and switch to a blend of white/brown sugar.Nice banana flavor and the buttermilk adds some richness,I used nonfat to save calories but it was still delicious and moist.I also used muffin tins instead of a loaf pan,the recipe made sixteen generously-sized muffins.
