Janet's Rich Banana Bread
These are delicious. Very moist and yummy. I followed the recipe exactly, but I turned my bread into muffins and added 1 more banana, just because I had 3 browning bananas on the counter that I didn't want to waste. I also added a small handful of chocolate chips ;) For muffins, you just cut the cooking time in half or so. I just checked them after 20 minutes until a toothpick came out clean. It made 24 muffins. Yum!

Coconut Cream Pie
Really good - I've made this a couple of times now. I follow the recipe exactly, perhaps adding a bit more coconut. Use unsweetened coconut flakes for less sweetness, or sweetened if you prefer it sweeter. I like the idea of using coconut milk in place of some of the milk - I'll have to try that sometime! So Delicious makes an unsweetened coconut milk beverage that would be a great replacement. I top with whipped cream, then sprinkle with toasted coconut and mini chocolate chips. :)

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are a good chocolate chip cookie. I did use less white sugar and more brown sugar - 1/2c white and 1 1/2c brown, and I also used around 1c whole wheat flour and 2c white flour. I sort of decided at the last minute to make these, which is why I made most of the adjustments - I didn't have enough of the necessary ingredients on hand - else I would have likely followed the recipe as is. I also halved the recipe because I only had 1 stick of butter, and I ended up with exactly 2 dozen cookies. 10 minutes at 350 definitely did not seem like enough - they were still quite uncooked. Maybe it's because I sort of rolled the dough into a ball and then squished it a little, but I had each batch in the oven for about 14-16 minutes. I'm even a fan of under cooking cookies slightly and letting them finish on the hot cookie sheet because I am always afraid of overcooking them. I baked them about 3 hours ago and they're still perfectly soft and chewy in the center, crispy on the outside. I'll likely keep using this recipe :) They are yummy.
