Wonderful Banana Cake
I used a box of spice layer cake, and added @ 1/3 cup of sour cream, a dash of nutmeg, @ a tsp. of cinnamon and @ 1/2 cup chopped pecans along with the tsp. of baking soda. I also used 3 med. sized bananas, and prepared the cake mix according to directions. I baked in a preheated 350 oven for the recommended baking time on the package. I made 2 round (9") cakes. When cooled, I frosted them with a basic cream cheese frosting. Delish!

Roasted Red Pepper Chicken
I'm giving it a 5 star rating based on my adaptation of this recipe. I chopped up roasted red peppers, and mixed in some sundried tomatoes, shaved Parmesan, oregano, basil and minced garlic. Then I secured them with toothpicks (I really loaded in the stuffing!) Then I seasoned panko bread crumbs with sea salt, pepper, and a little more garlic. (Use whatever you like) I then browned the chicken in olive oil, til nicely browned. A did up an appropriate amount of basmati rice, and just before it was done cooking, I put it in a casserole dish with the chicken breasts on top. I then topped it all with the sour cream mix, which I seasoned up. Baked it for @ 20mins. in a 350 oven. Check and add chicken broth if the rice starts to look dry. You can really do any variation with this dish. Next time I'll do an Aegean chicken with feta, Greek olives, oregano, etc. Adjust the seasonings to suit your family's taste.

Michael's Foccacia Bread
I have made this 3 times in the past 2 weeks. I add sun dried tomatoes, Greek black olives (sliced) and an assortment of herbs (oregano, basil, rosemary etc.)to the batter. You can pretty much add whatever suits your taste. It makes excellent panini sandwiches.
