Banana Muffins II
Easy, easy, easy. And surprisingly good, too! Took about five minutes to put together. I followed the recipe, but did add a touch of vanilla, though this could stand on its own without it. Tasty, makes the house smell wonderful. This is a really good recipe if you want to do add-ins like nuts, or chocolate chips.

Easy Lemon Cookies
I tried it yesterday, and then went out and bought another cake mix to bake more today. Surprisingly excellent cookie! I didn't have lemon extract, so I just used lemon juice. A little crisp on the outside, chewy on the inside. I read a lot of people say that it tastes like fruity cereal. Maybe if you use extract, but I found no such flavor in my cookies. It's a lemony flavor. I also decided to roll a few in coconut. They were good, but I don't think they made the cookie itself any better. The first batch I chilled overnight. The second batch I chilled about 30 minutes. If you have time, get the batter cold, but if not, at least wait 30 minutes. The batch makes around 30-33 average-sized cookies. This will be a go-to recipe, and I will definitely try it out with other cake mixes. UPDATE: I tried this with Red Velvet Cake Mix - Bleah. I won't do that again!

The Humble Shepherd
This recipe has its pluses and minuses. On the good side, it's very quick if you don't have a lot of time to make a meal, especially when using instant mashed taters. On the bad side, I wasn't wowed by flavor. It wasn't terrible, but it needs some zip. I added tarragon when I was cooking my turkey. I also used veggie broth as the "gravy" since I don't buy the instant gravy. Adding a bit of ketchup at the table gave it some decent flavor. Perhaps I'll tweap it with tomatoes in my next version. I would do again, but with changes for more flavor.
