Gingerbread Boys
As someone who isn't a big fan of gingerbread, this recipe completely won me over. I substituted molasses for corn syrup and didn't have any ground cloves, but it was still delicious! Roll the dough thin or thick depending on how chewy/crispy you want them. Mmm. The whole house smelled like Christmas :)

Sex in a Pan I
A very good, easy to follow recipe that I made very few adjustments to. First off, the prep time posted doesn't take into account all the time you need to cool each layer. The crust took at least twenty minutes to cool, and every layer after that needs time to set. I followed the advice of some previous reviewers and used an 8 x 11 pan rather than 9 x 13. It worked great--the top layer of whipped cream just reached the top of the pan. I never use instant pudding and I had a bit of a problem with those layers--it started to set in the bowl before I could pour it into the pan! I added a little extra milk to make the pudding easier to pour, and everything worked out swimmingly. I used extra pecans, melted chocolate and sliced strawberries to garnish. I really like this as a base recipe--you could add layers of banana or other fruits, different flavors of pudding, or infuse the whipped cream with chocolate, coffee, etc. A good recipe I'm sure I will be making again!

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins
Very good! I doubled the recipe and made a dozen with crushed pecans, and a dozen with semi-sweet chocolate chips. I read what some previous reviewers mentioned and halved the sugar to 1/2 cup per batch. Also, the cooking time was only about 25 minutes. Still, very moist and flavorful.
