Brownie Frosting
This frosting is so good!! I have made it 3 times now. It doesn't need any adjustments -its perfect just the way it is. This will be a go to frosting not just for brownies but for cakes and cupcakes as well. The pan cleans very easily which is just another plus! If this comes out at all grainy, I think its only because it was not cooked long enough. When you add the chocolate chips, stir very quickly and for a few minutes to avoid burning the chocolate -or just let it cool for a few before adding them. Thank you CRUNCHM!

Old Fashioned Potato Cakes
Very nice! Would make these again, skipped the vegetable oil and used Pam - sprayed both sides; spray the pan, then put the cakes in and then spray the tops. I keep them warm in the oven on a cookie sheet until I am ready to serve, cooked them in batches of 5. My new go to recipe for potato cakes! Thanks for sharing!

Healthier Banana Banana Bread
This recipe is very good, the bread was very tasty and moist, great texture. I don't think the cooking time is accurate when the oven is set to convection bake. I cooked my loaf for the suggested 65 mins and tested for done-ness with a wooden skewer which came out dry. After letting it cool and cutting into it, there was still some not quite cooked dough towards the top of the loaf. Next time I will increase the cook time to 75-80 minutes on the convection bake setting. Would rather it cook a little longer and become a little browner than have any uncooked dough. I also used a glass loaf pan which could have also been a factor.
