Baked Oatmeal
As written, this is an excellent, crowd-pleasing, very tasty, very easy recipe. I like to prepare this recipe as directed when I have overnight guests. It's a little rich for a weekday breakfast with the family though, so when I'm just making it for the kiddos, I cut the butter, the brown sugar, and the salt in half. The end result is drier than the original recipe and the consistency is similar to a fluffy scone, but it's still delightful, easy, tasty, and even my toddlers enjoy it. This is also a very versatile recipe as well. One variation I like is to add a cup or two of chopped apples, plus an extra teaspoon of cinnamon, a half teaspoon of nutmeg, and a quarter teaspoon each of ginger and cloves. Thank you for a wonderful recipe and a new breakfast staple in our home!

Vanilla Glaze
I make this glaze exactly as directed, except of course that there must be a typo about the milk (like everyone else says, it needs to be tablespoons, not teaspoons), and it turns out perfect every time. It's the only glaze I use anymore because it's so reliable, delicious, and sets so nicely. Thank you for a great recipe!

Banana Crumb Muffins
I don't understand how anyone who has ever tasted these muffins could give them anything less than 5 stars. It's not just that they taste irresistibly delicious, but the texture, the appearance, the aroma, everything about these muffins is perfect. As written, the recipe is exquisite and well deserves it's 5 stars. For a fuller bodied or more autumn taste, I do agree with the recommendations to add to the batter 1 t. vanilla, 1 t. cinnamon, 1/2 t. nutmeg, and I also added about 1/8 t. cloves, and used 1/2 C. white sugar and 1/4 C. brown sugar. To the crumb, I added the recommended 1/8 t. cinnamon, and would also recommend adding a pinch of salt if you're butter isn't salted. Finally, I always make these with 100% whole wheat flour and no white flour, and the end result is the most delicious muffin I've ever tasted. Thank you for sharing one of the best recipes in my family recipe book!
