Banana Sour Cream Bread
This is my go-to banana bread recipe! I use brown sugar in the batter instead of white sugar and cut it down to 2 cups. In addition to dusting the bread pans with the cinnamon-white sugar mixture, I also sprinkle some on top of the batter before baking. This gives it a light crispness on top and is my fiance's favorite feature of this banana bread! Thanks for the recipe!

Buttery Soft Pretzels
Good recipe and tastes just like mall pretzels! My fiance loved them! However I did make adjustments according to some of the previous reviews: kosher salt in the dough, decreased the flour (I used 4 cups and still had to add bit of extra water), covered the dough with a damp kitchen towel, lowered the temp to 400F, and brushed the pretzels with melted butter straight out of the oven. I also used 1/3 cup sugar in the dough. One important note--USE PARCHMENT PAPER. I baked the first set of pretzels on a greased baking sheet and they completely stuck to the sheet! So, I used lightly greased parchment paper for the second set and they came off just fine. Also, I think the amount of the baking soda solution is wasteful--4 cups is excessive. Next time I'll halve the solution--2 cups hot water with 1/4 cup of baking soda. Thanks for the recipe!

Guacamole
Great go-to recipe for guac. I often vary the amounts of each ingredient based on taste and desired chunkiness. I also add chopped, fresh jalapeno and ground black pepper--we like spicy!! My fiance loves this and asks for it all the time!
