Lemon Pie Bars
I made a few adjustments to the recipe and it turned out great! I used the juice of 3 lemons so I doubled the amount for the filling but left the crust the same amount. I also used the zest of 2 whole lemons and cut the sugar in HALF! I personally love the citrus taste so like that they were perfect, very tangy and lemony and not too sweet. I also sprinkled some coconut flakes on top during baking and it was delicious! I had to deduct a star because without these adjustments it would have been much too sweet and too much crust for me.

Beef Stew IV
Great BASIC recipe that needs a lot of pepping up to be excellent. I added a can of chopped tomatoes, chili powder, tomato paste, a splash of red wine, and changed the water to beef stock. I also added more garlic and Worcester sauce, some dried Mediterranean spices, and 3 stalks of celery. Once I did all that, it was delicious. This is a good basic recipe that can be added to as desired. I'll make again but with my own changes.

Banana Sour Cream Bread
This banana bread is the bomb! I have tried out 2 other mediocre recipes from this site (despite great reviews), but this one is def the best. I made some changes: I baked the entire batter in one large bundt pan, adjusted the baking time to 165 Celsius and baked for 1 hour, then on 150 Celsius for another 30 minutes. It definitely needed the extra time to be thoroughly done. I also reduced the sugar, about 200 grams less in metric form, and it was definitely sweet enough with the very ripe bananas. So I would suggest using much less sugar at first, and adding more if you find it not sweet enough. I think it would be too sweet for my taste with the called for amount. I also added extra spices like nutmeg, clove, and cardamom. This cake really tastes like bananas! It's very flavourful, moist, but still fluffy. I left out the walnuts and am glad I did, the banana flavour is enough for me. I used completely brown, mushy bananas which were ready to be thrown away, which were perfect for this! Great recipe, thanks for sharing. :)
