Extreme Banana Nut Bread 'EBNB'
This banana bread was certainly tasty, but I don't think there's any reason to be so hysterical about it. I tried this both warm and chilled; I think you can taste the banana better when it's cold. As an adult, I'm used to reduced-fat baking. This bread tasted much like the kind of bread my family used to make when I was growing up. So, again, it certainly was tasty, but the way the recipe is written you'd think SWAT teams would bust through my windows the second I cut it!! :) I added 1 tsp. each vanilla and cinnamon, though I didn't explicitly taste them in the finished product. I baked for 60 minutes total (checking after 45 minutes) and needed to tent with foil because by 45 minutes the top was more than browned enough.

Pumpkin Polenta Cake
I felt that this recipe was a solid "ok". I substituted pumpkin pie spice, but found the end result on the bland side. The texture was the more problematic part for me; it was like moist cornbread, but not in an entirely pleasant way. The cake did rise nicely, which I wasn't expecting. I wish I could figure out what tweaks I could do to make this more to my liking. On the up side, I needed to use up a bunch of polenta, which this did.

Glazed Tofu Meatloaf
I really love how this recipe came out. I leave out the mustard (personal taste) and usually never have peppers on hand so I leave them out as well. Give it a try; I was someone that never would have thought to use tofu for anything edible before I tried this recipe, and since it's so mashed up, I barely even notice it. I substitute ground bison for the turkey and the results are a really meaty tasting, really healthy alternative to my mom's recipe--that tastes just as good.
