Chocolate Chip Banana Bread II
This bread is amazing! Absolutely delicious. I have been searching for the perfect banana bread recipe and I have finally found it. I tried a recipe with just shortening, and it came out too dense; I tried a recipe with sour cream and it came out sort of mushy; the secret with this recipe is the tiny bit of mayo and it makes all the difference in the world! I didn't change a thing in this recipe, besides cutting it in 1/3 because I only had two bananas. What a mistake! The entire loaf went so quickly among my friends and family that I was left wishing I had made the other two pans. This recipe is a definite winner and I will be using it several more times!

Venison Chili
I gave some of this chili to my neighbor over egg noodles and he told me it was the best venison chili he's ever had! I followed the recipe almost exactly except I took some advice from previous reviewers (more chili powder and cayenne pepper for more spice, only two cups of wine) and I only had dried cilantro. I also added a little touch of my own- corn! Because my boyfriend loves it in chili. We tried it over brown rice at my boyfriend's request, over mashed potatoes at his brother's request, AND over egg noodles at my neighbor's request and it was all fantastic! I finely diced fresh venison stew meat, and it was a huge hit, although personally I would have preferred it with ground venison. Anyone who gives this a bad review is nuts in my opinion!

Chocolate Candy Bar Cake
I am a VERY inexperienced cook so when I decided to make my own birthday cake for my 25th the pressure was on! I followed this recipe almost exactly. Like other reviewers, I used Heath bars and omitted the nuts. I also used only two layers- just baked them longer. It was a hit! All the good reviews are true. This cake is SO easy to make. My boyfriend's mother is an excellent cook who does everything from scratch including cakes so I've always wondered if I could measure up- well not only did he tell me this was the best cake he had ever had, but he asked me to make the same one for his next birthday! You really can't go wrong with this recipe! : )
