Pork Supreme
This recipe exceeded my expectations. I had leftover pork loin & was looking for a way to use it . Based on other reviews, I only used 1 medium onion. I sautéed the onion & added a clove of garlic to some olive oil. I used some salt & pepper as I added each layer. It smelled amazing, even before I made the gravy. I almost did not add the tomato sauce, because the gravy looked so good. I only used a generous pinch of brown sugar. It all came together very nicely. I let it simmer for a bit, and added some water as it thickened. I had a small amount of sour cream & added it at the end, just before serving. I served it over rice with some steamed asparagus. My husband went back for seconds. I will make this again & maybe not even with leftover. It would be great with beef or chicken also.

Stuffed Pattypan Squash
The recipe looks and sounds really delicious. I had a number of squash in different sizes from the garden. Once they were fork tender, all went downhill fast. If I do this again, I think an ice bath would work great to cool off the squash. The squash were too soft & too hot to handle. I had many seeds, that I was trying to pull out of them, as the flesh was disappearing. The squash ultimately fell apart and were a big mess. I had bacon cooked & onion in the skillet, so I turned this mess into a pasta dinner. I added back to the pan what I salvaged, some white wine, chicken stock, parsley, and garlic. It was edible. My husband said it wasn't the best thing I ever made, but it was good. I like the idea of the horizontal slice, and may try that next time. I also think I will under cook the squash, so it is not as soft. This may be operator error, but the seeds were not addressed in the original recipe.

Banana Oat Muffins
The muffins were still very good. They did not rise up over the tin, so maybe leaving out the soda was not a bad thing. My bananas were very ripe, so the muffins were very sweet. I could have cut back on the sugar. They were very moist. I did not use the topping. Honestly, I was not in the mood & it is easier to freeze them without a topping . The only substitution I made was whole wheat flour for the white flour & added some chia seeds. In most recipes, I find the flour interchangeable . The muffins were not greasy at all. The next batch, I will experiment with leaving more of the oats whole, less sugar, & add the soda! My husband thought they were great!
