Jalapeno Strawberry Jam
I gave 4 stars because the original recipe wasn't hot enough for me or my family. I used this as the basis for my jam though. The second time around I chose jalapeño peppers that looked like they would be hotter(and they were) and chopped the tops off and pureed the rest, seeds and all. To get hotter peppers find ones that have what looks like stretch marks on them.(milder peppers are smooth and lighter colored) I cut the sugar in this recipe in half to allow some of the heat from the peppers to stick around. (The sugar tones them down a lot) The last change I made was that I used the Ball pectin that comes in a jar to measure out by tbsp. I like to use low to no sugar added pectin in my jams because I always add a lot less sugar than recipes generally call for. I use almost a tbsp for each cup of strawberries. This time around it came out just like I was hoping for. I think my sister and my aunt will love it! Oh, also I puree my strawberries instead of just mashing them. Which is also why I add more pectin to help it set better.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cake
Update, I've made this one a couple of times and the kids absolutely love it every time. If you use over ripe bananas it is plenty sweet, in fact I lowered the sugar in mine the second time….. I used two small bananas and added 1/4 cup of flax seed meal, added a tsp of vanilla and used baking soda instead of baking powder. I also subbed half the flour for whole wheat flour and made it into muffins instead of a cake. It turned out light and fluffy making 12 muffins. It is plenty sweet so there is no need to add more sugar or chocolate chips. I did however use over ripe bananas.

Lemon Coconut Cupcakes
I didn't change a thing in the recipe. The cupcakes were delicious! Perfectly moist and fluffy. I didn't have the ingredients to do the icing but it sounds wonderful.
