Chocolate Oil Cake
I've made wacky cake for years, I learned it from my Nana who grew up during the depression. I couldn't find her recipe tonight, so when a chocoholic gets a craving, Allrecipes to the rescue again! This recipe was really good! Since there are only 2 of us in the house, I cut the recipe in half and baked in an 8x8 pan about 30 minutes. Every wacky cake I've made, I always add a little extra cocoa powder(about a tablespoon) since that is what my Nana did. I did change up this recipe slightly, I used half water, half orange juice, and it gave the cake a fantastic flavor! If you like those chocolate oranges at xmas time that you throw on the ground to break, then try this with the orange juice! I made a quick glaze for this with some powdered sugar and orange juice. Even with just the 2 of us, I don't think this cake will last past breakfast tomorrow morning! Thanks so much for the recipe! :)

Restaurant-Style Chicken Tenderloins
I made this for dinner tonight, and it's definitely a 5 star dish, but I have to rate this 4 stars because it says to discard the extra marinade. DON'T THROW OUT THE EXTRA MARINADE! Throw the marinated chicken and all the marinade in the skillet, it looks like a lot of liquid, but it cooks down and caramelizes(about 30 minutes). The result is really flavorful, juicy chicken! I had a pound and a half of chicken, so I upped the zesty Italian dressing to 3/4 cup. I didn't measure the lime juice or honey, but I probably used close to 2 tablespoons(maybe?) of each, which is just a personal preference. I served it with stove-top stuffing, lima beans and biscuits with honey butter...tasty, fast meal! I made an extra 1/2 pound of the chicken, just so I would have leftovers for lunch tomorrow, plan to put it on top of a salad, which I'm sure will be fabulous! I have to say this tastes WAY better than Cracker Barrel's grilled chicken tenderloins...and costs a whole lot less! Thanks so much for the recipe! :)

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins
I love peanut butter and banana sandwiches..why have I never thought to make peanut butter banana muffins before??? Wow, these were so good! I was nervous if these would come out good based on other's reviews, but I'm so glad I tried it! I think the ripeness of the banana/type of peanut butter is why it got all these mixed reviews. The bananas should be really ripe, the skin should be almost black. Yellow or green bananas don't have much taste to them on their own, so you definitely won't taste them baked with other ingredients. I switched to using natural peanut butter(the kind you have to stir), a few years ago, and there's such a taste difference from the other stuff(Jif, skippy, etc). The natural stuff, I have a jar of Smucker's right now, actually tastes like peanuts! lol It makes a HUGE difference, taste wise in baked goods. I would suggest investing in a PB mixer though if you switch, about $10. Anyways, sorry for the ramble! I made this recipe as written, only thing I added was pumpkin pie spice, which I always add to banana bread and I used oats in place of flour in the topping. Thanks so much for the recipe, definitely 5 star worthy! :)
