Roasted and Curried Butternut Squash Soup
I made this completely vegan, and it was delicious! Almond milk instead of the yogurt, and it worked fine. I upped the level of squash to keep the thickness, and got rave reviews from everyone :)

Banana Sour Cream Bread
I discovered halfway through making this that my sour cream was 4 months out of date, so I improvised with whole milk and vinegar instead, using 11 oz total, instead of the 16 oz of sour cream. Turned out fine! Some people like their banana bread firm throughout, and with a softer crust, but others like it like this recipe, more of a coffee cake texture. It turned out with a lovely crunchy outer coating and very tender inside. More of a bananas foster flavor than the traditional banana bread, but I'm in love. I did have to increase the time of cooking, but it wasn't much. If you don't know basic rules of baking, such as sticking in a knife or toothpick to test how done it is, then you fail at life.

Emily's Famous Marshmallows
The recipe is 5 stars by itself, but the directions are a little unclear, and I made some boo-boos on my own. First mistake was using the egg whites from a carton!!! I was being lazy, and I paid for it. Second mistake was not beating the egg whites long enough. A few more mistakes, and I get something runny (but it still tastes good!) So I'll let it set overnight and see how it turns out. but I'll try my darnedest to get mine as perfect as the ones in the pictures! I'm using a frog mold to get the Peppermint Toads from Harry Potter! I used different recipes in the past, but they always worked out...
