Banana Cream Pie I
Banana cream pie was my Grandma's specialty, but I didn't have her recipe, so I thought I'd look for one here. I'm so glad I found this recipe--it was delicious! I made the changes suggested by many--reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup, used cornstarch instead of flour and didn't bake it, just chilled it for about 3 1/2 hours. I had no problems with the custard filling being runny--but I made sure to use whole milk and I cooked the custard until it became nice and thick. I think if you do both of these things, yours should turn out great like mine did. I tossed my cut-up bananas in some lemon juice to prevent browning, but it didn't do any good--they still turned brown. That is my only complaint about this recipe, but I don't see how that can really be prevented. I also folded the bananas into the custard and then put everything into the pie crust--I didn't layer bananas on the bottom first. I topped with Cool Whip since my family doesn't like meringue and this pie was for my son's birthday. If I was making it just for me, I would have topped with fresh whipped cream! All in all, a delicious pie and it was easy to make as long as you follow the instructions carefully.

Mom's Zucchini Bread
By far the best zucchini bread I have even eaten. Mine took a full hour to bake. I made a few changes to make it healthier: substituted 1 of the cups of white flour with whole wheat flour and substituted 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce for 1/2 cup of oil. For the sugar I used 1 cup white, 1/2 cup brown and 1/2 cup Splenda. I added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and omitted the nuts because my family doesn't care for them. I'm eating it warm right now; it's AMAZING!!

Dill Dip II
This recipe was just okay. I followed the recipe exactly and wasn't very thrilled with it. I prefer a ranch dip instead. I won't make it again.
