Adrienne's Cucumber Salad
Fantastic recipe. I use fresh dill to taste, because IMHO, dried dill lacks all the flavor of fresh. Also, I cut down the water to 1/4 cup because I like the liquid to have a good bite, and the cucumbers release a lot of liquid all on their own. I've made this recipe about a dozen times and every time I get rave reviews. Thanks!

Big B's Collard Greens
I'm rating this 5 stars, although I admit I made some adjustments, but this seemed like the closest recipe I found to my favorite restaurant's version of collard greens. They turned out great, and I didn't have more than 3 hours to cook 'em! I plan on letting them go longer when I reheat. My biggest alteration in the recipe was adding 4 Tablespoons of sugar for a big pot of greens. Perhaps it's not authentic- I don't know since I didn't grow up on collards- but it brought out a nice flavor. I added a bit more than 4 Tablespoons of regular white vinegar (not fond of the apple cider type), because I like the bite, and only added one ham hock because I'm not accustomed to cooking with them and I was afraid that they might overpower the dish. Only used 3 cloves of garlic b/c they were huge, and ground red pepper because that's what I had on hand. I had a bunch of collards from my CSA farm share. It was 6 enormous leaves, just in case anybody's wondering what a "bunch" is. This made a really big pot- maybe 2 quarts' worth or so. Can't wait to see how they taste tomorrow!

Banana Banana Bread
It took 6 bananas to get 2 1/3 cups of mashed banana. I made the recipe letter for letter. The batter was so moist, I was sure it was going to come out fantastic. It needed more sweetness, however.
