Good-Morning Banana Nut Cereal
SO TASTY!!!! A bit more time-consumming than some other recipes, but totally delicious and well worth the time. I don't have oat bran, but I've successfully used both wheat germ and ground flaxseed in its place. Also, I LOVE cinnamon (and it's actually very healthy), so I added between 1/2 - 1 tsp. Additionally, I used raw pumpkin seeds rather than the walnuts as I am vegetarian and the provide extra iron, aside from the fact that they add a delicious crunch. Lastly, the vanilla is a must - it makes the dish. A great way to start the day.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
This recipe is a winner. If you would like to have a similar flavour and have it be slightly healthier on all fronts, I suggest you try my alterations: 2 cups homemade sweet potato puree, 4 eggs, 1/2 cup olive oil, 2/3 cup buttermilk (or yogurt), 2/3 cup water, 1 cup white sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, 2 cups all purpose flour, 1.5 cups whole wheat flour, 2 teaspoons baking soda, 1.5 teaspoons salt, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, 3/4 teaspoon cloves, 1/2 tsp ginger. It is great as written, and very easy to customize with what you might have on hand.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
This is a great recipe. Adding chopped candied ginger was a wonderful suggestion. Mmm-mm.
