Banana Bread VIII

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
I made this once about 2 years ago and I did not care for it. I ran out of eggs again last night and really needed to make banana bread. Grudgingly, I went ahead and tried this recipe again. Like last time, I substituted 1/2 c applesauce for shortening/butter and halved the sugar. Reading more recent reviews, I added 1 tsp of baking powder. I baked it in my conventional oven. From the last experience, I was not expecting much, just something edible to munch on. What a surprise that it came out good this time. Maybe the addition of the baking powder and baking in conventional oven?? I still prefer the Low-Fat Banana Bread I but wouldn't mind if I ran out of eggs more often!!

Grilled Asian Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2008
Very easy. Took some other recommendations - cut the sesame oil in half, added some water (since I did not have low sodium soy sauce). Marinated overnight and it was yummy the next day after the grill!

Asian Avocado

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2008
very simple way to eat avocadoes. I agree with a previous review about not adding too much soy saouce, it definitely overpowers the avocado.

Quick and Easy Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
This was very easy but taste was actually just ok. I agree on doubling the sauce but it was a bit thin. If I try it again maybe I will add cornstarch.

Sweet and Spicy Green Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
I bought fresh green beans and did not steam them since I love the crunch. This recipe was so easy yet tasted so good!

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
This was definitely a different twist to tuna salad for me. It was so good I ate the whole thing! I did not use any measuring utensils, just taste-tested as I went along.

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
i thought this was pretty good, but i agreed with some other reviews that oregano probably did not go best with sweet potatoes. at another suggestion of another reviewer i diced my own onion, substituted the second time with seasoned salt and threw it all in with the diced potatoes, and it was excellent.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2006
Wow, this was a surprisingly great sauce! It does not taste that authentic, but who cares? It tastes delicious. I really should have tripled the sauce! Not ketchup-y at all!

Magic Mango Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
This tasted delicious! I substituted the butter for applesauce and addded vinegar (no lemon juice on hand!) for the baking powder to work. Thus, I didn't have a problem with it rising. My mangoes were actually tart so the sugar called for was fine; otherwise you may want to halve it. The other reviewers were right - this did not taste that great the first day. But by the next day, it was amazing! Thanks for such a great recipe!

Lower Fat Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
I have been using this recipe for years and years and everyone loves it. Just some changes: I substitute applesauce for margarine and I freeze my old bananas. By the time I defrost them, there is already enough banana-flavored water for the 1/4 cup water. I know it sounds gross but it's a complete hit everytime! UPDATE (6/2011): I made this yesterday with yogurt subbing for the margarine and water AND 1/3 c flaxseed for 1/3 c flour. I baked them in muffin pans at 325 for 30-35 min. Still PERFECT!
