Banana Bran Muffins
Love these! Sometimes I add cinnamon or semi-sweet chocolate chips, there are lots of variations you could implement! I also use half whole wheat flour and pecans over walnuts, just as a personal preference. They're such a great, wholesome snack on the go!

Frozen Vegetable Stir-Fry
So good and so quick! Only changes I made were adding a squirt of spicy dijon to the sauce and adding some leftover cooked chicken breast to the mix! Served with jasmine rice. Super easy supper and tasted amazing!

Bolognese Sauce
This is just delicious. A bit of a pain in the butt, but totally worth it. I used to just "wing it" when making bolognese, but not anymore-- this will be my go-to recipe from now on! I made a couple changes based on what I had - didn't have any mushrooms so I substituted diced green and red bell pepper, and I also didn't have any ground pork so it was all beef. And it still turned out fabulous!! Next time I will fry my bacon alone first, as other reviewers suggested, so it can get nice and crispy -- I couldn't get it crisped up enough with such a large amount of finely minced onion (I made a double batch, so it was a LOT of onion!). Oh, and I agree with another reviewer in thinking that the recipe must mean to call for tomato paste, not sauce, as sauce is not available in 6oz. cans. I initially added just the equivalent amount of sauce, but it didn't look quite right (too watery) so I added 2 cans of paste to the doubled recipe and it thickened up perfectly!
