Banana Flip Cookies

"The cookies are delicious. Could use a little more banana flavor, but that's just a personal preference. The filling, however, was just kind of nasty. Maybe it's because I didn't use that creme yogurt, but I couldn't get it to come together and three cups of sugar makes it way too sweet, but any less and it's not stiff enough. I can't even imagine how sweet it might be with the filling and the dusting sugar. *shivers* If you want to fill the cookies, I suggest finding a good recipe for banana whoopie pie filling. Or just use marshmallow filling and chopped bananas. Again, the cookies are absolutely delicious, but stay away from the filling."

"These brownies are moist and yummy while being low calorie and low fat, and a good way to sneak kids their veggies"

"SnowJo: If you want to skip the Splenda, use 1 1/2 cup sugar. Since Splenda is sweeter than sugar, you might also want to dust the brownies with a little powdered sugar after they've cooled."

"Simple. Easy. Tasty. It's the perfect mid-week meal. The hardest part is zesting the lemon. Marinate the chicken the night before, and you have dinner ready in 20 minutes. My brother said that I could "make it again," which equals the highest praise."

"Wonderful, tasty, and super easy to make. Used tri-color rotini and nixed the mushrooms since we're not huge fans. Earned rave reviews from my family. And it doesn't dry out like dressing-based pasta salads have a tendency to do, even leftover a few days later. A+"

The stuffing was delicious, no doubt about that, but the chicken thighs couldn't hold very much of it. The chicken itself ended up being a little bland. Easy enough to make, just be sure to budget yourself enough time. Looks and smells phenomenal.

This recipe is delicious and so easy to make. I didn't have any turkey on hand, so I cooked a pound of chicken thighs in the oven before-hand. The dish got rave reviews from my family
