Yarjka's Testing Ground

This cookbook is for recipes I find that look intriguing, but may need to be tweaked or worked on in some way to make them healthier or tastier.

If the recipe fails to be as good as it looks, then it will be removed from the cookbook.

This variation on Italian Style Wedding Soup is yumm-o! Even my picky 12 year old can't get enough. The perfect pot of Sunday Soup. (I love to make soups on Sunday and our family eats at their leisure. For dinner I add a 50/50 SPring Mix and Beet Salad with Balsamic & Olive Oil Dressing.

These are a low-fat version of a Banana Bran Muffin recipe I found online. Basically, applesauce is used instead of butter, and Coconut Milk is used instead of Regular Milk (but that's because I didn't realize we were out of milk when I made these -- they turned out great, so I did something right). You might want to up the sugar by a quarter cup, as they're not super sweet. If you like the banana taste to overpower, you might want to lessen the amount of bran you use by a quarter cup or so.
