Pumpkin Bread II
I am an inexperienced baker. I had never made bread before last night, but I made pumpkin bread last night using this recipe as a base. My bread was easy to make, and it was delicious. It hasn't even been 24 hours, and one loaf has been devoured...and 1/3rd of the other loaf is gone. I did make a few changes though. I replaced the one cup of oil with 1 cup unsweetened apple sauce. I only used one cup of sugar and 8 packets of stevia in place of the 3 cups sugar. I used 100% whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour (as well as 1/4 cup wheat germ and 1/4 cup ground flax seeds) I sprinkled a teaspoon of sugar on top of each loaf before baking. I spiced it up a little also. I used 1 and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon cloves, 1 teaspoon allspice, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. I also added 1/2 cup grated zucchini to the batter of the second loaf. Despite all these substitutions...the bread was extremely moist (but firm). The way I made it may not be sweet enough for some, but it was perfect for me. Others pumpkins bread is more like cake than bread...but this is definately more like bread. My family loved this bread. My Mom asked for seconds and then thirds!!! She rarely even asks for seconds. Next time, I'll up the pumpkin by 1/2 a cup. I really like pumpkin.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III
I just made this recipe tonight, and I couldn't stop eating the cookies. The cookies were moist and flavorful. I did make some alterations to the recipe though. I used 1/2 cup of clover honey instead of 1 cup white sugar. I used 1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce instead of 1/2 cup oil. I used 1 cup all purpose flour AND 1 cup whole wheat flour. Also, I halved the batter. In one half, I only used the cinnamon to spice the batter. In the other half, I used nutmeg, cloves, allspice, and ginger in addition to the cinnamon. I personally liked the addition of these other spices best. Especially the cloves. I think next time I will try to include cardamom or nuts. Also, I would like to try molasses as a sweetner next time...or orange blossom honey (which actually tastes like oranges). This recipe is easy to make and delicious.
