Whole Wheat Pumpkin-Applesauce Muffins
Spongy texture. Not enough pumpkin/spice flavor. A little gritty (I'm not sure what caused the grittiness). Edible, but not very good.

Honey Whole Wheat Bread
Great recipe! I made a few changes the 2nd time around, and now make this weekly, with the following changes: use melted butter in place of oil, increase salt to 1 tsp, decrease yeast by about 1/4 tsp, increase honey to 4 Tbl, and use 1/2 cup bread flour & 2 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour. Delish! I've had trouble off & on with the bread rising very high, but then collapsing during the final hour. The bread still has great taste, and texture, but just doesn't look as nice.

Hash Brown and Pork Chop Casserole
I have made this several times over the years, and it's become a staple at our house. I have made some changes along the way though. I basically follow the recipe except sometimes I use cream of mushroom soup if I happen to be out of celery. Instead of using chopped onions, I use durkee french fried onions in the potatoe mixture and I also top the chops with cheese and a few durkee onions during the baking time. I also season the chops liberally with grill seasoning, and then brown them in a mixture of olive oil and butter. Thawing the potatoes first helps it cook faster as well.
