Pumpkin Sheet Cake
Just made a variation of this recipe using some advice from other reviewers. I substituted 1 cup unsweetened applesauce for the oil and added 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice. I frosted with a cream cheese frosting shared by another reviewer (8 oz cream cheese, 1/2 cup butter, 1 1/2 tsp vanilla, and 2 cups confectioner's sugar -- perfect consistency and perfect amount to cover a 9x13" cake). I used a 9x13" cake pan and baked for 40 min. The cake was moist but I personally found it to be too dense, although my husband thought the density was an asset. Even using the spices I did I think the cake could still use more for enhanced flavor. I will increase the pumpkin pie spice to at least 2 tsp, maybe 2 1/2 tsp, if I make this again, and will consider using only 3 eggs to make a less dense version.

Slow Cooker Cranberry Pork
Pretty good! It was a bit dry, so I may have kept it in the crock pot for too long (I'm not too adept as using a crock pot). Served with baked potatoes and green beans.

Figs with Goat Cheese, Pecans and Bacon
I made this according to the recipe, and served as an appetizer at my parents' xmas eve gathering. It was well loved, esp by the low-carb audience. My young niece still asks me to make it whenever I see her.
