Libby's® Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
I was really worried about the "rolling and unrolling" of the cake part but it was really quite easy! You can find a video of how to do it on ehow.com. Also, follow the great advice of member cookntaste about using wax paper instead of the towel. This really is a much better idea. I also substituted 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice instead of the 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. cloves and my family liked it much better. I have found that kids do not like the flavor of ground cloves - too sophisticated for them I guess :)

Carrot Bread I

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2010
I baked this bread after my pediatrician suggested making these types of breads (zucchini, carrot) for breakfast to try and sneak some veggies into my toddler's diet. The whole family loved it! I substituted 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour for 1 1/4 cups of the all purpose flour, cut down the coconut to only 1 cup (many people said 1 1/2 cups was way too much) and left out the cherries and it tasted great. I made sure to use my food processor to basically MINCE the carrot, coconut, walnuts and raisins because I knew if I left them as instructed (shredded/chopped) my toddler would refuse to eat it with so many conflicting textures. It was a great call - seemed to meld the flavors even better and he gobbled it up. I HIGHLY recommend this bread to any Mom trying to be "deceptively delicious" and sneak veggies into their kids diet:)

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
I baked this bread after my pediatrician suggested making these types of breads (zucchini, carrot) for breakfast to try and sneak some veggies into my toddler's diet. The whole family loved it! I substituted 1.5 cups whole wheat flour/1.5 cups all purpose flour and cut down the sugar to 2 cups and it tasted great and was still plenty sweet. I may even try to cut down the sugar another 1/4 cup next time and see how that goes. I HIGHLY recommend this bread to any Mom trying to be "deceptively delicious" and sneak veggies into their kids diet:)
