Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2014
So, I have to give it 4 stars only because I modified it a bit, so I don't know how it would be exactly as written. The bread turned out delicious, some of the best pumpkin bread I've had!!!! Here's what I changed: decreased oil to about 2/3 cup, added 3-4 tbsp milk, reduced white sugar to 1.5 cups, added about 1 cup brown sugar, and added 1/2 cup dried cranberries and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. It did take longer to bake, and I'm not sure why. I think it was a good hour and ten minutes.

August Fig Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2014
Made these almost as written -- I probably used more figs than called for and added a little more cinnamon (oh, and one time I added nutmeg) -- and they are delicious! I gave them to a friend and her son, and he said he never realized I was such a good baker. :) I accidentally melted the butter the second time I made these, and they still turned out great. One thing I noticed is that the cookies on the bottom rack tended to get dark on the bottoms before they were quire done.

Cornbread Muffins I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
On the plus side, these came out moist with good flavor. On the downside, I took them out at 20 mins, and they were overbaked. Several had burnt bottoms. I suggest checking them at 18 mins. After reading some reviews, I cut the sugar to 1/2 cup and used canned corn instead of frozen. I also beat the sugar, butter, and honey first and then added the eggs one at a time. I don't know if that made a difference, but they were pretty dense. I served them with chili (pumpkin turkey chili, from this site, albeit modified), and people liked them but didn't love them.
