Vegetarian Split Pea Soup
I wasn't a fan of split pea soup until I found this recipe - this soup is delicious! The chipotle chili powder adds a nice kick. I cook this on the stovetop since I don't have a pressure cooker. I usually puree half the soup once it's finished cooking so it's smooth but still has a little bit of texture. Also, I leave out the orzo because I think the soup is perfect without it.

Peanut Noodles
Really good! I followed suggestions from prior reviews and tripled the ginger and doubled the red pepper. I didn't have cider vinegar so I substituted rice wine vinegar, and I used whole wheat spaghetti and natural peanut butter because that's what I had on hand. The next time I make this I'll saute some garlic along with the onions and ginger, and reduce the peanut butter just slightly. I'll also add veggies and/or chicken as other reviewers suggested.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
This is the best pumpkin bread recipe I've found. I made the recipe "as written" the first time around and then started to experiment in subsequent attempts - it's always moist and delicious! I usually cut the sugar down to two cups (one white, one brown), decrease the oil to a half cup, add a half cup of applesauce, increase the spices slightly and substitute whole wheat flour for white. I gave away loaves of this over the holidays and everyone loved it.
