Zucchini and Potato Bake
Overall, this recipe was a hit. The cooking time was about right but I recommend to cut your potatos into a bit smaller sized pieces than your zuchini (this helps to combat the too squishy zuchini texture). Also, I added some dill, oregano, onion powder and a lot more garlic than stated. About half way through, I tossed some parmesan cheese in (as recommended by another reviewer) and this dish was pretty awesome.

Pumpkin Pie Squares
This recipe is pretty good, I changed it up a bit based on some other people's recommendations. First I added a few drops of maple (you could also use vanilla) extract to the crust. I also put it in a square 8x8 pan. I put a bit more cinnamon than stated as well. It cam out pretty good, just like bit size pumpkin pies!

Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting
This is a great frosting recipe!!!!!!!!! I was in a pinch (making a last minute cake for a friend)and happened to have all the ingredients for the cake and frosting except for the exorbitant amounts of powdered sugar or butter that most frosting recipes call for. I stumbled across this and made it using 2 tsps. of vanilla and omitting the almond extract. I whipped it with the whisk attachment in my kitchenaid mixer for about 5 minutes and it was fantastic! The honey was a nice touch and seemed to allow the frosted cake to maintain a very nice sheen to it while keeping it's gooey texture (I hate frostings that set up to a shell like or skin like texture)
