Pumpkin Bread IV
First of all, I am not reviewing my variation of this recipe that may or may not resemble the original, my reviews are always on the recipe as written. As written this is one of the best pumpkin breads I've had. It's sweet but not excessively so, very soft, and almost perfectly spiced. Made in loaf or muffin form it's yummy, especially the day after you make it. Having made this recipe several times the past couple of years, both the recipe as written, and with some tweaks there are some changes I make that result in a five star recipe. You will note that I rated the recipe as written four stars. The four cups of sugar is excessive. I've been reducing the sugar a little bit since the second time I made this. At three cups this is still very yummy, and I prefer the level of sweetness. While I always recommend making a recipe as written the first time, ESPECIALLY if you intend to review it, this is improved with less sugar. Additionally, I now make this with an extra half cup of pumpkin, not only is this more convenient, but the bread is denser and I find the flavor to be a bit better. I have tried this 1 cup of oil and 1/2 cup of applesauce. The taste of the bread was unchanged but I'm not a fan of the sticky moistness that resulted on the top of the bread. Also, I find that adding 1/4 - 1/2 tsp more cloves than called for really elevates the flavor of this bread.

Best Bread Machine Bread
Best bread to ever come out of my bread machine! Following this recipe to the letter I get good tasting white bread that rises beautifully, and needs no adjustments. If you have a breadmaker this recipe is a must.

Colombian Lentils
As written, one star. After adding about four more cups of water than called for in the recipe and cooking for about another 30-45 min to avoid partially raw potatoes, this was finally done. This smells great while cooking but the taste is bland to the extreme. Some recipes are worth "fixing" to your liking, this isn't one of them.
