Pumpkin Pancakes
Great with 1/4 cup chopped pecans! Use butter in the skillet or add to the pancakes afterwords to greatly enhance the flavor. These are hearty, fluffy pancakes. DO spread/flatten the batter on the skillet. If you don't thin it with milk, don't expect to see bubbles rise to the surface as the pancakes cook - it won't happen. Just watch it and flip when underside is golden brown. Thinning with milk or buttermilk works fine too, but it does thin the flavor a bit too. But most of pumpkin flavor is in the spices anyway. It doesn't say what kind of vinegar to use - I used apple cider vinegar & will do so again. I think it brings out the pumpkin flavor. This recipe is great any time of year! As with all pancakes, mix wet ingredients into dry until just moistened and a bit lumpy. Add pecans or chocolate chips. Thanks Ruth!

Slow Cooker Barbeque
This just didn't turn out for me. I think it's all about the sauce & meat you use. I used Jack Daniel's, and maybe it is just too thick to not have extra liquid. Also, my meat was a leaner cut. After about 7 hours, I had a burned, sticky pile of inedible expensive ingredients. It was SO disappointing. It seems to have worked for others & my crockpot is not usually hotter than average, so I think it comes down to the sauce & meat selected. I recommend making this (the first time) when you are able to check on it after 4 hours and adjust the liquid if needed.

Sauteed Apples
Perfect exactly as written! That being said, I can see how it could easily be adapted to suit individual tastes or for different applications (e.g. adding vanilla if using for a dessert or pancake topping). Next time, I'll add an extra apple (just to lighten it up per serving.) Also, I would say it serves 6 not 8 - It's so good, you are going to want a larger serving!
