Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
I make Pumpkin Bars this time every year & I have people who wait for me to make it & beg....this bread is even easier & is the BEST pumpkin bread I have ever had. I took what I had read & changed it according to the person with the highest popularity, don't know her name. But I kept reading to add a cinn butter to the top & it took me a long time to find that, so here it is if ya'll are having the same problem I had. Glaze: 1 cup powdered sugar, 5 tsp. milk, 2 Tbsp. melted butter (i used salted), 1/8 tsp. vanilla, 1/8 tsp cinnamon & 1/8 tsp all spice. Add all those ingredients together & right after you ake the bread out of the pan, stick a toothpick all over on the top of the bread & spoon the mix over the top. It will melt down the sides & look beautiful. YUM!!! I am going to make this bread for Christmas gifts this year but put the glaze in small containers with lids so that I can wrap the bread & make it look cute, but still have the glaze that they can add if they would like :)

Stuffed Green Peppers I
This is the first time I have ever made stuffed Green Peppers. My whole family, including my son's 11 year old friend & my 13 year old daughter, loved these!! I did use others ideas. I did 3/4 cup rice & water & I added all seasonings you would put in spaghetti sauce, like Italian, Parsley, Basil, garlic salt, Oregano & of course 3 fresh garlic cloves. I also used only 1 can of the soup, as I do not like too much tomato flavor. I also put the meat mixture in 1/2 way, then the soup, then more meat & more soup & did not top it with more cheese. It didn't need more & I do count calories. This was a really nice, filling dish!!

Fluffy Pancakes
This recipe was easy & good. I was a bit scared of the "sour milk" thing & I really dislike vinegar to begin with. But it turned out great. I doubled it so I could freeze the leftovers for the kids for their school week & I added 1 teaspoon of both cinnamon & vanilla, as I always do to any pancakes. And of course, chocolate chips for the kids & yum, it was good. My kids ate twice the amount the usually eat of the boxed stuff!
