Buffalo Style Chicken Pizza
This was pretty good but I made it my own. I used a homemade crust (I always use this member's recipe I used ranch since we don't care for bleu cheese and limited the amount to 3/4 cup (just enough to cover the crust and trust me that's all you need) I also only used 3/4 cup Franks Hot Buffalo sauce. I topped it with sliced red onion and black olives and brushed the crust with olive oil a few minutes before I took it out of the oven. Something about this pizza was just lacking - maybe it needed more toppings or some cheddar The crust was awesome though! I totally recommend that Pizza Dough I recipe.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
This is really good! I used tips from other reviews: cut the oil to 1/2 cup, added sweetened applesauce (I meant to add 4 oz aka 1/2 cup but accidently put the entire can - 8oz! I was sure it would be ruined but it was still moist and yummy without being oily!) I also added chopped walnuts and an extra 1/2 tsp cinnamon. I used 5 5/8 x 3 1/8 inch bread pans (all I had) and wrapped them as gifts for friends and family. The only reason I didn't give this recipe 5 stars is because it is not quite what I expected - I really wanted a more velvety "pumpkin" texture but then again, this is bread not pumpkin pie. Next time I may add a bit more pumpkin puree and see what happens. I drizzled cream cheese icing on the top of one loaf but actually like it better without it (it's just unnecessary - the bread is pretty and sweet without the added frills) Oh, and it DOES taste even better the next day!

Strawberry Muffins
These were pretty good. I doubled the recipe (lots of boys to feed!)and took another member's advice of adding 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp cinammon, and 1/4 cup brown sugar. I topped each muffin with a thin slice of strawberry and sprinkled with a little brown sugar and cinammon before baking. They came out real pretty. My only critique is that the texture isn't real "bready" like you would expect a muffin to be (I was thining banana bread density), it's a little harder almost like the outside of a biscuit..yummy though! I'll try these again for sure, maybe add another 1-1.5 tsp baking powder.
