Maple Walnut Pumpkin Pie
First: too sweet. Next time I'll use an evaporated milk recipe for the pie. Did use pure maple syrup instead of flavoring, that probably didn't help. Second: a reviewer mentioned she wished she had put more butter in the topping. So I added a tablespoon. But, I should have doubled the butter. The topping didn't melt/cook-- it mostly stayed the same powder it started out as. Third: it's still good, didn't hear any complaints, and it was eaten very quickly. Used a walnut pie shell from this site; that was awesome.

Coconut Pecan Frosting I
Its ok. Good. I'm just used to the evaporated milk recipe and this taste too sweet to me. Or maybe candy-like as another reviewer said. Because of the reviews saying the flavor was less nuanced than the other recipe, I added a few drops of almond extract and maple extract. Figured that would be to little to taste but might help. Also, I made a double batch because this recipe makes less than the other, and we like lots of coconut pecan frosting.

Savory Quinoa Muffins (Gluten-Free)
A good concept, but much too 'savory.' Used 3 large eggs and I think I got the texture right for the recipe. It made 1 dozen, loosely spooned into cups. You can tell by the recipe that this is not a batter. They were somewhat greasy. I suspect I will try it again, because it is a good idea, easy, and something new for a quick breakfast. Will not add Worcester sauce at all. Did not use garlic and won't use any of the spices listed. Will make more like baby quiches. I think the quinoa will make baby quiches have enough texture and chew to be filling. Will mix 3 eggs and maybe a cup of milk into the quinoa, spinach and cheese, then put into parchment muffin cups. I'm thinking the bacon didn't do much for it, so unless I have some just waiting around bored, I'll probably leave that out also. Anyway, I still think this is a good idea and could be excellent once adjusted to my tastebuds. This recipe as written is too 'savory' for any time of day, especially breakfast. I took pictures and will try to upload them. If it works, one photo is before baking, and one after.
