Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes
Love these! They turned out just about of perfect. After reading reviews I made some minor adjustments: a bit heavier on the spices (rounded off the spoons, added cinnamon, and an extra 1/4 tsp salt), and used half & half white & brown sugar. Flavor and texture are just right! Can't wait to see how the frosting turns out. Uodate: great frosting, too! I didn't have any oranges, so I used clementines instead. Really nice flavor with the pumpkin & spices.

Chef John's Lemon Bars
Made them exactly as per Chef John's recipe & they turned out perfect! My husband thought they were a bit too sweet for his taste so maybe next time I'll reduce the sugar &/or increase the lemon. But the crust was perfect, the custard developed the white glaze Chef John mentions, and the timing was just right. I topped them off with some black raspberries I'd just picked & it gave them an extra little festive touch. Definitely a keeper!

Creamed Cabbage
Love this! What a surprise! My CSA loaded me down with a huge cabbage at the beginning of November. There are just two of us & my husband only likes coleslaw, which isn't my idea of a cold weather dish! This creamed cabbage turned out so good I almost ate half as soon as it was cooked. I didn't have any sour cream on hand so I just used a little half & half with a drop of vinegar. I think it would've been just fine without it, too. Yummmee! I feel compelled to comment on Michael Jackson's negative critique. although he says he followed the recipe exactly, I suspect he didn't give the flour enough time to absorb the grease & cook. My cabbage was anything BUT GREASY,
