Lola's Horchata
Awesome! I make this recipe daily when my Mexican in-laws are around. I just made it again today for probably the 50th time and didn't have milk so I used 2 cans of evaporated milk, you can use any milk product like soy, almond, etc. I usually like to soak cinnamon sticks with the rice but if you add ground cinnamon with the rice soaking (sometimes for a couple days if I forget) in the fridge and you get the flavor but you won't get the powder floating and choking you as you drink since most of it strains out with the rice. I've used sweetened condensed milk for more richness, no need for any additional sugar then. I've made this so many times now and the recipe is so forgiving, as long as you soak the rice, add whatever else of milk, sugar, and spices to taste. Also best when served frothy, use a wisk or beaters or I put it in a bottle with ice and shake well just before serving. And I always keep the leftover rice to make arroz con leche/rice pudding. Many recipes for it on this site, but just boil the rice to tender in some combination of milk/water/evaporated milk (obviously I'm not one for measuring, I add several cups to make it soupy then boil it down) and add milk/cream/sweet condensed milk and sugar, simmer to thicken, and vanilla/cinnamon/cloves to taste at the end. Thanks Lola!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
Loved it! Took many of the suggestions, subbed one cup of brown sugar for one of the white sugars, used half whole wheat flour, added about 1/3 cup flax seed, added about a tsp of vanilla, and used 1/3 cup melted butter and 1/3 cup oil instead of full cup oil. Still so moist and flavorful! I cooked the 17 muffins for 30ish minutes and one loaf for about an hour 20. Its so sweet no spread needed but a sweet cream cheese would be divine. I think you could cut the sugar also and still have a great bread, the spices and pumpkin are delicious!. Next time I'll top with walnuts...

Easter Breakfast Casserole
This was good, but it was't our favorite. I would add some spices and more onion and peppers, including red, it was bland. Also the texture was mushy with the hash browns, maybe it was just the kind I used but I wanted more texture. Maybe more veggies and a cornflakes crust would help.
